I stayed in 3 different rooms (4 beds girls dorm and shared bathroom, private with 3 beds and included bathroom) during my stay so I can say that the rooms and shared bathrooms are quite clean.
Most staff members that I encountered were very nice and helpful, suggesting us places to eat and helping us solve any issue, etc.
The breakfast could be a bit better but you get great italian coffee with it!

All in all, a very good hostel !

The Hostel is very well organized , very close to the Metro B, (3 minutes on foot) .
The restaurant is small but cheap and the food is very good , expecially Pasta cacio e Pepe and Amatriciana. People is nice and smart I suggest you for your holiday in Rome.

The hostel is very simple and minimal, but not to the extent you feel anything has been left out. It has all you need for a good stay, and is always clean but if you're looking for a more homely hostel then this isn't for you - perhaps a little sterile.

We stayed in a 4 bed room, but for the majority of the trip it was only occupied by me and a friend which made a nice change from some of the bigger dorms.

It is close to the metro station, around 5 mins by foot (easy to reach both Termini and major attractions) and easy to find (those who say it's hard to find haven't looked on the map at all before going there).

Really nice center with nice amenities, the location isn't central but close to a metro stop so it was easy to get to all the sights. The breakfast that is included is really great, but the staff weren't always as friendly or helpful as most hostels.

Everything was clean. Staff was always busy or on the phone with whomever. Not a hostel to chat or meet other travelers... many were from around Rome, families, or friends traveling who want to be left alone. I guess their website did say quiet but I didn't realize it was living at home again ie leave your keys at the desk when leaving and other guests get stopped when going to meet group in anOther part of the building. Breakfast was juice, bread, croissants and coffee. Metro close. Shop in Vatican city or barberrina as prices are lower. Buy a day, 2day, or three day pass better deal which are available a machines in the station. Trains readily available at termini station. From fco airport, take a train, payment separate from day pass and any other train ticket to termini the main station then take the blue Cornella line to bologna then follow directions from hostel page from there.

We reached to this place right from our Hilton Hotel stay at Paris so we were pretty much looking for the "cheap" aspect than anything else. Pleasantly, the place was very nice and tidy. The rooms all seemed freshly painted and well-kept. While the bathroom was on the furthest corner of the corridor, it was spotless. The shower door, though, was not closing properly (a common problem in most hostels using plastic retractable doors). Breakfast was included and was good (not excellent). Its a little far from the metro station (seemed little farther since we had heavy luggage!). Overall, a very very nice place and no complaints whatsoever!!

Room Tip: rooms on the right side of the corridor should be cooler if you plan to take an afternoon nap!

I stayed here for 3 nights and at £20 a night you really can't complain. I had a 4 room dorm and it was very very big. The maids were very efficient and the bathrooms were always excellently clean. The staff are also helpful. It is a great location. Great transport links and nice cafe at the end of the road which is great for an early morning boost.
