Very nice hostel, in a good location for good money. We were placed in a different location to that listed, and there was some confusion in getting our rooms. The staff tried to charge us more by claiming they had never received a deposit from hostelworld and shouted at me when we tried to show proof of payment. They backed down after two days of negotiations, admitting they had received a deposit, then pulled the same trick on another group of students. Be prepared to prove your payment...

In fact we didnt stay at Blackberry house due to some technical problems. Ths they sent us to another place nearby, called Icarus Inn. It was nice decent place, close to the metro station.
Nice hostel about 15 minutes walk from the Colosseum, not actually at the advertised address but a few doors up. Room was spacious and clean but 3 rooms shared a single bathroom which proved difficult. At night there was a lot of road noise so anyone not used to noise may have trouble sleeping. Breakfast consisted of a chocolate filled croissant each but we only received this on one of the mornings. Barbara the owner was very pleasant and gave us tips on where to go as well as good restaurants!
