This hostel was an enormous disappointment. Everything that could be broken was broken. The atmosphere was grim and the staff stressed and tired. I would not recommend staying here.

Very professionally operated hostel with friendly staff (except one who has an attitude issue, confirmed with roommate - otherwise super excellent staff). Location is excellent - a few steps from Termini station. Wifi worked great in the room, the reception/common area and was a bit weak in the dinning lounge. Bottom bunk in the 4-bed dorm was low but the mattress was very comfortable. Luggage area provided free of charge in case you have an early arrival or late departure. Overall a nice stay.

convenient location to train station, so easy to get anywhere around Rome. Easy to meet other travelers in common areas. Nice to have a kitchen and laundry, because that seems difficult to find around Italy. nice rooms. great to have lockers.

The overall stay was great! The location near the train station was very convenient; although, this made it very loud at night and hard to sleep. I also think the bathrooms could have been cleaned better.

From the online postings it looked as though the bar was at this hostel however it is not, its about a 10 min walk past tremini station. We wanted to do laundry around 11 and they told us we couldnt depsite the facilities still working. The hostel common area was very hot and the kitchen was medicore.

I think the only problem I got was the internet. The WiFi doesn't work very well in the main areas of the hostel and is rare to work in the rooms. People are nice and cordial.

A good bit of the things in our property were broken. For instance the toilet seat was sitting on the ground and the shower door had package tape all over it. I don't think the man at the front counter knee what the word friendly was. The location was nice. It was close to the bottom of the hill which is by the train station. It was that that you could pay with other currencies. He gives you a far exchange rate. It's more of a place to leave your bags, not a hangout.

I have only been one night here, unfortunately was not enough, but the hostel was very good, and if i ever come back to rome, i definitely will stay here and spent a little more time.

Very close to Termini station and easy to find. Didn't feel particularly comfortable walking around the neighborhood , especially being a female solo traveler, but not sure if there really is a "safe" area in Rome. They have pub crawls which is nice to meet other people. Wifi only works in common area which is kind of a pain but tolerable. Only about 20 minute walk to main tourist sites.

Good location, about two min walk from train station. Clean and friendly staff. A little noisy at times and a bit more of a party hostel so not ideal for people wanting to sleep and relax but all in all good stay and would return

Hostel is small but clean and convenient. The staff were very helpful. The only negative was the kitchen was very small and had limited utensils and equipment for cooking. Breakfast was pretty simple - bread, ham, cheese, jams, some fruit, cereal and was the same each night. Good value for 4 euros. Would recommend for younger crowd who aren't looking to party every night. Hostel is pretty quiet.

Great staff! Friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and well done. Appreciated having wifi in common area and in rooms. Very convenient to walk to major sights and to catch the metro or train to other places. Also easy to catch transport from here to both airports (from really early and throughout the day). Would definitely stay here again.

The worst hostel of my hole trip!! The location was horrible, the streets near by felt really unsafe, since I got there there were problems with the number of girls in the room and the unoccupied beds, the staff wasn't very kind, and the facilities were average. Thankfully I just stayed one night and I was supoust to return for 2 nights more but I cancelled and went to another hostel. I don't recommend it at all, it's very popular but there are others way better!
