Lobby Collective is a place for debuting poets, unknown artists and digital nomads. A place where travelers and locals meet to cook, drink, work, sleep and play. With Agorà (living, food & drinks), Volcano (study and coworking space), Caviar (experimental cuisine), Academy (training and courses), and different types of private and shared rooms, this former Bertolli factory building is very more than just a hostel where tourists can sleep.
Reasonable prices and a relaxed atmosphere make Lobby Collective a hostel for everyone: couples, single mums, backpackers and young families.
