We booked a place in 6 bed romm instead they give us 8. the lockers where not clean. "kitchen with no only microwaves"- there is no kettle to make some water, there is some (like 3) plates, glases or knives. fridge is so small, full of anonymous food. They want 3€ for checked out luggage. Staff is really helpfull :)

Very weird staff here. Not necessarily unfriendly, but definitely off-putting. Location wasn't too far from the metro, but you're too far to walk to any of Rome's attractions. Atmosphere varied a lot. There's a common area but it's connected to rooms so volume is an issue. Overall this isn't a bad place, but if you can get a room at one of the more popular hostels there's no reason to stay here.

Utterly abysmal. The second night people were drinking very heavily and getting out of control. We woke up at 4am to a drunk guy pissing on the end of my friend's bed, all over the floor, and all over another guest. The hostel staff lied about there being no other available beds despite proceeding to give us 2 new beds in a different room. We were told we could get a refund at 8am the next day, when the "boss" would arrive with the cash, and waited. At 8, we were told a refund was "impossible".

Not bad, but needs a bit more work to be a great hostel. Could have done with a bit more effort from the reception staff as to what to see and where. Security was OK, but leaving the locker key at reception defeats the point of a locker. Not a great location and quite expensive to say that it's fairly far out from the centre. Still not a bad night's sleep and I met some cool people here, the common room \ kitchen is a good place to drink your own booze and chill.

Pros: Location: 2 mins walk from Bologna metro. There are few pubs and bar around and the ambience is good at night. The local city tax and linen/blanket are included in rent. Staff were good. Cons: There is just one bathroom+toilet for every 6 bed dorm room, but since we were travelling in a group of 6 it was not much of an issue. If you are travelling alone or in groups of 2-3 it could be a problem. Wifi does not work in rooms so you have to be in common area to use it. The kitchen is small.
