Good hostel, very close to the station which was useful and within easy walking distance of a few major landmarks. Bunk beds are quite basic, staff were helpful and the free wine and snacks is a good way to interact with people. Unfortunately, the garden was under construction so didn't get to enjoy it!
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.
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 front desk staff was really helpful. Great location just five minutes from the station. Having air conditioning was an added bonus!
Friendly staff. Very easy to find from the train station.
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.

The hostel was in a great location and the rooms were clean however, the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. One day it rained and we asked what there was to do in the city when wet and the response we received was "I don't know. Museums and stuff". We were barely given any information on local things to do besides the main tourists sites. The 'free wine' at night was a poor attempt at creating a social atmosphere for fellow travellers. Would not recommend for solo travellers.
Located near the train station. Dorms had AC & lockers and were spacious. WIFI worked well & there was free wine at night which was a good opportunity to meet fellow travellers. It's a handy hostel if you're in transit. Walkable to the main sights in Rome.
Staff are excellent, and helpful, and was quite happy with cleanliness and room conditions. The large lockers for bags etc. was also a big plus. The best thing about the place is the happy hour with free wine and snacks, great way to say hello to fellow travellers and share some tips about rome. Excellent place to live in rome. Would definitely recommend to others.
I chose to stay here after seeing it was HostelWorld recommended but have no idea why they'd recommend such a place. I was there for 3 nights. My room on the first night was on the 4th floor, I was the only girl sharing with 3 guys. The aircon didn't work, there was no lock on the bathroom door, the shower door was falling off, an accident waiting to happen, & the shower was covered in mould & clearly hadn't been cleaned in months. My second room was better but not adequate. AVOID!
