Common area was nice. Staff was helpful enough. Breakfast was nothing special. Our room was good for the price. Nice location near Termini (9min) and another metro (6min). Good food and wine in walking distance. This is a review of budget double room #1. Room and bed were small but decent. Plenty of outlets, a TV, and a safe. Bathroom... More

I spent 7 nights in Rome in this hostel and I couldn't really have asked for anything better. It's within walking distance of Termini, the main station, and is surrounded by lots of little shops that sell everything from alcohol to shampoo. Will definitely stay again.

I have stayed in many hostels and this one was by far the worst. There was four of us and they gave us a room and the beds weren't made, and so it turns out that someone was staying there. They told us they wouldn't charge us for this night, but then they did. The staff were very argumentative and... More

I've stayed in a lot of hostels and this was one of the best. I arrived and hadn't really planned what I would do and the receptionist helped me to plan my day out in Rome. The room was really clean and only a 4 person dorm with en-suite so it was quieter than most hostels I've used and very... More

The hostel is located 5 minutes away (walking distance ) from termini station so you can easily catch the metro around. In addition there was some gluttony breakfast and the rooms were spacious and clean with a warm backpacker feel to the place. I would stay here again.

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
