Very good and clean Hostel, the only bad is far from the center of Parma. The people there they are very friendly and they help with a lot of information for the city. The best option if you want to stay for some days..

I was here back in 2009 so I knew what, where and more about the hostel. However it is super clean, spacious, excellent staff who are willing to help whenever you need it. It's not very social as other travellers keep to themselves but I wasn't fussed about that as I had plans seeing a friend. It's a little far...

Compared to other hostels this one is pretty average. The rooms are spacious and clean, but very simple. They charge you extra for breakfast and towels. The wifi didn't work with me, and they claimed and it was a Safari problem. They let me use they computer for some emails but I didn't get a connection in the room. There...

This hostel gives you exactly what you pay for: a clean and tidy room, with an acceptable bed and a shower. Just 4 white walls, no decoration, no colour... it reminds me of some kind of boarding school, and I'm not surprised if this was its former use. I usually book hostels because of the cool vibe and relaxed surroundings...

The hostel is clean, secure, and the staff is kind. However, it is quite far from the city center (20 min walk), and there is no kitchen, fridge, or dishes which means that you simply cannot eat there unless you pay for their breakfast. The internet worked perfectly. I would recommend it only for short stays, especially if you only...

Located a good half-hour walk from the centre of Parma this hostel was certainly clean and spacious. I was able to get a good night's sleep but the entire place seemed dead: very few people around and very little to do in the immediate area. I found the place pleasant enough for a single day in Parma but anything more...

I stayed here one night which was enough for me. The staff were very helpful and it was clean but the atmosphere was lacking energy and the communal rooms large and sterile! Location wise, once found it was good- outside the centre but close enough to walk or cycle although they had no bikes as stated in the Lonely Planet...

If you expect an HI hostel having good internet, forget it. This hostel just used the city free internet, instead of having their own. The computer is slow. The room is only so so, charging expensively, even without breakfast. There is also no kitchen. Only one good thing, the staff is English speaking and attentive, although not much helpful. It...
