We stayed in a 6 bedroom dorm for 4 nights here. The dorms were pretty big and a pillow cover, sheet and blanket is provided. The bathrooms are usually very clean until peak hour bathroom time in the morning and when the staff clean it around 11. There's also a separate bathroom for women which my girlfriend found useful.

No complaints about this hostel. Rooms were clean and roomy, bathrooms were also clean. Good lockers for our bags, good kitchen and dining space that anyone can use. They also have the possibility to pay for breakfast which we did both mornings I was there as it was very good value. Would recommend.

Excellent location if you're travelling in from Termini station - two minute walk. We were surprised at the age of our other room guests, as they were older than those at other hostels - however Alessandro Palace (same chain) hosts party nights and rooftop parties - so there's something for all ages. Staff were very helpful, and suggested many good... More

August 2014, my third stay here, and I have never been let down. The hostel is incredibly conveniently located near Termini station, and it's easy to walk basically anywhere from here. The rooms and, most importantly, the washrooms are always clean. Not too much noise comes in from outside. I've never had bad roommates here either! They also offer women's-only... More

Had a decent stay. The room mates were not ideal. But that's no reflection of the establishment. Spacious, tidy rooms and free wifi spots. I thought that it was a very convenient location, and made my stay in Rome pretty pleasant. Would definitely stay again.

Arrived early to Rome so headed to the Hostel around 10 am to leave my luggage and checked in but had to wait until 3pm rooms were not ready. Location is pretty close to Termini Train station, 10 minute walk from the hostel. Room are very spacious, had a... More

Clean, spacious. A lot of showers that work properly. Professional and helpful stuff. Very close to the train station, that is a plus and minuse since the street itself is very dark, filthy, noisy. One doesn't feel quite safe. 20 min walking distance to the center. In the room it was very hot, no ac. If you choose to open... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a nice stay- big, clean rooms with a shared bathroom and kitchen/dining area. Location was good in that it was near to the train station (5minutes away) however it isn't in the nicest of areas, it felt a bit unsafe and dodgy. It is a 20 minute walk away from the centre of...
