I have been badly bitten here by home insects. The pictures underneath will give you an idea. The species is called cimex lectularius. The most unpleasant fact is that the bites cause allergic reaction and itching of the spots, which may be on the whole body. There is no way of getting rid of the bugs by cleaning floors or... More

We were there for 4 nights in a double room with private bathroom. The room was small but nice, bathroom was almost as big as the room and clean. The hostel is very good located, maybe 15 min walking from the Colloseum. The staff is very friendly. There was a very nice view from our room

I stayed at the Cherry Hostel from June 2nd to 6th and had expected more than what I got, although I was prepared for something less than average since I am a student. I arrived alone around 2 o'clock by the Leonardo Express at the Termini, which is only about 10 minutes walk from the hostel. The location is practical... More

Upon arrival back at 6, had to wait, and was taken to a... More

Although small, this hostel is perfect for me, as it would be for any lone traveler who wants to have all the comforts of a hotel while still experiencing the warmth of a family.
