This is a fantastic hostel, very clean, secure, super friendly helpful staff who will help you plan you trip in Rome. The area is fine with many reasonably prices restaurants to choose from. So close to the main train station and airport buses. We walked to all the sites in one day. The room was nice, the bathroom was modern and clean. Well done Funny Palace on your dedication.

The owners were helping us to get our lost luggage from the airport. We did not expect such a outstanding service. Thank you very much!

I stayed at this hostel for 1 night, so I did not get to experience everything but from what I got it was worth the money, nice small clean room, decent wifi in the rooms, breakfast included and a free bottle of wine when I checked in :).

Initially we were a little dubious with the check in being in the laundromat, however we were pleasantly surprised with the level of detail and service we received at check in. Even though we were only staying one night we were given multiple options and tips for getting the most out of our short stay in Rome. The location was great for transport!

Nice clean hostel, not really conducive to meeting people though due to the small rooms and the layout of the place. Helpful staff and great WIFI throughout. Very close to Termini station

We stayed in the double room with ensuite bathroom. It was nice and clean with comfortable beds. We had satellite tv with some English programming. Wifi worked great also. Close to Termini station with restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast included at a nearby bar was good. Owner was nice and helped in planning our time in Rome.

it`s good place to stay calm. they clean room so well. but it was really hard to hang out with someone. no terrace. if u just want to hang out with somebody and you are alnoe traveller, choose another hostel. but if u want to stay calm, this hostel is quite good.

Beware of a €3,50 per night per person "city tax." I'm not sure if this is city-wide but it was an unexpected expense. Otherwise, the room was very nice & clean and the staff were really helpful when we asked them for help planning our trips, saved us a lot of time and frustration. Another note, they only accept cash. A little hard to find because the check-in is in a laundromat underneath/next door to the actual hostel and the only indication is a small bumper sticker on the wall outside.

bad bathroom of which there was only one tonight/bathroom for all occupants. Rooms were big but not worth it considering how gross the bathroom was. breakfast=one pastry, bad hostel for what is paid. No bedside lamps too

This hostel was great for our group of 3. Had more of a hotel feel to it which was a good thing for us. We never had to worry about waking others up or being woken up. The hostel staff was also very cool and helpful. Not much of a place to socialize with other travelers but awesome for visiting and viewing the city. Highly recommended!
