I can only recommend the Bluehostel! It is clean and has character. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Bluehostel ist Bild 10 minutes from the train Station, 5 Minuten from Metro and 15 Minuten to the Coloseum. If you want to have a pleasant stay choose the Bluehostel! Mile grazie Ercole! We will come back!

Individual room was large, very nice and cozy. About a 10 minute walk to the train station and 1 minute from the closest metro. Greeted with a map of the area and some local tips. Would highly recommend!

I was very lucky when I found this hostel searching websites for a place to stay in Rome. I saw it and I had a feeling it was going to be a special place and I didn’t wrong. When I arrived there I had a very friendly welcome with Riccardo (my Nazaré friend) and his amazing suggestions with the blue... More

The Blue Hostel was a great option while staying in Rome. The staff was very helpful and friendly. (Riccardo was great.) The room was clean with updated, simple, decor. High, rustic wood, ceilings and white washed walls with nice art. Attached bathrooms. It is quiet so no problems sleeping. (Definitely a better option for those not looking to party.) It... More

I had a lovely stay at this property. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The room was a good size, clean and had lots of character. I would definitely stay here again! I wouldn't call this a Hostel, as you get individual rooms with bathrooms, the quality is better than a lot of hotels I've stayed in.

We stayed here in January 2014 for two nights and my only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer! The Blue Hostel is located less than 10 minutes away from Termini and only a 2 minute walk from the nearest Metro station. You really couldn't wish for anything more central. Our room was fantastic - spacious, en-suite, air-conditioned... More

My review is a little late... I loved this place, it is a little old, but has character. It is defiantly not like a hostel, more like a guest house. Location is fantastic, you can walk to central terminal in 10 minutes.... santa maria maggiore is only 2 minutes out the door... lots of cafe's and restaurants need by. I... More

The room was great - spacious with a nice bathroom and serviced every day. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. I was given a custom map, guide books and advice on sights and food/drink spots. There was even a TV, fridge and tea/coffee is the room. There was free wifi but I found it to be unreliable. The...
