The coliseum rooms has been by far the best accommodation we've stayed in through out our Italy travels. The host was extremely friendly and helpful, giving us great suggestions on how to travel around Rome and where to eat out. The hostel is also with close distance to the metro and bus stops which were incredibly handy. Would definitely reccomend to others and would return again.
There was no one to let us in because he either got the date wrong, got the time wrong or forgot. He came promptly when we phoned him, but that was hard to do in a foreign country. They had a kitchen to eat in and store cold food, but no cooking. No AC, just a fan. Rooms were large. The bathrooms weren't great, either leaky or slightly moldy. Wifi was very good. Excellent location, Easy to walk to the Coliseum and very close to bus stops and Metro stations.
Really helpful owner with some amazing suggestions that really made Rome amazing for us. It's in a good location and walking distance to the main attractions. Restaurant advice was really great and room was spacious. Would highly recommend.
Coliseum Rooms is an awesome place to stay. During a backpacking trip, we chose Coliseum Rooms to get a little fancier in Rome and to take a break from traditional hostels. Coliseum Rooms provided exactly that and more. Extremely friendly and helpful host who gave great recommendations for our stay. The location is great, a short walk from the main ruins and right off the metro. A very authentic, clean, quiet and comfortable place to stay in Rome.
Gianluca, manager of this hostel, was a friendly, helpful and welcoming host. He gave very useful tips for us at the beginning after we arrived the hostel about where to go and the good place to eat. His tips were amazing, we found much good food which made our trip in Rome great. The lady who helped tidying up our rooms was also helpful and friendly, I appreciate staff here a lot. The hostel locates well, clean and tidy, facilities work well. Would recommend it to travelers. Jay from HK.

We LOVED our time staying here! Pirrko, the lady who welcomes you to the bed and breakfast and makes the beds everyday, was the best and made our stay in Rome AMAZING! She showed us all the places to go around Rome and how to get there. She also took us out to dinner multiple times to two delicious restaurants nearby. The place was clean and very close to the metro, which made is very easy to get around. It was also walking distance from a lot of places we wanted to see. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
AWESOME place! The woman who greeted us, Pirrko, was literally the coolest woman I have ever met. She, along with the host, were very helpful with recommendations for everything around the city! The place was very clean and cozy and our beds were made for us daily. Very easy to access the city from the location. Free breakfast!! Very safe!
Gianluca was a fantastic host who made us feel very welcome. He offered us great local tips for Rome tailoring his advise for our preferences. It was like having a personal tour guide. We have travelled extensively and this ranks within the top 10 of places we have stayed whilst keeping the budget low. Would advise anyone looking to stay within walking distances of central Rome to stay here.
We had a lovely 7 nights and the weather was gorgeous! First time in Rome, Coliseum Rooms is a good choice and we recommend it! Very good price, nice coffee and croissant in a cafe every morning and if you prefer to take the metro, the closest stop is just a minute walk away. Rooms are also lovely and spacious. Many thanks to Pirkko and Gianluca! All the best, Pinja & James from UK
