The walls are very thin so you can hear people in all the other dorms, and the bathrooms aren't always clean. However, it's in a good location and comfy enough for a night or so.

some very strange additional costs : arrival after 7(!!) in the evening costs a penalty of 10 euros,this doesn't feel welcoming at all.and leaving your luggage till 17.00 will cost you add. 5 euros it's really just a place to spend the night,clean and well situated.

The staff is very kind and helpful. The wifi is great. It's in a very good location! The only downer is that the breakfast was small, but that's how Italians do it, so I wouldn't hold that against them. I'd definitely stay here time and time again.

Location, safety, facilities and cleanness are very good. But the service is a little bit bad. If you check out in the morning, you can only deposit your luggage till 2pm, or you have to pay 5 euro for long luggage deposit. And you can not stay in the hostel again after you check out. That means, you can only come to hostel and pick up your luggage and go out ASAP. You can not enter the hall anymore, you can not rest in the reception for too long, no more than 15 minutes.

Il Castello is a great hostel for visitors staying for a night or two who want a clean, safe, optimally located place. The hostel is very clean and probably a five minute walk from the city center. However, this is not the place for people who are night owls or partiers. There's not a common area or bar and the front desk closes at 7 PM. However, you may come and go as you please at any hour. The walls are very thin so consider bringing earplugs with you. Overall I enjoyed my stay though.

The hostel was fine for a quick stopover tour in Bologna for two days. There is not really a common area, just a kitchen where they serve a meager breakfast. If you are a light sleeper, this place may not be for you as the walls are very thin. The staff were lovely and the hostel is in a great location to the Piazza Maggiore, only about 7 minutes away if that. Would not stay here again, purely because of the walls as I could hear everything even from two rooms over.

I stayed here for one night and had a pleasant stay. It would be nicer if there was access to a kettle, fridge, etc. for guests.
