Liked: The staff were very accommodating and on hand 24-7. Also a helpful free shuttle to the fair every day and good links to centre of town.

Disliked: The cabins where quite cold so we had to use the heating a lot and the bar/cafe wasn't open much. There should be a shop or somewhere where you can get hot water . . . us British like our tea!!

Liked: The rooms were pretty spacious, had your own private bathroom aswell. Wardrobes that you could lock, so you could keep all your crap there safely. Also had a pool and gym on offer. The guy at reception was really friendly and more than willing to lend a hand

Disliked: It's a little bit out in woop woop (no where). There is a bus that goes between the center of town and the front door of reception but its only every 2hours, othere wise you can walk 10 15mins to the main road and get a bus, which wasn't too bad but i only did it once, would suck if you were pissed because there's no kebab joints along the road.

Liked: It had free parking, it was spotless, it had air con. The bus stopped right outside the reception (up to a certain time) The pool was lovely.

Disliked: The last bus back from the city center to the reception was at 8.40. There was another bus running til after midnight but the stop was about 900 mtrs away. We got a taxi back and it cost 12 euro. €2 for 1 hours internet was a bit expensive .

Liked: The bungalows were very clean and spacious. There was a decent restaurant on the site.

Disliked: This really isn't a hostel, and the property should not market itself as such. It's not really a place for backpackers. Buses run infrequently to and from the campground (every 2 hours) and if you take the more frequent one, it's quite a walk down a secluded and dark road. Wifi was only free for 15 minutes too.

Liked: Very clean, very comfortable, spacious lockers, responsive staff. I think that there were 5 beds, but I had the whole place to myself. The bathroom was well-equipped. I didn't realize that it was a campground and sports area before I went there. So I was a bit surprised to be walking past farm fields, a paintballing park, and a large amusement park. The amusement park generated a bit of noise, but it didn't bother me.

Disliked: I had a hard time finding it. First, I missed the "Dozza" bus stop, because it is not marked. Then, I had trouble following "via Romita", because the intersection with the main road is not marked in a way that shows that the little road is via Romita. The information that I got was: Bus N.25 bus-stop name DOZZA 950 mt from Centro Turistico in via Ferrarese/Stalingrado Arrival Bus stop railway station - Via Rizzoli (center) and return from h6 to h19 every about1 0/15 minutes from h9 to h21 every about 20 minutes from h21 to h00,30 (last bus from the center) every about 30 minutes. Clearer English would be: Bus N.25 goes between Via Rizzoli (central railway station) and the bus stop named DOZZA (950 meters from Centro Turistico in via Ferrarese/Stalingrado) from h6 to h9 about every 10/15 minutes, from h9 to h21 about every 20 minutes, and from h21 to h00,30 (last bus from the center) about every 30 minutes. It would have helped if the information had said something like: "DOZZA is the first stop after the round-about. When you get off the bus at DOZZA, walk back about 50 meters and take the first left onto a narrow paved road. Follow the signs to "Centro Turistico Citta di Bologna" (about 900 meters).

Liked: Really nice rural location but within very easy access to Bologna, as it's just on the outskirts. The food in the restaurant was very tasty, slightly expensive, but worth it as it was good quality. The staff were also very helpful and I enjoyed my two days there.

Disliked: It's a pity that there weren't more activities on offer, like a common games area. The internet reception was very poor in my cabin too and I didn't like the fact that you have to pay for an hour's service everytime you want to use it.

Liked: The set of the bungalows were great and they have lots of music channels on TV.

Disliked: Despite the fact that it was 34 degrees while I was there, the pool was closed. The very unhelpful, grumpy staff member then tried to tell me there was no water in it. Which was a lie - I could view the pool and looked ready to be swam in. Bathroom constantly smelt like urine, lots of dust and rubbish swept under the bed. No use of cooking equipment unless you stay 15 days or more. No atmosphere at bar but loud disco music from neighbouring club can be heard into the early hours of the morning on most nights. Last bus back to camp is at 8.40 (which seldom comes) walk from main road and other bus services is only 15 minutes but felt very unsafe walking alone, in the dark.
