    I loved the cozy, spacious room, the site was very secure with 3 keys to access the building, hostel, and room. The bathrooms range from small to large but there are plenty. It is located maybe 4 minutes from the piazza maggiore, the major square in the city. And it’s in some Allie’s just off the Main Street where you can find vibrant restaurants at night. If you’re social and want to go and meet locals and be engulfed in the culture, it’s perfect. Also next to a major shopping Street and park.

    It was good to me. Simple, but it provided what I needed. However, the place has everything to be way better with small adjustments and I think they should think about reopen the kitchen

    Very Good

    Great location. Great staff. Rooms are fine but the lockers are really unequal sizes so you’re a bit unlucky if you get the small ones. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. No kitchen or common room, so not very social. Good for a night or two, not longer.

    Very Good

    It's well located in central Bologna with the best price for a hostel that I could find. Staff were good. However, the dorms are hot & sticky with very weak air con. No power outlets next to the bunks, fairly basic accommodation. Not the hostel's fault but there was also a monster of a snorer in the room so I barely slept. A few ever-so-slightly dodgy characters around too.

    The place is extremely well-located (pretty close to the Central station and also to the Center) and the staff Rouminia I think was her name was very helpful and nice. That being said, the place is around 30 euros and it's not super hygienic. There are holes in the sheets and i heard there were bed bugs... I would only stay here if you absolutely need a place because it was the cheapest one available when i booked.

    The location of the hostel is perfect. Right in the center and near the bus/train station. But it was pretty dirty. The showers and bathrooms were pretty gross and rusty. I was only there for a night but wouldn’t recommend any longer. There’s also no outlet or light near your bed which is annoying if you need to charge your phone. Lockers are small and I couldn’t even lock mine. Not a social vibe either.

    Very bad value for money. There is no vibe at the hostel, we can not make any noise and the staff is super boring. I think most pf the people just choose this hostel because is the cheapest one and to stay 1 or 2 nights. If you wanna have an hostel experience, don’t choose this one

    Each bathroom had something that did not function. One without hot water, one without a holder for the shower head and another that said you could not flush the toilet. The atmosphere was a bit off. There were signs describing the rules of the hostel in a very threatening manner, including a threat to turn you into the authorities if you bring a guest home. I also never felt welcomed by the staff. The blinds to the shared bedroom did not work and the bright streetlight shined onto my bed. Don’t.

    Awful stay - hostile environment. Did not feel secure in the room due to lack of security. Massively overpriced - I wouldn’t even want my dog staying here. Filthy rooms which were riddled with bed bugs - the linen had holes in it and was not fresh. Friend woke up with bites all over her. Showers didn’t work properly and we’re not clean. DO NOT STAY HERE! Thankfully we were only staying here one night. If We could have gotten alternative accommodation we would have.
