    Really enjoyed staying at this hostel for a night. Loved all the shelves next to my bed and the small, secure closet. Loved the breakfast in the morning that even included a drink from the bar so I got a cappuccino. Would definitely stay here again if I'm in the Bologna area! Also just a 15 min walk to the train station and not far from the center, it was perfect.

    I was quite happy to stay there. It’s great that they have a courtyard and desk space inside with plugs to work. The location was great. There were no kitchen facilities, but they did serve breakfast.

    A little bit too expensive but you get a nice free breakfast. Otherwise it's a nice hostel in a nice city 😊

    Very Good

    Nice big rooms w a good amount of storage space. Great to have breakfast included! The staff are really friendly & the bathrooms are good & big. Nice location for exploring Ferrara (so close to Diamente Palace & Este Castle). Really liked the experience overall. CONS: no kitchen to cook in (only a microwave & toaster), but I was allowed to keep food in the reception fridge which was helpful. Quite dirty under / behind the needs but otherwise pretty clean. Also, really not much of an atmosphere in the hostel (generally seemed like an older crowd, & there’s no bar / social area as such. Might be a pandemic thing!)

    This is not a nice hostel and should not have such a high rating. The building itself is old and uncomfortable. The location isn’t ideal, unless you are a student. The security isn’t great. There is no atmosphere whatsoever. It is handy having the breakfast in the morning, albeit it was nothing special I am afraid. The beds are comfortable to be fair.
