No major complaints with regard to facilities, except that the shower was cold. The reception isn't staffed 24 hours, as I was up at 5am and the hostel was completely devoid of staff, and gave no indication of how to contact staff should the need arise. There is no restaurant, only a vending machine, and no swimming pool. It's not within walking distance of the airport. If you want a taxi, they'll book a friend to come for a flat fee of £20. There are probably better hostels near the airport.
There are mosquitoes in my room, and paint on the wall is bad.
Fast WiFI. Clean hostel room and bathroom. stayed in 6 person mixed dorm with shared bath. had A/C which was controlled by guest in dorm. Close to train station and airport. 100 meters from shuttle bus that takes you to airport in 5-10min for €1.20/pp.
Very very noisy!! Can t sleep at night. We were unlucky with some teenagers in the hostel.
best location in campiano...easy access to rome as well as easy access to airport
Very quiet, little activity going on, only one staff member spoke proficient English. I was woken up in the morning by Italian cleaner at 7am who shouted Italian at me and didnt stop regardless of whether I understood her or not. Although it was relatively new and clean and they had free wifi which pleased me.
Perfect location for early morning flights out of Ciampino Airport, Rome. Was quiet and very convenient.

The location is great of you don't mind catching the train in and out of Rome. Airconditioning was great and the beds were very comfy. The English speaking staff member (male Italian) was very friendly. But it's not a place for socialising. Mainly people commuting to Rome for the day or staying there the night before a flight.
This hostel is horrendous - far worse than any hostel we have stayed at in South America. Grumpy staff (Didn't acknowledge our 'double room' booking online. Dirty sheets (including hairs from previous people). Disgusting bathrooms (shower heads had broken off so hand held showers were hanging loose with no locks). Good location for an early morning flight.
Everything was great. Staff was nice. Place was clean and nicely decorated. AC was fantastic in that Italian heat! Exceptional hostel.
A good choice for those staying overnight before a flight from Ciampino airport, as the hostel is only about 5 minutes away. Everything was fine, my only warning would be that the bus times for the airport that they have at reception are out dated, so check them yourself at the bus stop.
YOU GUYS CHARGED ME TWICE!!! PLEASE CONTACT email@example.com ASAP!!! The night I arrived at central station inn, the staff failed to find my reservation record, so she just took my money without canceling the record (I didn't realize this would be a problem). About two weeks ago, my bank told me that there is another room fee charged by central station inn. I wrote e-mails to the addresses announced on the hostel's official website, both for reservation and information, but nobody replies!!!

I thought the hostel was very cute and clean. The location was very convenient if you get there by train because it's literally right beside ciampino train station, but it is very hard to get there from the airport. There is not much in the neighborhood except a few restaurants. The rooms are ideal and the facilities are good (AC, TV, Computer), except i had to wait a long time to use the bathroom.It is not the best value for your money, but it is not bad at all.
My only complaints are that there was no place to gather with other people to hang out and there was no light in the kitchen. It was really hard to find, but it was in a great location for the airport!!! It was by far the cleanest hostel I have ever seen.
Only spent one night here but has everything you need. Tidy, nice bathrooms, very convenient and close to Ciampino airport. I arrived late at night and the lady at reception was more than accomodating. I was having trouble with a bank card at the time and she went out of her way to help! Very happy.
