If you like silver linings, this place isn't for you. PROS: -check out. CONS: -advised upon arrival to take a seat by receptionist because he was eating dinner and would check me in when he was finished, which was 15 minutes later. Not what I wanted to hear after a long day traveling. -rude reception, bent passport during check in.... More

I've never seen such rude and unwelcoming behaviour on hostel staff. On top of all: their price of a bed is 16 euros but if you come there without reservation they make you pay more! They made us pay 20 euros and when we asked why we did not get any explanation, we did not get any receipt either, but... More

Horrible staff. Shiiiiiit customer service. Filthy. Other people in the room/s had bed bugs. Threatening emails from the manager when I told them about my bad experience. Would not recommend. Spend a little more and go for something a bit better

This is a very typical youth hostel at the first sight. Situated in the heart of piazza bologna, you can find the only youth hostel nearby just right next to the one of the most popular Italian bars in town, "Meeting place". This hostel is just really for sleep and meet people from all around the world. A beautiful Italian... More

Other than its great location just a few blocks from the metro, this is one of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. Yes, it had wifi, yes it had a mini-kitchen area (not a full kitchen, nobody cooked), and yes there was a common area with tables where people could mingle and chat about their adventures that day, but...

Well it was the last stop of our trip and it was lashing rain in Rome for the duration so perhaps it made the hostel a bit more gloomy. It was near the metro which was handy but the area it's in, there wasnt much to do. I was disappointed that they allowed a 60 year old woman to stay... More

First of all, they didnt have what they promise, the reception wasnt open 24hrs, the guys from the reception were rude, and didnt help me out with any problems, the bathroom was really small and the shower was terrible and the doors didnt close, so every time someone take a shower, the whole room become a pool. the worst part...

No flare to this place really but the staff were helpful and friendly and let us stay and use the wifi and toilets in the afternoon even though we checked out in the morning. Wifi was fine, not spectacular but certainly useable. Atmosphere wasn't great, kind of cold. But there is a common area with tables and chairs and kitchen... More

Youth Station Hostel is by far the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. We stayed during a few of the hottest days of the year and hoped we had found a great home away from home to provide a bit of comfort for us after full days of sightseeing. Instead, we were subjected to inhumane conditions not even suitable for... More
