Wonderful people. Fabio was so helpful when my luggage was lost by the airline. They really care about their guests.
Brilliant hostel with the fantastic brothers. Really helpful and always willing to give advice. The location of the hostel is great. Although it's a bit out from the centre, it's only a 20 minute walk to the Colosseum and the area has a local feel to it. We definitely recommend this hostel and hope to stay there again sometime in the future! Vinny & Joy Ireland
I stayed here with a friend just last week, and what a wonderful place this was! Seriously, this is one hostel stay that CANNOT be missed. Nowhere else will you find such friendly, respectful, diligent and accommodating staff. They are always eager to help. The family that owns this puts their heart and soul in this place, and it shows. My friend and I adored our time here. Dreaming Rome and especially its wonderful staff will always hold a special place in out hearts. Until next time!
The hostel is small but nice, the brothers are fantastic, very enthusiastic and helpful. My first night the I asked for a suggestion for some where to have dinner they recommended 2 places and offered to drive me, instead their mother offered to cook me some pasta and it was great. I was greeted warmly and with a welcome drink as well as map and information about how to get to some main sites. One night we crammed 7 people into Fabio's Fiat and he dropped us at a restaurant for dinner.
Fantastico !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Dome and Fabio for everything !! They made us dinner some nights and Fabio took us out in Rome once funnest night of my life .. Hostel fantastic, worth the extra cost dont skimp out, atnosphere trumps all and these guys provide it .. Will come again you will see .... (Tip if you get hungry, nice pizza place on the corner 15s from hostel.. Pay like 1.5eur a slice ..)
This was the best hostel I stayed at during my one month European vacation. The two brothers are amazing people and great hosts with a wealth of great advice. Two thumbs up!
This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The owners, Fabio and Domenico, make you feel so at home, that you even forget that you are in a hostel, it's like staying at your best friend's house. Besides that, it's clean, safe, great location, amazing atmosphere. Great for those that are travelling alone. They even cook you dinner! It doesn't get better than that, thank you guys so much, I had an amazing time!
I LOVED staying here. Domenico and Fabio couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. The place itself is adorable. A bit small with no common room, only the kitchen, but the place itself is so funny. It's hot pink with christmas lights and kitsch all over the place. The rooms are clean, linens clean, bathrooms clean, kitchen clean, everything was clean. I stayed in a private room one night which was really big and really pretty, and the dorm for the next 3. All was good!

Neighborhood is safe area, the atmosphere also good. But San giovannie st is kind of inconvenient. It has only metro A. If I go to rome again I will prefer an accomodation near termini st.
A great hostel with a lot of lovely little touches to make it feel like home - eggs for breakfast, pasta evenings and I was upgraded to a private room for my first night - plus it is INCREDIBLY clean and cared for. It's a personal home, not just a hostel. I had a great stay. Location also good for metro, which allows you to get everywhere in Rome - but you could walk too without difficulty. Slight note - directions say take "sharp left" - this is VERY sharp, almost turning back the way you came.
Staying at this hostel was amazing. Fabio welcomed me with a home made pasta and a glass of prosecco. The hostel is an apartment which makes the atmosphere really cosy and homey. He added all the things to his hostel that he missed when backpacking. And I can say two big thumbs up, he succeeded!
Dreaming Rome was the best hostel we have ever stayed at! Fabio and his brother were the best! Fabio cooked for us and answered all our questions, he even gave a bottle of champagne when we arrived which we have never had from a hotel. Our room was beautiful and the bathrooms were always spotlessly cleaned. Dreaming made our stay in Rome we would highly recommend staying here and would love to come again.
This hostel is fantastic. I know you keep reading this on every review but it truly is. The brothers, Fabio and Dominico, do everything they can to make your stay wonderful. They go out of their way to accommodate any needs. Dominico even ran six blocks to secure a group of us dinner reservations. Fabio went out and bought a new toaster because the other one looked well worn. Excellent service, excellent city, you'll remember staying at this hostel for a long time to come!
Nice location close to metro with restaurants nearby. Great atmosphere to get to know other guests, and Dominic and fabio were so helpful with advice on where to go and just really friendly. Impossible to have a bad stay, would definitely come back.
Staying at this apartment converted into a hostel feels like staying at a friend's house. Fabio runs the hostel and lives in one of the rooms, he's super friendly and always around to answer questions. From here you're less than a 20 minute walk to the Colosseum. Fabio insisted I check out the catacombs. I'm glad I did, it was amazing to see the underground structure and touch volcanic ash. Everyone else staying at the hostel was very friendly as well.
Staying in this hostel is by far one of the best things you can do in Rome! It doesn't feel like a hostel, as it is small, so it's perfect for solo travellers!
The host is very friendly and the atmosphere is very good.

Super central, super convenient (you can literally walk to anywhere in rome) and cute, clean place. But the real highlight of this hostel is Fabio! Sweetest guy ever, he knows the city, knows how to have fun and is always ready to help you and make your stay more enjoyable. I honestly felt like I was living there with a bunch of friends, rather than staying for a few days as a guest. And there's nothing better than feeling at home when you're traveling around :)
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed staying at this hostel, we got lost getting to the place but, other than that we had a great time there!
Great place to stay in Rome! 20 min walking distance from Coliseum , great team (fabio and domenic), very friendly, have almost everything available that you could need. very accommodating, free computer use and wifi which was awesome!!
