“Way too far from the main attractions in Rome”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2009

This hostel is ok. It is clean, and the morning staff are ok.
There is this african guy (night shift) who is very rude. He did not want to help me, he said he was working all day and that he was tired, he screamed at me. VERY RUDE! The other two ladies were rude too. Be careful, don't stay there. It is so far from Rome ( main attractions) It will take you about 1:15 minutes to get there from Central Train Station in Rome. It is right next to the beach, and that beach is dirty. It's ghetto.

Large, clean hostel. Too far out of Rome, a bus and a train ride to the city, with one line change as well. SEveral attendants on desk could not speak english which made it hard to communicate. Breakfast room locked out of hours, so impossible to even make a cup of tea. Quiet and good price. Good views from windows, and large rooms, but distance was too big a problem.

Litus Roma Hostel is truly the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Newly renovated, it's spotlessly clean and includes daily maid service. Rooms have views of the sea. It's a very comfortable place with a fun and friendly staff. Free internet and breakfast included. An easy train ride into central Rome makes it possible to visit sights all day and get back to watch the sunset on the Mediterranean and relax!

  • Liked — cleanliness spaciousness friendly atmosphere
  • Disliked — like most of Rome immediate surrounding neighborhood has lots of grafitti
  • Tips/Secrets — if taking bus to hostel from Lido di Ostia train station...exit at 5th stop go to left as you exit bus and turn left at the very first street...it's at the end of the block
