“Great place for short or long stays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

I stayed in this hostel for 2 weeks while I was in Reggio Emilia and had a wonderful stay!! The location is great and you can get to everything in the city easily. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms. There are huge lockers in every room that you can lock with your room key. All the doors lock automatically upon closure. Since the staff is there 24 hours in the reception, it creates a secure atmosphere. If you are looking for a budget friendly place to stay in Reggio Emilia, I would absolutely recommend this hostel!

Room Tip: The hall bathrooms have many stalls, so you do not have to have an ensuite room.

This hostel was a delight to behold with high vaulted ceilings and wide corridors. Meals were great although late. Laundry facilities on site and available. Wide screen viewing of the Olympics for olympic starved travellers. But due to a faulty door lock we were robbed of cameras and I phones. Management were initially reluctant to contact the police. Statement very brief as only English speaker was the hostel man. 16 year old female questioned on her own despite fathers request to accompny her. Fortunately we had insurance. Don't leave any valuables in your room. A number of people wandering around and a child's birthday party in progress so unable to ascertain who was and wasn't overnight guests.

Room Tip: See the room before you take it and check the door locks.

This hostel is set in an enormous old basilica framing an internal courtyard and surrounded by portico's. Unfortunately, the hostel has made no attempts to capitalise on this setting with their drab offering.
The rooms are basic and straddle cavernous and sterile hallways that make you feel like you are in some sort of asylum...(but are the only inmate).
The bathrooms are even more basic, not that clean with toilets that are in desperate need of repair if not a total overall. (I had to dive my hand inside the cistern to manually flush one of them - as instructed by a not so recently installed notice!! If you catch my drift).
The staff are elusive at best and not that helpful when you do manage to track one of them down.
I know this hostel is budget accommodation, but does it also have to be soulless?!!!
