We stayed here for 5 nights. The staff was all very nice and helpful. It was a good size room for being in Europe. Good location too, few blocks from train station. Would stay again if we come back to Rome.

Hotel des artistes (also known as carlitos) was very nice. Clean bathrooms, great size rooms, and awesome rooftop terrace. Just make sure that you bring your own toiletries. The entrance is a little bit tricky to find. Great value for the price!

The outside leaves a bit to be desired and I was skeptical of what I would find after exiting the old elevator and making my way to my room. But shame on me, my room and stay was great. The room was clean and nice sized. The decor was what I expected for Rome. I will say the walls are... More

Just off the subway at Castro Pretorio and a few blocks from Termini station, this hostel has a friendly vibe and great staff. By no means glamorous and could use a few more common areas, but it does the job for a price that's hard to beat. Bonus points for the excellent wi-fi and mouthwatering pizza just around the corner.

this place was such good value for money! it has hostel prices and, granted, you sleep with other people in the room, but the furniture is really more hotel style (no bunk beds! and there's a tv, wardrobe and table in solid wood and so on) which gives it a more homely feel, the bathrooms are clean, everything is clean,...
