Again I'm not big on hostels but I wanted to check this one out because it had a big party reputation and I felt like a party at the time.
+ Nice bar/pub downstairs which serves food too. Food is pretty good. Staff are decent. Ambiance is a little bit retro but nice enough. Outdoor seating available.
+ Very close to Termini (Rome's central train station). This is a major hub. Also within 30 minutes walk of quite a few attractions like the Piazza Barberini, the Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Fontana Di Trevi, all of which are about 2.5-3 kms from the hostel. Fair amount of bars, shops, restaurants in the neighborhood.
+ Free i-Pads. I think it's free for an hour or something like that.
+ Generally good vibe and atmosphere. I met some nice people from Canada, Australia etc.
What would be wonderful:
+ Cleaner bathrooms / shower area.
+ Better air-conditioning for the summer. I'd like cooler rooms.
+ Perhaps newer beds.
I think it was alright but for some people it might be even better because I prefer private rooms in general.
