    A very nice choice for the center of Bologna. Although the (very original) self check in system confused me at first, it was very cool. The bed had everything needed (plugs, a shelf, linens - although I hate making my own bed in hostels) and there's also a huge locker with a key provided from the hostel itself. The common area was cool, the breakfast at least acceptable and the receptionist very friendly and helpful. I'd stay again.

    The upstairs area of the hostel is really nice, the rooms are cosy and the chill out kitchen has everything you need, plus free breakfast until eleven or so. There’s a sofa and a computer and free coffee and a nice general vibe. Downstairs is a bit different - the mixed room is rather ugly, the bunk beds are noisy, there’s only one bathroom and the common area is cold and uninspired. Staff are onl around in the morning, but they are very nice; still, this makes the place feel a bit less safe.

    I only stayed here overnight for about 12 hours, but I found that staff was kind and able to accommodate my early check-out needs. My only complaint was that the showers were very dirty, with clogged water in the drain. I know that this is a low-staff hostel and that's why the prices are so low, but if the hostel guests are not going to clean the showers, it would probably make sense to have someone come to clean them.

    The electric shower should be fixed. I was holding that during I was having shower. The towel is not actually a towel . For the night price could be “ original” one .

    Location is amazing to everything! Rooms didn’t have a lock which was strange. Bathrooms needed cleaning and ran out of Toilet paper in one. I was also overcharged. All in all I wouldn’t stay here again.

    It may have been because it’s out of season but the place felt like it needed a lot of work done and was very basic. There was also no atmosphere but again this might be because it’s November

    Very desorganized place when I arrived there was someone sleeping in my bed. The rooms do not correspond to the pictures I was very desapointed to find that out. Either way they have lovelly staff and I think they are trying to change things around. But I don't think I would stay there again.
