It's a good place to stay, I was happy.
But I must say before I start, that it's not conveniently located. It's about 30mins away from the train station and 10 mins from the centre of town, in a quiet suburb of Bergamo. You need to get 2 buses and walk up aloooooooot of stairs (it's at the top of a steep hill). I would not reccommend this for the elderly, or for people with alot of luggage (especially luggage with wheels).
That said, the staff is very friendly, professional, speaks many languages. The hostel is clean, large, modern and really well-kept.
Our room (twin share) had a TV with cable, comfortable beds, perfect temperature, constant supply of hot water, hair dryer and Wifi in the room.
Breakfast is the usual italian hostel breakfast (that is, self-serve pre-packed stuff like yoghurt, mini jams and honey, toast and biscuits). It's hard to be pleased with it, but then again, we're not in Germany : )
What else... oh yeah, females have one level and males have another (as in many hostels) unless you book a shared room then you have the mixed level.
If you are staying for 3 days or more, then it's worth the initial and final voyages. (Inbetween, travel is easy, because there's a bus stop outside the front door, and in less than 10mins you're in town). But for short stays, maybe you'd better go somewhere closer to the centre, or to the train station (if you're in Bergamo for airport reasons).
Enjoy this beautiful city!
