Complete, clean, stylish and cozy room; perfect location to explore town, since it is next to Termini Station; staff (Ercole) is very kind, helpful, attentive and designed his own city-map, with specific tips on bars, restaurants, cafes, gelatto shops etc; no common areas.

If you are looking for stylishly furnished rooms and friendly staff you are absolutely right at the blue hostel. Though there is no 24hour reception the service is really great and always there for you. They gave us realy good personal recommendations for restaurants, cafés, bars and sights. The hotel is in the very near surrounding of the mainstation Termini... More

BEST HOSTEL I'VE EVER STAYED AT. The owner was in communication with me to help me find the place, he carried our bags for us, he made an incredible map of the city with all of his recommendations. Nicest man I've ever met. His hostel feels more like a hotel. I felt spoiled while staying there. Location is amazing, right... More

As their site says if you can deal with no reception, no restaurant and walking 3.5 flights of stairs, then this is the place! The rooms are spacious, traditional and tasteful at 50-60% less than what hotels charge. But what I really liked was the exposure to the Monti neighborhood. It's right in the city but away from all the... More

Great place in a nice neighbourhood. And not that many tourist in the area. Which was very nice. The staff was great and recommended some really nice Italian restaurants. I'll most definitely stay in Blue Hostel next time, when I'm in Rom. The only minus; the Internet was very slow during the day, which was a bit of a pain.

I spent 4 nights here finishing off my two week trip in Italy. Staff met me at the hostel in the am so I could leave my bag. When I returned later, my bag had been placed in my room and Ercole met with me. He took the time to review the area map, sites to see, and general safety... More

We had a nice stay, the room was clean and the bed was good. The staff was very nice and answered all of our questions. There was two small downsides to this place. The room was 3 or 4 flights of stairs! Cannot remember but after a long day walking it was a pain. The other thing was the bath... More
