It is impossible to find this hostel. They are located on the 5th floor of an apartment building in a back alley with a tiny sign in the intercom. We eventually found our way up to be greeted by two seriously unfriendly guys who had obviously turned their apartment into hostel dorms. It was cash only which was no problem.... More

I was expecting the worst having read the reviews but was surprised by how much I liked the hostel. I was lucky to find it thankfully for a guy standing on the street who knew exactly where it was!! The kitchen was very useful and I cooked in three of my four nights which allowed me to save a lot... More

I only recommend people who have good location skills to sleep in "the sellar" which we only managed to find thanks to our sleeping buddy's that we met at the check in desk 5 hours earlier! But besides that it's nice to sleep somewhere cheep that is close to the main train station!

1st: its very difficult to find it. There are no signs in the street. Its filthy, noisy, hot, unmaintaned, terrible matraces. We haven't booked in advance; came directly, they gave us no bill, and we were charged more than agreed price, with no explanation. When we asked how&why they didn't undarstand what were we asking. In general they don't speak... More

Very bad, got to live in a cellar with bad air and bad smell. The bathroom was horrible and I couldn´t get any warm water. One guy smoked in the kitchen all the time so the dormroom was filled with smoke, not good! Free WiFi though..

I don't want to stay at that hostel again. Stayed there in June 2014. Location is brilliant - 5 minutes away from Termini train station (main one), plenty of restaurants around aaaaand........and that's it. Italy is very expensive and it gets obvious when you pay quite a lot for a hostel like this. No one is there at the reception... More

First of all, it's really hard to find this place. No signs at all. Even when I walked in, I had to ask if I was at the right place. It didn't feel safe at all. We asked for a shared room but the guy at the front office gave us a private room (which was a good thing but... More

This place was absolutely disgusting. I stayed here a whole six days and it seemed to be something out of a horror movie. During the 6 days I saw 5 different guests use the same blanket and it was never washed. The only thing seemingly clean is the sheets they give you. I dont think they ever clean the blankets... More

The location is prime, just a couple minutes from Termini. The price is good, the kitchen is open for use...sure it's not a huge kitchen, but it stores food and allows you to cook. What else could you want. It was a small hostel, which I prefer...ot allows you to bond with fellow travelers (and out on their veranda which... More

The hostel seems to have a lot of bad reviews but I quite liked it here! It was clean and I always felt like my belongings were safe. The front desk guy is super awesome and very friendly. I also met a lot of cool people here! They have a nice balcony and I also get a good sleep. Would... More
