Exceptionally clean, friendly and approachable staff as well as a great relaxed atmosphere! Reasonably priced for great service and amenities. Close to transport to city centre and lovely location on the third floor.

I booked this hostel months in advance. La Controra charged my credit card and then proceeded to "bait and switch" (that is, they take your money, apologise that the hostel is full and then say that they'll make alternative arrangements for you) These alternative arrangements will be for places that are half the price you pay for La Controra, in...

Good location! very friendly staff, clean and quiet. Stayed at a three dorm and everything was great. Would just recommend to bring a towel for the bathroom floor because that was not provided and it can get pretty wet.

I stayed with a friend and we managed to book a double room with an en suite. The hostel is what you pay for but you get a great location in the centre of Rome. The staff are extremely helpful. Would definitely book again.

A great location, clean rooms and bathrooms, great relaxing space. This was one of the best hostels of my trip. The staff was great as well. It was very quiet and the location was central and a great walking distance from many interesting things to see!

One of the nicest places I stayed in on my travels. The wifi was good, the bathroom was cleaned daily and kept quite nice anyway - depends on your flatmates but we were fine! Breakfast was luxurious compared to others with toast, cereal, tea/coffee to help yourself to. Common room with dining table, bean bags, and tv. Genuinely great stay!... More

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.
