It was an ok hostel. Pros: close to main train station (20 min walk) or 2 min walk from metro stop; breakfast included with kitchen; lockers; ensuite. Cons: not much atmosphere, no real common room, just table chairs used for breakfast in narrow hall/room; I had a very uncomfortable bed (for hostel standards); wifi didn't really work in room (although I was in furthest bed from reception so maybe others worked) Overall it's an ok hostel. It does the job. Nothing amazing but not awful.
We enjoyed our stay. The location is convenient. Walking distance to the Coliseum and right next to the metro to get everywhere else. They had a free pasta night which was fantastic and the breakfast was good too!
Importance !!!! I lose An iPad on the hostel , although I have responsibility , The safety of this hostel should be considered . You can just use the key to lock your room , if your roommate do not lock the door , all people can get in . Since there is not enough locker, you can imagine the safety !! Therefore, not enough sockets , only two for 6 peoples . The bed is uncomfortable and dirty , I got an itch on my back all night ! Some staff is nice and helpful , but the "manager " not

The bed number 5 of the female room was kinda broken. It wasnt confortable, but i changed for the other days i stood there. I dont know if they fixed it, but i think its not safe for both girls (it was a bunk and my bed was the top one).
on the plus side the Ciak was close to everything and the staff helpful. Unfortunately six of us shared a very small, cramped bathroom that had no ventilation at all, was mildewy and stank, and had such a small inadequate shower that the floor and toilet was wet all the time. room was hot and stuffy but couldn't open the only window (no screen) because of the mosquitos.
Ciak is located near the Colisseum, 10 minutes walking and you'll be there. There are also a subway station (Manzoni) nearby so it easy to go around Rome. The kitchen is small, but it's enough for all guests. I took a 6-people shared room with private bathroom and it was ok. The problems were the mosquitos and the warm temperatures in this period of the year in Rome.
Location was good and staff helpful. The shared bathroom was horrible. The lack of any ventilation caused it to be moldy and smelly. In addition, it was so small it was impossible to shower without getting the entire room wet. Would not stay here again only because of lack of adequate bathroom facilities.
Internet is bad in the secret garden and the location is a bit odd but close to the subway. The room itself was very clean and quite nice with a balcony.
Strongly recommend you to stay in Cyak hostel.. very small hostel but pretty good. Just be aware pf the city tax: plus 3.50 per person per night... quite high value but not their fault o believe. Great location and staff :)
