This hostel is located perfectly, next to the Vatican and 5 minutes walk from the metro station. However, the rest is pretty bad. There is no common room, the "TV" they're advertising for is only in use for the owners and placed in the small hallway. There are no computers as on the pictures. Beds are really bad, not comfortable... More

I stayed here during easter break. On my first night, I got what I thought was a mosquito bite but then I broke out into at least 10 super itchy bites on my neck, arms, ankles, and back. They swelled up. I looked really ill for my vacation pictures, full of red spots. I checked the bed and noticed the... More

We stayed there for three nights. The place was very easy to find from the trainstation. Max. five minutes walk. It was also pretty close to anything. On the other hand our room was on the streetside so the noise was quite loud. Rooms and toilets were comfortables so nothing to complain about those. Security may be problem for someone,... More

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

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
