“greatest service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2009

i had a great stay at funny palace. eventhough you are checked in at the laundromat next door, this is actually the best service i have ever experienced at a hostel - that they give you a map and all the information necessary for your whole stay was very apreiciated. but it was also a nice and clean.

The jokes of the staff get a little tedious... but really friendly and helpful so very impressed overall. The rooms are modern and spacious + spotlessly clean.

I stayed here with my wife and two young children. Families can feel a bit out of place in hostels but we were made to feel amazingly welcome. The owner, Marbri, is a very friendly and helpful guy. More than six months later my daughter still talks about "Marbri-bello!" We had a triple room with an ensuite which was a lovely hotel room, really, not a hostel room! The hostel/hotel is superbly located- very easy walk to Termini station, but still quiet. There are cheap places to eat nearby and it's really easy to get around and see Rome's sights. Marbri gave us superb advice on how to make the most of our time. Staying here really helped us to have a fantastic time in Rome, I can't recommend it highly enough!

After navigating from the station to the 'hostel' (not far away from it at all) we were slightly confused as we were directed into a laundrette and internet cafe. Our booking was not when we booked for (completely our fault) so we actually ended up not staying there. We never made it to the bedroom so no comment can be made about them or any other facilities the 'hostel' had to offer apart from the laundry and computers which looked great!

The 'office' is in the laundromat downstairs. The rooms are upstairs. Three bedrooms, 8 people, sharing one bath was tough in the morning. Set up like a small apartment with a kitchen in the front and 3 bedrooms behind. Possible to cook, but your in Rome so eat out.

I felt like the neighborhood around the hostel was safe and friendly. Other directions from the termini were not as inviting.

Easy to recommend.

My wife and I booked a double en suite and we are very happy with our choice! It is a five minute walk to Rome Termini. For 10 euros they'll do two loads of laundry for you. We got a free bottle of wine when we showed up. Payment was due in advance. Security of the building we stayed in was TOP NOTCH. The room was beautiful and in a beautiful, secure building. I would certainly stay there again.
Americans be warned, though. Air conditioning in Europe is rare. You must learn to sleep with the windows open and deal with street noise. A/C might be out of order, "off until June," or not there at all. You just have to get used to it. I would try it at home first to help get used to it.
Laundromat/Internet cafe on ground floor.
