Very close to Termini station, about 15 min from Coliseum on foot. Breakfast (croissant and coffee) is included, it was in a separate building and wi-fi was only at the cafe which was not very convenient. The room was very very simple, just beds and a table. No design, just painted walls and tile on the floor. Bathrooms were not very clean. In our room there were some insects, we do not know what are they, as they did not disturb us - ok. But the price was really good, just to sleep.


The people is kind, but the room was not clean and it doesn't have wifi, to be conected it was necessary to go to the restaurant which is crossing the street, that was really uncomfortable.


Hostel is located literaly 3 min from Termini station. Next day we have train at 6 o clock so that was great for us. City tax in Rome is high so keep in mind to ad it to your budget,

The apartments were very gloomy and dark, although the rooms were large and the linens were clean. Bathrooms were dirty and poor. There was no internet in the accommodation itself. Guests had to walk to the restaurant/reception a few buildings away to use free internet. On a positive note, the staff were friendly and helpful. Food at the restaurant was delicious. Superb location.


This is not a hostel, it's more of a pension. The rooms and bathroom are ok but there is no Wifi at all. The breakfast is good and location is great.


Its a Great Hostel... But Please Wi-Fi in the Rooms...


The rooms were ok , but the staff was really unfriendly. Receptionlounge and breakfast área aré two blocks away from the rooms and there si no internet anywhere except from the bar. It si okey but Italia not cheap for what it si.


We had a really comfortable stay there in Hostel Vacanza. The location is great, just around 100m to the railway stations. The staff are very friendly. They offer FREE traditional Italian breakfast (croissant & coffee) as well. It's safe because the hostel only provides private rooms. I must say the hostel is really value-for-money!

Lower service for lower money. But the location is very good so we are happy with this hostel.


The staff are very helpful especially for first comers to Rome. The pizza and spaghetti are also surprisingly dilicious.

It's a perfect place if you have to spent one night in a business trip. Isn't the place to spend a romantic weekend. The bathroom was broken. But the hostel is located at 1' from the central station by feet!! The staff was really kind. The hostel and the restaurant are located in two different places, but they are not so distant (300 m) and the restaurant is nice.

We took the hostel for the last night before running to the airport to catch a morning flight. We did not see any "charm" of the hostel but were looking for a quite bed to stay in out last night. Be aware that the fan maks just noise and for the aircondition the owner asks for another 10 Euros. Hostel is well located but stuffy and quite noisy


This was the worst hostel that I´ve been in my life. The owner is very stupid and don´t try to explain the things in English. She also speaks in Chinese all the time with her son in front of the clients and they speak about then. HORRIBLE!!


I have put in security poor because a thief follow me and he enter in the hotel, he was a man from Bangladesh or India, i don't know, Rome is full of this people! A man of security helped me. well, the hotel is good, but i don't like the restaurant and the wi fi is another place, a 100 meters from the hotel. The room is ok. ;)
