Coconuts is a nice, pretty safe hostel for lone female travellers (and groups! I met a lot of girls travelling together there, but about 50% of us seemed to be staying alone). In my room there were two bunk beds and two singles - lone travellers are usually given a single which is nice. There's really big lockers and a reasonably-sized bathroom in there, too. The lock was very stiff in the bathroom and resulted in me and a couple of other girls getting stuck a couple of times. So just be careful with that!
You really need to know when you're going to arrive so the owner can let you in and give you keys to the hostel and lift - there are quite a few guys outside who like to look at and cat-call you, which is easy to deal with but not so nice if you were coming back alone at night. My bed was right next to the window onto the main street, and the hostel (in May...) was very humid so unfortunately the window had to be kept open so if you're not good with noisy places this hostel might be unsuitable for you. At night you can hear a few drunks, lots of cars, trains, station noise... but the location is so convenient if you can put up with that! Actually I walked to most of the places I wanted to go - so central attractions are very accessible by foot. And of course that makes a trip cheap even cheaper - this hostel is really worth the price!
There's also a little kitchen with a fridge, some utensils and dishes and a microwave, kettle, etc... so it's easy to go and buy food from the Conad supermarket in Termini and to bring it back. There's only a tiny social area but the wi-fi isn't bad. Also a lot of people leave behind guidebooks (especially in Korean!) so you can find some reading material if you've come back earlier. As for the curfew published on a few sites - this is not enforced. You can come and go as you please.
