Il Castello, Bologna, Italy

5th Jun 2016

It is a bit hard to locate the hostel. You have to remember the number (Number 4) at El Castello as there is no sign on the wall. It offer simple breakfast and the dorms there are big enough It also provides a big locker for each guest. You need to open the main door with a key, then the door on 1st floor with another key and then your room with another key ( often the room is not locked in the day). there is enough security for the hostel but you need to carry a big bunch of keys.

It is right next to the city centre and close to Mongkoj trail station and MTR station (same name as the train). There are many local restaurants where you can relish local dishes at a cheap price. You can deposit lugguage upon arrival if you come early and also do the same after you have checked out. TYhe rooms are small, with ensuite bathrooms.Recommended for budget stay.Room rates go higher at weekends and holidays ( particulary during Chinese New Year, Labor Day and National Day on 1st Octob

It is a little hard tolocate the hostel as it is on the ntop of a small hill. It is on a small street that you can gain access but you have to find the way to go up then. The hostel is close to the city centre and Market Square where you can do some shopping. It is ssquiet as it is not on the main road. The breakfast is minimal and the room rates are very reasonable.

Hola! Thank you for the lovely review. We try and choose such locations for our hostels that are away from the hustle-bustle of the city and yet, are close enough to be within the reach from center. Our staff loved hosting you. Do visit us again soon. :)

the hostel is a bit hard to locate; like most hostels they are found on narrow lanes and the address is derived from the number of the street ( main street) but once in the lane you would be lost and disorriented. The hostel shows hospitality by offering hospitality drink, free breakfast etc.One can get tours and airport transport at reasonable price.

Some cereals could be given on top of bread and jam. If a TV set is put in place in the co mmon room, that would be great. The sign placed on the main street should be made more eye catching as vuests coming at night may miss it in the dark. More details about the location of the hotel is to be supplied.

The hostel is in the old town which offers ancient architecture; beautiful at night with colored illumination. Those like me who do not care much around the sea would like to get through the old town and relive history.The local Chinese museum is small but contains some interesting information about early Chinese settlement and their contibutions.

The hostel is on the whole well run; reception staff are helpful and friendly. Unfortunately some guests did not wash up dishes after use and many left cups and glasses, bottles and leftover food everywhere. T he hostel is close to Kings Cross, an area famed for night life and alcohol. The hostel allows guests to drink on the premises ( Many public places are out of bounds for drinkers). But guests, from Europe particularly, made too much noise in the common room at the basement .

The hostel is in St Kilda area, close to the sea; so a good chance for those who like have a dip in water and sunbathing;; it is close to transport and on a t ram y ou can go to the city centre in half an hour. But the hostel is full of energetic young guys and girls who release their energy by shouting with foul language; young people have the privilege of making mistakes but sometimes they go too far. the kitchen is right next to the reception and common room so the whole place is hot.

It is a good place to watch fireworks ( on 4th of July, for example). It is once a fortests to protect San Francisco. It is close to the public bus stop ( no. 47 and 49) where you canake a bus to the city. The hostel offers complimenry breakfast and you need to produce a coupon to have it. The only thing is tha some people may not have enough to have just 2 pieces of bread or 1 bagle. But to me it is a good idea that people do ot eat too much.

It is a good one wth the least expensive room rates in Manhattan area unless you move to other areas north of 100thStreet in Harlem or Bronx or Broolyn area. The good thing is it is close to Times Square ( 30 minutes walk). You save more as you do not need to a bus or subway ( $2.75 for a ride or $2.50 with Metrocard.$5 for lugguage deposit

The owners Anna and Jose are fiendly and helpful. They are strict about housing keeping and cleanliness. They expect gusts to keep quiet after 11 pm, whch is good and understandablle. Guests are told to put off thier 'smell' shoes outside their rooms, which is good but perhaps the request needs to be toned down a bit. And maybe sme guests ause the use of hostel facilitites after checking out, e.g. using the computer. The management stipulates that guests vacate the hostel after checkout.

But the only drwback is that many rooms do not have windows. They are not good for those who suffer from claustrophobia. WWhen you wake up, you have no ide if it is day time or night time. I nearly overslept and missed my long distance for Kota Kinabalu National Park. If you stay there, it is imperative to set your alarm with your clock or a mobile phone.

