Perfect choice for a few days of stay in Rome. Extremely helpful and genuinely kind staff have addressed all our requests. Tips on the restaurants and sightseeing where very useful. Neighbourhood itself is very interesting, relatively near to the city centre, few stops by metro, but, in the same time filled with regular Romans running their daily errands. Particularly cool experience is having a breakfast in nearby caffe and watching and interacting with locals.
This hostel is a great choice when you want to stay some days in Rome! It's not in the centre of the city, but it is withing 5 min from the nearest subway station. It is also close to the train station Tiburtina, which is not the main station from Rome, but all the trains arriving to Termini arrive to Tiburtina too. The hostel is fantastic, very well decorated and the staff is wonderful, very helpful!! They will give you very good tips for your stay in Rome. Definitely I will stay here again!!!!
Thanks for the great stay! The staff was very friendly and the place also really valuable for the money we payed - big beds, a clean and really nice bathroom and even our own fridge ;) We had a really nice time in rome and would definitely come back!
Everything you need ! We had a beautiful and cosy room with private bathroom and good shower and even a small refrigerator! Everything 100% clean. Location is good in a safe neighbourhood ca 5 minutes walk to the next Metro station. The staff was wonderful, polite and very helpful about things to do in Rome. Thanks for a great hospitality ! xx

This place was one of our favorites!The rooms are decorated so cute, bathroom is ensuite, and you also have a small kitchen area with mini fridge in your room!AC worked great and also ceiling fan!The staff was very helpful upon arrival: provided map and circled must see sites.They also pointed out a restaurant we had been wanting to try on the map.It is a 5 minute walk to the metro and a few metro stops away from the colosseum.Will stay here again.Great area to see the real side of Rome!
10 minutes away from Bologna metro station from where you can get anywhere in Rome. Staff was very helpful - the lady showed us how to get around. Great value for Rome.
The room was really nice, as was the area...the great staff make sure the lack of 24 hour reception is not an issue by being highly organised and available, not too mention friendly...we had a great stay...
We were very impressed by Il Gong Guesthouse and we were very glad we stayed there. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, our rooms were spacious and clean and located in a very nice neighborhood where the local people were friendly and full of great restaurants (which cost less than in town).

Really nice place! I enjoyed every minute I spent resting there, after my walks through Rome! I visited Rome during the spring, and it was really hot there. Thankfully, the double room has a nice air conditioner to keep you cool when you get back to the hotel. The staff are really nice, the most helpful I've ever been so far. It's 5 min walk to the Blue Metro Line, which connects you directly to the Coliseum. If you are looking for a good place to spend with your partner, this is a good choice!
