I have spent 3 nights in Sandy Hostel. I would say I was definitely satisfied with the service at Sandy. The location is perfect, rooms are clean and staff is international and friendly. All major transportation hubs (Termini A/B lines, Cavour B) are located in the vicinity of the hostel which makes it perfectly possible to catch a bus to... More

If you really want to hang... More

I was staying in Sandy Hostel for one night during my short visit to Rome. I'd say the hostel is located in a perfect area which could be easily reached from Termini and Fori Imperiali/Piazza Venezia. Sandy Hostel is a perfect place to stay in Rome during a short trip. Its offer combines great value with affordability. It's a very... More

The Sandy hostel is central and closed to the main attractives in Rome and train and metro station Termini. It offers everything a guest needs: good bedroom and bathroom, but the difference is the treatment team, which offers good tips and assistance to the experience be the best of Rome.

The staff is friendly and helpful. The room is simple (there isn't a wardrobe to append the clothes) but clean and there was bathroom inside. There is almost nothing to have breakfast and there are no common area to mesh with other people. It's a very good place to stay for a small number of days. Good balance quality/price.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
