They charged us 21 euros extra under the name of tax! It wasnt added to the total amount of payment so we were very surprised. The bathroom was dirty and the air conditioner is 5 euros per night. DO NOT STAY IN THIS DISHONEST PLACE

The hostel was fair in general, good value for money, very clean and quite modern rooms. However, I would like to mention one thing: air conditioning costs 5€ extra per day, which is in fact simply masking a higher room price, considering the temperatures in Rome in summer.


The room was clean, simple, and very close to Termini train station. All as advertised. However, the man who greeted us was quite rude upon check-in (though in all fairness he was kinder later on). My party consisted of two early-twenties American women and we never felt completely safe or comfortable after that.

Very friendly staff, and eager to help and lots of knowledge on the local transport which helped us a lot as backpackers! Was a bit noisy in the street outside at night but depended on which room you stayed in. Staff made a good breakfast for 3 euros! As girls we were happy with how clean it was. Would recommend this place to backpackers on a budget. Was very chilled out atmosphere and security was good.

Very nice room, hotel style, there is a mini fridge in the room, the air conditioning is 5 euro extra for night, the staff was very helpful and kind. you are not allowed to use the kitchen and the breakfast is 3 euro extra for person. Well located, near the main train station terminus, and from the bus shuttle for the airports. Definitely recommended.


The b&b was really good and clean. Dont expect any luxuries, but in general everything is just what you need if you go with friends or couple. The staff is not as kind as I woulded like, I didn't receive any recomendations, they are just there for the business, but its ok.
