We paid 35 euro a night for the double room which would have to be the cheapest legitimate room in Rome. It's a quite adequate base to explore Rome - just don't expect 5 star service at this price.
The Hostel is in a typical old European building which is neat if not slightly charming. It is essentially a residential building with a few floors at the front housing the more upmarket Hotel Starlight, however, Hostel Starlight is on an upper floor reached via stars in the inner courtyard - there is no lift for the hostel. Our room was the only double and it shares two bathrooms with the other 3 or 4 bunk rooms. As others have written, the manager does indeed live in a nook behind a curtain in the kitchen. If you can get over this, the place is clean and quiet plus the staff are polite and easygoing. As with many hostels the breakfast service remained a mystery, so factor in a couple of euros to get coffee and croissant out.
However, I wish we halved our time and doubled our daily budget in Rome.
