Really great hostel that is a 10 minute walk into the center, and around the corner from the nightlife street. Comfy beds, 2 clean showers and bathrooms with soap. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bread, jam, and pastries were available for breakfast and snacks 24/7. Would definitely stay here again

Wow! This place was nothing short of a home away from home. It was so cosy and felt like sharing a house with flatmates. Attracted a wonderful bunch of travellers and the women working here were so helpful and accommodating. I wish I could have stayed for longer and definitely hope to visit again one day.

Basic rooms, use of kitchen included. You can use fridge to store items. Breakfast is included, but is toast and jam, cereal, etc. Sleep was okay, rooms were mixed dorms - our room has 4 people. Heat was not on, so it got a little cold. Good wifi.

The great place ever! It was my home for 13 days so, it is really a special place to me. Everyone is so kind, available to help you with anything and to talk to you about everything! They also give excelent advices to tourists, and they build a really good and healthy familiar environment. It has a very good location,...

Il Nosadillo was ideally situated in a quiet location in the old part of Bologna, approx 10/15minutes walk away from the centre. It had a small homely feel about it and was great value for money. The bedrooms and kitchen/common room areas were well equiped and clean. There was an unexpected bonus of having the inclusive breakfast available all day....

I loved Il Nosadillo. The location is pretty good (hard to be far from anything in Bologna when the city is so easily walkable), and Marianella had wonderful recommendations for food and activites. I spend the weekend exploring Bologna with some students here for the weekend during their studies in Venice and we had a wonderful time! Great to have...

I needed a place to stay in Bologna for the weekend that was affordable and a good way to meet other people. I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had at this hostel! Plenty of other like-minded travels, many of who were also travelling independently. The bed were comfortable and the hostel was very clean. Exceptional customer service....

Awesome hostel with 24*7 free food and a self help kitchen. Bologna is filled with students. Had a great time going around the city with university students staying in Nosadillo. Both the hostel and the city have an awesome vibe. You should definitely go to Piazza Maggiore, Due Torri and explore the party spots in the university street (Via Verdi/Zamboni...

If you're staying in Bologna, look no further! Il Nosadillo is a great B&B. Marinella in particular was instrumental in helping me chose the very best food locations in a city that prides itself for the food. And trust me, this is foodie central. The beds are comfortable, the space is clean, location is safe and close to the city...

Stayed for three nights here, but most of the other guests were students trying to find somewhere to live. We were in the downstairs room, that seemed quite open, the kitchen was like part of the room and a shower and bathroom off that. But it was handy having a kitchen (there was also one upstairs that had more things...
