“Great Hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2006

We ordered a private double without ensuite and got a huge quad room with bathroom so that was a nice surprise! A person was sent to our room early in the morning though which we weren't happy with, obviously the member of staff at the time wasn't aware we had booked a private room. The location was brilliant, only 5 mins from termini station and about 25 mins from the Colluseum (or 10 mins by tube), the cost was the cheapest we could find (book through hostelbookers.com) and the staff really friendly and knowledgable. They directed us to restaurants, souvenier places and bars. The breakfast lady was really rude though and 1 pastry and a coffee is now what i call breakfast but for the price i can't really complain. i'd definately stay again and recommend to anyone.

We stayed here for 6 days and had a wonderful experience - I would recommend it highly. The staff were hugely helpful and friendly, and gave us advice as to the best restaurants in the area surrounding Termini Station etc. We stayed in a twin room which had a lovely stone floor and stone ceiling and was quiet and fully air-conditioned which was a real bonus - Rome in July is SOOO hot! Our room was also equipped with a TV, fridge and computer with internet access (at no extra charge). We booked an ensuite room and our bathroom was kept spotlessly clean with a really great shower. The breakfast provided was adequate, comprising a sweet croissant and tea or coffee. The area the hostel was in was perfect for a back-packer. It's about 5 minutes walk to Termini Station from where you can get a bus, metro, or train more or less anywhere you like. As an aside, on one of the days we were in Rome, the metro and bus workers were on strike rendering these services out of use for the day. So we took the train to a hill-side town called Tivoli just outside of Rome, and as it transpired, the gardens at Villa D'Este (by far the most breath-taking I've ever seen) were a highlight of our trip. To sum up, this is the best hostel I've ever stayed in, and I would certainly stay here again.
