As noted by others, you are staying in a former monastery with huge ceilings, an open courtyard and wide halls. Everything is spotless. They have a small fridge, microwave, but no utensils nor open kitchen. The machine makes all different varieties of coffee, but no hot chocolate. There is a supermarket on the next block. Wifi was spotty when I was there.

The open courtyard is lovely, but you do hear the music played in your room. It was very quiet with no street noise. Only noise other than the music was the church bell wake up call at I believe 7?

I did splurge on the dinner provided. 18E for two primi, one secondo, aqua, service. Who knew I would enjoy such a lovely meal. I told the staff it would cost anywhere from $40 to $50 US depending on how fancy the restaurant for that quality of food. Dinner service was attentive and good just like you find at most restaurants.

The bus to/from the train station is right on the next block which came in handy taking my early morning train.

I stayed for quite a long period in the old hostel in Reggio Emilia years ago, and this new hostel is run by the same, very friendly people. Nice to see continuity. The hostel is located in an old religious building, the rooms looking onto the inner courtyard. The courtyard is used as an al fresco dining area and concert area in the summer, so be ready to hear music until midnight or later. Very simple breakfast included. Clean showers, clean rooms. Overall, to be recommended.

Hostel is situated in an old monostery. The rooms are clean and tidy, bathrooms are big enough and quite private. Place was very quiet, so we had a good night sleep. The place is magnificent, drinkig morning coffee in the garden is divine. The staff was very helpfull. Breakefeast is simple, they offer coffee and some cereals, honey and jem, but enought for a hungry traveller. There is a free parking option just around the corner.

Staying here was truly a unique experience. We didn't know what to expect and were quite positively surprised when we walked into the courtyard of this monastery now hostel. Everything was very clean and the staff was kind and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were simple yet clean and the high vaulted ceilings, wide corridors and the internal courtyard were enough to make this place special. There is laundry on site and the hostel is located in the center of town close to shops and restaurants.

I stayed in this hostel for 2 weeks while I was in Reggio Emilia and had a wonderful stay!! The location is great and you can get to everything in the city easily. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms. There are huge lockers in every room that you can lock with your room key. All the doors lock automatically upon closure. Since the staff is there 24 hours in the reception, it creates a secure atmosphere. If you are looking for a budget friendly place to stay in Reggio Emilia, I would absolutely recommend this hostel!

Room tip: The hall bathrooms have many stalls, so you do not have to have an ensuite room.
