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

This is a great place to meet new people, drink and have fun. They have a free cocktail party every other day, and free pasta party on the others, so there's always people around. They have a 12 am curfew so people can also sleep and walk around Rome the next day. However, my friends and I could never have... More

In terms of location, it was a great hostel. We were walking distance from many of the attractions in Rome, the staff were very welcoming and it was generally pretty clean. They make it very easy to meet everyone who is staying at the hosel, they host a series of events and it is oriented towards younger people(18-30). There is... More

My mate and I stayed in the Ivanhoe for a 4 day trip to Rome. (4 days is way too much, you can really do it in 1.5-2.5 days) We stayed in a mixed 6 bed dorm and had no problems. Things seemed clean, for a hostel. Plenty of showers, all clean (I forgot shower sandals and showered barefoot. I... More

On first arrival we was wondering if we had made a mistake booking here, but the staff made us feel instantly at home. The rooms were pretty small, but were clean and had everything we needed. The wifi was fine (I was able to stream the football one night without the wifi dropping off) and there was even 3 computers... More

Ivanhoe hostel is somewhere I would go back to just because they were so nice there! The hostel itself was average but the staff were amazing. They gave us free pasta one night, free cocktails and three bottles of wine! They also cooked our dinner for us that we bought. The wifi is perfect. Such good people there and the... More

This hostel is right behind the Coliseum, a short walk to the fountain and surrounded by the best ice creameries in Rome. BUT (and there's a BIG BUT) the water was cold in mid winter in January, there was no hot water, the bathroom was all wet and quite disgusting. NO mention about the service, the guy from reception was... More

Admittedly, on first glance we started to wonder what we'd let ourselves in for, but after just two nights staying here, it began to feel like home. This was the first hostel I have ever stayed in so naturally, I was a little nervous, but it turned out to be really great. The rooms are kinda small, but the whole... More

Prior to my visit I sent numerous emails requesting info from the hostel. These were largely ignored and regardless of my attempts questions went unanswered. Eventually gave-up and canceled my reservation, in favour of a better run establishment. Poor service, recommend avoiding!
