Roman Holidays Hostel
Ranked #82 of 1,170 Specialty Lodging in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 25, 2013

It's a small hostel, the staff could be better, but the rooms are ok and the prices are good. The location is excellent, close to Termini Station, the most important in Rome. It's easy to get most of the tourists places from there.

Stayed: April 2013

Reviewed October 4, 2013

The hostel is located about 5 minutes walk from the main train station (Termini). The shuttle buses to the airports (Fiumicino or Ciampino) are also located nearby so it's really convenient. There are quite a few restaurants in the area so you won't really go hungry

We booked a twin ensuite which was quite spacious. Rooms and the hotel in general was clean and presentable. It is part of an apartment block so there's no signs apart from a tag on the doorbell. Lookout for the street number.

Breakfast was a pre-packed croissant and your choice of coffee or tea. It's not the best but it's something. There's also a note saying one croissant per person but there was none left when we woke up late one day. There's an inexpensive cafe with more decent coffee and pastry just next door.

PROS:
- Location. 5 mins walk to train station & metro. 4 mins walk to shuttle buses for airport
- Decent room size. Decent bathroom size.
- Cleanliness.
- Strong WiFi.
- Air-con
- Common room with free use of Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii.
- Along major street so it's relatively safe to walk at night.

CONS:
- Flat pillows.

Room Tip: - We had a room that was at the rear of the building. Wasn't noisy at all even with windows open...

bought ([--]) croissant for a breakfast, many strange rules (kitchen and rooms closed between 10:30am and 2pm.), not so social stuff, small kitchen, mold in the bathroom and quite high price.

Even if the localisation is ok (near to Termini) and the room was clean, I would not recommend this hostel.
