This hostel provided the bare minimum, plus a lift. Security was very good but cleaning remained to be seen. I noticed that throughout my whole stay (4 days), a used bandaid was left in one shower and never, ever moved. I don't need things to be sparkling clean but that is just plain filthy. Wi-fi codes were handed out on... More

Thanks to the awesome staff who helped me with belongings forgotten on the property! Additionally, the rooms were clean and spacious with enough outlets for everyone and the awesome night out on the pub crawl! Visited with my sister in October, good social hostel for everyone.

I had the most wonderful time at this hostel! They had events every night that allowed all of the residents get out and meet each other and see the city! The breakfast is trash, but that's typical across most hostels in Italy. The wifi is a bit annoying as well, but overall I would give this hostel 5 stars because... More

Stayed at the hostel on 21,22&23rd August. Location is great as it's located right next to train station. The common kitchen is well equipped and u can do good socialising in the common room. They also keep organising events on daily basis and staff is well informed about guided tours & tourist attractions What the hostel lacks is good Wi-Fi... More

The only good thing about this hostel is the location. The facility is old. Moreover, the wifi system is hard to use and not work all the time. There were probably some problems with the generator. The light and the hair dryer in the bathroom was not working sometimes. Staff were trying to sell the trip to Vatican when checking... More

The hostel has good location e good Price, about 5 minutes by walking you will go to station Roma Termini (The principal station from Roma). By underground 2 or 5 station do you stay the Colliseum and Vaticano. I recommend for my Friends.

I originally had written this was a good hostel, until the realization that two out of the three of us that were staying at the hostel were bitten by bed bugs. Luckily, I was not bitten, but my two other friends were and one of the bites was infected. On the positive side, it's very close to Termini bus/metro station,... More

It is very close to Termini station. I'll give them that. But other aspects? No. The staff are rude, neighbourhood are not really safe. I was scared of going out at dark time, and chose to curl up in my bed until morning. That's not good if one is a female solo traveler and wants to enjoy Rome's night life.... More
