Great hostel in a perfect location near the train station. Stayed in a mixed dorm and was very comfortable. The rooms are cleaned daily. My only complaint would be the fact that there is only one bathroom, but it didn't cause much of a problem.

Pros: the staff are super friendly and helpful. It's only a couple blocks away from the main train station so it's central to everything. Towel included and linens seemed clean. They make your bed every day. Cons: the wifi didn't work at all in the rooms. The hostel is in an apartment building so the rooms are separated on different floors, making it hard to meet people. The location seemed a little sketchy to be walking alone late at night.

Close to Termini station. Includes a small free breakfast at a nearby restaurant. Nice place to stay for some peace, and they will even do your laundry for you for a few euros.

If I had booked this as a hotel, I would have been very happy. The rooms were superb and I was impressed with the reception given by the staff (as well as complementary gifts on arrival!). It is located very close to the train station, and it is easy to see the city walking from the front door. Despite all of the above, I would not classify this accommodation as a hostel since there were no common areas: No kitchen, no lounge, no games room or any other area one is able to socialize.

This was an excellent choice! The staff were really helpful and nice, they were attentive and provided us with everything we needed and more. Great value for $$ paid, will definitely return and highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Rome!

The location, a 7 min walk from Termini, is the best aspect of the hostel. The security is tight but since the rooms are on the 2nd floor it might be a bit noisy around nighttime if cranky people are wandering around the nearby streets. The staff are friendly and welcoming. However, I would rate it as poor value for money in terms of facilities: the breakfast is just one crossiant and a cappuccino, only one towel is provided for the entire stay, no complementary bath items are provided.

Amazing staff who really look after each guest with a great first impression. Rooms were awesome and so were the bathrooms. I do wish either a fridge or some sort of kitchen facility was available, but with the breakfast voucher for a great pastry shop around the corner, that helps with staying on a food budget.

We had booked an "ensuite" room but ended up sharing a bathroom with the entire floor. Calling it "ensuite" was misleading.

The owners were so helpful and welcoming. They helped us finding our way around Rome and have us invaluable tips to avoid ques which absolutely made our trip!

overall our experiene was great -m they are very helpfull and friendly, the included breafast is great right down the street at a really above average breakfast cafe with really good pastry, the room was safe and was really nice, tv is a plus wifi was shaky but when working well was good, location was really conveint as it was so close to termini station just 2/3 blocks. Ac could have worked better in private room. 11 guests to one bathroom is rough early in the morning - is the only complaints

My room had a problem with a motion sensor light switching on and off rapidly. I told the staff and they dealt with it immediately. Another the day the wifi went out and it was again resolved quickly. Nice hostel even if the laundromat check in was peculiar. Great recommendations for seeing Rome and breakfast included. Met some interesting people in my room and having free bottles of wine surely helped. Would recommend.

The place is quite near termini train station, and it is easier to find where it is. The staff of the hostel is very kind and nice, and they are patient to tell where you should visit and detail route of the whole city. but a little expensive for one night tax in Rome. anyway, it is a nice place.
