No locker to put your whole luggage. Only small ones that you can keep wallet or sth. And tax is not included. 2 euro per person per night should be paid on arrival.no kitchen. Light does not work until night. Yes you have to brush your teeth in the dark in the morning. Everything else is all awesome. I liked quality of the bed and cool dudes from reception. And they are happy with luggage you leave after check out. There is a lock on the luggage room and security camera too!
Staff were helpful and really nice, the breakfast next door was awesome and so cheap
It was annoying not being able to ask for suggestions here because the hostel has affiliations with both a tour company and restaurant so they will always just direct you there...
The wi-fi doesn't work in bedroom and they are not friendly,

It's reasonable for the price!! The facilities are not so good. There is only one toilet in 8 mix dorm, so we should wait until other guys come out.. Also, because the bed is not determined, people just use any beds which look free. So I was really doubtful it they change the blanket.
The hostel is located close to the train terminal and a metro which makes coming and going very easy. They were awesome about us leaving our bags when we showed up early and when we checked out before leaving. We had a 4 bed room with a bathroom and it was perfect for us. Plenty of outlets for all 4 of us to charge things. Great little restaurant next store The Bramble Bar, which gives a discount for guests. Staff was helpful with directions, maps and suggestions. Would totally recommend!
Was expecting more after reading reviews and comparing between other hostels. Not a bad hostel, but fairly average. The pub crawl was about the only benefit to staying at this hostel. Make sure you bring a battery pack for your phone unless you want to hang out in the lounge to charge it every night.
Good hostel with nice staff close to the Roma Termini. Has pub crawls, decent beds and a great breakfast/dinner deal at the restaurant next door. I'd definitely stay here again.
Very efficient and experienced staff, great party vibe and excellent options for meals with Brambles Bar & Kitchen next door. Really appreciated the €4 breakfast next door in the morning! Excellent location right by Termini station makes for easy and quick transfers to the airport. Accommodation and bedding is simple and dated but adequate for the price. Thanks!
Was only there for 1 night so bear that in mind when reading this review. I was told to choose any bed that looked free in the room and so I did. Turns out the hostel staff have no way of knowing which beds are free and in this case had accidentally cleaned another guys bed which I was now lying in. He very rightly (and slightly creepily) kept telling th staff that this mistake meant he could have gotten into bed with me in the middle of the night without knowing!
This was my least favorite hostel in a while, but didn't have a lot to choose from in Rome booking at the last minute. There is pretty much no hostel community scene here - felt much more like a hotel, which I hate. There is no common area or kitchen where you would typically meet fellow travelers. Everything is centered around the bar and the hostel clearly wants you to buy drinks/pay too much money for a pub crawl they run twice a week. If that's your thing, I guess you'd like it. I did not.
it was a good stay, the guys who work at the desk is friendly and helpful. facilities are good, and breakfast is very great! location was perfect, easy find and connected to the train station. the bar inside offer cheap drinks. the party they organized was great. i will definitely recommend to stay here!

Very clean. Bit of a dodgey neighborhood but there are always other tourists about. No kitchen or common room but the bar area is great. Met a lot of really cool travelers while staying here. The staff was unbelievably nice and welcoming. Nas is the man. Cant beat this price for what you get anywhere else in Rome
hostel is well located, 3 blocks from the train station. breakfast worth for the price. staff are friendly and fun. they served cheap cocktails on the bar, and the luggage room is free. nice rooms & clean bathroom.

Inside the room, thin and small wood cabinets are provided as "safes", and mine had a gap on backwards. Staff were not much helpful and rude many times.They offered a discount for a restaurant, and the whole food was horrible: burned bread, extremely sour pasta, bad wine, and slow service - and I usually don't care on services, but the package was whole horrible. The bar was good, but they did an awful pubcrawl with horrible places - everyone agreed. Good aspect: close to the main station.
The bathrooms are extremely dirty and the showers do not work well. The sheets are not clean. But the staff was nice and the location too.
Its a very big hostel but besides that, staff are helpful when you need. It has a good location, close to termini station. If you want to stay close to The station, This is The place to spend The night.
Alessandros was pretty cool, the bar downstairs is great for happy hour and meeting people, good vibes. The location is ok it's near Termini but a bit of a walk to the sights, security and cleanliness were good and the staff were friendly, would stay again!
