We booked the hotel and pre-book Vatican City trip few weeks in advance. But we only being informed that Vatican is closed on Sunday upon checked-in. Well, I personally think that we should be told in advance because we actually changed our plan to go to Vatican City instead of La Spezia! But we ended up no going to any... More

A serviceable place with a few fatal flaws: Room 101 is a single island room with noise all around- behind the headboard is the common room, on one side is reception/vending/noisy secondary meeting spot, in front is tiled hallway so everybody going by echoes into the room, to the other side is a dismal courtyard/boiler room/ laundry area that reverberates...

I got bedbugs at this place and the man that was working at the desk at the time was nice and apologetic but the owner acted like he was doing me a huge favor by giving me reduced rates for the rest of my stay when I should have gotten them for free. I don't recommend staying here. Also, it... More

The grimiest hostel I have ever seen. Please don't waste your money by staying here. My family and I left our bags in the luggage closet for a few hours and they came out drenched in some red liquid. We couldn't ever sleep because of the bar downstairs attached to the hostel. The bar/restaurant was also one of the most... More

Just got back from 5 nights here. I have stayed in numerous hostels all over the world and have never written a review before but I felt compelled to here because this place is so awful. See below a list of key things I found during my stay: No hot water in the morning and when there was hot water... More

The rooms are clean, the crew is nice and the location is o.k (next to termini station) but there is a funny smell in the rooms, you don't get a real pillow (the worst one I ever saw..) the blanket is too short to cover your entire body, the first day I had NO water at the shower (I don't... More

If you are a seasoned hostel traveller and urn for the good old days when the hostels were famous for being small, cramped, smelly, and dirty then this is your place. The up side is that it is in a great location. Right by the train and metro stations. The down side is everything else. It needs paint everywhere, the... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the 8 bed mixed dorm, booked to late I guess (?) so Rome was pretty much booked out. Anyway... I'm not a very picky traveller and don't complain much, I've been all around the globe and stayed everywhere from s**t-holes to budget nice places so I'll write the pros and cons of this place and...

My trip to the M&J Hostel was not only my first time in Rome but also my first time staying in a Hostel, and, needless to say, looking at the reviews on here I was rather worried about my friend's choice. However, for what it's worth, I actually think it was a pretty decent hostel, despite the conflicting views on... More

Pros: - The hostel is just a 5-minute walk from the Roma Termini Station. Location at its finest. - The hostel reception is open 24 hours. - The hostel staff are friendly and gave us tips on which places we can visit during our weekend trip to Rome. Cons: (My friend and I stayed in a 6 bed-female dorm for... More
