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.

The hostel was in a great location with clean rooms. The owner was waiting for us when we got there and had everything ready to go. Very friendly and helpful. Let us keep our bags there for the whole day after we checked out for free. Only downside was the four flights of stairs we had to climb everyday. Otherwise... More

I was so scared as I read all the comments and the feedback from everyone.. BUT this HOSTEL is really great, the rooms and utilities are clean, the location is PERFECT, this was one of the best hostel I've stayed in. The only problem is that if you traveling by yourself and you stay for a quite long time there... More

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

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.
