“Easy transition”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I was in Rome out of necessity (i.e. obtaining a visa at a local embassy) and Frencesco made that experience all the more easier. Both the dorms and the apartment rooms are spotless as is the kitchen (with its free cereal and coffee/tea included). Frencesco's wife and himself are incredibly nice, easy to get along with and greet you by name each day. Although it's out of the city center the metro is no more than 10 minutes away and easy enough to figure out.

That hostel is very very good - its clean , You can cook by yourself or eat in restaurant downstairs , very good when u need something in good price. Francesco - the owner is nice guy who can be good compan to talk. Hostel is situated in very good place - everywhere You can go by foot. From airport You can go by train (8 euro) to Ostiende and later have a 20-30 min walk or 2 station by metro (1,5 Euro) from Piramiede which one is near Ostiense. Great Hostel - i realy recommend it.

We stayed in one bedroom for three persons. We had to carry our bags up to the third floor because it was written on the elevator door - that it is forbidden for guests of hostel to use it. So we had to climb the stairs over and over again during our stay. The beds were very uncomfortable and we only got one blanket upon our arrival and we had to ask for more! The shades on the window would not close all the way. The noise from the street and the sun woke us up every day from 6 A.M. The seeling light was very weak. From three bedroom lamps only one had a cord to plug into the wall. One shower had a moldy wall and the broken door fixed with tape, which would not close. For the both showers for the first 10 minutes you had freezing water . Then it would turn only steaming hot and burned our skin. In middle of the shower it would turn freezing again several times quite unexpectadly. Very stressfull and not relaxing at alI !!! Next to our bedroom was the owners room. He would keep it open and watch us as we passed by him to the toilets with showers down the hall. IT WAS VERY STRANGE BEHAVIOR!!!! Since we had no good night sleep we had to have our afternoon sleep. It was disturbed by the owner every day, by talking on the cell phone, to other guests through his open door. So we would woke up several times by his loud voice.Also when we arrived on the first day we payed in cash full amount and we did not get FISCAL RECEIPT. When we asked for taxi he offered that his wife will take us for 40 euroes to Fiumicino aeroport and also we did not get FISCAL RECEIPT! Conclusion they pay NO TAXES. The Hostel is SO far,far away from the city center and it takes you more then an hour to get by a metro to any sites. The metro station is 15 minutes away from the hostel. It is located at the extreme edge of the city! I would not recommend this hostel to anyone.

If you really want know Rome, this is an excellent oportunity. The hostel its not in downtown but its two blocks from metro S. Paolo (subway) 15 minutes To downtown. You have everything next door, a supermarket, coffee, bars, stores, great gelatos for 2 euros and great pizza for 2 euros. This is the real Rome!
Nice kitchen, clean bedrooms, lockers, internet and good price.

We had a private room so we were in a separate place around the corner 5 to 10 min walk from hostel. The apartment complex was really old and cool. The apartment itself was simply furnished with kitchen and washing machine. There was one lady there also perhaps she was the landlord? She only spoke Italian but was lovely all the same. Our room was very nice with a nice balcony area with table and chairs outside the bathroom. However the shower wasn't great and in the bedroom there is quite a lot of noise from the street below and train going past. I'm a heavy sleeper and it wasn't too much of an issue for me but if you are a light sleeper you will have difficulty sleeping I would imagine. I loved our stay here and the owners of the hostel are lovely (and easy on the eye). They drove us to our apartment and helped us with our bags and then I saw him driving the girl who was in our room before to the airport so she didn't miss her flight! They have free dinner at the hostel occasionally for all the guests which is a lovey touch. It is only a couple stops on the metro to the centre as well and the station is close to the hostel. Great value stay in Rome!

It was small and homely which is good if you like this kind of thing. Breakfast was cornflakes which I skipped every morning. My room had a nice balcony with clothes airers and the room had air conditioning. It was a 3/4 minute walk from the nearest Metro and had lots of shops around it for food and basic essentials.

There has never been a more difficult review than this one. The single room was tiny, the shared bathroom next door had a door that was difficult to push open and get around. The shower cubicle was hard to manoeuvre. Tight spaces everywhere AND the room. No spaces for clothes. Requested hanger...bed unmade on arrival,requested duvet. Normally you pay for a towel 1 Euro. I had one free one then bought two!! Left them on departure. Kitchen verged on unhygienic though mainly due to 'guests'.Coffee pot no handle (same with a large cup)...basic utensils. Some 'rules'. Lift works but hostel users not allowed to use? I never found out what the issues were. Owners businesslike and charming considering how cheap it was. On a budget this place is bearable JUST!! Communal spaces you are exposed to snorers so take earplugs.If you are here to see Rome I suggest you don't make an issue and just sleep and cope and explore what Rome offers in culture and art. The drinking, bars and nightlife here were popular reasons for youngsters at the hostel....but I felt they missed Rome's high points.There is more to life than pasta, ice-cream, and booze...isn't there?

Room Tip: The communal spaces are airy and better value than the single room. I would recommend this hostel fo...
