Property Description

We travelled all over the world visiting lots of Hostel, and we think to know what are necessity of our guests. We work hard to make you feel welcomed, and we want to make you fall in love with Bologna.
We speak English, Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch, German, Arabic, Romanian and Greek.
How do you care about an hostel feel?
Dopa Hostel furnishing has been built up 99% handmade inside an old and fascinated building of Bologna downtown, using mainly wood and iron. Almost any piece was designed and carried out with love, using relaxing colours, respectful of Dopa logo and mission. Dopa Hostel wants to be an home more than an accommodation, where guests could feel a warm sensation just from their pass in. Dopa Hostel is an harbour.

Dopa Hostel is the only downtown hostel of Bologna. Located in the worldwide famous Universtiy area of Bologna (the first university of the world), Dopa Hostel is surrounded by historical Bologna's building just 10 minutes walking distance to all its historical point of interest, like Piazza Maggiore (Maggiore Square), Torre degli Asinelli (Asinelli Tower), MamBo (Contemporary Art Museum), Palazzo Fava (Fava Palace), Palazzo Albergati (Albergati Palace). In just 10 minutes walk you can also reach Bologna Stazione Centrale train station (where you can also take a bus to Marconi Airport), and Stazione Autolinee bus station.
Dopa Hostel is located in one of the most vibrant area of Bologna, where nightlife goes on 24/7.
You'll find lots of restaurant, live music club, cocktail bar, pub just in our surrounding streets, and you can spend your time going shopping on famous Via Indipendenza, or getting lost in one of the medieval streets of Bologna city centre. If you ask our reception, we'll be a pleasure for us to give you usuful tips, update on events and info about transportation.

Are privacy and safety important for you? We do.
At Dopa Hostel we really have special big bunk beds, made up with wood and iron, where any guest do not just have a bed, but he get a real private space, thanks to the closable curtain. You can spend less, sleep with other people, but creating your own space! Every guest has his own private cabinet, clothes hanger, locker with electricity socket inside and bed-light. Every rooms have private keys to improve safety. It's also possible to leave a luggage in our luggage storage for free.

Dopa Hostel has friendly/informative staff, a calm and easy-going environment, security, clean rooms and beds with privacy curtains (although the sides of the beds are not private as curtains only cover the front/ back of the bed), and is walking distance from many key landmarks and restaurants/shops as well as the central station. The rooms also have lockers with keys provided but they are small and will only fit valuables rather than a backpack or small suitcase. Free breakfast was nice also.

Everything about this hostel was perfect! The cleanliness, staff, atmosphere and location. I recommend that you sign up to their evening meal if they are hosting it - it cost a mere seven euros(!) and was a brilliant way to meet people. The beds are also super comfortable. Will definitely stay again if I come back to Bologna.

Very nice and super cozy small hostel. Even though I was here for a short time and to visit friends, I could see how easy it would be to connect with others and meet new people here, as it's so small and you quickly see/meet all the guests. Only downside is that there are 3 bathrooms with shower + toilet in one room, so if during shower rush hour you just need a toilet, you might have to wait a bit.. Also locker in the room didn't lock well, although that was then easily fixed.
