“Nice hospitality and very clean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

My husband and I booked a private room and were so please with how clean the room was! Eric was very helpful and even upgraded our room. The added complimentary bottle of wine was nice too! The location is convenient to the Termini station. I definitely recommend this place!

Friendly staff, clean rooms and washrooms, and free computers/wifi. Definitely one of the best hostels I have been to so far. Only downside is no big space to meet other travellers. A big plus was that it is a 5 minute walk from Roma Termini, which means it is very easy to access all major tourist sites by metro.

I was skeptical to stay here due to the name of this place. We were originally booked into a shared room with two other people, however we did not want to share a room. We called two days before we arrived and the manager had no private rooms available. He offered us a room inside his mother's house. It was great!! We had out own living room, bedroom, and bathroom. We had privacy. The lady staying on the other side of the house was really sweet. The owner also gave us a bottle of wine to welcome us to Italy. It was great. I would stay here again!

Note: I accidentally clicked swimming pool below. The place does not have one.

We arrived at funny palace to a warm welcome, bottle of wine and some great recommendations as to what to do in our few days in Rome. The room was clean and the bathroom was excellent with a great shower (we booked a deluxe double). Location was good but traffic noise from the road below was bad and combined with an uncomfortable bed didn't make for a good night's sleep.
The service we received from the Funny Palace was great and far better than that you receive in other establishments in Rome.

we've stayed for 3 nights. The staff were really friendly. Even helped us to make plan to get the best of rome throughtout our stay. Room was fabulous! Even get discount to a nearby indian restaurant, with great food and quite cheap too! Near termini, which is good if you're planning to take public transport to go anywhere.

we stayed 3 days at this hostel. It was fabulous!! We were upgraded without asking for it, Free bottle of wine each day. The breakfast was just enough and good. The internet was free not only during our stay but when we returned to pick up a bag that they stored for us for free for 10 days while on a cruise! My 11 year old daughter said that when we returned to Rome we could not stay anywhere else!!! Totally clean and nice sheets on the very comfortable bed. VERY IMPRESSED WITH THIS AMAZING GEM OF A PLACE. Will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: For just a little more get a private room. soooo worth it!

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The owner and staffs were so friendly, the room and bathrooms so cleaned, tidy and warm. Close to the main station in Rome and the owner showed us how to go to the best places in the city. Definitely recommend this hostel!
