A Simple But Friendly Hostel
A friendly hostel that was perfect for my quick overnight in Bologna. The front desk was very friendly and accommodated my late arrival and very early departure perfectly (Even making me a little "to go" breakfast the night before). They have separate, mixed, and male/female rooms. I was in a male room with a few friendly guys sharing a hall bathroom. If you are looking for an inexpensive and extroverted stay in Bologna, they are located close to the central train station and check all the boxes!

I stayed for one night with my two year old daughter since we wanted to catch a plane in the morning. The staff was very friendly and sweet. I have been to a lot of hostels in my life and thus is one of the best. For me it counts that they employ people from vulnerable groups.

A Couple of Swells
It is similar to other youth hostel type accomodation we have stayed at in Munich and Barcelona. The check in is quick and easy, the staff friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable and the wifi signal excellent. The buffet style breakfast cafeteria was well run. We had the choice of three shared bathrooms. Sadly not all patrons were as hygenic in their toilet habits as ourselves.
