The staff not that good, and no nice common area. The location's not bad (close to Termnini, and some nice cafes around). The rooms are small and cozy, no crowd around. Quiet at night.


The actual name of the hostel is hotel des artistes and is more like a hotel than a hostel. I stayed in a four person room and the beds and sheets were so clean and maid service made the beds everyday. The bathrooms were also cleaned everyday. It's a five minute walk from the Castro Pretoria metro station so location was perfect. The only negatives were that you have to pay 2€ for wifi for 24 hour use and make sure to bring your own towel or else buy one for 3.50€. Overall a great place to stay!

Very clean, neat and nice. The best upon all the hostels of my trip, just one recommendation; it will be perfect if you had wifi al over the hotel not just on the tiny room of the fifth floor. And you can improve the cafeteria, it will be awesome if you sell food for your guests in the morning. Thank you!


We booked a double room but ended in a dorm with 3 other people... Not very funny for a Saint-Valentine evening, knowing that we had to work the morning after. Our experience was really bad, this was not what we booked - even if we got an email saying that the booking's confirmation for a double was made and ok. Be careful with this place because they also tried to make us pay more than expected for the city's taxes.

Both had a great stay in Rome


Would stay again, very happy with a private double room. Very comfortable.


Very nice room, the private room doesnt look like a hostel, look more like a good hotel. The reception guy isn't very friendily. A little expensive and the reception is in another place.


Its very near from the metro station and the main terminal. The staff is very kind and helpfull, when you arrives, they give you all the maps you need and the location of differents markets of the zone. They speak many languages The atmosphere is great and you make lots of friends.


It is a good place to stay. Staff are nice, and good at English. But the internet is not good.
