Clean rooms. Friendly knowledgeable people behind the counter. Stayed for one night and couldn't really fault anything. This was my first stay at a hostel due to some last minute changes and I must say it exceeded all of my expectations.

The hostel isn't in the centre of town, but it doesn't take that long to walk to the main station, termini. The service was friendly and there was breakfast every day. The rooms were adequate and clean. Excellent value for money. Would recommend.

The City Hostel is really an apartment in a regular building that's been converted into a hostel. It's located in the University area - which means there are a lot of dining options (Pizza Cinque has all-you-can-eat pizza for 5 euros), convenient transport facilities (bus stop and metro station close by) and it's not too expensive. The bed was quite... More

i stayed there 5 nights in Nov. it's a small hostel not in the city centre but it's also very easy to get to by metro (only 15mins or so). by the meaning of it, it's located in a non-touristic area and it's perfect for those who wanna escape from the tourists and the crowd and "tourist's price". it's a...

Rome City Hostel is just a short metro ride away from all the big famous attractions and located within walking distance to both major train stations. Located in the university district, you feel like you're actually living in Rome rather than just visiting. The staff are fantastic and super helpful and the rooms are large and clean. The wifi signal... More

The hostel is located around 20 minutes from Termini station. Nearest bus stop is right by the entrance to the hostel, and it takes around 7-10 minutes to get to Termini. If you prefer subway, it takes up to 10 minutes to walk to Policlinico or Bologna metro stations. The rooms are quite simple, bathrooms could be cleaner, but in... More

We stayed here for two nights in October. While it is a bit far out of the centre of Rome it is within 10 minutes walk to two metro stations and also has a bus stop handy. We were of the impression that we had booked a women's only room but when we arrived we were in a mixed dorm.... More

Though a bit far from Roma Termini station, but the bus 310 stop 'Ippocrito' is just in front of it and nearest metro station 'Bologna' is just 7-10 minutes away. The hotel stuff (specifically the man who is in charge in the morning) advised and even made a plan of visiting important locations. They provide milk, fruit juice, coffee, tea,... More

It is easy to get anywhere from this location via bus or metro. The staff was helpful in recommending places to eat and provided a city map and assistance. Rooms were clean and showers adequate.
