Litus Roma was clean, and the staff was generally very friendly. Breakfast was ok. The rooms were clean, but cold. Overall not a bas hostel EXCEPT the location is terrible!! Prepare yourself for a long train ride into Rome with two connections! Me and my friends are very good ad figuring out metro and train stations but we had a lot of trouble with this one. Also ostia lido is ghetto. Thats the one word i would describe it with. The people there were rude and stared at us constantly. The train station was scary, and the trains themselves are covered in graffiti. We were too nervous to ride the trains after dark so we always left rome an hour early to be safe.
Also, Litus roma is a big place. We traveled in april and it was empty. A really eerie sort of empty where breakfast was in a huge room and we were the only ones. It might not be bad in the high season because i would guess that there would be other tourists to travel back and forth with. However we stuck out like sore thumbs! The website makes this place look like Cabo, but we did not find it that fun at all! Instead of being a break from the hustle of Rome, it added to our stress level. If you can, stay in the city!
