A great, small and friendly hostel - staff were lovely, facilities are perfect and the location is almost unbeatable. Beds were very comfortable...Would seriously recommend for anyone starting the Via Degli Dei in Bologna.

I'm glad I only stayed two nights. I wouldn't recommend this place except in a crunch. The staff was ok, sort of cranky and the whole experience was vaguely awkward. Breakfast was endurable, the coffee was fine. The is a serious lack of showed, the air con was temperamental. BUT it is a great location and clean.

Il Castello and Bologna have become very dear to my heart! Pros: - It's small, so you're bound to meet people there. I did and I had the most amazing time ever. We were a big group of people who went out together. - It's clean. - It's safe - they even give you a locker and a key for... More

There's nothing specifically wrong with this hostel, I just didn't feel it was very friendly. If you check in after 19:00 you get charged an extra 10 euros, which for me meant that the price of my stay went up by 50%. When I emailed the management to enquire about this charge, I received a rude response. The staff at... More

It says B&B but is a hostel. While the entrance was a bit difficult to find the first time, the location can't be beat and the hostel is great. Clean, modern, and quiet with a friendly staff- and I mean really friendly. I ran into a couple of them on the street and they stopped to say hey. Great value!... More

All the rooms and bathrooms where very clean and had good facilities - in a few bathrooms there were showers that squirted you from the side! (Really fancy). Breakfast is included in the price but is a very standard meal. With only toast or croissant to choose from with jam or Nutella and a single piece of fruit so make... More

Il Castello is a B&B (but really, for me it looked just like a hostel!) situated right in the centre of Bologna. It's in a quiet little alley 2 minutes away from piazza maggiore! The building is very pretty with a marble entrance hall and a lift that takes you to the rooms. I stayed in an mixed 8 bed... More

Me and a friend stayed two nights during our time travelling italy and this was a favourite of ours. We stayed in a mixed dorm of 4 people and the place was immaculate. Jacuzzi showers in this place are awesome. Best part really was the people, as far as i understand theirs a lot of students in bologna so we... More

I was put into a bedroom with 8 beds, and the place is immaculate. The common room is incredibly modern and clean. The showers have jets in the wall like a jacuzzi. And it's cheap. I only paid around €40 for two night. I don't know when these other reviews were taken, but this place is amazing. Maybe they remodelled... More
