Pros: Affordable and right next to the Vatican. The owner lives in the location with his mother and they were both very nice. Close to several bus lines so you're 30 min from heart of Rome. Cons: Very loud, you feel like the cars are driving by your bed. No AC and only a ceiling fan so in the summer... More

It was very good for the price. Vincenzo was helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. It was super noisey at night and breakfast was mediocre, but good location next to the Vatican. Great value if you're a deep sleeper like me and rather spend you budget on good restaurants and fun.

Visited Rome in June and stayed here in the en suite room for a week. Really lovely experience, friendly staff, our room was quiet and clean. Very close to the Vatican with a few lovely, albeit touristy restaurants in the area. I would definitely stay here again. Whilst slightly out of the centre of Rome, there is a regular bus... More

My college roommate and I stayed here for one night during our travels through western Europe. The room was clean and big enough for two people. There was one shared bathroom, but there were only three or four rooms so that was not a problem. There were some communication issues due to the language barrier. Thus, we were not comfortable...

Excellent location for Vatican, a bit of walk to bus or Metro station. Few eateries in the vicinity. But while the staff was welcoming and helpful, the location is right along a busy street where the sirens of emergency vehicles often blare.

Booked for a two night stay to visit Rome and this hotel served it's purpose. It's inexpensive, barebones hotel that was exactly what I was looking for. It's definitely no frills, but the location is literally 7 minute walk to Vatican City and easy to have the hotel manager get you a taxi to get into the center of Rome.... More

Stayed at quadruple room late May/early June, with a queen size bed and a bunk bed. I will start with the good: - Location: within 5 min walk to Vatican. Accessible to Room city center by bus. - Value: Typical hotel rooms in Europe accommodate two people. An add-on bed will cost extra. Our family of four would have to... More

The room was comfortable, though it was little hot in late June, but it was a great place to be based for touring the vatican and heading back to at the end of the day. It was a bit of a trek getting to the further reaches of Rome, so suitbale for those who don't mind walking or if you... More

We spent four night in Al Ponte del Papa at the end of an extended European trip. Despite arriving during Rome's first significant snowfall in over 20 years, we found the location easily and were warmly welcomed. The location is not only convenient to Vatican City and bus lines (or even walking, as we did) to central Rome, it is... More

We were in the hostel for 2 nights, and had a very good time. Positioned near Vatican, and near the hostel there are bus stops with buses going to the city center. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and in general a really nice stay in the hostel.
