5 min walk from Roma Termini and about a 30 min walk to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon. Room was large and spacious but drafty at night. Room did have a heater but it was a bit loud. Good restaurants around the corner. Also, the WiFi was sketchy at times.

A good hostel factory for tourist in Rome.

It was functional and the bed was comfy. The room was dingy and you couldn't open the shutters to let in any light. The bar only accepts tokens, which I didn't like. However, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the location is good, being right near the train station and the bus station. It's Rome, so it was always going to be expensive, but it's still too much pay for the standard of room given.

Well located in terms of facilities but not in term of Atmosphere. In any case a very good solution for saving money and visit a so nice city. Staff always lovely.

It's a very good place to stay during a trip. Near Rome central train station and good restaurants, the hostel is located in a quiet Rome street.

Not a bad hostel, location seems like a dodgey area, I'm a tall guy so I didn't have any trouble. The atmosphere was pretty average, the bars not the best and the roof terrace was closed. The rooms are ok, but our shower door wouldn't close so the floor got soaked every day. Decent breakfast. All in all, decently priced and not too bad a walk to the main attractions.

The bathroom smelled horrible like canal and it has a huge crystal window facing the garden (people outside could see you), the blankets weren't clean. They control the heaters and turn off and turn on to 15 degrees so cold!! for winter time.!! Never again come back there.

Really nice hostel very close to Termini, medium sized lockers in the dorm room, didn't join the pub crawl but there was some atmosphere, definitely recommended. Booked here again for future stays.

Great hostel. The rooms were clean, nice facilities - very spacious. I admit, it would've been a tad better if they had included breakfast, but to be honest it was much nicer to get breakfast out at a small cafe in Rome anyhow. The bar is a bit of a weird one. They use their own tokens - which seems to be an excuse for them to abandon the bar unless you search staff out to get a drink. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend a stay here, if I return to Rome I will likely book here.

It is a shame there is no lounge / chill out area to meet people, only the bar, which is not very appealing during the day and for those looking to travel on the cheap, there is no kitchen to prepare anything. Hostel was really clean, I have rated the facilities as poor because one of my friends had the top bunk bed fall onto him in the night.

Extremely courteous staff and nicely furnished rooms. Location is amazing - 5 minutes walk from the central railway station as well as metro station which has direct connection to Vatican. There are good vegetarian (Indian) eateries around 8-10 minute walk from the hostel. The hostel also has a 4-Eur continental breakfast which is worth the money. Bring your own padlock which is decent in size otherwise you might end up paying 5 Eur for padlock purchase like we did.

Of course, this hostel is not a "Palace" but it's a very nice hostel that I found clean. It has a dedicated bathroom for each room which is nice. Nothing to complain about here expect the guy who snored all way through the night in our room :-)

Good location walking distance to the train station. Also walking distance to all the sights if you are a long walk kind of person. The map provided is adequate and the overall cleanliness and security is great.
