Coconuts is advertised to females but located right outside is always a bunch of men loitering which can be quite offputting in the dark. It is located right next to termini which is really convenient and like most hostels is walking distance to alot of the major sights. The room itself was good and the bathroom ok. The lockers were grwat and a good size for large backpacks. There is no common area and so its pretty hard to meet people and make friends. Id recommend it if you are in rome only for day or two and are relying heavily on the termini station.
