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...

This place was great. The staff was very helpful, the location was pretty decent, and the WIFI works well. We stayed in an all female dorm. That's what I reserved, although when we got there they said we had a 'free upgrade' to an all female dorm, so that was odd. Their breakfast is slightly expensive, but still decent. They... More

This hostel was our first one and had everything we needed! We stayed in a comfortable 8 bed dorm with plenty of locker space. The air con kept it cool, although was a little noisy. Showers and toilets right across the hall and I never had to wait. There is good space to take items in without anything getting wet.... More

The shared room of 8 was very big with a lot of space, downstairs was a nice communal area where we watched the world cup which had a nice atmosphere. The hostel was clean and I never had a problem waiting for toilets or showers but would recommend flip flops as with any hostel. Again noise and light of other... More

I stayed in this hostel for just one night, because trains didn't run late enough for me to get to my next destination. It was even closer to Roma Termini station than Google Maps had led me to believe, because apparently Google Maps doesn't know that there are multiple exits from the station. Everyone spoke fluent English, even the gallant... More
