The location of this hostel makes up for other problems. Most of the tourist attractions (pantheon, trevi fountain and spanish steps) are within walking distance. Bus stop and metro station are also very close. However, the breakfast can be improved. The biggest problem was the night time noise in the living room (mostly young backpackers and some locals). This can... More

We are finishing 4 days in Rome and La Controra has been a big part of how much we have enjoyed the city. Roma is chaotic, but La Controra is quiet, has a great location, priced very affordable and the staff has been extremely helpful as well (recommendations for things to do, where to eat and drink, calling cabs if...

I'm currently staying here as I write this. I see many hostels on here, but based on price, this is the best out there. Why spend money on a place if you're going to spend most of your time out in the city? I'm in a 2 person room and I got put in room 5. I chose this place... More

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! The staff are so friendly and helpful, they really made the experience great for me. We cooked a lot, hung out together and met travelers from all over.

The hostel was conveniently located only about a block from the underground station which was really nice for getting around to different tourist attractions. The four bedroom mixed dorm we stayed in was nice and clean and provided lockers for us to store our backpacks. Wifi worked well. Our only problem was that there didn't seem to be enough outlets...

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
