Great location and value”

This is a God budget hostel Ina perfect location...the walls are thin, so it might be noisy for some until quiet hours...but for the price it is a good value just a few steps from the main sights...

Excellent Location, Efficient Staff and Clean rooms”

Centrally located to all the main historical landmarks of Bologna just 3 minutes walk you’ll be in the Piazza Maggiore and the shopping center too. it’s also 2 minutes walk parallel to HM and Zara just look for via Monte Grappa sign and it will lead you to Via Porta Il Castello. The rooms and Toilets are super clean, the Staff are efficient and attentive.

HIDDEN COSTS”

location, modern furniture and design

Although the Agoda link to this B&B did not state in its policies, the hotel told me they would charge 10 Euros extra for checking in after 7 pm. They also had a notice of a 5 Euro charge for leaving luggage until 5 pm. I checked in before 8 pm and, luckily, they did not charge extra perhaps because I had emailed them complaining of the charge.. I was in room 2 which was separated from room 1 by a canvas wall and closet. You could hear EVERYTHING between rooms. It sounded like my neighbor was making phone calls in my room. The location and decor are very good.
