    Great staff. Arrived earlier than check-in time, but allowed me to check-in. Very clean and spacious room! Biggest shared hostel room I've been. Toilets are amazing. Location is near the center. It's a 12 min walk from the train station. Lovely atmosphere and facilities. They've got a foosball and couches for recreation. Lovely design for the pantry.

    Had exactly what I needed. The staff were particularly helpful and in general I found it a lot more friendly than other places that may seem, on the face of it, more welcoming but in fact are just doing their job. Thanks!

    Very good location, close to the bus station and around 10 minutes away (on foot) from the main square of Bologna. The included breakfast was a great deal as they had pastries, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, ham, cheese and more. The hotel is on the whole clean.

    Only stayed one night but was a good stay. Room clean and comfy, enough space for 4 people. Lots of good bathrooms all with showers so could clean privately! Staff really helpful with the questions I had- made it to the football on time thanks to there help! Only issue I had was finding the place, slightly hidden. Would definitely stay again when I return to Bologna :)

    The breakfast was amazing: fruit, yogurt, bread, cheese, meats, crackers,etc. The room for 4 was spacious and so was the locker. I didn't like how the door to the room didn't lock automatically because roomies would leave and not lock it so anyone could walk in.

    Pretty cool hostel, the rooms we're pretty hot since air cons weren't working. But nothing open windows and a wet towel couldn't fix. Plus they placed 3 portable fans in the room they helped. Breakfast was great, lots of bathrooms too. Only stayed a night but didn't feel much of a social vibe, it is however in a perfect location. :)

    The night staff was not helpful, I asked him more than 3 times in different hours if he could help me with some issues of the hostal and he didn't care. Excellent location, breakfast really good, wifi never worked, hostel was good.

    The environment was nice and quiet. The staffs were so nice and since I have to leave early the day after, they even packed me my breakfast. Check in process was fast and efficient and so as the toilet was cleaned and maintained. However, Wifi connection did not work completely and that some people actually experienced the same thing. I hope they would fix this issue soon because It is really important. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay.

    Great location, good breakfast, helpful staff, but somehow the place reminds one of a prison. Something about the size of the place, the pale neon lights and the drab architecture.

    It’s one of the cheapest options in the city, I’d still recommend others to stay here for the location, safety, and price! It is a fairly large hostel and not well cleaned. The breakfast is great but ends early and you don’t get access to the kitchen. But you’ll have a good time!
