We are located in the outskirt of Bologna (in Via Viadagola n�5), at 6 km from the city centre, the bus station and the train station, and about 3 km from the Fair Exhibition Center.

You can catch the bus to get there (we recommend you to buy the bus ticket before boarding. Ticket machines are not on all buses). Get off at the stop called San Sisto, which is a few metres away, right in front of the hostel (it takes about 20 minutes to reach us):
- Bus n�93 (it leaves every half an hour): you take it in Via Irnerio (bus stop 'Sferisterio' close to Piazza VIII Agosto) direction Granarolo, Baricella or Mondonuovo (every day until 20:00. From the station take Via Indipendenza and after 200 m turn left and you are in Piazza VIII Agosto).
- Bus n�21B /(it leaves every hour) direction San Sisto (every day from 20:25 to 00:44). The bus stop is across the street from the railway station under the portico).
- ONLY ON SATURDAY bus n�302 from Piazza dei Martiri (bus stop 'Piazza dei Martiri') at 11:47 p.m. and 1:47 a.m.

From the airport take the shuttle BLQ and get off in Via Indipendenza (bus stop 'Arena del Sole' and go to Via Irnerio to take the bus n�93) before 8 p.m. or at the train station (after 8 p.m. to take the bus n�21/B).

By car, take exit number 9 San Donato of the tangenziale and follow the signs for Ostello San Sisto.
