The hostel was great, better than I expected. OK, it's in a bit of a rough neighborhood as being around Termini is, but in an excelent spot if you enjoy walking the city, and with the metro 2 blocks away. Not a party hostel, which I didn't mind at all! :D

I would definitely not stay at this hostel again. It's advertised as a fun hostel but it was so far from it. The atmosphere completely sucked, I'd only recommend it for people who are staying there long term and want a quiet, do nothing hostel. The staff were awful - the night shift guy clearly hated his life & the day shift guy was pleasant but gave us wrong information. A load of laundry cost me over 12euro and the amenities suck. Would never stay here again.

The Hostel is very well organised and is pretty clean and has good facilites. The location is decent. The downside is that the staff are not really friendly and not really helpfull. Other than that the hostel has big common room and the atmosphere is not very happening because they have a curfew at 12 and close the common area. The kitchen is also open only from 4pm to 10pm.

Had a great stay here and honestly wasn't wanting for anything. It's clean, the wifi works well, and it's close enough to most stuff in Rome.

Good hostel to save money. It was clean, and comfortable. It's pretty close to everything by metro, but not really walking distance. You have to pay to use the computers and you have to pay for breakfast, but other than that, a good hostel.

Totally fine, nothing special. Nothing bad, either! Just a clean place to sleep. Shower got cold really fast, though.

The very convenient location, facilities at the hostel and the courteous and helpful staff all made the stay at the hostel very good. The hostel, however, did not honor the discount offer made to me by Hostelworld.com They charged me the full amount as listed in their website inspite of my requests. This certainly made me feel cheated.

Excelent location. the story is, one morning, there were Justin Bieber genaration, busted to the bathroom door like group of idiots. they were drunk. I almost called police but unfortunetely I dont speak Italian so I'd be hard to explain how mad I was.

The staff was very friendly. The bathrooms were always clean. The lobby was under renovation though so there was no place to hang out there. They also don't have computers or vending machines but the hostel on the floor beneath does. (My friends stayed there, it's called Four Seasons...I would book that one if I were you!) Overall however, I was very satisfied with my stay. Cleanliness for me is very important and they were definitely up to par with that.

Just stayed for one night, but both the bed and bathroom were very clean. The location too is great, near the train and bus terminal. Just be careful when wandering around the area there at night, in my opinion it was a bit dangerous at night and I almost got robbed at the terminal.

Can't agree with the neighborhood around. But truly, it's very convenient location, 5 min walk to Termini station.

Security- unlocked, open access luggage room. Buzz into the building not entirely safe as anyone can be let in (they don't check identity) and anyone can follow someone in and have complete access to the building. Value for Money- Expensive
