As far as hostels go, this one is good. Air conditioning is wonderful (and needed in Rome) and is only a few min walk from the Metro. The rooms are clean and the staff are all very friendly and will not hesitate to help you out. It does get a bit noisy in the night but that is to be... More

There is a lot that is great about this hostel, and there are a few downsides. I'll start by saying the staff are very welcoming and great with recommendations, they told us the good spots for eating etc. The 4 bed dorm we stayed in was very clean and came with safe's we could store valuables in, as well as...

Hey there, thanks for taking the time to review us, we appreciate the time it takes and the contirbution you make to the travelling community. We're unhappy to hear you didn't enjoy your time at the hostel, but we hope you enjoyed Rome all the same. We also don't have an 8bed dorm so we're a little confused by that... More

Great location, really helpful staff, lovely rooms and a good breakfast, lifts to rooms great restaurants nearby easy walking distance to Termini train station and bus centre. Rooms are spacious and excellent showers. If there is a problem there is no early choice for breakfast if you are leaving before 7.30am

Nice hostel, quite expensive but worth it for the atmosphere. 2min walk from the main station. Free luggage storage when you check out and a common area to hang around in while you wait for your flight. Friendly staff and cheap food and the bar downstairs. I would highly recommend this hostel.

It's not worth for the price they offer. I stayed in florence in a hostel for the same price and it was totally different. They advertize a nice and cheerfull place but it's not the case. People are not friendly at all as for recommendations or tips to do in Rome. The room has no AC just a big and... More

This hostel was okay, but didn't live up to the hype, so it's nothing special really. It did the job, but nothing more. The staff were not particularly friendly, if not rude and superior. When we asked for advice on a day trip, they were very discouraging saying our 1 hour journey was 'very far' even though they had advertised... More

We had book a small private room and my girlfriend and I got upgraded to a bigger hotel room with its own bathroom when we checked in so that was fantastic from the first moment! Great rooms, and per everyone elses comments, great party vibe!

At €31-33 per night, this is comfortably he most expensive hostel I have stayed in. Unfortunately, that is where the comfort ends. The dorms are extremely warm and there is no proper air-con, just a ridiculously loud fan that is not sufficient for the job intended. The hostel itself is also very loud. Many are socialising in the bar downstairs,... More

Unlike most people who seem to pass by this Hostel for a few days before setting off somewhere else, we stayed here for an amazing 9 nights doing Rome. I can safely say it was one of the best hostel/hotel experiences I've had. The staff were amazing and friendly and know how to have a good time. The first five... More
