The hostel location is reasonably close to places you may need such as Termini station, Colosseum and nation street. If you couldn't find it just don't panic , it is just there but in a big apartment there is only one bell on the wall that "Sandy " is written on it. Yes that is sandy hostel. It is on... More

The location of the hostel is the only positive thing about it, it's a short walk from the Colosseum and the metro station. It was on the fourth floor, I usually don't have problems climbing stairs but it was quite the workout taking those every day. The rooms are very basic, there was hair on my bed sheets which wasn't... More

I stayed here for one night after a cruise, and was leaving Rome the next day. I found the place very easy to find, as I had the address written down - pretty simple. I arrived early before check in, but I was able to leave my bags there and check out the city, and then come back later. I... More

If you are reading this and have booked a room, don't panic. I did upon reading these reviews. It is not hard to find if you can count building numbers. Granted the climb to the 4th floor is a challenge even for the athletic!! We were welcomed by a guy who was really friendly and helpful. We had 2 beds... More

We booked this "hotel" at the last minute while studying abroad in a graduate program. When we saw all the horrible reviews we quickly started regretting our payment. However, when we got there we were refreshingly surprised. I believe most people are probably dissatisfied with this hostel because it's called "Hotel Sandy" and they are expecting a luxurious hotel, or... More

I stayed here in june 2012. In general acceptable accommodation option (for undemanding tourists), but can be better. Minuses: location is closer to the station than to the attractions. Inconvenient to find and the stairs were bad. Noisy, when there were many guests. Pluses: the price matches the quality. The staff was friendly and diligent. WiFi was good. Summary: for... More

The place is VERY difficult to find and very hot. But for the price its close to train station and i met some really cool people here. The staff was nice and i felt very safe at the hostel and it is kept decently clean.

After reading all the reviews before finding the place, I started to get nervous. The place was NOT that bad, though! If you pay attention to the directions they give you on the confirmation email and watch the building numbers, the place is NOT difficult to find. The location is wonderful--within walking distance of the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the... More

First of all I have never written a complaint email in my life, but I want to warn any other innocent travellers like ourselves from wrecking what could be a good time in Rome. Ok so where do I start!? Firstly, you cannot find the hostel anywhere. There was no sign out the front, it was just fortunate that I... More