The hostel is close to Three Kings Square and museums; it is close to Sompet Market that offers a good chance to go shopping for fruits and local products. It is close to one of my favourite massage centes named Nina Massage that is on Soi 9, No. 61.You get really good services and skills there by Nina and Dao. The owner, Aoi, of the hostel is knowledgeable in many aspects and guests staying there are given a lot of useful tips for travels and transport. The room rates are very inexpensive

The hostel is close to the airport but you need to take a taxi or jeepney to go there; the same for the trip to the airport; public vehicles need to go to the city main gate where they head for the aorport. The hostel is not easy to find and you need to walk for more than ten minutes from the main street to the hostel.It offers complimentary breakfast but if you leave early you could do without it.

It was the second time I stayed here. It still has the friendly atmosphere and now a new cafe is added to the hostel where guests can have their welcome ritual ( Indian pancake, or banana fritte and a drink upon arrival. Now the bathrooms are equiped with hangers so guests can put clothing or towels there as suggested by me last time. It is unfortunate the intrusion by unfriendly personnel had caused a downturn in business for the whole Sabah. But still I could still enjoy seafood at Sim Sim.

The hostel is centrally located in the Old District and close to the shuttle bus offered by Vietnam Airlines ( you do not need to be the passenger of this airline). It offers free shuttle bus service if you come from the train station or bus terminus. It provides airport private car service from the airport at a price ( 32 kilometres for $18, same or less than taxi drivers); one may as well use it as you are very likely to be ripped off, overcharged or robbed ( many lost items put in the trunk)

It is close to Thapaie gate and the three kings square. It is inexpensive but try not to get a dorm space close to the door as there are no curtains or light for the dorm space there. The hostel offers breakfast at a price.

It is not to locate the resort; if you phone the hostel, a van may be out for you at the bus station; it provides shuttle bus service for guests going to the bus station but need to enquire and confirm the request. I chose a single room and its room rate was low but there was only a bed plus a fan and nothing more. There is a window facing the corridor but not the street; so the room may get a bit stuffy. You pay 100 Bahts for a continental breakfast and 150B for an Amerincan one ( pricey0

The hostel is not easy to locate; it is at the far end of a lane; it is close to the Three Kings Monument. There is a big Chinese/Thai restaurant nearby. The owner is very helpful and greets each guest coming in; so the security can be seen as good. The hostl provides breakfast at a price. It is considered a hostel that charges guests fairly.

It is not easy to locate this hostel as it is at the far end of a lane (soi) but it is close to the Three Kings Square and museums. It is close to Tha Pae Gate. The dorm spaces are in a big room partitioned by a large piece of curtain. The owner was very helpful and phoned a tut tut for me for the bus station (Arcade). He was willing deposit my backpack for a couple of days before I came back even there might not be space available when I returned.

The hostel has more than one branch; normally you will be directed to the main branch where you will be re-directed to an.other premises ( on foot, five minutes walk). It is close to Zhong Shan and Taipei train station/ MTR ( underground) Actually you can walk on the underground road all the way from Taipei station to Zhong Shan station. The hostel may be understaffed; often noone is in the hostel; you need to call the manager/owner.One needs to drop keys on the keys unattended.

The hostel is close to a metro station ( Hongjik University) It is a very good location because this station provides the Airport Express so that you do not need to change train. This direct expression goes to the airport ( or from the airport) in half an hour. The owner is very considerate; the map made by him on the net is very clearly made out; once you follow his instructions you have no problem finding the hostel.

The hostel is well run and staffed with well mannered personnel. It provides basic significant facilities. One really gets one's money's worth here. It would look much better if the patched up parts on the wall could be re-painted to give a tidy look to the hostel. If possible, bathrooms/toilets should have some device ( e.g. basket, hanger) provided so that guests having a shower there could deposit clothing ( clean / dirty) there. The hostel provides complimentary breakfast that is good.

It is just average; breakfast is included but staff does not seem to publicize it; breakfast is coffee, bread, butter and jam; sometimes congee/ porridge offered. there is no chair or desk in the room.

We actually don't really provide desk and chairs in the room to avoid the social inside the room since this is exclusive for sleeping. If you need to socialise and read some books we highly recommends that you go tour rooftop or our lobby where there are plenty of magazine and books from different language to choose from. We even have karaoke , cards and chess free to use at no cost.

It is worth staying in this hostel as it is clean and close to transport.There is a good bakery where you have your breakfast and delicious cakes and bread The hostel is at the intersection of two roads. The description is a bit unclear saying the building is pink. Actually it has pink stripes on the wall. I was looking for a building painted completely in pink. You would be mistaken if you do that.
