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. If you ask our reception, we'll be a pleasure for us to give you usuful tips, update on events and info about transportation.

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.

    I was here a couple of days ago and it was such a relief to find a cheap accomodation open in this period of lockdown. The place is really central and is really cosy. The staff was really helpful and i saw a lot of efforts done to prevent the risk of Covid-19 inside the hostel. The hostel is really clean and i able was use the common kitchen to cook my food. The beds are built in a way that you feel really safe inside and you are far away to get in contact with other people.

    An absolutely lovely hostel with the friendliest staff and a super well-equipped kitchen with loads of spices. Easy 10-minute walking distance from major sights. Beds were lovely. Lockers were pretty small, only fit necessities but a lot of free space to hang clothes etc. Three bathrooms for the whole hostel - sometimes had to wait a bit. All in all loved my stay at DOPA and will go again :)

    Sarah was such a phenomenal host! She bakes the (free!) breakfast sweet/pastries fresh every day, and is always quick to lend a hand or give advice. While checking in I lamented that I lost my last hair tie and she quickly offered one from her supply. So generous, and a great place to stay in town. Would highly recommend!

    SUCH a nice hostel. The beds are like capsules with curtains, so there is a lot of privacy, and it feels really secure with the lockers and keys to the dorm rooms. It was VERY clean and modern, but also didn't feel 'stale' like other modern hostels--they had a movie night and tried to get people talking, which is great for solo travellers. Also the breakfast was by far the best hostel breakfast I've ever seen.

    It was a good hostel. The rooms and the beds were quite big, but the lockers were too small for us to put our bag in. Breakfast was really good and they allowed us a late night check in. However, we think that the price is a bit too much for what the hostel was worth. There were only 3 toilets in the hostel.

    Gréât location and amazing breakfast, probably the best breakfast in any hostel. I think they were renovating a room because often we rang the bell and got no answer for a bit at reception. Super comfy hostel with great beds and facilities In the room. I know that everyone says this but I will too because it was the only huge con of the hostel, the fact that there are three bathrooms only and the toilet is inside the bathroom. If there was just one separate toilet then I wouldn’t mention it.
