Bad part of town, no lockers, no luggage room. Completely lacking the typical friendly hostel atmosphere.

The photos from the hostel at the website aren't similar at all with the reality. Only the bathroom is ok. The security is so so poor, you will not even have a key from you room. The staff is barely speak English. The area near Termini is full of homeless people. It's better pay 2 euros more, than to stay at this hostel in these conditions.

I showed up here, the guy at the front desk found out I was leaving the next day so he moved me to a different hostel closer to the train station. That hostel I was moved to was very nice, brand new looking, Great value, sadly don't remember it's name so this review is basically useless.
