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.

Very convenient location! My BF and I woke up and walked around the corner to Termini and caught the big red tour bus which took us all over Rome. Right when we got there I was a little irritated we couldn't check in, but they had a cozy area for us to sit, watch movies, use free Wifi and use... More

When my cousin and I arrived in Rome from Florence, we weren't overwhelmed with Mosaic Hostel to say the least. It's in a bit of a dodgy area and - although it's a short walk from Piazza della Repubblica and Via Nazionale - it's still quite a trek to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, etc. It's also a definite...

On arrival the staff member who checked us in gave us heaps of info on the attractions, and where to go. €5 deposit for room key, refundable on check out. Our room was of a very good standard, better than a... More
