So we've decided to spend 6 days in Rome, so we can explore everything without being overwhelmed or exhausted. The staff is brilliant here, very friendly and they actually help plan out your stay there. There's a blonde girl (super pretty) who tells you exactly where and what to do and how to get there, and where the locals go.... More

As well as the main hostel, M&J have several boutique style rooms about half a block away, and despite being the same price, the two are so different I really feel they should be reviewed separately. We stayed for two nights in a double room in the main hostel, and returned for a final night before leaving room, staying in... More

Make sure you have a bed time chat with Johannes, he is a beautiful man. A must for anybody staying in Rome. I would not have stayed in this hostel if it were not for Johannes. Peace brother x Aimee and Matt x

Not the highlight of my trip, but a nice place to stay. Good bar downstairs for a drink and to watch some sports after a long day of sight seeing. Close to the main train station and the close by restaurants that I tried were nice.

Being as cheap as the hostel was my expectations weren't high but on the website it specifically says they provide WiFi and lockers. The WiFi only works in one certain area and the lockers are by the reception and only big enough to fit a passport. Beds were very unstable and bathrooms were very dirty the sink flooded and obviously... More

I've stayed in hostels in other countries like in Singapore but it was not exactly what I expected: Good points: - near the Termini station - near a Filipino restaurant - breakfast was available at the café downstairs for 3 euros only - cappuccino, croissant and orange juice - Clean room Bad points: No fan in the room - it...

I'd never meet with so a big lie! The opinions and informations was totally diffrent than reality. The staff was very rude, not all i dont want to generalize. The worst think is the lagguage room where i could leave my staff. It was dirrty, terrible room, old bathroom, everybody can enter there - so my staff wasn't safety. I'm... More

I stayed here 5 nights with a friend in July. The hostel is located very well, close to Termini, the central station of Rome. However it's very old and crappy. The beds actually need replacement (you think they will break down when someone swaps sides) and we stayed in a room next to the street which almost made it impossible... More
