The desk staff were very unhelpful. When they actually knew an answer to a question, it usually wasn't useful. One night I asked them for a place to eat, and they sent me to the train station food court because they didn't know of any places to eat nearby. The next day I had the best meal of my life at a local, inexpensive restaurant literally two blocks away from the hostel on a street PACKED with great restaurants.

A great value. very cheap hostel with high quality. Remember to bring a lock to lock the locker or you will need to buy a new one. The atmosphere of the hostel is very friendly and location very good.

Next to Rome main train station, so you can get transport to anywhere you want in the city (a week metro ticket is worthy). Room was good.

Excellent location and service. Free kitchen to use and they offer free sangria. They organize lots of activities like party and tours. Staff are always available to help. Good job guys, I recommend.

Location is great for 1st visit, however, I wont stay there next time: photos are much nicer than actual rooms, hair dryer in bath repeatedly stopped working, not enough space in shower, rooms always smelly of shoes and socks, main doors were closed at night and receptionist didn't respond so I ring someone else to open a door for me, keys to our room were repeatedly failing to work and we couldn't open the doors like 5 out of 10 attempts. I believe hostel down the floor is much nicer to stay in

Breakfast wasn't included which was sad, it was available for 4 euro though. They had a well stocked kitchen, one of the best I've seen for a hostel (only half of the stove worked, but it still was good)

Did not spend allot of time around the hostel. Not much in the way of social people aside from the staff during my stay. My stay was during the off season so I am never surprised when this happens. Other then a lack of outlets Near my bunk nothing negative to say.

The lockers were small and did not fit our packs. Relaxed atmosphere, great for first time or seasoned travelers. We stayed in an eight person room and felt like we had plenty of space. Staff was helpful in answering questions and giving directions.

The bathroom (4th floor) really needs repairs, the showers were really bad (water everywhere but over your head, and it got too hot or too cold) and the sink was leaking. The bedroom had a problem with the air condition, but the staff resolved it as soon as we called them, they were really atencious. The bedroom was ok, but the low beds smelled mold. The location looks bad but it's really near the train station, it's easy to go everywhere, even to the airport (buses beside the station).

The only problem was the toilet which become dirty, because it are not cleaned during the evenings, I think they could solve this easily and everybody will stop to complain about it.
