I was very disappointed with this hostel. I know it is written on the website that if you book a dorm you are going to another building close to the main one. The building was 5 minutes walking from the Hotel des Artistes and it was basically 4 hotel rooms that they turned into a hotel. The reception was at the main building, there was no kitchen, no common room, nothing. Just rooms and ONE bathroom! every morning and evening you have to queue if you wanna use the toilet or shower. NOT recommend

Very friendly and helpful staff. Hostel was clean and quiet, close to termini and a metro stop. With a food store right next door. Safe was practical and bathrooms were spacious. I will recommend to any who go to Rome.

The hostel is situated quite close to the metro stations, however it doesnt' feel like a hostel. it's more like a hotel converted to hostel. I didn't have the breakfast (8 euros)so can't comment. There's a bar/cafe right outside and they serve cappucino + croissant @ 1.5 euros which is a sweet deal. U have to pay for towels, wifi etc. which is bad. There's a common room at the top floor with free wifi though... I bought a SIM card instead. Hostel WIFI is not good (one of the other guests told me

You have to pay for wifi, which doesn't work very well. The wifi they provide for free in common areas is so bad it isn't worth trying. I usually don't care about cleanliness, but the bathrooms were the dirtiest things I have ever seen. The floors were covered with mud, hair, and water. The toilets were disgusting. The hostel room only had a fan to cool off so it was the hottest, most miserable nights ever. I'm usually not picky with hostels, but I regret staying here so much.

Nice rooms, comfortable beds. Didn't like how you have to slam the doors to close them.. that was a nice wake up call every morning.

Not a really helpful staff regards exceptional situations (I had to pay a room for 3 that I booked even if my friends have their flight cancelled because of the fire in the airport of Rome), they didn't even try to understand the situation! Plus the price of the private 3 beds room with shared bathroom was really expensive compare to other hostel around the same area. I am not recommended it.

It is actually a hotel with a dorm room inside. They weren't bunks, but proper beds, but the atmosphere was a little weird as a result. The only common area was a room with vending machines. Not really a hostel vibe.

Great stay in this hostel. The beds/rooms were perfectly clean and organized. Close to Termini station, so you need to walk a bit for sightseeing but that was not a problem to us (eg: 15mn to Piazza della Republica, 30mn to Colosseo). There is also a small pizza shop, a supermarket and many restaurants nearby if you don't want to leave the area in the evening. Would definitely recommend.

I just stay one night but the room was quite ok, the only thing the bathroom, quite old and not so clean. You must know they have severals buildings in differents streets so probably you won't stay in via villafranca but not far from it.

I was recommended to this hostel by a friend mostly because of the location. She had said that everything else was as to be expected from a hostel. It was nice to not have to pay very much, but considering I was in it for the location, it wasn't even all that close to the train station and there was no possibility of walking anywhere. The only good thing was that we always knew we could take the route back to the station and end up back.

Need to improve the hot water at shower room.

This was a nice hostel. The staff were kind and the dorm looked really great. It actually looks like a hotel instead of a hostel. It is also very well located since it's very close to Temini. The only weakness I could say is that bathrooms are not clean.

Very good hostel great localization, near city center!!

Great value for money, bedrooms at hotel-level standard. Bathrooms could do with a bit of a cleanup, but nothing a pair of flip-flops can't handle! The location is excellent, especially for the price!!! One thing to keep in mind, is that this place is a hotel so the 'hostel environment' & common room are missing, as well as the casual/friendly staff service.

10 minutes walking from Termini and 2 from the metro closest station. The beds are made everyday and it is very clean. The bathrooms are ok. The only bad thing is the door which are not very isolated
