Location is perfect for exploring the city; not far from Termini, lots of restaurants close by; the people working there are very helpful and friendly, very well organised, I really recommend this place and will go there again when back in Rome. More like a hotel than a hostel!

A great location! The "hostel" consists of only few rooms, and the common area, if you can call it that, is a small table and few chairs. However, if you are looking for a clean and quiet place to rest, then this is ideal! Polite staff and I liked that the breakfast was served in a cafeteria around the corner.

You get a discount on laundry services, free use of computers, and wifi (though sometimes temperamental), and free croissant and coffee. Very clean and well kept. Not the best price, but quite reasonable for Rome considering what you get.

Was a very nice place to stay! Close to the train station but felt that the train station was not the safest of places. The security was great at the hostel as well as the helpful staff! I really enjoyed the people we met there and how there were no bunk beds. It felt like we were in a hotel rather than a hostel! The employees are very helpful and really work with you to plan a trip of a life time! The places they recommend to eat are a must! Great people and great food!

Not very well marked, a sign would be really beneficial. Overall very pleased, everything was clean, staff was VERY helpful and friendly. Location was good, only a few minutes from San Macro square and other necessary stores. I would stay here again.

Great staff, felt very welcomed. Good location right near termini, really easy to get anywhere. Nice people in the hostel as well, small safes for valuables. Had everything you would need - linens, towel, internet, overall a good stay.

Free wine upon arrival. Friendly host. Mabri was just the best. Gave me a personal itinerary for my two days stay (way better than the free walking tours that I found useless). Probably the best hostel I have ever been to. More like a hotel than a hostel.

Although convenient to the train station, I was thankful that I was only spending the night. Trash bins are lining the walls of the lobby, and they and their smell were overwhelming. The hostel is on the 7th floor, accessible with an elevator. The room was small, but the bed was comfortable. I will not be going back.

This was a fine hostel. Nothing great, but for the price of hostels in Rome it is value for money. Good facilities, nice rooms, location is really good too; not far from a main train station and a stones throw from a dozen great restaurants in any direction. Wouldn't really recommend it for anyone looking to socialise, in fact they even refer you to another hostel down the road if you want some nightlife.

Mabri was so kind explaining all about Rome, where to go and what to do. A bottle of wine was given to me, something unusual, but I loved that.

The hostel's location is great and the staff is very helpful.. We stayed in a double room and there were 2 more rooms in the same floor including a dormitory-type room but there is only 1 shower and toilet is also in it! so if someone is taking shower you have to wait for the toliet which is not really good! There is a kitchen for common-use but there is almost no equipment!

Owner Comment (Hide)
This is totaly not fair and not true, the room you booked is shared bathroom and we gave you the room to share with ONLY one room, so why you are saying different, i think to share with one another room is THE MINIMUM other wise it's have to be private bathroom, again about kitchen, if we didn't promise in our microsite, why you are complain about it, so you should book another place with kitchen. hope it's clear staff funny palace rome

Although it would have been nice for hostel to have been closer to Trastevere and further away from the Termini area, it was extremely easy to get around. The hostel was incredibly clean and nice. Definitely one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. The man who worked at the hostel was great and gave us a map of what to do and planned our trip to Rome. All around great experience!

Room is clean and seems to be newly renovated. Johnny is really nice to help you plan your itinerary based on the number of days you have and the free wine bottle is a really great gesture. Could use a much bigger signboard though.

Staff was very helpful and welcoming. Great location. The bed is made everyday for you. There isn't a common area though but if you're looking for a nice comfortable place to stay this is a great place.

It was a nice and quiet hostel to stay at and the staff is helpful. It is not a party hostel, which I appreciated. It was quite cold in the rooms and the kitchen could be better, as it was now it was lacking basic equipment. I would recommend the hostel, for the traveler who seeks a nice place to rest at.

Everything was within walking distance and when you got there the owner gave you a map of where to go and what to see. Very good

The staff was amazing. Location is a few block from Termini, which can be a little rough in the evening. Other than that, it was a fantastic place to stay. Would recommend.
