We only stayed here for one night and couldn't wait to leave the next morning. Dirty smelly bathroom, furniture falling apart and pillows with the thickness of a teabag. No wifi or tv. Our room was on the second floor and the lift wasn't working, and nobody helped us out with luggage. The breakfast ladies don't even pretend to be... More

After arriving here, the staff was friendly with us (at least the man from the mornings), the rooms are big and clean, and it is located well, near the train station and close to many restaurants. The only downside is that the wifi works only at the reception and you need to pay for it.

We visited this hotel in march this year. The name in the booing said Hotel Montestella which it was not. Very small room to fit 5 people. It's in the same old building as other 3 or 4 hotels - some of them with more than one name. Staff was too rude specially one serving the breakfast which was mere... More

I stayed here in July 2013. The manager was really helpful, he pointed us in the right direction for getting our laundry done, good food and so on. He was also really nice and polite to my girlfriend and I. The rooms are really cheap and basic, but they are excellent value. They have a fridge and air conditioning. The... More

The rooms are basic but clean and the street is quiet so we slept well, especially with ac. Wifi is not available in the rooms, only in the lobby and only for one hour and only between the hours of 8am to 10pm. What a joke! Staff were unfriendly.

We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights in mid July. The room, although basic, was clean and comfortable making for a good nights sleep. However, we found the customer service to be abysmal! Upon arrival we were greeted by the receptionist Farid, who proceeded to fire off the details of the hotel as quickly as possible and when asked... More

The hostel was kind of ugly from outside, but the room is very clean and confort. For the price it was very good. There is no elevator from the front door to the reception, and it has like 6 steps. But to the room there is one, but not very nice. The location is good, 3 blocks from the Termini.... More

After trudging around the strips north of the Rome termini, stargate was a haven above the rather dodgy part of the city... The frontmen who we spoke to were friendly enough, sorting us out at about 11:00pm, arriving dust covered from Firenze!! The room was pretty much what we came to expect for a 'budget' room in Rome. We had... More
