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.

    Great little hostel in a really nice location. Staff were awesome and the whole place was wholesome and good. Not a party place but fits really well with the vibe of the city which is beautiful.

    This hostel was 10/10 The location was perfect, we hired bikes and it took us maybe 5 minutes to ride to the centre of town. Paris, the owner is amazing, he’s funny and quirky and you can see his style throughout the hostel. Breakfast is included and it made for an awesome atmosphere. This place was a dream

    My 18 year old daughter and I stayed in a private en suite room. It was spacious, clean, well air-conditioned (thank goodness - we were there during the heatwave!) and had a very nice, updated bathroom. We were greeted with a nice note, a bottle of wine, 2 wine glasses and 2 bottles of water. We were impressed and touched. Noise level in the hostel is kept reasonable and there's an atmosphere of respect, politeness and calm. The breakfast is excellent and well stocked.

    A beautiful looking hostel, quirky and well decorated. A mixture of chic meets op-shop. The staff were kind and friendly and funny. The free breakfast had a wide selection and tasted great. The bathrooms were big, as well as the showers which also had great pressure. Hand towels in bathrooms provided. WiFi strength and speed were good. Unfortunately my bedroom smelled bad, and the bunks (4 attaches together) moved a lot when ever 1 of the 4 people moved. Otherwise, perfect and recommend!

    Dopa is close to bus station and center as well. Very clean, room and bed was spacious. Kitchen is very nice, they even give you a free bread. The only strange thing comes when you need to store your luggage before or after stay. You leave it in the common room at reception on the ground. Overall we had nice time there.

    Bit far from the station and into the centre but not terrible. Small hostel, limited showers and bathrooms. Breakfast was lovely and sitting at the table in the morning with everyone was a highlight.
