Good location near Termini and not far from the central attractions, and the bed was one of the most comfortable hostel beds I've ever slept in. Staff were helpful and other guests were friendly. The shower wasn't great but did the job, and the coffee with the breakfast wasn't very nice, but other than that no complaints!

Great hostel all around! Staff was very helpful with tips around the city. I love the owner that encouraged us to get out! HE was awesome! Breakfast is situated across the street: croissant and coffee. Loved the people I roomed with. The location is just fantastic! (Great restaurant right across the street) Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned everyday and great kitchen. GO! Thank you for making my stay wonderful!

Thanks so much Freedom Traveller! The staff was kind and helpful to me, even gave me a free towel. Always willing to answer questions. The room was clean and comfortable, and a good place to sleep or just rest in. The WiFi worked well, and I appreciated the pastries in the morning. Also the luggage storage was so helpful! It's nice to not have to bring my suitcase everywhere with me before check-in opens. Know that you do have to bring your own locker locks, and the bathroom was average.

It was our girls weekend out (3 girls) and we stayed 2 nights in this hostel - just next to Termini station so excellent location, staff was extremely helpful and kind, gave us a lot of good tips on visiting, transport etc. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to visit Roma - will be definitely back!

Good value for money and close to termini station plus easy to get too from all tourists spots. Not great if you want to meet people as its all split on different levels, but staff very helpful and nice. Breakfast isn't much but a good start for the day and supermarket is close by.

Compared to most hostels in Rome, this one is pretty good. Clean, friendly staff, safe. I was out the whole time so didn't really get a vibe of the atmosphere. But I am 28 as well!

I would recommend this hostel. The staff is very helpful, the guests are pretty respectful. I did have a great time in there. The breakfast is not enough to finish your hungry. It is a tasty pastry and a awful hot bevareage. You cannot consider to drink that.

we were in a private room and were not aware that cleaners came in every day. It would have been nice if the hostel had told us ahead of time. I also did not appreciate the fact that the cleaners threw out a bag of my food because I had left it in the same vicinity as the trash can. If I had wanted to throw it out I would have put it IN the trash can.

the smell in the building was repulsive. also we were not told ahead of time that our room would be in a different building a couple blocks away than the main part of the hostel.


74%

Shower area easy to get flooded, perhaps the drainage outlet is blocked by hair or something. The lock to the apartment is a bit difficult to open. And the bunk beds are not very comfortable, those mattresses needed change(but the single bed beside mine is much more comfortable).

Atmosphere was kinda lame. Walking distance to the main train station and the rooms were clean.


54%

The bahtroom, was mouldy, the toiletseat was not fixed, and the whole room was very bad air -conditioned. The staff was not unfriendly but also not very friendly
