Me and my friend arrived Rome almost at 9 pm. Thus, we sent an email ahead of our arrival and called upon our arrival (as it says no check in after 2 pm). Finding this place it totally irritating. The numbers on the street are not in order making it more frustrating for us to find. Although so, we managed... More

I was slightly worried after reading some of the reviews but you get exactly what you pay for. For the price you wouldn't find anything better than this so close to the centre of Rome. The hostel is clean and welcoming, it does have a rather strange choice of decoration! You get a drink and a lovely fresh pastry for... More

The hostel's offer is basic (standard rooms, shared shower, Roman style breakfast), but it was clean, comfortable, and the folks who run it are very accommodating and happy to help with things like storing luggage. It was a little bit hard to find as the road numbering system is not straightforward and there was minimal signage (just a small sign... More

I will start off with the bad to get it out of the way for there wasnt much..To start off, it took us a long time to find this hostel, probably an hour, and our other friends that were coming late it took them 3 hours to find it, and not one of the locals had heard about it before.... More

It's inside a big building so I had to wait until the opening time of the building to get inside, since I came on an early train. The owners come and open the door at 8am, so if you arrive earlier you have to make phone call, and still have to wait outside. Room is spacious and clean, however it... More

Spent a long time travelling and definitely the poorest hostel I've stayed in. Though clean, due to odd rule of 'no check in after 1400', we arrived late to a locked door and directions of how to let ourselves into the hostel. No owners around for most of the day and night. A lone young guest got denied entrance and... More

My friend and I stayed in an eight person dorm for three nights. We found sunshine hostel accommodating, and the staff really friendly! The room was comfortable and not to hot, especially being summer we thought no aircon would be horrible, but it wasn't overly warm at all. The beds are comfy and easy to sleep in, they don't make...

If you look for a cheap place to take a shower and sleep, that`s the place. If you want to meet people, have someplace to prepare some food/lunch... it`s not for you. The place looks like an old appartment that have been transformed in a hostel. They don`t have many rooms, no commom area or kitchen. The price is very... More

First of all, this hostel's location seems like not good enough but if you get inside the building, you will see different world. There is just one missing in the hostel. Kitchen. But I think it is not necessary that much. Other things are not awesome but you'll feel like home. I think it was more than expected. One more... More

Upon entering, you'll first notice the cramped space and funky decor. This hostel certainly has it's own vibe, but is worth a stay. My fiancé and I stayed in a 3-bed dorm and had no big complaints about our stay. It IS hard to find, so I would advise stopping by the information desk if arriving by train to get... More
