After trudging around the strips north of the Rome termini, stargate was a haven above the rather dodgy part of the city... The frontmen who we spoke to were friendly enough, sorting us out at about 11:00pm, arriving dust covered from Firenze!!
The room was pretty much what we came to expect for a 'budget' room in Rome. We had been to all hostels, b&bs and hotels in that district and the stargate was our last, and best (for budget), stop!
It's no ritz but if you are travelling on a tight budget, it's pretty good considering the hefty pricing of Rome.
It did not include breakfast and the only way to keep cool was via the window...looking over a bit of a dodgy section of town.
In summary, decent budget place, not more than 2 star (if that), but good enough for a backpacker hunting for a cheap place to hide out, away from 'party hostels', which seem to populate Rome!!
