I stayed here for 6 nights in late March. Really excellent location, right near termini so you can just jump on the train to all the main tourist locations, OR walk everywhere like I did. You are given a map when you check-in which is nice, however the staff weren't very nice or helpful. I was travelling with a friend,... More

I stayed for 4 nights in this hostel, really good location near Termini. The hostel itself is small but it has 3 bathrooms and like 4 rooms, so you really feel like you are sharing flat with other girls. The kitchen is small but it has the necessary like fridges and microwave. The only thing missing is cuttlery!! please get... More

I stayed here for one night prior to going on a cruise. I booked it due to the price, and its close location to the metro. Check in was across the street, I felt the woman working the desk was slightly rude, but it didn't bother me. I got a free map from there, and she then took me and... More

I would recommend this if you are solo and want to be safe. It definitely is safe and about a 5-10 min walk from the train station. It is also near many restaurants and every morning they have a market outside on the street with clothes, fresh produce. The hostel is great for interacting with other travellers as well. I... More

I stayed here in June with a friend while on a month long trip around Europe. The facilities were excellent: free wifi, and two desktop computers also connected to the internet that were free to use; a kitchen, which lacked a proper oven but had everything else you could possibly need; the bathrooms were clean and very nice; there were...

I cannot recommend Papaya high enough! I stayed here for 4 nights as a solo female traveller and after some bad experiences at previous hostels regarding poor hygiene or safety I was thoroughly relieved to find Papaya was just as promised online. It was bright and light, modern, decorated, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was modern & fitted with... More

Besides one handsy male helper, this place was great! The wifi worked, the bathrooms were beautiful and I felt very safe. Not to mention the location was very good. :) Just know that you have to check in across the street. I had a rough time lugging my backpack up one building only to find out I had to go... More

We stayed at the Papaya hostel for a week and found it to be clean, safe and comfortable. It was a great way to meet other travellers, chill after a hard days sightseeing and it has everything you need to make the holiday a great one. Staff at the Il Papavero who administer the hostel were fantastic and nothing was... More

Initially a bit difficult to find on Via Castelfidardo. You check in at the hotel across the road. However I couldn't recommend this place enough. The bathroom was clean and modern, the hostel was very competitively priced (free wi-fi and lockers) and it was a 10-15 min walk from the train station where you can get the train or bus... More

I've stayed at one other hostel in Rome (which was very nice as well), but I have heard some true horror stories. Do not worry about that at Papaya! I stayed there for four days on my first ever international trip-alone. The rooms were clean. It wasn't hot outside so I can't account for air conditioning, but the place was... More
