When u arrived, u must call the staff and than wait for him coming.


Had a very enjoyable stay at the end of July. Very quiet and barely saw anyone else around. More like flats than a hostel/guesthouse. Room was clean and everything worked including the hot water and fridge. It's located 10 minutes from the main square so a bit of a walk but nothing too strenuous. They also provided a useful map of the city. Bologna is very easy to get around on foot.

Only one fault which is no air con, only a fan. Other than that, we were upgraded for free to an en suite from shared bathroom. The room was large with good fridge, balcony and english MTV channel TV. Really good location, 20 mins tops from station and near center! Bologna is a beautiful, small, local town which we explored in a day (6-8 hours) on hired bikes. (15EUR a day)
