I start by saying that I stayed in the main building, so I don't know anything of the other one mentioned in these reviews. Anyway, it's not sophisticated at all, no comfort whatsoever, but it's one of the cheapest in Rome (or at least it was when I booked there), so what could you expect? My bed was clean and... More

Mattress were uncomfortable, the room smelled really bad, the guy at the « front desk » didn’t care at all AND my iPod got stolen in the « luggage room » witch is pretty much in front of the front desk, in the living room/kitchen. NO hot water, shared bathroom. We were 2 young adults so we didn’t really care... More

Just no. We had a terrible experience. As three female college students, we booked a room together in the "B&B" next door, however, we were put in the Two-Ducks Hostel and SPLIT UP. Two girls placed five floors below! Sketchy staff with unfriendly attitudes, we were appalled at our treatment. Hot water was random, and the kitchen was atrocious. No... More

Good things about the hostel: really close to Termini, bed was comfortable, wifi worked perfectly, you can smoke in the hallway (instead of going down 5 floors, although I suppose if you don't smoke that's a disadvantage!) Bad things about the hostel: where do I even start!? The showers are literally a trickle of cold water and there is NO... More

We stayed there for 4 nights. As others noticed there are still no sigh of hostel at via calatafimi 41.

we stayed at this hostel for 3 nights a couple of weeks ago (nov 2012). A) the hostel is located on a shady side alley with no visible sign. the actual hostel office is 5 floors up in this shady apartment building. the reception was lackluster, the hostel itself dirty and not very warm/welcoming. B) after paying, we were told... More

DO NOT STAY HERE, Doesn't matter how cheap or convenient it is. The hostel staff WILL steal from you. I only left my belongings in the hostel for 10 minutes while I went to the shop (only staff were in plus there was only one other person in the hostel staying at all) and they had gone through my stuff...

This hostel ruin Italy's reputation at a whole. They will allocate you a room which is not as stated, dirty, unfriendly, smelly, rude and dishonest staff. Do not leave your luggage for them to take care although they allowed you to do so because they will ransack your luggage and steal your belongings and when you confronted them, they will... More

Sheets are not totally included but a kind of blanket is at disposal. there are 5 beds in a room and not 3 as it is written... More

Firstly there is zilch signage out on street so I spent wasted time walking round in circles (this is really an apartment in a block and no signage avoids tax I was told). Not really a proper hostel ie. no common area to chill out; small dirty kitchen; tiny toilet & shower cubicles; unreliable hot water; beds are old and... More
