The check-in was very confusing as there are about 20 different hostels in the same building, but once you get the hang of it everything is fine. It's very secure, as there is a receptionist refusing entry to anyone who isn't staying there. Location is a bit out of the way but the transport in Rome is so efficient it's not a problem. There isn't much of an atmosphere but along the same street are a few bars that are good for a couple of drinks, 'Yellow' is definitely one I would recommend


The people that worked there were cunts


Water barely trickled out of the shower and we didn't have hot water for the first 36 hours.

Location is right next to shopping district if you are looking for that (and near the Spanish Steps). Hostel is family owned, a few rooms and a couple bathrooms that everyone shared. One key per room, and the owner appears very stringent on leaving/re-entering (despite the fact that the keys open everything). Nice guy but a little overzealous in making sure we were in the room or not around. WiFi barely reaches the far room. It is a place with a quiet bed, that's it, don't expect more.
