It’s the cradle of well eating, full of a wide range of traditional and innovative restaurants. As dynamic as peaceful, Bologna can change its face from the friendly street life of the day to the lively nightlife in its crowded streets, via del Pratello and via Petroni. This balance of souls has allowed Bologna to gain the top of the italian Quality of life index in 2020.
I was born and raised in Bologna, I began Nosadillo Hostel with any former experience in this business in 2011 but with a great desire to do things and none to get bored!Sharing time and stories is one of the best things in my job, every travellers’ stories inspire me to do better day by day. So what better job than this?! Here is an ever work in progress, there’s always a challenge, surprise or ongoing task.If you don’t meet me at the hostel, it is likely I am in a do-it-yourself store.
I can’t bear boredom! Being part of Nosadillo’s humdrum allows me to have fun during work time, just need a quick joke and guests turn into new friends.
This warm hostel is continuingly changing and this is thanks to my creativity too!
I’m always happy to take a tour in Bologna’s downtown, if you are a solo traveller, don’t be shy!
By the way, I almost forgot, I am learning ukulele, I will play something for you one day.
