I loved it! Small hostels are the best, and this one felt especially homey. The staff were awesome; they introduced me to the music of Adriano Celentano, and they were both very personable. Loved the rooms, loved the people, loved the facilities. My one tiny complaint was that to get to Ciampino for 6:30am from the hostel can be very challenging since the Metro doesnt start until 5:30am. I was able to flag down a cab though, so no big deal. Loved it! :) :) :)
They are amateurs, the hostel is inside a family building and the guests are not allowed to use the elevators (???) They sell cheap food, claiming that it will be more expensive in a restaurant, but in a restaurant you will also get a well prepared larger portion.
Location is great. Within walking distance to the nearest train station. The Collosseum is only a few stations away. The hostel is great in general but the info about City Tax could have been clearer on the page to explain that it is not included in the "payment upon arrival" amount stated in the booking confirmation email (although it should be) so people who come to stay at the hostel could come more prepared.
