All of the toilets have broken seats. Showers were really bad and location was ridiculous.


Too far from the city center, bathrooms were disgusting and didn't have working wi-if

Dysfunctional internet and an inconvenient location for this hostel made my stay very uncomfortable. Bathrooms were pretty disgusting, and the rooms were uncomfortable due to a lack of personal lights and hospital style bed. Felt more like staying in an insane asylum than hostel.


It was a good place to stay but far from other places.


If you go there at night, watch out not to be stabbed around the hostel. Also, they have literally the dirtiest toilets and showers I've ever seen. Toilets have no seats and the showers are always flooding since the drains don't work. Not the mention all the BED BUGS. Me and my sister got bit all over, and she killed about 50 of them. Disgusting.


The hostel is really far from the city centre. If you have an early flight, forget about it, since the buses go there not before 6.30 or later. If you stay in second building which is 100-200 meters farther, you have to take the linen with you. However, the price is good, breakfast is included and the staff was really friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and shower are rather clean. They sell tickets for city transport, which is very useful.


Too far away, the beds bad, the showers only had hot water (!!!!) , internet was sooooo slow and only available on some places.

Staff are a bit rude and care about you like most hostels. The bus is ok to get you in and out of the city however on Sunday it's only every 2 hours. Lots of insects around, and the insect screen in my room was broken so we couldn't leave the window open or we would have been eaten alive. The cleaner is an angry guy who yelled out me and they are very strict on ending breakfast on time. Thankfully eventually I met some cool people there, but it was pretty quiet


This is the first hostel review I have ever left as this is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. The bedroom smelt repulsive, and it smelt the same on the bedsheets out of the room. The bedroom was like a sauna. The wake up call was awful - this is a hostel, not a boarding school - I do not expect to be woken up by someone entering and turning on the very very bright lights all at once. Brown haired woman was exceptionally rude. No entry for 4 hours. Terrible hostel. Don't go.


The staff were very helpful, which is always a plus, but everything stops there... Far from the centre, and the bus only runs every 30 mins I think. It could be me being picky but I also thought the beds look like hospital beds, I only stayed for one night in the end.


you guys are amazıng. ı wıll reccomend you to my frıends


The bathrooms were very dirty. The rooms were musty. Also having to leave for 2 or 3 hours while they clean was a bit of surprise.The staff was nice. The location was good. The price was good.

This hostel is great for students looking for accommodation (in september its full of students!). The atmosphere is great, easy to make friends. There was no kitchen, which is a disadvantage. The showers were very dirty. Would not recommend for tourists, but great for students! Also, far form the centre and can only be reached by a VERY infrequent 93 bus. (Or take 20 and walk a bit).


Very helpful reception staff. Although toilets are clean they have a quite strong smell, it may be the pipes the ones that need cleaning as well. Great lockers, very big, perfect to lock all your stuff and not just the most valuable things.


I'll give them a good review because I booked the wrong dates and didn't find out till much later and they only charge me for the first night.


Bathrooms smelt disgusting and definitely needed a clean. Having breakfast included was handy though. Very out of the way hostel infrequent public transport.


The place was out of town ( they sell ticket for the bus at the reception at 1.30EU) but my friend and I were so lucky we met a couple in center city who drove us to the hostel. The blue-haired guy at the reception was sooo very helpful. He helped us order food (pizza delivery very cheap and fast and yummy too). Breakfast was great. We were both very pleased. the money you're paying it might as well be. I was happy! It's the four seasons for If i'm ever back in Bologna I know where im staying =D


Excellent place to stay and excellent location if you have a car. Oustanding customer service, Thank you to everyone, expecially to manager Serena. I am Italian but I live in the US. I visit this place 4-5 times per year. Joseph

Hey Giuseppe, thank you very much for you comment: we really appreciate it! See you soon and take care! Cheers, The Staff


일단 시내가아니라 버스타고 20여분정도 걸립니다. 하지만 가격은 시내보다 저렴하구요. 직원도 친절하고 조식도 줍니다. 근데 빵이 너무 싸구려. 그거빼곤 좋아요.
