This IS a very nice hostel! The surrounding area it's not very pretty if you walk around at night, but it's really close to Termini Station. The staff was very kind and helpful; the breakfast was good and cheap; the room was very comfortable and clean and the atmosphere of the place is very friendly.

I travelled for 4 days, and stayed there 3 nights. If you are planning to go sightseeing and be out most of the time anyway as you do on big city vacations this hostel was perfect. I found the accommodation clean, the facilities were present and functional and it was a great location to the main terminal and everything else.... More

Stayed there at a 12 bedroom. The staff were very friendly always worried about our well being, if we were having fun or not. Their location is also good, a few minutes from the central station and defenitely a good place to stay for those travelling alone

The hostel was a bit on the seedy side but the location is perfect. The cleanliness was mediocre at best. If you just need a place to crash this place will hit the spot. I appreciate that places like this exist so I can spend my money on experiences rather then overpriced hotel rooms.

For location this hostel is hard to beat. Only a 2 minute walk (at most) from Roma Termini station and surrounded by cheap take away shops it makes getting around easy. The Wifi however was inconsistent at best, often dropping out. The streets around the hostel were quite dirty and leave you with a bad impression of Rome. The breakfast... More

There is literally nothing to complain about. The hostel is very well located. About 15-20 min walk to the Colosseum, half an hour to the city center (Trevi Fountain, Pantheon) and for those who do not like walking, there is a metro station about 2 minutes away. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm, there were lockers for each person... More

This hostel is mediocre at best. The rooms are... sort of clean. Other than adding new sheets and folding blankets, there has been no sweeping done to the room I was in during the time I was staying there. The staff is semi-pleasant, but they leave a lot to be desired. Getting them to pay attention to the questions that... More

When we arrived, the guy who did the check in, was talking to us and when new people were behind us, he started to talk to them as well. It was kind of weird in my opinion. Just finish our talk before talking to others. Same next day I wanted to ask someone to the reception. Someone at the desktop... More

Only stayed one night but good location right next to main station, bathrooms not bad, rooms satisfactory. Didn't get to see anything of the kitchen (breakfast is extra but not expensive). Staff were helpful and that time of year at least isn't expensive.

This hostel is in a great location, right by the main train station BUT the room smelled like paint fumes. Everytime you turned towards the wall in your sleep all you breathed in was fumes. it was TERRIBLE. Definitely lost brain cells because of it. Other than that, the terrace was great and even though you had to pay 4... More
