My staying in Il Castelano was perfect! Hostel is really good located, at the beginning hard to find, but in general it's perfect. The worse thing was breakfest: just bread and chesse-too poor in compare to another ones. It's really clean, the staff is helpful and nice!


Was excited to stay at B&B from reviews. But, stay fell short of expectations: 1. Was 35+ celsius. A/C mentioned as feature, but no cold air came from A/C unit. Other people also said they had no cold air. Was sweating in room without even moving. 2. Unhelpful/restrictive staff: - Laundry mentioned as feature, but when I asked, staff said there is laundry, but it's only for staff. - Asked if I could use a simple cup and was told to wait until next day to ask owner. - have more examples

wonderful place, near from station, very quiet,clean place, all new device in hotel, but very small for one single room...the key of the room is cool, very old and classic, but the service is not very well, the waiter let me wait for 15m outside the door....there was no one always being at the Reception......


Could do with having an extra shower. Only one shower for all the rooms doesn't quite seem enough.


Dreadfully noisy revellers in the room next door: loud and drunk at 1.30am. Paper thin walls didn't help.


Other guests 4 females sat in the entrance area loud talking in and out the door but that changes every day

great and nice staff.


Great location in center bologna. Although staff was not available all day they were extremelly helpfull, specially J. Everything was clear and i did not hear any noises at all as read in some reviews here from the kitchen. I stayed in a private room, so meeting people was not easy specially as there are no common areas other than the kitchen.
