We stayed here for four nights in a three bed dorm. Only real complaints were that no one was around when we checked in so we had to wait with our luggage for an hour or so before the door was unlocked for us. Also, wifi was a bit spotty in our room at times, but overall the staff was... More

Pensione Ottaviano is pretty good if you don't expect luxury, let's be honest. It met our expectations and we didn't have any right to complain ;-) Rooms were clean, showers maybe not that much (they're just old) but the staff is really willing to help you anytime. If you need a map, want to chat for a bit with a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a six bed dorm room in November 2013. Our room was clean and so were the bathrooms, good wifi, the location was perfect for visitng the vatican and the staff were very friendly. The toilets and showeroom open up onto the corridor which is a bit weird but overall its not a major... More

Alright, this Hostel met all you basic needs. Very friendly staff but only there early morning and evening. But help you feel welcomed and comfortable. Location couldn't get any better for the price!!!!!! Hostel was fairly clean, but the shower situation was not the best. No towels for rent or anything and everyone showers in separate showers but in the... More

Me and my friend stayed there for 2 days, and the hostel provided everything we were looking for. Location was really easy to find and it was pretty central. Rooms were clean and tidy and staff was really friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.

It was a great staying. We were together with my boyfriend in shared room with 2 (later 3) other people. We enjoyed it very much. The employee was a foreigner but knew all attractions in Rome, The best about this place is a location next to Vatican - just 3-5 minutes walk (depends on the speed) and also not far... More

Genuinely the most disgusting hostel I've ever stayed at. Completely over priced for what they offer. Bathrooms rooms were filthy with grime and hair every where. No one should ever stay here no matter how desperate you get.

Well, I have rwote to Trip advisor that they have to remove this review because this guest never stayed in our hostel. She got a reservation for 3 nights for 2 persons by hostelworld but for the 2nd and 3th nights the system reserved for her only 1 bed because we had only that bed free for the date requested....

Okay, maybe you won't see his hat, but you see the dome of St Peter's and you are kitty-corner from the Vatican walls. The location can't be beat, less than 5 minutes to the Vatican museum and St. Peter's; 10 minute walk to the Tiber River and in the other direction, the metro station is a 5 minute walk which...

As someone who has stayed in plenty of hostels I am used to what they are and should be. This hostel was convenient in location (a stones throw from the Vatican) and the sheets were very clean, but that was where the good points ended. The rooms are dirty (don't walk around in your bare feet!) and the bathrooms are... More
