The staff were very nice and welcoming, the hostel itself was relaxed and open. The showers had hot water, there was a kitchen, reception after 10 a.m, credit card accepted (Taxes: cash-only) Expected a lot better having read previous reviews on this site...

This is a great place to stay! It' s quite small, so you can make friends very easily. The kitchen, rooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day. You have the possibilty to use lockers and they have a washing service. Down the road there' s everything you need, two supermarkets, many places to have lunch or dinner and within easy... More

Not very close to the city center but good connection with the metro.The neighbourhood seems to be safe and there are many small cafes and restaurants near. The hostel was ok,the room was clean,also the common area. One thing that should be mentioned is that they have lockers but not a lock. That you have to buy yourself from some... More

Do not stay here. The other peoples reviews have to be lies! This place is disgusting! The kitchen and common area are filthy. The stench is something I have never experienced before. I couldn't spend more than 1 minute in there. It smelt like leaking gas and off cheese. The rooms are tiny and musty. The dust and dirt on... More

well you can book a hostel WITHOUT kitchen and get to pay for your restaurant meals, or book a hostel with kitchen and then make sure to clean it right after your use! If you don't clean AFTER YOURSELF you can't complain the kitchen smells bad, you may not know in fact if it smells bad because of yourself. The... More

Booked for 5 nights, stayed for 4. Smell and cleanliness got too much. Needs to be cleaned and aired out. 6 people per room share one toilet and shower. Bathroom gets cleaned once a day but still smells. Whole place has a musty odour. Water just trickles out the shower with no pressure at all. Shades in the room let... More

So I had a generation gap problem. It's out of center, so it's a underground ride to get... More

This place was simply hostel heaven for me. A small business that feels like a family. The host Francesco is what made it great. The staff here were top and invited guests to dine with them, always offered free food and the food here was good and really really cheap. The hostel is well equipped for its size with a... More

Last year my mom and I decided to travel to Rome! We chose this small hostel and it was perfect for us! Very clean, air conditioner, hot water. The only thing that we did not like was that we had to walk at night through a little dark street to get there. But everything else was very good!

It was a wonderful place to spend holidays! I was satisfied by the service, the administrator was extremely nice and helpful. It as lovely to find free coffee, tea and cereals. By the way, wi-fi was OK. It is necessary to point out that there are lockers in the hostel, unfortunately there were no locks. It was not mentioned in... More
