The location near Termini station and reasonable price are pros of "Romangelo Hostel(A.K.A Friend House)". Meanwhile, cons of this hostel is its week security system and poor English of reception clerks. Well, actually nothing bad happened during my stay, though, I was so anxious concerning its security. (it is because main door which should be shut always was in fact opened in many times.) Accomodation level of this hostel seems to be average level above all those hostels.
Stayed 1 night here and it was okay. Literally somewhere to sleep that's it. No aircon but the fan provided was sufficient as it wasn't that hot.
Great hostel, mainly as we asked for a room change after first night due to other reasons not relating to the hostel and was achieved in minutes and no fuss. Safe and secure and right in the heart of the city minutes from everywhere!
It's very near the train station, the area is not very good. Good breakfast, but it doesn't work as a hostel. they have only two toilets and showers for all customers, and you don't have key for your room. There is no reception 24/7. The man at reception sometimes is kind and sometimes is rude.
This hostel was amazing! It was only a 10 minute walk from the Colosseum and only about 5 from the train station. The owner was there all of the time and was one of the nicest people I have ever met, he continually went out of his way to help us!! It was also extremely clean, even the bathrooms were excellent! The complimentary breakfast in the morning was also great! I would not consider staying anywhere else if I ever returned to Rome, it was a great experience!!
