It was an average hostel. The pizzas were good that they ordered in for us.
This is the only hostel in the city so not much of a choice. It's way out there in the boondocks!! Hard to see the stop so I missed it and ended up having to walk back on the side of the road. Super dangerous. No wifi anywhere in the hostel. One worker said the tech to come fix it but it was going to be a few days. Communal touchscreen sucked. Female recep lied and said it worked to get me to stay. Jean-Felippe - think his name was - was uber nice and helpful though so that was a plus.
hostel was nice. rooms were big and beds were comfy. Hostel was a bit far from city centre but easy to catch the bus.taxi cost me €14 from train station to hostel.
Great ambient and clean environment. The vending machines are really useful, as it sells snacks, drinks and personal cleaning goods, such as shaving razor. The individual lockers inside the room are also a great advantage. The bus takes you from and to the city center in 15 minutes, so it is not too far, coming every 30 minutes. Breakfast is also included with decent options. The internet though REALLY SUCKS, I could use it for 30 minutes in 2 days.
Reception difficult to find but the place as a whole was good.
Probably the worst hostel I've ever been, and all the people that I met there shared this opinion. The staff is composed by a bunch unhappy/grumpy/helpess people. The cleanliness if the hostel is terrible, lots of crabs in the beds, bathrooms always full o fezes and showers full of pubes. The location is bad as well, it's like 8km from the city center and the only way to get there is by bus. Another thing worth mentioning is the lack of internet, supposely there is but it simply never works..

Ok, when it wouldnt be the only hostel in bologna Id def not stay there. The first guy at the reception was ok, he told me everything I should know except of the stuff about the bus connection to the city, no big deals. The girl the next morning was so unfriendly, she didnt talk at all, gave you annoyed looks when you asked something. Awful person! Its a pretty big garden around the hostel, weak wifi but no computer. breakfast was ok, nothing more. the beds where comfortable and the room big.
The hostel was nice, but no cooking facilities and the location was the worst yet. Located outside the city it was impossible to mooch around the city by foot without bearing in mind the bus schedule. Overall, a nice hostel with a friendly atmosphere. BTW there are no other hostels in Bologna.

Nice atmosphere and cool bar But far away from the centre (bus needed)
Breakfast is only bread and jam. It´s far away from the center.
generally ok. one big, big disappointment - bugs in the hostel room (no. 25). we had to move the beds because the bugs were going up the walls and then onto our bed linen. disgusting. you'd better address this issue.....
on the very outskirts of Bologna, absolutely nothing in the surrounding area very spotty wifi lots of people you can meet and socialize with but I would have rather been able to see more of Bologna by staying somewhere within the city
The Hostel is realy nice to meet people, however is really far from civilization and the transportations passes hour by hour. The Staff is really friendly and the breakfast is decent.
Overall good hostel, value for money. Only thing that lets it down is location, you have to catch a bus from Bologna and its just a random building in what looks like it field, there's not much yo do around the hostel. There was also only 1 power point in the room.
need airaconditionar in the room during the summer
A bit far from the city but very easy to find and convenient if you have a car. Beds and bathrooms ok nice people, there was live music
This hostel has no nice atmosphere at all. The staff was grumpy about every question i had, disturbing their cigarette breaks. There are no kitchen facilities for using, just a small fridgeand a microwave for the ready meals you can buy there. The showers in the womem bathroom looked very old and stinky. At least the room i stayed in was clean and o.k. , the area very quiet andvthe breakfast was really fine. It is easy to reach by bus and timetables were in the hostel.
The hostel is a little far from the city, about 20 minutes by bus, but it's easy to get there. No WiFi which is a little inconvenient and the bathrooms weren't the cleanest, but the bedrooms were clean and big lockers for your stuff. Nice breakfast.
This was the first HI hostel I've stayed at. It was cheap and functional. Bit of a hike from the city centre, 20 minutes on a bus. There are shops nearby, and the area around the hostel is nice. Not much atmosphere or character though. What you see is what you get.
