Hostelworld says:

This fantastic cosmopolitan hostel is situated right in the heart of Rome, close to all the action. All the must-see sights, like the Coliseum, can be reached easily either by foot or using the metro. There are rooms to suit all, from single privates for a bit of peace, all the way up to five bed shared dorms for a little more sociable experience. Although there is a bar where you can meet your fellow traveller, it's not so raucous that you'll be kept from a little well needed rest after a busy day trekking round the city streets.

    A mix between a hotel and a hostel. Close to the main train station. Daily housekeeping. A slight upgrade from any normal backpackers hostel. Nice rooftop terrace and you can free load some internet up there from the neighbours. BEWARE this is the first hostel I've stayed at while traveling for 7 months where they charge you to use wifi. Beware of that. Go to the restaurant across the street. A lot of stairs. Friendly staff.
