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

we sweach our reservation to this hostel because there was written it had an access to the kitchen which was quite important for us. But there was nothing written about the certain hours in which the oven could be used (just from 3pm-10pm) and there is no other equipment for cooking than this old oven. No electric Kettle, no microwave... More

No hot water. Very poor wi-fi. Staff was rude. Luggage room + reception and kitchen were poorly designed and were dirty. The front desk was unattended at night with no security. We paid more than what we paid to better hostels around the area. The only good side is the good location

Myself and a couple of friends needed an emergency place to stay for a night before we left Rome to travel back to the U.S. Mario offered us one of his suites for the night at a very reasonable price for 3 of us to stay there. Overall my experience was great, the wifi worked for me in the suite... More

I stayed here for a week and it was fantastic. Only negative would be that the wifi didnt work in the rooms. Mario offered every assistance necessary and even sat down for an hour with me and shared with me his local knowledge for my trip south. If i am ever in rome again i will be staying here.
