Stayed in a private room with en suite this week. Excellent value at only 70 euro a night, the room was spotless and the bathroom clearly newly decorated. Air conditioning a welcome extra. The included breakfast was pretty basic and we normally didn't bother but for the traveller trying to save cash it would be very welcome. Great location, great... More

Stayed 3 nights with partner in 4bdrm with bathroom. Place is fairly central (10-15mins) to a few of the sites like Spanish steps. Close to main train station(10mins) and 5mins to Barbernini??? Something like that. Staff are really friendly and help you look for information, place is really clean! Small area for TV and breakfast to meet others and decent... More

I enjoyed staying at this hostel. It felt cosy to me and it felt great to be greeted with a pretty receptionist every night my friend and I return to the hostel. The place is clean overall and I would strongly recommend it for short-term travellers.

This hostel is nicely located in the very centre of Rome and pretty close to everything. Rooms are decent size, and showers and toilets are clean. However - don't forget to bring your own towel, as these are only provided for extra charge. There are also lockers in the rooms to store your luggage - but you have to bring... More

I stayed in this hostel early-mid Oct 13 for around 2 weeks. This was the first time that I had stayed in a hostel and the first time as a lone traveller. This hostel is reasonably priced with a wide selection of rooms to choose from. I stayed in the 4 bed with a bath room and the 3 bed... More

Great location near Barberini - Fontana di Trevi metro station, nice staff, great room! Has elevator! Breakfast is simple but better than nothing, you can buy your own stuff and store on the refrigerator. The room near the kitchen can be a bit noisy at mornings. Common área is nice, wi-fi in the room.

Can't think of what not to like about this place. Stayed in a 4-bed-ensuite dorm. Helpful staff, newly renovated, strong hot shower, lockers, wifi, clean... Only 10min walk from Termini and easy walk to Trinita dei Monti and Fontana di Trevi.

On arrival we found hostel ok. Not far from termini station. We were made to feel comfortable straight away and staff were very helpful with everything we asked about. Loved the funky room we got on first floor, looked brand new. It was private with en suite. Breakfast was good with toast and cereal and tea/ coffee, what more could... More

The staff was really nice, the rooms we stayed were pretty new, big, confortable and silient during the night. The hostel is in walking distance to the subway. The breakfast was not good, so we had breakfast in another places during our stay. They only have some toast, juice and jelly. Ana Flavia, 24y, Brazil
