The good thing was definitely the location, really close to Termini station, and the fact that it's a new place so things look clean. But other than that, I arrived and found out that they overbooked and I had to stay in a hostel next door. Wouldn't be a problem, but I had to change my room in the morning, which meant unnecessary packing and unpacking. I had problems accessing the Wifi in both hostels, no hot water at times in both of them. I also found Casa di Penelope very noisy at night - the outside gate, which is in use all the time, was really keeping me awake. The hostel also didn't have the atmosphere. Usually there is some common room, a kitchen or something, where people hang out. This place looks like an office in a residential building and you feel like is someone's flat. Sorry to say, but I also didn't find the staff too friendly and I didn't feel welcomed at all.

Design... Comfort... Innovation... Location... Vision...every room is an open space designed to be a synthesis that gives a broad liberty of expression to our guests embraced by the milky white of our industrial resin floor. Hands... Mouth... Ears... Nose... Eyes... every room is characterized and become a unique space defined by the details that live within it: original works of art made of Bakelite and designed by Giovanni Lamorgese in every bedroom, vintage objects shown in the hall.
