Place was clean and comfortable. Rooms had air con which was a godsend. Lockers were huge, and rooms were clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Not the easiest place to meet other travellers though. No big common room, and no bar which was a shame.

Freedom Traveler was a great hostel. It is right next to Termini station, giving you access to the metros, buses, and cabs conveniently. Rooms and bathrooms were very nice and clean. Felt completely safe the entire time as there is a main entrance door, a gate door, another door to get into your room area, and then finally your room door. Free breakfast included pastries and coffee. Social hour at night included free wine, chips, and crackers.

Stayed only one night but it was great. Rooms was super clean an air conditioned. Bathrooms were decent, water was hot. There's not much around the hostel but the train station but that was nice for arriving and departure, also easy access to everything you need to get around the city. Definitely worth staying here.

Only spent a few days here at the start of my trip but it was a great place to meet new people, the happy hour is a fantastic idea and works well! Really close to the main train station and the staff are always on hand to help you out. Really hope I get to go back the next time I'm in Rome!

Very easy to meet other people, the perfect place for a solo traveler. Right next to the train station and only a 20 min walk to the Colosseum. Cleaned everyday, big spacious rooms, free wine, snacks, coffee and pastries.

The staff was rude. I felt like I was at church camp and they were the camp counselors. They have a common area but it wasn't very comfortable. I tried cookin one night but the kitchen grossed me out and I didn't use it again. I lost a map and it was a huge burden for them to give me another. The computer in the main entrance was a good asset and helped me out a lot. Other than that I didn't feel welcome or comfortable there and I avoided the staff as much as possible.

Hi thank you for the review. Rude staff hard to believe they are one of the best features of this hostel with a 90% rating. besides the main common area we have several other ones with couches ad a nice outfoor garden terrace i am surprised you didn't find at least one comfortable. I don't undersand the church camp feeling you got , we serve free wine and snacks every evening in the main common area and our atmosphere rating of 85% you don't get it at church camps. Have safe travels..

The staff here is hilarious. The happy hour was a lot nicer than I expected, and was a good way to meet other travelers for dinner/drinks. The rooms are very well maintained, large, and at least some are air-conditioned. The hostel is near Termini, so you can connect to other transportation options easily, although I found it easier to walk most places. My one complaint was the keys don't always work in the main gate so you have to buzz the desk half the time. Luckily they have someone 24/7.

Great hostel if you want to meet fellow travellers! Thanks to the free wine and snacks which they serve every night I met some really nice people. Very social hostel, the staff are really nice too and help you if you need something. The rooms were nice and clean, overall a good place to stay when in Rome.

Nice hostel, pretty good location. The front desk staff could have been a little more friendly and helpful. Free wine at night which was a great, cheap way to get to know other travelers. The owner was also extremely nice!

After staying in this hostel for 4 nights, I can honestly say I felt like part of the family. The staff are so so so friendly and wonderful people to be around. The hostel itself was very clean and is right across from the train station so it's convenient to get anywhere from there. the free wine nights created a wonderful environment to participate in and make tons of new friends, I would like to add I made many I will never forget!!!

The staff is very friendly. I really liked the way Gina and Sohail helped me plan my itinerary as I was there for only 2 days. The location is also great as it is one block away frm the Termini station..Therr are a lot of good places to eat as well!

Super clean and stylish. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. The breakfast (that is included) seemed pretty terrible to me (coffee from the machine and brioches) but on the other hand a small and sweet breakfast is a very Italian thing. Gret location nearby Termini Station. Internet of the hostel's computers was terribly slow, practically didn't work, but WIFI was ok in the common areas.

The private room we stayed in was quite nice, the air conditioning was AMAZING (you control it yourself), there was a tv in our room that worked very well and the wifi was good. The staff were especially helpful and kind! I would certainly recommend it!

Great staff. Wifi was good. Location is great. 10 free bottles of wine at happy hour each night :). The only thing that I found odd was that you need 5 keys for this hostel. Haha, but that may be a secret social experiment because the also give you 10 bottles of wine. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for the memories.

One of my best hostel experiences! Great location, friendly staff and clean rooms. The happy hour really brought all the travellers together and was perfect for solo travellers. The owner and the staff put in a lot of effort to create a good hostel atmosphere. I will definitely come back!
