Il Nosadillo Reviews

Il Nosadillo has a super cool vibe to it and an amazingly helpful woman who runs it! It's a home away from home!

The Location

Il Nosadillo hostel has a fabulous location! It is a ten-minute walk from the main plaza on the outskirts of the downtown area, so it's nice and quiet but not far from all of the action.

To get here from the main train station, you can walk straight down one street and it will take about twenty-five minutes or you can jump on the twenty-one bus and that will get you there in ten minutes at pretty much a small block from the hostel. Just in case, it is a good idea to let them know when you are arriving, especially if you are arriving late as they might not always be around to let you in.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms here are large and spacious and a bonus is that the beds are single and not bunks, so you have your own area. The lockers are also massive, which means you can put large backpacks and a few other things in them and lock them so your stuff is secure.

There are two bathrooms with shower and toilet in each to use. They are fairly clean and the showers are decent and have hot water.

Common Spaces

The main common area is the combined kitchen and living room area on the first floor. The kitchen is large and well equipped, so you can cook meals if you feel so inclined; however, as this is one of the food capitals of Italy it is recommended to take advantage of this and eat your way around Bologna. The woman who runs the hostel is both incredibly funny and helpful and she will give you a map with all of the best pasta and gelato places and then some.

There is a couch in this area as well as two tables and chairs for socialising. Being as that it is the heart and gateway to rooms in the hostel, people tend to hang out and chat here so it is a great place to meet people.


This hostel is a super cool place to stay -- close to attractions, easy to meet people, and with a friendly owner, you cannot go wrong staying here!
