One of a kind experience and after the nightmare I had in France, I couldn’t have been happier. Lovely staff, lovely rooms, and all around wonderful atmosphere. Definitely stay here!! Perfect for groups and solo travelers, I’d like to come back with my friends.

First of all, the staff is amazing. You are greeted with a warm smile as soon as you walk in! Sarah and Florence were extremely helpful, and gave me great advice on local bookings for the sights and also great food recommendations :) The rooms are small and cozy, very clean, and the AC works well. No bunk beds are a plus! Breakfast is small but the coffee is good and strong. This is a great place for a solo female traveler, but not a party hostel by any means. The Terrace was nice and we sat out there at night to enjoy some wine and conversation :) I would highly recommend!!!! Thank you Sarah and Florence. I’ll be back!

Great experience! The place was pleasantly clean and very close to the Termini station, which was super helpful for transportation. The neighborhood itself was just alright, but I never felt unsafe. Towels are available for rent at a reasonable price; small lockers are in each room, and locks are available on request. Friendly and helpful staff as well. I would stay here again if I ever come back to Rome!

I love everything about this hostel, first it has a very convenient location next to Roma Termini since i had a lot of train trips planned. They’re affordable compared to hotels since i was staying for a whole week it was well worth the stay. Last but not least and the most important element is the staff, they were extremely friendly especially Sara. She’s very sweet and nice to chat with, she made my stay that much more enjoyable. I never stayed in a hostel before and it was weird for me staying in a room with strangers. I stayed there for 7 nights and I met ten different girls from all over the world. Few things to keep in mind, you need to go with an open mind and heart, not everyone has the same plan so sleeping and waking up at different hours will be a regular practice, make sure you bring a sleeping mask to help you fall asleep if you can’t do that with the lights on. The other thing is some will be courteous and greet you, some will chat with you lightly, some will be so friendly you will end up sharing pictures and stories about how your day went and some wont even recognize your presence; so please take it all with an open heart. The place has a very lovely terrace where i spent most of my free time when i had any. The wifi worked perfectly but not at the terrace. And they have Netflix which was a plus.

This is definitely a great place to stay in Roma! The staff is really nice and helpful (good food recommandation :)) The hostel is small so it’s really quiet and cosy, it’s also clean. The free breakfast is small but it was enough for us. We had a really nice stay and I surely recommend it :)
