I think the staff is really nice and helpful and the hostel has a pretty good atmosphere but the only catch is location. The hostel is very far from the center and there is nothing around almost with the bus it goes faster but the bus don't always come on time we have waited twice for more than 1 hours and we had the plan time

The staff didn't speak English. The hostel was very far away from Bologna, and hard to get to. The wifi was very bad.

The hostel is set in beautiful countryside just outside Bologna. The room was far too hot during the night with no air conditioning and only tiny windows. There was a strange elderly Italian guest who kept wandering around and shouting at things, which made the atmosphere a bit awkward.

Was very late for checkout and they sent me an email saying they didn't care about the lateness they just wanted to know that I was ok because no one had seen or heard from me, how good is that. Can't ask for more plus the hostel was sweet as

Location is not that bad, very easy to find from the railway station. Hostel has great facilities and a nice breakfast included. Staff is friendly and helpful, but sometimes speaks poor english. Would definitely recommend to stay here. Atmosphere is not that great since I was in a room with non-english speaking Italians.

WiFi connection was desperating. There were 4 different nets and only worked poorly one, or two sometimes (always next to reception). Common use fridge doesn't work. In some rooms (and I was in one of these) there is not mosquito avoiding net in the window (july nights may be 23-26ºC outdoor, so imagine indoor not opening the window). One of the receptionists, a woman, was impolite. Finally, the only good thing was the price; there may not be anything cheaper in Bologna and near.

As a student, all I expect to get when I book a room in a hostel is a place where I can sleep in and the availability of a proper shower. However, both of these services where unsufficient: the temperature in the room was far too high and the temperature of the showers was far too high too. I don't have a problem with a place that is not totally clean etc., but I think guests of a hostel can at least expect to be enabled to sleep well and clean themselves well.

such far away from the city centre....but consider there are frequent buses and night buses every day, so it's fine for budget travelers. it's a new hostel and there weren't many people in it, so the wifi was a lot better. very nice staffs with useful help. everything is clean and sufficient. the toilet was fine.

Is a nice and clean hostel, although a bit far from the centre..But is close to the bus stop so it's ok

They have wifi signals but never work. Location is far from city center. There is nothing around this hostel. They have breakfast but it was like snacks. However, considering the price in Bologna, it's ok for one night.

Looks like an old hostel that hasn't caught up with the new kids on the block. Poor location (actually OUTSIDE of the city), towels and soap not included, breakfast included but it's laughable (cereal but no bowls, seriously?), you have to make your bed yourself, stupid rules like 3-night max stay. It's cheap compared to the other options in Bologna but not particularly cheap per se.

The showers were awful (broken shower heads, sinks not draining, you name it)w, the fridge was broken and Wi-Fi was not working most of the time.

For me very nice hostel - the type that I like: peacefull in the nature. Because the other guests, that can be noisy, ear plugs are mandatory! With them it's excellent hostel. It's HI hostel actualy (it's not mentioned on the site). It is on the edge of the town, but the bus stop is in front of it and it's easy to find the stop in the town.

I liked the staff, they were friendly and helpful. All in all the hostel is in its right price range, but its nothing special just if you need a bed to sleep on, that is of course expected. The lack of soap anywhere was main issue for me, also horrible wifi, and lack of plugs in the walls.

Nice hostel but a little far from the city. The staff was helpful with anything we needed and there were buses rather frequently to the city.
