Decent place, but only two showers and two toilets per floor. To take a shower you have to push a button continuously to keep the water going, and the toilets don't work very well when the showers are running. One night the water stopped working completely, leading to pretty disgusting bathroom situations. Also the wifi only works in the lobby, if at all. And they charge for storage in the luggage room (which isn't even locked!) and other small things. Other than that, it's fine.

Overall great place to stay. Rooms were large, had wifi, and good size storage lockers. I arrived before check in and there was a location to store my luggage which was very handy. Located right by termini station so arriving and departing was quite easy especially traveling to an early morning flight. They also had some fun events set up for those staying in the hostel which was kind of cool. Also free use of computers came in handy.

Good hostel near to Termini, lack of bar area but you can easily walk to the the main hostel and the Bramble Bar & Kitchen.

We stayed here because we only had one night in Rome and so it was very convenient to take the train to the airport (it's right next to termini)

Wifi did not work anywhere, even though they claim it does, except for the lobby and that was only for about 5 minutes. They offered a tour to the Vatican for 39€ student price with When in Rome Tours and the place only charges 20€ for students. An employee also came in to clean the room while we were getting ready and didnt even ask/wait for us to leave. They also say luggage storage is free but you do need to pay a fee.they will not recommend a restaurant that's not the one they work with.

Very convenient location from Termini Station, however a little further out from the sites (walkable if your'e ambitious like us!). Did not pay for the breakfast. The 8 bed room was open and had a table and chair which was nice. The lockers were big enough to fit our packs so we could lock them up in the room. The showers and toilets were clean. Overall a good stay!

The best hostel I've ever had! The staff is very friendly, especially one guy Ovens, he was so kind to give detailed instructions. Wifi is average, but it works everywhere inside. They have lockers both in room and at the reception, which works good and costs not so much. Breakfast was not included, but it costs only 4 euro, it's good because in this hostel you don't have to pay taxes per night. The main disadvantage is that there are no covers for blankets.Toilet and bath inside room-convenient

Whilst being next to Termini station was very convenient, if you can afford it, being located more centrally is better. Liked the activities organised by the hostel (pub crawl, sangria night) and staff were really friendly. There was a kitchen available for guests to use (except breakfast times). Some PCs also available, but wifi was good so I never had to use a PC.

The staff at the desk didn't really help us when we had questions about sight-seeing the next day but they were nice. Don't forget your passports when staying here. Wifi is average

The area was a little sketchy but they have a lot of cameras to make up for that. They also try to nickel and dime you by not including a lock with your room and making you put a deposit for the key. Breakfast is also 4€ however some nights they have sangria and snacks which is fun. BE WARNED the room only comes with one sheet and a questionable blanket so eather sleep taco style or bring a sheet.

Location is good, the Hostel is in walking distance from all tourist attractions and very close to metro station. The area can be a little sketchy at night though especially around Termini train station. The hostel provided great service and security. They had a camera at the entrance and would unlock the door for guests. A staff member ran all the way down the stairs because he saw a guests bag getting looked though on the street. The staff tries hard to make your stay the best possible :)
