We've just stayed here for three nights and have to say it was a welcome respite from some of the rubbish hostels we have been in. It's in a great location, it's clean and Fabio could not make you feel more welcome. We had a double room with a balcony and felt more like we're in a hotel, it was... More

I was visiting Rome with a friend for a wedding. Compared to all the other guests at the wedding (who all lived at a hotel same distance from the city core) me and my friend: - we paid less - got a cosy and fun atmosphere - had free wifi - got free access to the hostel computers - free... More

If you are going to Rome, you can't find a better place to stay than Dreaming Rome Hostel. Fabio is the most accommodating host and one of the nicest people we met on our trip. He provides a great overview of the city and great advice if your time in the city is limited. This is a very social place... More

This place is great. Especially if you are travelling solo like I did you are guaranteed to meet people! I met new people every day of my trip thanks to the homey and cosy communal area. It's a tad small but it still manages to cram everyone in at dinner time where Fabio will make free pasta for everyone! The... More

This place is amazing. It was the best hostel we stayed at on our trip through Europe. It shouldn't even be classified as a hostel as it's not the typical hostel you would expect! We stayed four nights and loved it. It was easy to get to from the metro stop based on directions on the website and we were... More

If you are a solo traveller and want a place with a fantastic friendly atmosphere then look no further. Fabio is a great host and went completely out of his way to make my experience in Rome unforgettable. Free breakfast was great and group dinners were fantastic for meeting other people. Great hostel, great vibe.

The hostel is very easy to find from Termini station and close to the metro stop. Very eccentric decor, Fabio was such a great host! He makes dinner every night, which is great for travelers on a budget. Some downfalls I found were, only having two bathrooms, very very small common room, and not having a maximum age requirement for... More

We booked the dreaming hostel after reading the reviews only to arrive there and find out that it is a makeshift hostel in the mans apartment. He has squished bunk beds that have broken ladders in the `girls dorm` and the owner even pulled out a trundle to add another girl in so there was no floor space, there were... More

I stayed 3 nights in the early of June, 2014. first two nights at mix-dorm and one night at girl's dorm. It's not far from the metro station of San Giovanni which is better than near Termini. From the hostel, you can get to the Colosseum by walk and also can take bus easily near the hostel. The overall interior... More

Fabio and his team care for the Dreaming Rome hostel and it's guests. Location is just around the corner from San Giovanni and convenient to all surface and metro transport. The Colosseum etc and San Clemente are a comfortable 10-15 walk. Supermarketo and pizzerias are nearby. Good facilities for cooking your own meals, hostel wide wifi, secure residential building and... More
