Room smelled like mildew, cold showers, overcharged us, but great location


There aren't any identification outside the building that it's a hostel. Owners aren't very friendly. It's necessary to pay for cleaning your room before you use the room. You need to pay to leave your bags there before time check out. The check out is earlier than normal. They give just 1 toillete paper for 3 people use during 3 days.


Great location - very close to the Vatican and easy to bus or walk into central Rome. Facilities are ok - our "double room" was a sofa bed (but a comfortable one) and in the shower the water only runs while you are holding down a button on the shower head which is a pain. No common areas so not good if you're looking for something social, but otherwise great value for money.


Really good stay here. The guy running the place was by far. The most helpful guy I've ever had. He sat us down when we got there and gave us a map with everything of interest that he'd marked out personally. Definitely not a hostel though just a good place to stay and chill out at a decent price. Being right next to the Vatican too is pretty cool too!


It is located right across the Vatican state, connections to the city center are good, the bus goes every 5 minutes, some attractions can be reached even my foot. The rooms and bathroom were very clean, the kitchen is fully equiped. One night the hot water was missing, but they took care of this problem. The girl who takes care for the flat is very nice and helpfull, she even provided us with the free Rome guide book and some tips.


Great location, great host. We had a lovely time in Rome and we will be back. Perfect place to stay when visit Rome! Thank you :)


Angelo was a fantastic host - the area was awesome, really close to the Vatican + easy to get to the bus! Angelo gave us so many recommendations of what to do and so we never felt at a loss. Overall a great experience and we would go back in a heartbeat.


Envy Italy was very close to all the main attractions by foot or by bus, which was not too far away. Rooms and bathroom We're nuce and clean. Had access to all kitchen appliances, which was nice. He staff were very helpful and great people!

We enjoyed our stay here! Very nice and informative host. Kind of annoying that there is an extra fee for cleaning, additional to the price and the tourvinst taxes. Internet is slow and the TVs not working. Location is good though, two minutes from the Vatikan. Around twenty minutes to the center, buses are frequent if you don't feel like walking. Not a hostel, you rent a room in the apartment where the owner also lives. Nice and quiet!


It isn't a hostel at all; it's an apartment rented out. There's no sign of the place at the address - you need to call up the owner who'd then come down. Also, the host wasn't punctual with letting us the room in time - neither did he give us a place to sit for the 3 hours that we had to wait. Note that they charge 5 Euros a night as cleaning fee - I have NO idea what that's for!


The 'hostel' is basically 2 brothers with 2 flats and some spare bedrooms. They're great guys; friendly, helpful, gave us a map and lots of touristy places to visit. Don't expect anything great with the atmosphere of the hostel. Chances are you're going to be out all day and just coming back to sleep anyway. Got moved to a different room in the 2nd flat for our last 2 nights and WiFi was near non-existent which was the biggest downside. It's right by the Vatican so that's a plus for location!
