    Prettiest hostel I have ever been to - looks more like a boutique hostel if you ask me. Extremely clean, light, all rooms have air conditioning and big lockers with keys. Beds are super comfy, and the toilets / showers are spacious. Check-in was easy - using a link to register and a personal code to get through all doors. 10-minute walk from the train station, perfectly located in the city center.

    the Host was a great find in parma! i was in town for a conference and i found the Host and booked with them because they were close walking distance to my meeting point with my colleagues. The room was cute, clean and had towels and spacious lockers. The community areas were decorated cute and comfy. The bathroom is community and not in the room. The only "negative" is the chapel bells ring in the morning. location is perfect, highly recommend. the communication and check in were very easy.

    Very nice hostel, with beds made daily. Very clean and modern showers & facilities. Not at all cramped, beds nicely spaced. Very central location. The hostel is not staffed, so you need to check-in remotely which is a bit of a hassle (photographs of ID cards and such). The staff were helpful over WhatsApp. No kitchen.

    The Host is sooo charming! We loved it! Everything was clean and cozy. The coffee up front was sooo tasty! It'd be wonderful to have alternative milk (oat or almond) and hooks and mirrors in the rooms would be amazing!

    Super nice hostel in the centre of Parma. Facilities were great, just a shame there’s not much of a social/common area to meet other people. No staff actually at the premises but hosts were really easy to contact and very helpful.

    Loved the Host. Just stayed a night at the hostel and there is noting to complain about. The place was spotless and really modern. Even though it doesnt provide a conventional hostel space to meet people, it is absolutely worth it for the money. It is right at the center of the city; A few minutes walks from all major attractions and there are a lot of places to eat and drink close by. would recommend it people who is looking to spend a peaceful night in Parma

    Very nice and clean hostel. I spent 2 good nights. The only things I didn't like were the lights coming from the common room illuminating the room because of its glass door and the online chek-in.
