“Perfect as a base for sight seeing”
Reviewed February 13, 2011

This place was perfect for what me and my girlfriend wanted, somewhere to put our heads down in between sight seeing! We arrived on a Friday at lunchtime and after some great advice from Ercole we set off to explore Rome. We didn't arrive back till late on Friday night and then up and gone early on Saturday morning. Again we didn't get back till late on Saturday night and up early on Sunday morning. So we didn't spend much time in our room but when we did everything was great: quiet, clean, comfortable bed, great shower etc. Not much more we could ask for and the price was very reasonable. Our money would of been wasted in a luxury hotel!

Fantastic rooms, bright and clean, in a great location in the center of Rome, away from noises. The owner is friendly and nice; he gave us valuable advice on what to see and where to eat. We spent a really relaxing and exciting weekend. I assure you that after a tiring day it's nice to relax in a comfortable bed! Rated 10/10!

Everything was perfect, the room, the location, everything. Great night's sleep. Gelato shop downstairs, pizzerias around the corner and a chic (but pricey) cafe on the square to chill out at and people watch. This is certainly the best ''hostel'' I've stayed in. Thank you for a truely memorable stay in Rome.
P.S. I'm surprised that so far nobody has mentioned Ercole is just a little bit dishy.

Good location (between rail station and Coliseum), very clean, the guys help you with information and hints about the city, the room has TV, air conditioning, good bathroom, free wifi. I'd stay there again ! Pay only with cash.

We have spent few days in Blue Hostel in September 2010 and would recommend the place to everyone who expect the Rome apartment with traditional character and modern chic within reasonable price. The rooms are clean and tastefully refurbished and decorated with excellently preserved traditional ceilings. The area is great, close to everything that Rome can offer within nice walking distance. The best for those who like to escape from mass tourism and enjoy the real atmosphere of the city. Follow Ercole's advices and you will enjoy your stay in Rome! Well done Ercole! Good luck and thanks for help. We look forward to see Rome and Blue Hostel soon. Iza & Tad
