Water for shower was only warm.


Nice hotel close to the station but a bit of a long walk from the attractions. It is clean and has everything you need. Limon in the reception was really helpful telling us about the city, busses etc.


Excellent place to stay in Rome. It is very close to the Termini Station, where the metro lines cross each other and where's the main stop of the buses. It's clean, air condition works fine, the staff is very helpful and kind. We would recommend it for every couple going to Rome. Although you have to know that in fact it isn't a hostel, because it doesn't have any common facilities like kitchen or common room, and it's rather a hotel in the price of a hostel.


The stay was very pleasant and the staff were helpful. But, the staff charged us an additional 30 Euros as "tax for the local government" which was never mentioned in the invoice. If this is genuine, they should make sure that it shows up on the initial invoice when we book online. Other than this, it is a compact place that is definitely recommended as an economic option.


Very minimalistic room. Just a bed a chair, and a couple lights. You get what you pay for. The a/c was $$.


This hostel was excellent, amazing location, very clean rooms, safe in the room was incredebly convenient and at no extra cost. The only downside was there was no fridge in the room, which would be pretty much the only addition to the place I would make. As well sometimes the shower temperature would be inconsistent and the hot water wouldn't really be working, but that would just be the area and not the hostels fault. Exveent stay all together, definitely recommended.

Good place to stay and well located. Staff were very helpful and always asking that we were comfortable. Clean and tidy, would recommend to others


Excellent location, very close to the train station. Basically what we expected for Rome, as the price is much higher than other cities. The electric sockets in the rooms only had 1 working socket, everything else was broken. No atmosphere whatsoever, basically impossible to meet people. However it does have AC.


Casa di Penelope is a good value for money - great location, just few minutes walk to Termini, very quiet and clean, with great staff at the reception that are ready to help you with anything.


Place was good value for money, giod facilities and location to Termini train station.


Very good value and the hostels is really good. all staffs are 100%.


pros: Excellent location. Friendly staff. Good room(s). cons: we got just a tiny amout of soap, some reconditioning shoud be necessary on room(s), and removing the blight from the bathroom corners. I can recomend this hostel.
