This is my 3th time in this Hostel. The location is amazing, only 200 meters from the oldest and ranks first among the five Papal Basilicas of the world and the four Major Basilicas of Rome (all of which are also Papal basilicas), and if you walk 10 more minutes you get at the Colosseo. The Area is quite and nice. Few cheap Restaurants and Pub around. The Hostel is Clean and The Staff takes care of you. Domenico and Fabio give you all the Best suggestion to enjoy your Stay in Rome

The best hostel I've stayed in! Cannot fault. Fabio and Domenico were so friendly and helpful. Great location and facilities plus good place to meet people due to common areas being used so much :) Perfect
It was clean and good location, easy to go for other places. The owner was very helpful and make you feel like at home,it's highly recommended and will come back again.
Fabio is an excellent host and he''ll give you invaluable tips to explore the best of Rome! Also the complimentary strawberry wine was a cherry on top of the cake!

very warm and friendly hosts. who make a lot of effort to get guests together in the evenings.
My experience at the hostel was great! Got to meet some fantastic friends here, Fabio and Domenico make the place feels like home and they are so helpful ! The location is really good! Got some delicious pasta for dinner and also got a pizza night !
Nice location. Just a 5 minutes walk from metro.. So you can go to all attraction easily. Owner were very helpful. A bit expensive but then you are in room not in tulum!
My favourite hostel of my trip so far. Fabio and Domenico were excellent hosts, and it was a great place to meet and hang out with people. They cook up a free pasta dinner most nights, and the guys even worked around my ridiculous number of food intolerances. They even brought me treats back from supermarket trips. Not far from a metro station and a reasonable walk to all the major attractions.
I'm not entirely sure why this hostel gets the great reviews it gets. Yes, Fabio is a super friendly, great host and his home cooked pasta was great! Atmosphere is also great. But wow, the facilities are some of the worst I've encountered on my many travels. Nothing works real well, the rooms are SUPER cramped, and everything seems just a little dirty. There are signs EVERYWHERE just randomly taped on doors and walls about things that cost extra and all the things you CAN'T do. Very off-putting.
I really enjoyed my stay here! Fabio is welcoming and helpful (I changed my booking a few times, no issues) and gives a lot of great advice about things to do (and not do) in Rome. He also is pretty strict about quiet time (which I loved) which makes it easy to sleep (as he says, party outside, sleep inside). This place is a small, yet welcoming hostel, and Fabio really goes out of his way to make his place traveler friendly (example, he changes money at the going rate. Awesome!). Stay here!
This is my second time in this Hostel in 20 days. you a get a map on arrival from Fabio and Domenico where they explain you a lot of staff about Rome. i been already in Rome 2 years ago but this time i discovered more places thanks to them. you get advice where to eat and how to skip the line for the museum and the area you need to avoid. The breakfast include Cereals, eggs, butter yoghurt milk bread the and coffee. The rooms are new, and clean. very clean the bathrooms

Highly recommend. Fabio is the best host we stayed with over the course of our trip and we stayed at 10 different hostels. Location is a bit out of the way (15 min walk to coliseum) but worth it to have this sort of hospitality
Dreaming Rome was much more than I expected; I felt right at home. Fabio made my stay welcoming and easy-going, and I would say everyone at that hostel would pretty much agree. I would definitely be coming back for additional stay and for some that tasty pasta that Fabio made. He really knows how to bring people to together. Though my stay was short and sweet, I can say that my time there was awesome and just everything more. It was memorable.
An incredible hostel. Fabio is so welcoming from the minute you arrive and is willing to help with anything. Also, the hostel provides both breakfast and dinner and has a great social atmosphere. I had an amazing stay and met a lot of great people. I will definitely be returning if I'm in Rome again.
Fabio was a terrific and accomodating host! Great facilities, cozy family atmosphere. He made dinner for everyone 2 of the 3 nights we stayed- and it worked out very well. Definitely would recommend to any travelers young or old, it's a fun environment while being respectful.
Fabbio was a great host, he was very helpful with directions and recommending things to do in the area. He also went above and beyond by cooking us pasta dinners.
Fabio is the perfect example of what a host should be. He is incredibly helpful, and genuinely sweet when it comes to all of his guests. The hostel itself is situated in an apartment complex just 10 minutes walk from S. Giovanni Metro Station. This is perfect because you can get anywhere in the city from here. The Colosseum is only 20 minutes walk from the hostel. The facilities were well maintained and he even has fans for the guests in the summer. Thank you so much Fabio, you're great!!
The hostel and the owners are amazing and this is definitely the best hostel i have been in. This is technically an apartment converted into a hostel but it has all the facilities you would need in a hostel, icluding very fast wifi and free printouts!! The only disadvantage, and it was a big one when i was there, is that they do not have ACs and it was 40 degrees outside when we were there. It was too hot for my friends to stay there and they had to book another hostel paying double the money...
Staying here was great and I had a really good experience in Rome. The standout things for me were the excellent staff (shoutout to Fabio) and that the facilities were extremely clean and safe. Thanks for the awesome hospitality!
