I was Very positively surprised of the nice atmosphere you had in the hostel. The only minus was the lack of the kitchen. Special thanks to reception staff! I felt that you guys where taking a great care of me! I was travelling alone, and felt a bit unsafe in this kind of huge city as Rome.. When I went to meet a new friend of mine,you promised to make "everything-is-fine" -call. :) thank you! I hope we'll see again!

The wi-fi is the worst ever!!! And also the PCs for rent at the lobby are slow and stuffed with virus. Forget the internet. The shower's box have leaks that leaves the bathrooms floor all wet, wich spreads to the room while people walk throught. But, the beds are new and good, and have a nice individual light each.

The place was great. I only stayed one night in a room with seven other people. They, like me, were students and I enjoyed their company. The room was clean and the wi-fi worked. Note that you need to use the key card to turn the lights on in the bathroom. I plan to stay there next time I'm in Rome.

Only one sheet for every bed. Everyone was told that the quilt is very clean while no need to have a sheet between you and the quilt...

An american "nerd" guy at the reception don't like italians, seems like they are "B citizen" for him... (shame!) This is an average hostel close to stazione termini, no more... no breakfast, no common places, no coffee machine, expensive partys (25 euros!!) and bad vibes :)

Best hostel i've been to, by far. The rooms of the hostel are in a different building than the Bar and reception, just crossing one street, but the room is really well decorated, the bathroom is quite big, you always have hot water on the showers, plus you can use lockers for free (take your own lock). The breakfast is 4 euros but it's buffet like, with cereal, bread and ham. Great price-quality. Recommended!

actually the best hostel I have stayed in so far - the only thing to improve would be to have more bathrooms available and maybe a better breakfast

The place was ok but nothing great. No laundry facilities and the bag area where bags are held before/after your stay is unsecured. Some staff members were great but others were extremely sleazy and unhelpful. Wouldn't stay there again.

Stayed here for the 2nd time and still very satisfied. Staff is friendly, speaks excellent English, knows what they're doing and check who enters the building. I still don't get their sheets system, you get one linen per bed only?! This time had a room right above the bar (room 12) which got noisy until ~1am on Thursday (bar night), just in case you wish to sleep. Recommended!

This hostel was great to stay at! it didn't have an amazing environment to meet people, and the tours and pub crawls/ nights out were not on the days that we were staying so I was a little disappointed by that. The hostel is very clean and nice, every bed has its own light (it makes a difference) and there is free wifi in the rooms (though it is spotty and annoying to log in every time, it works). Really great price too. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Rome!

Close to the central terminal but not much more like sightseeing or shopping. Nice with a in-house bar with cheap drinks and regular arrangement of social events like pub crawls (I missed them though). The common area is the room with the bar but there isn't much more to do there but eat a served breakfast (no kitchen area) or drink in the evening. I did not care for the amount of bed sheats though. You only get a pillow case and a bed sheet, nothing for the blanket so EVERYONE 'share' those!
