Literally the most disgusting place ever, have stayed in a few hostels in my time and this is definitely the worst. Words can't describe the lack of cleanliness in the hostel, it's not even basic. You should go there with anti-bacterial, would go as far as saying bleach. Don't know when they last changed the bed sheets, got bed bugs... More

To start things off, this place is disgusting. I went in not having high expectations because it is described as a "party hostel." However, it still went below my expectations. If you want to be hot and sweaty, afraid to walk around without shoes, have disgusting bathrooms, and what seemed to be a place that was never cleaned. Here ya... More

Having travelled before, I have to say this is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. They had a weird illogical rule where you are locked out of the hostel between 11-4pm every day for "cleaning". This is obviously a lie as the hostel is DISGUSTING, the bathrooms were never cleaned in the duration of my stay, I felt... More

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
