The hostel was a short walk from the Castro Pretorio Metro Station and there were a number of places to eat very close to the hostel. The staff were very helpful and friendly! The room was very big (mixed dorm for 3) and very comfortable. There was a TV, a fan and power outlets and lots of storage. There were lockers to store your stuff and toilets and showers down the hall. There was free wifi on level 5 and a lovely terrace on level 6. I would recommend staying here to my friends, very good!

Small lockers and the safe in our room didn't work, as well as both bathroom hairdryers. Internet only on the 5th floor that didn't work either; there is internet you pay for at 2 EU per day that we got for free on our last day though. No air conditioning in the rooms and poor air conditioning in the common room despite it being almost freezing at the reception. Location was a bit far. Seemed too easy to access baggage storage room. No real hostel atmosphere. No kitchen. You get what you pay for

Be advised, when turning the corner and seeing the church at the end of the broken street you may question if you are at the right place. You are. Probably not love at first sight. However behind the 24hr secured doors be ready to be greeted by a great staff ready to serve, a relaxing court yard, and an open bar and breakfast kitchen. When you retire to a clean air-conditioned room, you will be satisfied with choosing this hostile.

Slightly too far away from the city centre and tourist hotspots. Weird atmosphere in the hostel where no one talked to each other except to ask about the wifi which was very poor.

The wifi was incredibly bad, especially when you had to pay for it. Also, regularly woken up by the housekeeping staff early in the morning.

Great location, only a 3-5 minute walk to the main train station. Also close to many authentic italian resturants and a supermarket. Beds were comfy and we had a fan in the room which was great! Shared bathrooms are not ideal but I knew about this before booking and the showers were very nice.

Its not clean floors are not clean rooms are not clean under the bed its dirty. Theres is no handwash soap in the toilet wich to me is disgusting means people go to the toilet and if they didnt brought their soap they cant wash their hands.. Come on its not expensive cheap soap ! Bathrooms floors is just a lake when someone just took a shower. Only one fan for 5 people and the fan cannot turn to get to the fifth person not fair! Couldnt give us two rooms keys but we were two persons..

It was a nice hostel. The staff was accommodating and helpful and the place was very clean. The only thing is that you have to pay for wifi or use the wifi on the 5th floor which doesn't work half the time. The location is sort of far so plan on taking busses if you don't want to walk a lot. Other than that it was a great stay and there are tons of restaurants close by!

It´s like a Hotel, my room had it´s own TV. I was with 2 others. The room was decorated very nice and the bathroom was big and clean. The personal were always very nice. The price is really good for what they offer. Wifi for free is just available on the 5th floor.

Positives: Good location near the major train/bus station, attractions in walking distance. Negatives: Whilst there was no cooking facilities in the hostel, you could have prepared a meal in your room due to the heat and insufficient cooling for a Rome summer. Showers needed a clear, with plenty of old rubbish inside them. Zero atmosphere, as well as slow WIFI that had to be paid for.

Wonderfully friendly, helpful, and accommodating staff, nice easy walk to main train station, safe neighborhood, not too far from plenty of tourist attractions. Would definitely recommend.

Staff was super kind and helpful. Got a free upgrade from a 4-Bed-Dorm to a double room, and the other girl never showed up so I had a room for myself. Perfect location, 5 minutes walking distance from the train station. I saw a mini kitchen with a microwave but I don't think you can cook there (I saw no fridge either). definitely worth the money, would go back!

Booked a six bed mixed dorm and got a two bed mixed "dorm" . The beds were less than half a foot apart which made mine and my roommate's stay rather uncomfortable. This was not what I had been expecting- fortunately my roommate and I could trust each other not to steal anything because there was only one very small safe for us both to keep our valuables in.

There are no air conditioner in rooms. It's definitely hot. Even they say your bed number, people choose their bed randomly so you must go early.

It's one of these hotel and hostel mixed place, charming place, especially its antique left albeit it's control difficulties. The staff was helpful and friendly, hostel was clean, room, wc, and shower rooms are also clean and tidy. NO AC in rooms. There are storage places underneath every person's bed, however there is no in room locker that one can utilized. These lockers are on a separate room and on different floor. Shower, wc are outside of room but aplenty. Lastly, close to the metro.

It was okay for one night, but I wouldn't stay there any longer. The bed was okay but the bathrooms were quite awful (dirty, water everywhere). The location is good but the place seems more like a hotel than a hostel. You probably won't meet people in this place.

No atmosphere at all and the wifi sucks, you pretty much have to pay for it to get a connection. Rooms and location are nice, liked how rooms had a tv with English news on it. Maids made the beds each day even if there was stuff on it they would move it. More like a hotel.
