The hostel's staff is really kind and helpful! Take advantage of their tips, specially Framcesco's ones, who is a local guy from Rome! The disadvantage from the hostel is that you are waken by the housekeeper at 10am (but this was warned in the website). On the other hand, if you decide to have a shower in the evening, the bathrooms will be always clean!
Would definitely stay here again. Close to train station and walkable distance to main attractions of Rome. The reception staff are super helpful with where to go, what to see etc and speak great english. They have a deal with a place across the road for pizza/pasta on each night and it's really cheap (although not the greatest food it's well worth what you pay). The kitchen is kind of small for a large hostel so don't plan on cooking too often.
We were only there for a short overnight between transit, and our room had had an incident of some description and needed to be disinfected. The lady was very helpful finding us another room for the night (they did have beds booked for us at Legends Hostel who then sold them on us so wouldn't recommend those guys) - she didn't finish her shift until she had us both in comfy rooms for the night. First air-conditioned room of my trip so I was in heaven after some of the sweatboxes we've stayed in!
there is lots of space in the rooms good wifi and very friendly staff. i reccomend

Don't hesitate to stay at Freedom Traveller, in every respect they went beyond any expectation, clean, spacious, respectful, courteous, comfortable,with garden, luggage storage, kettle,free internet, amazing day staff, amazing cleaner, air-conditioning (great over hot summer). Loose a couple of points for day lockout (summer sleep time) and one slightly argumentative staff member, but gain heaps more points for endless assistance and social interaction, thanks for a wonderful and memorable stay.
Place was awesome, minus the lock out, but close to the main train station (Roma termini) and close to major. Attractions. Would stay at this place again.
Cool hostel in a good location close to the station. I enjoyed my stay there.
We had a great stay in this hostel. The location is pretty perfect, pretty much everything is at walking distance and Termini station is very close, so we took the metro/bus every once and a while too, when we'd been walking too much! The staff is very nice and helpful, it was very nice to have a chat with the hostel owner and he even treated us to a drink! :) The croissants in the morning were unexpectedly good and the hostel was clean. The WiFi worked perfectly!
Great atmosphere, good to meat other people!
Love this hostel, it's not a party hostel. I stayed in the girls only dorm which was had a beautiful wooden floor, high ceilings, white linen, very nice for a hostel! Staff were wonderful, friendly, helpful, informative-everything you would want them to be. Great night's sleep, the air con was very nice in the August heat. Downside was the toilet did not flush very well and the bathroom floor was very wet. Wifi in room worked well too. Would highly reccommend.
Thought security was good due to keys for each section, liked that the hostel was cleaned thoroughly daily and didn't mind the lock out considering how clean it made it. Only two complaints: room next to reception is really loud, and shower in that room does not drain well (which would be disgusting except that its cleaned so often, so really it's the annoyance of having to take really quick showers to avoid overflow)
Good location really close to termani and walking distance to pretty much everywhere. Didn't do any of the free food because we heard it wasn't amazing. Ate directly across the road which was delish. Staff were nice, room and toilet were clean. Would stay again due to location and price
excellent location - near Termini and many great cafes. Staff was helpful and nice. Rooms were air conditioned and everything worked. just one thing, we booked a double with attached bath, and got a shared bath. It wasn't a problem really, as everything was very clean.
3 friends got bitten by bed bugs. when we approached the management, we were offered new sheets and told they would disinfect the room, but that night there were still bed bugs. Yikes I'm still itching. But the breakfast crossaints were delicious and Barbara was really helpful directing us around town.
Loved it here. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
The best hostel we have stayed at so far in our 6 weeks of travels! We has a private in a separate apartment building. It was so quiet even though you are so close to everywhere! The girl who checked us in also gave us a really nice tour on our walk to the room, which was a nice touch. Wifi was great, breakfast was free, it was overall a great value for our money.
This hostel was fairly average in most respects. The location was exceptional, but it lacked in other categories - including atmosphere. Strangely enough, we ended up staying in a room a few blocks away from the hostel's reception area, which made it very difficult to make use of their facilities or mingle with fellow travellers. That being said, it may've been a different experience for us had we been in the main hostel and taken advantage of their "AYCE spaghetti nights", for example.
Excellent location; close to station and metro but in easy walking distance to many attractions. Georgous variety of croissants for breakfast. Private room large with own tv which was great as it didn't have lock out. The staff were very friendly and always keen to help. Supermarket just down the road. I would stay again and also recommend to others. 24 hour staff is also comforting.
Staying at Freedom Traveller was a great choice. The location is very convenient and close to most of the sightseeings. The room I stayed in was well equiped, cleaned and had an AC just as described in the website. Bathroom and showers were very cleaned. The staffs were very welcoming and friendly. I strongly recommend Freedom Traveller to anyone travelling to Rome.
