The rooms are clean enough, but some of the bathrooms are pretty scummy and the free wifi signal is terrible. However, 2 bucks gives you great wifi for 24 hrs and you can wander around and find the cleaner/newer bathrooms. Also, it's really easy to find from the train station and is close to metro. Overall a pretty good stay for a hostel

This place was great, so much more than we expected for our money. The room was perfect and had everything we needed. Excellent location, quick walk to many sites and to the trains/metro. Would definitely stay here again.

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. Their facilities were excellent. The 5-bed dorm exceeded my expectations. However, as other reviews said it's not a party hostel, but it is still easy to meet people. The breakfast is a bit pricey, but nice to have as an option. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable place.

I did not enjoy my stay here whatsoever, the staff weren't welcoming at all and I couldn't check in until after 3pm! The beds are literally pushed next to eachother that's how close they are, wouldn't reccommend and waaay over priced.

The rating is very low but just for say to people who want to stay : this is NOT A HOSTEL! It's very clean, the beds are very comfy, security is good too but it's not a hostel! There is not a real common room (go there for the free wifi), there is no kitchen and there is no atmosphere at all! You can go there if you want a clean bed and have a quiet night, dont go there if you're a single traveler!

Very nice, very clean. The staff were courteous and helpful, the location is good. Feels more like a hotel than a hostel, but particularly good for a quick visit.

Bathrooms are single bathrooms shared on each floor. Think hotel turned hostel. They were cleaned regularly. Gentlemen at the front desk were of little help, repeatedly gave us room keys to rooms already occupied ( which we saw happen to others 4 more times over the course of our 2 day stay!!!) the gentlemen, if I can call them that at all were incredibly rude with every interaction we had with them. Luckily, upon check out there was a very kind women. Better service for cheaper down the street!

The young man at the front desk was extremely helpful! We were going to have to switch rooms twice, but he was able to get us in the same room for all 5 nights we were there! The shower rooms were very clean and the rooms were extremely spacious. They also had a sink in the rooms which was helpful. Close walk to the Termini train station and everything in Rome. Would definitely stay here again. Poor wi-fi was a the only complaint we had.

Quiet with clean rooms. Very good showers and close to Termini station. Head across the road in the morning for a coffee and croissant in the morning. The breakfast at 8 euro isnt worth it.

This hostel is a refurbished hotel. There were no bunk bed in the dorm room I stayed, had a locker under my bed, flat screen tv in the room, clean shower/toilet across the room. 5 blocks away from Termini, so you can go anywhere walking from there. Only negative thing is you had to pay for wifi. But if you stay more than a day, the 5€/stay was a good deal. Staff was nice and very helpful.

Hostel is more like a hotel than a hostel. All the staff is really nice, close to termini but a little ways from the center and a lot I'd good bars. Common areas close and there is no where to congregate other than rooms when they do. I liked not having bunk beds but having to be in the room to charge something was inconvenient.

Hostel des Artistes is a staple place. The bathroom got quickly dirty after being clean, but by dirty I only mean humid and the floor was a bit wet, some hairs etc. This is not the fault of staff of course. There are plenty of English speakers and they take in a lot of guests so their system is pretty streamlined. Very quiet area surprisingly and 5 minute walk from Termini. The breakfast is 8 euro but is a buffet. Good place but far from sites, close to Termini.

When i left the luggage no body checked that was my bag the one I picked, i could have picked anyone. Internet in 5th floor stop working for a while and I need to buy a 2euros wifi pass. The staff though was very helpful and I think is a good point of this hostal. Very close to Termini station and the restaurant Mamma Di Angela is quite good.

It's like a hotel


51%

6 bedroom dorm very small, beds are right beside one another, no AC I had to switch hostels. This was more of a Hotel and had no kitchen or lounge area. They also lost my booking both nights. Stay somewhere else!


94%

Just adding on to the pile of reviews here, it really is great that it's run like a home. Of course, this means it lacks some nice hostel features, like lockers under the beds, personal outlets, curtains, etc. Also no AC got rough in Rome's summer. Still, a solid choice if those aren't deal breakers.
