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

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
