This was my last hostel before returning home. The location is great (right by Termini). The staff was nice. They had free wine at night and it was a great way to meet people staying at the hostel. I could see myself staying here again. Only downside was the garden area was essentially a construction zone.

We appreciate that , we try to make it possible ,like people meeting each other and we're glad seeing people enjoying the atmosphere created by us, unfortunately the garden is under constructions but will be finished soon so there is another reason to come back ! All the best :) .


The hostel is ideal for short stays! Very helpfull and friendly staff! Great breakfast and wine time at night! We really enjoyed our stay and we would defenitely go back!


This hostel was great! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the fresh doughnuts and coffee in the morning was a bonus! The location is within walking distance of everything! Even the Vatican if you enjoy walking! Rooms were clean and the area was very safe and secure! Would definitely stay here again to visit Rome as there's so much to see! Thanks x


Reception was helpful and the dinner time drinks and snacks made for a great way to meet people!


Staff was really helpfull and nice. I got the 4beds female room, it was cozy and clean, private bathroom also organized. The room was a bit noisy, but not really a problem because if u close the window that goes away. Their happy hour is great!! Wine and snacks for free to meet new people from all over the world! Would definetly stay here again.


The staff is very nice that was the best part. Negatives sides the bunk beds are very noisy, the wifi doesnt work well in the rooms. Very pricy for what you get... But otherwise alright


The location was great and the staff were really helpful. There were also huge lockers big enough for a large suitcase which was a big plus. Only things that could've been better were that some of the lockers were broken and the street outside was very noisy until late.


this hostel was so comfortable. good location and so kind staff. if I visited Rome again, I wanna booking this hostel again!


Really nice hostel to stay at in Rome! The staff are super friendly and helpful, the rooms are comfy and clean and it's in a really handy location (5 mins walk from Roma Termini station). Would definitely recommend staying here!


Really enjoyed our stay here good location, staff were fantastic had great pro tips for things around the city.


helpful staff!


It is a lovely clean arrangement with friendly staff. Good location. We stayed in a private suite for 4. We were provided with towels , a private bathroom and morning breakfast. It was nothing short of a hotel with hostel facilities. The only negative point was that some renovation work was going on in the little garden outside. Would have loved to sit there in the morning or evening.

Brilliant hostel, amazing staff, all so friendly and welcoming! Great location, 5 minutes from the main train station in Rome. Rooms are good, air conditioning works well,, there is a good club/bar place a 5 minute walk from this hosel. Free wine which is drinkable after a glass or 2, I would definitely stay here again.

Every staff member we met went above and beyond to be helpful and kind. The atmosphere was good. The small common room had free, decent wine. The location is in close walking distance to the main train station, but the directions online are somewhat confusing. You actually exit out of the right side of the train station to walk down one street and turn right. You can rent towels if you aren't staying in a private room.


no bunk beds and nice atmosphere! nice towels for rent. 5 minute walk from the main station, but not the best location in town. very simple breakfast, even for italian standards. great that they have a lift. 24 hours reception.


I found this hostel fine but nothing special, very bare bones and rough around the edges. Some staff friendly, some not so much. The coffee machine broke and the back yard wasn't really usable. The rooms were very nice though.


5 minutes walk from Termini Station, great near shops/ restaurants. I liked the large rooms which were clean and the big clean bathrooms. Hostel atmosphere was good in the evening with the free red wine provided, a good idea! The breakfast could be more healthy ideally! Would recommend staying here.


The staff were lovely!!


The front desk staff was really helpful. Great location just five minutes from the station. Having air conditioning was an added bonus!


With Freedom Traveller, the cost matches your accommodations. With their inexpensive prices, I had realistic expectations about the accommodations, and those expectations were met. The room was simply furnished, had a/c, and was clean. The bathrooms were not that clean, but for what I was paying and for a one-night stay, I didn't mind. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hostel is located about 5 minutes from Roma Termini, making it very convenient.
