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

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. The... More

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
