the hostel is well located nad fine overall i guess, but they don't have a kitchen, which is really annoying.

Staff is good. Really. Nas is a cool guy. Beds were average, not very comfy but did their job. Breakfast was ok, even though it was paid (4 euro). Superb location, a 5 minute walk from Termini station. There are some parties run by the hostel, but we didn't join any of them (and we regret it).

Room was really spacious. However it was a little annoying to have to reenter the wifi password everytime it disconnects (which it does by itself sometimes)

Will not recommend this hostel to solo travel. There is not common area to meet people only the bar and in the bar there is noise and you can't really need anyone, there is the roof witch nice but empty.. So I, as a solo travel didn't like the place. The location is near the train station but this is not very nice area. Breakfast not included and expensive. The beds was clean but the bathroom not so match. The wifi was good

1) There is no locker key for the safe box. You have to buy it. Thus, the security is at zero level. 2) It's a dirty place. The cleaning is not regular (and that's for a hot southern city). 3) You will only receive one (1) bedsheet. You can use it EITHER: to sleep ON it (and cover yourself by dirty blanket), OR you'll cover yourself BY it (and sleep on the dirty mattress). Enjoy your choice. 4) Deposit is 5 euro to pay in cash upon arrival (though they'll give it back then).

The hostel was decent overall. Good staff, good room, sizey enough bathroom (we had a private room). The biggest let down was no kitchen (for a hostel???) they asked us to walk "10 minutes" to their sister hostel for a kitchen.... Ahh no. This said, they gave us a fork each to eat our (unheated) pasta we bought, so it wasn't horrible. Bar was OK and absolutely PUMPED on their night outs. Good location - easily walking distance to major sights. We'd stay again.

This hostel was great. The doors in the showers are rediculous though... I am a pretty skinny dude, and there was no way to get in an out of the shower without rubbing my back on the shower wall. There is no clearance at all, because the doors open into the shower. Rediculous. I was in two different rooms and this was the case in both. Good hostel regardless though.

the hostel was easy to find, very good location. upon check in the staff gave me a lot of info how to get to the main sites easily. during the night they have cocktail party at the patio and they also have a party at the bar! then during the morning they serve breakfast at the bar for only 4 euros, i can recommend this hostel to everybody!

it is 8 min walk from Roma Termini station. the staffs were great and helpful. the room that we got was huge! it's more like a hotel rather than a hostel. the toilet and shower were large and clean. the beds were comfy too. lockers were huge. wifi was strong. can't complain much

The pillow wasn't the best, but besides that the place was awesome and Nas at the front desk was super helpful. With it being so close to the train station it was definitely a great choice. Make sure you don't walk towards Alessandro Downtown though, that caused a 30 min. detour for me heading in the wrong way from the station.

Quite comfortable to sleep here. But a bit noise at the night.

luggage room has no lock. No help from the staff if I had to take my heavy luggage up the 3rd floor planned like a rabbit warren. Direction guide to my room was unclear. People smoked pot after 1 am in the shared room. Should have a closing time for guests coming into the hostel.

Overall I think the hostel was good and condition was satisfactory. I will prefer first this hostel for staying in Rome.
