They charge an tax upon arrival that was not clear by the time we were booking and the staff was so disorganised we had to change our room because a bigger group was arriving. The toilet was tiny and smelled bad, the shower didn't work well. The breakfast was awful and if you're thinking of staying here because you'd get... More

The location was very close to the metro and Colosseum. Good Italian coffee, you can use the kitchen. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is worth the value. I was in a girls dorms, but the beds were not that comfortable.

The room I was in was a 6 female dorm and it was cleaned daily and the wi-fi worked perfectly in there. The... More

Now after some traveling and comparing I can see that this hostel is superb. We booked a 4 bed room. It was super clean, nicely furnished, very cosy. Staff was very helpful, we used their kitchen a lot. The last day we checked out in the morning, but we were leaving in the evening only, we had some rain as... More

As for the location, the hostel is located 10 minutes walk from the Collosseum which means that the... More

Our stay at the Ciak Hostel was pleasant and comfortable. The service is good, the rooms are a bit small but still fine and the bathrooms are big enough. The area were the hostel is situated is fine and close to a supermarket, metro station and there are also busses and trams you could use. The hostel is from walking... More

We took the airport shuttle bus from Fiumicino airport to Termini station. You would think it would be difficult to navigate your way around Termini station but it is pretty easy to get around. The above ground area of the station is where you would catch the trains that would take you to other parts of Italy or other countries... More

Good location, very close to the metro station Manzoni, also close to Termini. Staff is kinda mixed. Bare minimum breakfast, springy beds, just-about-functional bathrooms. Wifi only works in the lobby. Nothing spectacular, but if you're in Rome for 2 or 3 days you won't spend too much time indoors and therefore should be fine.

The hostel is well located - about 15 mins from the Termini station and about 5 mins from the Manzoni metro station. There is a tram stop at the Manzoni station which takes you to Colosseum. There is also a super market nearby for groceries. We had a private room in the basement of the 'Secret Garden' which is another... More
