Budget travelers and backpackers should consider hostels. There are two of these affordable options located within a 15-minute bus ride of the Bologna city center.  Hostel San Sisto-Due Torri is open seven days a week, offering 105 beds and a shared bathroom. Guests of the hostel can take advantage of free wireless Internet access, laundry facilities, free delivery service from a nearby pizzeria, postal services, a basketball court, a library, and games such as chess.

Centro Europa Uno, located in San Lazzaro di Savena, is set up differently. Instead of the traditional hostel arrangement of multiple beds in a large room, this hostel is made up of eight bungalows, each comprised of one or two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a lounge area. There is also an area reserved for camping and barbeques.
