Hostel poorly located. Staff not prepared! Hired a night tour, I was not properly informed about the meeting point. I tried to cancel or go the other day, the employee was not been dedicated to solve my problem. I lost 20 euros. Would not return and would not recommend this hostel. Hostel mal localizado. Equipe não preparada! Em tour noturno, não fui informado sobre o ponto de encontro. Tentei cancelar ou ir no outro dia, o funcionário não mostrou-se dedicado a resolver o meu problema.

Staff was very nice with us, the room and the bathroom were all clean. The people in the room I stayed were also very nice. The only thing that I didn't like is that if you need to leave your luggage in there before check in or after check out you need to do it in a totally open storage room, without lookers, where you just enter and leave your stuff in shelves. Nobody from the staff seems to check the room and so anyone could do whatever they want with your stuff

Very good location, common place where you can meet people all over the world, kitchen for use, room to leave your your bag for free; very nice and helpful staff!!. In addition, the common bathroom was very clean (hairdrayers inside), all rooms were cleaned every day. they don't have policy with "age limit" which is a plus.In general - nothing to complain, just highly recommended!!!

Some of the staff members were not as friendly as it should be expected. Rooms are not that big for 8 beds. Overall, it is not a bad place to stay.

First off this was the first time staying at any sort of Hostel. It was perfect for what i needed for sure. From my daughter's point, as she has been staying in your hostel all over Europe. She said it was the worse one she had stayed in. There is no doubt a newer facility would be nicer for your travelers maybe with a bar attached. However I personally would return their anytime in the future with the place not changing. Only issues the wifi was weak at times and would not work in the rooms.

Decent hostel. Close to everything, but bad neighborhood. I only stayed for one night and never went outside the room. Instead I enjoyed the company of the two beautiful girls with whom I shared the room :D

Staff are helpful and location to Termini is great. The room was cleaned very well everyday. The kitchen available was not meant for guest use. You are able to boil water with the equipment but not much more.

Decently situated in a good location. Two minutes away from Termini train station. About 20min walk to the Colosseum. Some staff workers were greatly helpful.

Downtown hostel is well-located as just 1 minutes walk to the Termini station. There are many restaurants nearby and the shop mostly close at around 10 pm. Therefore, there are choices for you to look for foods if you are hungry at night. The staff is really helpful and they have 24 hours reception services.

Very convenient place to stay if you enjoy walking everywhere, it was 10 mins from train terminal (Roma Termini), 20 mins from colosseum. I stayed in a 6 people room and had no issue at all.

The place is clean, the location is awful, the staff were rude. Dont want even spend more than 10 seconds to review it, really disappointing.

The hostel is conveniently placed but the staff is pretty rude. The rooms are nice and we met some wonderful people in our room. Overall, a good place to stay in Rome but never pay for the breakfast. You can find pastries and coffee for much for cheaper and they'll taste a lot better.

Paid breakfast comes with apportioning of 2 ham and cheese. But overall nice breakfast.
