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).

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.

    I loved this hostel. Comfortable rooms, nice spacious bathrooms (never had a problem waiting for one even though there are only 3). The dinners were so good and for only €5 it was a bargain. Plus, Paris is a really great guy and was working super hard while I was there but still stopped to say hello and goodbye to people as they were coming and going. Thanks for a comfortable stay!

    This was definitely one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in, I really like the design details, the kitchen and the bathrooms. I also like that you have a curtain next to your bed so you can close it if you wanna sleep. The breakfast was really good and there were a lot of things to choose from. The hostel is close to the university district so there are a lot of cool bars and restaurants not far from it.

    Really great hostel! The staff are very friendly and helpful at all times. The dorms were great with having your own PowerPoint, light and curtain. Lockers are a decent size for your belongings but would only fit a day bag. Wifi worked fast and perfect. Breakfast was very nice and a perfect time to get to know other people at the hostel. Common area was comfy and chill, with great music being played. Location was great too, very close to heaps of attractions, restaurants, bars and shops!

    I had a fantastic stay at Dopa. I arrived alone on a Thursday night and they had a local chef in who cooked us a delicious group meal with wine for only 5 euros! This really made my stay and allowed me to meet some lovely people. The interior was trendy, boutique style, the kitchen was extremely well-equipped and the staff were helpful. I could walk everywhere from the hostel. The only criticism I have is that there were only 2 showers for all guests. Overall, I truly recommend!

    Great hostel. This hostel is designed to have a home-like vibe, with the occasional dinner for 5EUR where guests can meet each other, as well as a cosy common area. Only negative comment, as others have also pointed out, is that there are only three bathrooms in total - so occasionally there may be a wait - but this is only a minor issue. Overall, I would highly recommend this hostel.

    One of the BEST hostels I’ve ever stayed at!! So close to everything and the atmosphere is awesome here! Met so many amazing people and the staff were great! And don’t even get me started on the rooms. My gosh, they were awesome! Aircon was so good, curtains on the beds. Yes please. The only downside is you might have to wait for the bathroom. Definitely would recommend staying here if you’re ever in Bologna!
