Hey there! We are a non-profit association that manage a hostel located on the "Via degli Dei", a path between Bologna and Florence. We are located in Monzuno, about 1 hour from Bologna and Florence, in the wonderful setting of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. The hostel offers a low-cost accomodations in shared dormitories and tents for pilgrims and hikers, as well as shared dinner and breakfast.
The hostel's life is based on eco-sustainability, revitalization of the area by cultural and musical events, and simple and cheap accomodation.
