“Mediocre hostel. Bad service.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Location is good. Rooms are old but fairly clean. Interior old and broken. Service is bad. No information, no smile. Not even a hello or goodbye. Not to far from the main bus station. Expensive for what you get. Not recommended at all.

You take the airport bus to the very last stop (the mall with the big sign that says Shopping Estacao), walk into that mall entrance, take a right to exit toward the train exhibit/museum, you see the street with black tubes where people wait for the bus, cross the street toward the park, and the hostel is right there on the corner of the park closest to where you got off the airport bus.
Before arriving, I read reviews here about unfriendly staff members. The six different front desk employees I met were quite kind & helpful. Even the cleaning staff and the woman in charge of breakfast seem to be happy, friendly people who greet you rather positively.
The room was made up each of the 3 days I stayed there. Sheets & blankets were folded, bathroom was tidied up, etc.
My single room had a twin bed next to the wall and also a set of twin bunk beds. There wasn’t a towel in the room--although as it states behind the front desk, you can pay 4 reais to borrow one.
I’m not freaking out about two mosquito bites I got while there even though it was in the cold, rainy season. My only complaint would be that the towel didn’t dry since the air was always moist. I probably could’ve paid again to rent a dry one if I had really wanted to.
When I return to Curitiba, I’ll look into staying here again. The location is great. The mall has plenty of good eating places (not just fast food) and you can catch/exit the sightseeing tourist bus right there in front of the train museum. They can't make it any easier!

Room Tip: If you need one, rent a towel upon check-in.

Location is one of the main assets of this hostel. It is close to the bus and train terminals, shopping center, and the city center. The hostel’s entrance is facing a nice park. Everything can be reached on foot. The shopping center has a large food core.
The hostel is located in an old building. It is quite large, certainly much larger than it appears from the street. The upper floors are older but well maintained and clean. My private room was on top floor facing the park and the main street. It was quiet just like the rest of the hostel. It was quite rustic but clean. The bed was comfortable. Linen was clean and in good condition. I arrived in low season and in the winter. It was very cold and I needed two blankets to keep me warm at night. There was no heat. The room had two single beds, night stand, armoire, and small table with chair. There were two windows opening onto a city square. There was one shared shower room with WC and two sinks outside this shower room. The floor had four rooms. It was clean and it had hot water (electric water heater).
There was a large dining room where the breakfast was served. TV room lounge on the second and first floor. The kitchen I found very small for the size of the hostel. It was not well equipped either. It would be a challenge to use it in high season. There was a large courtyard with parking and more rooms or suited opening onto it.
The Wi-Fi was OK and only available in the first and second floor lounges. Breakfast was exceptionally nice with a variety of choices. It was certainly well above the average of a “hostel breakfast”. Both were included in the room rate. This hostel is more like a hotel and not very good place to meet other travelers.
I only had experience with two staff members and both were very nice hospitable and helpful. Overall this was an older and very basic hostel at very good value. I would recommend it.

Rome Hostel is very well located. It's near to bus lines, and a train station. It's also close one of the stopping points of the tourism bus line, which is great. The hostel is very clean, the room is very good, the bathroom is normal, but nothing to worry about. The breakfast is very good, with good variety of juices, breads, hams and cheeses. The bad side about my stay is that I didn't make friends, no even the hostel staff were very social. But, anyway, the hostel is very good, the price is right, it's well located. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

The Rome hostel is well located near the train station and major bus lines, but only that the good in it.
The hostel is old, the room with many mosquitos and mold smells. The manager (Rafael) incredibly rude.

Room Tip: Look out to another hostel !!!!!

Hostel Roma is in a very good location, near a bus stop, a shopping and the city centre. The breakfast is fine, but the rooms are small and badly ventilated. The bad side of the hostel is the staff. They don't help you and treat you very bad. Unfortunately there is no many hostels in Curitiba...
