We speak English, Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch, German, Arabic, Romanian and Greek.
How do you care about an hostel feel?
Dopa Hostel furnishing has been built up 99% handmade inside an old and fascinated building of Bologna downtown, using mainly wood and iron. Almost any piece was designed and carried out with love, using relaxing colours, respectful of Dopa logo and mission. Dopa Hostel wants to be an home more than an accommodation, where guests could feel a warm sensation just from their pass in. Dopa Hostel is an harbour.

Dopa Hostel is the only downtown hostel of Bologna. Located in the worldwide famous Universtiy area of Bologna (the first university of the world), Dopa Hostel is surrounded by historical Bologna's building just 10 minutes walking distance to all its historical point of interest, like Piazza Maggiore (Maggiore Square), Torre degli Asinelli (Asinelli Tower), MamBo (Contemporary Art Museum), Palazzo Fava (Fava Palace), Palazzo Albergati (Albergati Palace). In just 10 minutes walk you can also reach Bologna Stazione Centrale train station (where you can also take a bus to Marconi Airport), and Stazione Autolinee bus station.
Dopa Hostel is located in one of the most vibrant area of Bologna, where nightlife goes on 24/7.
You'll find lots of restaurant, live music club, cocktail bar, pub just in our surrounding streets, and you can spend your time going shopping on famous Via Indipendenza, or getting lost in one of the medieval streets of Bologna city centre. If you ask our reception, we'll be a pleasure for us to give you usuful tips, update on events and info about transportation.

Are privacy and safety important for you? We do.
At Dopa Hostel we really have special big bunk beds, made up with wood and iron, where any guest do not just have a bed, but he get a real private space, thanks to the closable curtain. You can spend less, sleep with other people, but creating your own space! Every guest has his own private cabinet, clothes hanger, locker with electricity socket inside and bed-light. Every rooms have private keys to improve safety. It's also possible to leave a luggage in our luggage storage for free.

    I would give this 11/10 if I could. Truly an incredible hostel - it was even featured in a book of luxury hostels. The reception staff was incredibly helpful -- I even wrote them a thank you note. Can't wait to return!!!

    Loved my stay here! Having the kitchen/dining area located at the centre of the hostel meant it was impossible to not meet people. Really comfortable bunks with curtains for privacy. A lovely atmosphere, places to hang your things and the breakfast spread was simple but very nice to pick and choose !! The hostel staff member who bakes something fresh for each day was truly lovely and I always looked forward to what she made :)) x

    Overall loved this hostel! Very small so cozy, was kinda hard to find but felt very secure once I was there. In a fun student area of town but not a loud hostel. Only complaint is that it’s a little quiet so a little harder to meet people and that the AC was off one of the nights during a heat wave.

    Dopa hostel is a great place to use as a base for exploring Bologna, the hostel is clean and the beds are decent. Some improvements could be made around atmosphere and creating a good vibe as not all staff members were as friendly as others. I would recommend staying here to any travelers :)

    Very expensive for what you get. I understand some cities are more expensive than others but given the state of the facilities and how small all the common areas were I don’t think it’s good value for money. Lockers are tiny and the lock on my locker was broken. Staff were very variable - some were friendly but others clearly didn’t want to be there and left for long periods of time to go for a smoke, leaving the hostel completely unattended during the day when new guests were arriving. Also only 3 bathroom
