Had a great stay here while in Rome. Conveniently located from the train station, as well as main attractions. I walked pretty much everywhere easily. I felt safe in the hostel staying by myself, make sure to bring a lock for the lockers though. Staff was excellent, helpful in planning and taking care of us at the hostel, really pleasant... More

Mosaic was a nice surprise to find, since I didn't had a booking when I arrived. Very good location, close to Termini station and walkable distances to the main touristic sites. The staff is very helpful and very knowledgeable about the city. Rooms and bathrooms were clean everyday. Free wi-fi and free breakfast is always a plus! Definitely reccomend.

I thought this hostel was a chain and was related to the Prague mosaic house...it's not. Just in case anyone else makes that mistake. When I checked in they I informed me I had to change rooms after one night which was a hassle. The rooms and the bathrooms seem clean enough however I woke up with bed bug bites... More

BED BUGS! After getting bitten the first night, we told the staff. They offered to change the sheets, which does nothing for bed bugs. That night we caught a bunch of live ones to show management, and slept on the couch in the lobby waiting for them to arrive the next morning. The female manager actually argued with us. I... More

We stayed at Mosaic for 2 days and 2 nights. The place is pretty decent for the prices they charge. Rooms are very clean. Ours had 2 bunk beds and cupboards for clothes. Beds are good, clean and soft enough. Your stay includes the breakfast as well which is served near the reception. Breakfast includes milk, coffee, juice, toast, croissant,... More

The hostel is clean and the people at the reception were all helpful. The location is also excellent. The major drawback was the noise during the night. Unless they change their policy, you will NOT be able to get any sleep. We were at the 5th floor and for some reason not all the guests had the key of the... More

Cannot fault the experience, went with my 6th form at the age of 17. A fair breakfast is available every morning. This consists of; bread rolls, cereals, cakes, biscuits, Orange Juice and Tea (you take your pick.) Most of the beds would not be great for a larger individual (look at the pictures.) The Hostel is near a lot of... More

The hostel has everything you need. I lost my diary and Andrea looked for it and sent it all the way to Australia for me! A big thanks for that. :D The only negative was that the wifi was intermittent. Otherwise, clean and close to the centre of town. Walking distance to all the big things.
