I had a wonderful time at Freedom Traveller! They had a nice breakfast with a selection of pastries and coffee to choose from, and snacks and wine at night. It was a great way to meet and interact with others staying at the hostel.

Really great staff, the Bangladeshi bloke is a good laugh and such good value for money with the wine in the evenings! Wish more hostels were like this. Great for solo travellers on a budget.

All stuffs are very kind and helpful! They try to help me a lot and I was really happy. We can drink several kinds of coffee drinks with €0.30! The space for everyone is enough large and we can make some friends with free wine and snacks. The location is also nice so i really like this hostel :D

A little old, but overall good value for money. Included breakfast is nice and so is the wine and snacks they serve in the evening. I had to change rooms mid-way through my stay, which was a little frustrating. I saw cleaners in the rooms every day but found dust bunnies and items left by previous guests on the floor. Relatively inexpensive hostel-- nothing fantastic but not too bad.

One of the staff scared me a bit but she had good intentions and generally they were nice. Loved the wine and snacks!

Staff were awesome and the free wine and breakfast were great. The lock out for "cleaning hour" was inconvenient and the hour was more like two hours per room. after a big night out it is challenging to be unable to sleep in! though perhaps that was a good thing! Lack of keycards for doors was annoying.

This is the second time I spend my vacation in this hostel (the first time was one year ago), and I am somehow disappointed. Fist, the staffs were not so friendly compared to those whom I met 1 year ago. When I checked out, the lady at the counter was unfriendly, just like she wanted me to go as soon as possible, she could not even give a smile. Second, the sack was not so good, few things to eat. Yet, a very nice thing: the hostel locates at a very convenient place, near the Termini Station

I had a rm mate check-in at 00:30am, dropped the bag n left till 4:30am. He came back like his home, did everythin loud ... went to the toilet without flushing, constantly spoke sth to himself which I could barely hear the words. I was totally pissed off by his amazing performance. In conclusion, if u r stayin in a dorm. A crazy rm mate would be gd enough to ruin a 5 stars hotel. So why bother so much about how ppls review. Im tellin you now, gd location, helpful stuff, what u need is luck!

1. Keys for two doors are hardly to open (four doors in total). And the staff always told me try to open the keys by myself first instead of ringing the doorbell. 2. Unstable temperature of shower water; maximum water temperature is between cool and warm. 3. The drain in of the the shower room is clogged, drain very slow (make your feet soak in the water after shower). 4. The sockets are not close to bed. 5. Elevator is not allowed to use, which is inconvenient for the guests in 4th floor.

Great place, good location near termini, and nice travellers staying. This is a younger hostel, but not a party vibe a chilled one. Everyone is nice and you can tell they are all trying to get the best rome experience as well. My bunkmates were nice but kind of rude when backing up to leave (it was 5am after new years..). Meet up with some friends and just had a great time. Staff is SO NICE! one even gave me a blanket and "tucked" me in when I was freezing my ass off! (not hostels fault).100%

Nice place; very small; almost claustrophobic at times. The guy from Bangladesh at the reception was super friendly. I had free wine and nibbles every night and breakfast was good; coffee and big chocolate croissant; really nice gestures. Downside was that my room was close to the reception and woke me up at 2am once. But definately recommend it for value and happy hour and will stay here again when I'm in Rome.
