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.

    Just the right social atmosphere—not too crazy, just cozy enough to encourage striking up a conversation with a fellow traveler. Lovely staff and exceptionally clean. Bonus points for the game nights and hostel dinners!

    For solo travelers, the atmosphere is great! You will be near the university so you will have a young vibe right at the hostel's front door. The dorms are good and comfy.

    I enjoyed my time at the hostel - the staff were lovely, the included breakfast was nice, the location was great and it was very social. I was aware of the limited number of bathrooms however I made the effort to get up slightly earlier than usual and had no issues with access. Would recommend!

    First arriving at the hostel was interesting, it is a bit different to other hostels. It feels like a bit apartment but after settling in, it was lovely. The host was sooo sweet and worked three days straight! The kitchen, free tea and coffee, lounge area and bathrooms were great. The beds are funky and hipster but wobble... overall it was a comfortable stay and I’d recommend.
