I've stayed in many hostels in Europe, and the "Two Ducks Hostel" in Rome must have been the worst I've ever been. I initially booked for 5 nights, but changed the hostel after the first night, and got my money back for 3 of the remaining 4 nights. There are no lockers, and you cannot lock the rooms properly.

We had reservations, but they took us to another building which had no Wi-Fi. Also, the staff claimed we didn't have reservations and they wanted to put us in separate rooms, claiming they had no free rooms, but when we pushed them suddenly there were free rooms. Turns out the receptionist was too botherd to put on one sheet on... More

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
