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

The people who run this hostel will do anything for you! They are very helpful! I didn't like how the showers didn't have a place you could change privately attached! And sometimes I didn't feel that the area was the safest place to be...

I stayed alone at this hostel July 8th and checked out on July 12th. The staff was very nice, friendly and answered all my questions about getting around the city. The rooms were small but clean. I was able to walk to bus stations and metro stations, so the location was good for me. If I'm back in Rome, traveling... More

I wouldn't even be able to call this a hostel because that isn't what it is. This hostel sunshine is an apartment that someone is attempting to run as a hostel, except they are doing a terrible job. After it taking 30 minutes to find the location of the hostel from Termini, we found ourselves at the door of an... More

Next time I pay 60 euros for a room, I expect to get one with a lock on the door. When I discovered that my lock was broken, all I got for an answer was a shrug from a gormless night staff man who told me to 'prop a chair under the door'. I don't appreciate the fact that nothing... More
