In six weeks of backpacking this was my worst hostel experience by far. It was hot, noisy, dirty and an overall bad experience. The bathroom constantly had standing water on the floors, the rooms were over-packed and extremely stuffy. The place was not particularly clean and perhaps most annoying of all is that they lock you out of the hostel... More

Ivanhoe was social, fun, and the staff really looks after their guests. There were free pasta dinners and organized bar/club crawls and the staff team came along to show us the way! It made a huge difference in bringing everyone together. Everyone was friendly, the showers were fine, the beds were clean, and I would recommend it to anyone who... More

One of the best hostels I have ever visited!! Came on the trip with 4 others and made plenty of new friends at the hostel. The rooms were clean as were the bathrooms. Having a 24 hour reception made it great for going out in the evenings, knowing you would always be allowed back in. The owners were incredible, they... More

Nice place with a lively atmosphere. Host tried to get to know everyone and made the experience fun, even bringing us out at night. Clean bathrooms. Internet access available. There is a kitchen and breakfast can be obtained for 2 Euros. If you like to party, this is great but if you want to sleep, that's also fine as there... More

Out of the 22 days I spent traveling Europe, I didn't find a better staff than at this hostel. They made sure we had a great time. Great atmosphere, made everyone free sangria, dinners, and free breakfast if you slept on the top bunk. Everyone in the hostel got to know each other. One night, a staff member even brought... More

This place is perfect for young world travelers. It is frequented by many young people from all over the world. They have Spagetti and Cocktail night every other evening and the hostel's staff takes you out for partying in Rome. Accomodation is adequate. The Hostel is near the Colloseo, so you don't have to wal far in to the city

The staff here is amazing. Super helpful fun and nice, put out beer pong and have pregaming on the weekends. Had a really fun experience, it's definitely intentioned for young travelers who want to party. My bed was comfortable enough, there were enough showers and toilets, fairly clean, they also have a cheap breakfast that was a nice perk. Definitely... More

HORRIBLE! WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! I have stayed at better hostels in third world countries. The place was covered in mold and dirt. My sheets had blood on them. The floors had filth all over them. Showers looked like they haven’t been cleaned in years! When I complained at the end of my stay about how dirty everything was the manager... More

AVOID HOSTEL AT ALL COST! Absolutely NO SECURITY! One person in the room had their stuff stolen. My stuff was rummaged through. All manager had to say was “Well, it’s a hostel.” The lockers are the size of a laptop and there are only 4 lockers for 12 people! No lock or key given and the door to the hostel... More

This hostel was only 10€ a night so although we didn't necessarily want a party hostel, my bf and I decided to take a chance. Turned out alright, we got a very cheap bed and met a few ppl, but they all seemed pretty young. Annoying that the host guy kept pushing us to drink, like I get its a... More
