Pros: great location right by Termini station; walkable to all of the central Rome (the Coliseum is literally 15 minutes away). Bathrooms were clean with huge showers and never smelled bad. Area is a melting pot. Cons: they accidentally cleaned my bed even though I had a few more nights left. I told the front desk people but they just went to my room with me, took down a note, and told me to get a new bed. Just a side effect of not having assigned beds I spose. Also, it's in a grungy area.

It was a good hostel overall the staff were okay could have been more nicier but oh well and I felt safe in the hostel, the bad things were tht it was in a dogy area and people outside were noisy and I couldn't sleep because there was a very loud voice outside coming every 5 minutes but overall it was good.

We booked this hostel last minute. It was very clean and the staff was really friendly and helpful! It was also super close to the train station, near restaurants, and about a 30 minute walk from several historical sites.

Only stayed one night. No complaints, would stay again. Convenient location for late night arrivals/early departures.

Kudos to Kuya Elmer, JM and Jay for being helpful and accommodating. The room is ok but the Filipino staffs are amazing! Thank you very much! :-)

The hostel is a very short walk from the Termini station, but the Termini station isn't exactly close to the tourist sites of Rome. The room was quite nice. Breakfast is 4 euros. It was a pretty nice breakfast. The staff was pretty good and it was easy to get a good sleep. My only complaint was that sometimes the key cards to our dorm room stopped working (this happened to three of my dorm-mates.) Other than the frustrating key cards, I liked the hostel.

I was a little worried about the location of this hostel, but it turned out to be very conveniently between the Termini station (with Metro stop) and the Colosseum/Forum. The hostel itself is not the fanciest, but the facilities were fine and staff helpful. Possibly the best thing was that the bed frames did not squeak when you moved on them!

They nickel and dime you for everything. Instead of just placing your luggage in a room after you check out, they make you put it in lockers for 2 euros. The breakfast costs 4 euros but was pretty average. They accidentally put me in the wrong type of room but made up for it by giving me a free breakfast one morning. The staff was very accommodating and sympathetic. The location was good next to the Termini and was helpful for getting to wherever you needed to go. Sketchy area around though.

This hostel was great because of the location, price and atmosphere, the only thing that I didn't like was that they offered lockers for only 12 hours which unlocked once your time was up so it was hard to find a good time to lock things.
