I would like point out that staff have not heard about breakfast. Except breakfast everything was fine.
The room needs ventilator when it is hot. Refrigerator in the room only lookes nice but it is not working..Place is on the excellent position, nearby Termini station and metro.

We didn't feel very safe getting to the hostel and were mislead by the description of the location. The owner smoked at the main door to the floor we were on and it drifted into our room which was unpleasant. It was too hot in the room to even sleep and on the last night we left much earlier than we anticipated because of the discomfort. I'd suggest at least a fan since the temperatures in Rome are quite hot during the summer.
It doesn't have a hostel atmosphere and the location is in a zone that seems quite dangerous but the staff is nice and is in walking distance to the Colosseo
We enjoyed our stay. Lovely and comfortable room. Friendly caretaker.

The price was too much for what they offered, they have no WI-Fi, that also bothered us a lot, it had just basic stuff
There was breakfast?? Because we certainly weren't offered any at all for all. Inaccurate description, it was at least a 15 minute walk from Termini about 20 to Colosseum. Streets were dodgy along the way at night. The hostel is within a damp housing complex, three steep flights of steps up. The owner gave us a nice enough welcome but mostly he hung out at the stairwell smoking. We had a big room, that and bathroom were clean enough. Can get noisy. NO WIFI. Would spend more to stay elsewhere.
Hostel was quite hard to find at first. There is a small sign next to buzzer stating the name. The area and flats around looked pretty run down. Hostel was three flights up no lift. All through the night you could hear door opening/closing, people shouting outside in the street. Was a decent price so wasn't expecting a luxurious stay.
It's a very cheap hostel in a very expensive city, this is the point about this hostel. The acomodations are okay with a little facilities (like refrigerator in the room and tv). The worst thing in this hostel is that there's no internet.
