There have been some mixed reviews, but this was my favourite place to have stayed out of all the places I visited in Italy! I was in a four-bed dorm on the 2nd (or maybe 3rd?) floor. There was an elevator, but it was teeny-tiny, and I prefer stairs anyway. The room opened up off a common area.
The room was clean, the sheets were clean and to top it off, we had a working television, air conditioner and our own bathroom! The showerhead holder was broken but we used duct tape to tape it back up, which was fine. Had to be up and out of the room at 10am each day for cleaning, but this was no problem as we were out and about all day, everyday!
Bonded very well with my dorm mates. One girl had asked for an all-girls dorm but had accidentally been put into our mixed dorm. The hostel gave her a bottle of wine in apology, which we all thought was really nice.
Wifi was perfect (fast and reliable) and there were computers as well as a kitchen downstairs (with fridge-space), shops just down the road, and 24-hour reception. Just a 5-10 min walk from the main train station as well, which is handy.
Would not recommend the morning croissant and coffee.. but I'm not much of a breakfast person anyway. Also wouldn't recommend the 3 euro pasta place either; right next to it is a place called La Famiglia and at Via Volturno 44 (just around the corner) is a place called Ristorante Famiglia Allam. Head to one of those instead, had great meals at both (and the staff were really entertaining at the second restaurant- so many laughs)!
But the accommodation was great; I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the area :o)
