    It's very well located. Smells really bad for some reason, and except for one the receptionist (I think here name was Esme) the rest of the staff isn't very helpful at all. the facilities aren't actually available, you have to ask for them to open de kitchen every single time. Had to use the microwave to make myself a cup of tea.

    It served my purposes as it was cheap, central, and I was only intending to stay one night. Negatives were too much noise from adjoining rooms and taxi pick-up was not possible from the location. It was clean and secure though.

    It's a barebones hostel, no breakfast, no food for purchase, no common area, no kitchen, no extras; my biggest complaint is that the checkin was only offered between 12-7pm - they charged a €10 fee for "late" checkin after 7pm, and no checkin after 9pm. There is no one there to resolve issues after 7pm. Ridiculous. Also, they charge fees for luggage holding. Only two bathrooms for all guests. Wifi sucks. I've stayed at better hostels in Bologna, won't be back. (Il Nosadillo is the best)

    El uso de la cocina no está permitido cuando anuncian que si, no hay ni agua para beber del grifo. Las sábanas no se cambian si las observan limpias. Y hay indulgentes en la estancia del comedor con olores desagradablemente que auyentan a los huéspedes.

    Smelly, dirty. Bathrooms with several issues, showers do not work properly. Extremely hot, it was impossible to reduce the heater. A guy decided to leave the room and try to sleep in the living room, just to give you an idea. No way for an early

    Two words…bed bugs. Can’t tell if I have them or what I got when staying at this hostel but I have bug bites everywhere. Also…the people aren’t friendly and at some point I’m pretty sure there was homeless staying in the rooms with us because all the doors were always open with zero security. It has a decent rating on here don’t be fooled stay as far away from this place as you can 😂 for real
