The only perk to this hostel is the location is close to a metro stop to get to the train stain otherwise we did not enjoy our stay the staff was friendly but the hostel is on the 3rd floor w/no lift kitchen was so tiny you can only fit 1 person in it at a time our room was near the front door so very loud it looked nothing like the pictures on hostel world the room was very muggy and the bathroom wad very dirty overall I would not go back

My stay at secret garden was very comfortable, the staff is very helpful and friendly. The room is clean. The breakfeast can be improved. I would stay there again, and already recommended to my friends that stayed there too.

well equipped kitchen and free pasta served on Tue. and Thur. Nice staff and clean beds. With good location between historical city center and the central Termini station.

Kitchen was next to the rooms. People stayed there till late night and made noise in front of reception. Except that hostel was small but nice.Not really a big breakfeast is included also.

Some of the staff were really nice (especially a girl called Grace), but some were a bit moody. The cleaninglady came to clean our room when we were still in the room which is not okay. The pasta night was fun and the breakfast was decent. Perfect location.

This place was alright. Easy metro connections even if it's in a weird area, nice staffers, free breakfast, cool looking rooms. I guess the downside is the lack of bathrooms and how easily the bathroom floods. Even though I kept the curtain in the shower, water pooled everywhere and didn't move because the room is built on a slant. Ew! At least there were enough plugs and the wifi was good.

The WORST wifi. Basically had to sit next to the router if you wanted to connect at all. Bathroom was disgusting. Shower didn't drain. You had to stand in a few inches of water while you showered. There was one really nice staff member, the others were pretty unhelpful and not very friendly. The pictures on their page are NOT pictures of the hostel. "breakfast" was stale bread and cornflakes. sketchy area but close to metro stop. Bed was okay.

Internet there was awful and couldn't connect at all! I was incommunicable and had to go after wifi in other places... Other than this, it's an ok hostel.

Rooms are cleaning everyday. Simple but good breakfast. We had nice experience, and the staff were helpful.

Мне очень понравилось! Дешево,чисто,удобно. Несколько минут ходьбы от метро,рядом супермаркет с широким ассортиментом(пармезан и с собой прикупила))) Всегда можно приготовить еду на кухне. Жила в девчячей комнате на 6-х. Убирают каждый день(даже постель застилают),просторно,туалет/душ в номере. Есть шкафчики с петельками для замочков(берите с собой),инет,вайфай. До Колизея мин 20 пешком или пара остановок метро. После одного парижского хостела это место просто раем показалось! Не пожалеете!

The location was great especially for the cost. I definitely do rate my hostels on the atmosphere and the meet-abliitly of other travelers from around the word and it didn't seem like the best "hang out spot" for this. But all in all if you were just going to explore Rome this would be a great spot to be.

The pasta dinner was excellent and made it easier to make friends here. Some staff went out of their way to help, but some did not help much. No laundry facilities and the laundry place down the street closes quite early which was an inconvenience. Close to the metro which made up for the far location.

It was a great location and staff were welcoming. Breakfast needs to improve a little bit.
