    I loved how it was a self checking process.

    Lovely hostel. I only stayed one night but enjoyed it. Check in was easy despite no staff. There was a map and other info out on my bed upon my arrival. The breakfast provided in the morning was simple but good. I appreciate the coffee and tea provided as well as the fresh fruit. My only complaint is that I was dying of heat all night. Couldn’t figure out how to work the thermostat and I was sweating all night and could not sleep as a result of no air conditioning.

    The hostel was great. I am a VIPKID teacher and saw the router in the kitchen. They allowed me to teach a couple of classes and they went great. When I asked if teaching was possible the host said "Use the hostel as you're home." Also heads up - I was in the female dorm but when I was there the male only dorm had no air conditioning. It would have been miserable for me. They were fixing it when I left.

    It was one of the best Hostel experiences I have ever had. Especially recommend it to solo travellers as you will end up making new friends along the way.

    Enjoyed the self checking in process. After traveling a lot sometimes it’s nice to not have to interact with anyone. Super helpful staff, great location, and good crowd staying there.

    Had an amazing experience at this hostel, and the idea of the staff not to be around all the time is in my opinion really good. It creates a closer bond between guests! (as well as keeps costs down, which is always a nice thing) Some tips for Il Nosadillo: Some kitchen paper or a daily changed kitchen towel would be very nice, and if possible maybe offer 1-3 bikes for guests to loan during their stay? :-) Thank you for hosting me!

    If you’re in Bologna, stay here! Best hostel atmosphere ever! I made more new friends at this hostel in 2 days than at all the other 6 I have stayed at on my trip. Included breakfast is fine, and the sleeping situation is fine, but the common room makes for the best of times! Highly recommend you stay here

    Although everything about the hostel was good, the air conditioner was still broken after 2 weeks! No fans either to help with the heat. During hot summer nights it makes for terrible sleeping.

    Very Good

    The room has aircon which is the nicest especially during the summer. The location is quite far (20-25mins) from the stazione so needs to manage your time if you want to go to the airport or train station. Nevertheless, i enjoyed my stay.

    The hostel itself is OK. But it's weird that there are no staff to receive you if you arrive at night or in the afternoon. They have air conditioning, which is great for summer. Also, they provide absolutely ZERO activities, no pub crawls, no city tours. If you want to meet the people on the hostel you gotta do it yourself.
