I had a great time at Freedom Traveller and it was largely due to the staff, well half the staff. Sohel and Gina are absolutely amazing staff members who did everything they could to make the guests feel at home and comfortable. I stayed at Freedom Traveller during Christmas and it was because of them I felt less alone and with an adopted family. The other two staff members could be more friendly. The night dude, is the most unfriendly staff member I've ever met.

This might've been the best hostel I've ever been to. Rooms and bathrooms were nice, great location in the center of Rome. The staff were all very helpful and nice. There is breakfast every day, and happy hour every day with wine provided by the hostel - this was a great opportunity to meet other people staying in the hostel. Really just a great overall experience that made my time in Rome really fun.

Excellent job guys. I'm new to backpacking but I think this has set the benchmark for me for hostels in general. Only thing I wished was that the kitchen area was better organized and showers were a little better on the 3rd floor, but that would be nitpicking given many of the better points.

Nice Hostel, close to termini. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast is ok however providing the free wine in the evenings created a nice social atmosphere. I would recommend this place to others :)

The location itself was very near to the main station which was good, but the private room we had wasn't in the main building of the hostel and hard to access with bags. The bathroom had been recently cleaned but was old and the shower was moldy and one day the entire shower fitting fell off the wall and landed on me during my shower. The included breakfast was great and the free wine during the evening had a great atmosphere.

What an amazing hostel. I've been to many and this was one of the top. Not only is it only minutes away from Termini Station, it's also within walking distance from the sites (although I did was 15 miles/ 24 km in one day). There's a great atmosphere especially for single travelers. The only thing I wish was different was that there was a lock provides with the lockers. But honestly it was very safe without the lock. As a young single female traveler I Highly recommend this hostel.

Only stayed for a couple of nights but very comfortable and easy to navigate to places. About a ten minute walk from a central train station which made everything so easy! Super clean and the room I stayed in was quiet. Enjoyable stay and would recommend to everyone as affordable and value for money.

My friends and I had a nice stay at Freedom Traveller. A walkable distance from Rome's major sites, good free breakfast/evening happy hour, and staff were friendly. Towels are 2 euros and there is a a 5 euro deposit for the door key.

The staff is great! They help you finding the best ways to know the city. There is a common room with wine and chips some days after 7pm, which is very nice! The kitchen is a bit small but well equiped. I stayed in a private room and was very nice! It is in another building but the facilities are great! There is even a Tv on the room. I recomend!

I had read a lot of good feedback, so my expectations were high. The free breakfast was great, but the snacks and drinks hour did not give much opportunity to make friends like I thought it would. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Nice location 5 minutes from termini station. Supermarket and cheap food in the same street. Nice staff. Free wine and snacks is very cool, but it's definitively not an animated hostel.

Just an average hostel. Pros: superb location near Termini (3 blocks), free breakfast (croissants and coffe as many you want), a hapoy hour for free with some wine and snacks. Cons: had bad wi fi (at least during my stay), not very clean (at least my room). Just a normal hostel

Decent place, really close to train station, which was nice. Croissants for breakfast were really good! Staff were alright. Nothing fancy, but fine place.

Staff was great in general; I only spent two nights there and I already I felt sorry to say goodbyes. Specially the guy at night, he was so smiley! Also, the coffee/chocolate machine had the best machine-chocolate I've tried. I was impressed by that.

This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in! The staff was sooo friendly and helpful, and genuinely interested in making us comfortable. The free wine and snacks each night was a great way to make friends with the other travelers, and the free breakfast in the morning was super convenient so we could get a jump on exploring. The location is perfect-right by the metro and a bus service straight to the air port. It was very clean and had everything we needed!
