That really was a party hostel! Dr. Dave was a great guy, who showed us nice pubs in Rome. During day time we went to see colosseum, vativan etc. And,the location was the best, like the colosseum was just few blocks away. At evening and night we had a great time with other hostel guests and staff. If you are planning to rest and only see the sights in Rome, you should pick another place, but if you feel that you want to have a good party and get to know other people, this is just right place!

My stay at Ivanhoe was simply great. Dave is the best. If you are looking for party, this is the place. If not, just don't go there. I would suggest to improve WiFi and internet connection (was fine, but sometimes it was intermittent). Thank you guys for the great stay.

If you like party 24/7, and like playing beer-pong and like people playing beer-pong just outside your door with loud music, and don't care of if the staff only speak indonesian, and though you asked the staff to fix you broken bed and they don't, and if you feel comfortable leaving your stuff in your (payed) private room without being able to lock it and during check-out being asked for your key which you did not get because 'why would you need a key here?', then this is THE place for you.

Dr. Dave is the man to get you to the party! Awesome atmosphere!

The kitchen is good, but wifi never works. Also, it is SO dirty, and music is really loud from the afternoon till night. Bathrooms and disgusting. I wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone.

This is honestly the best hostel I've stayed in! As a female solo traveller this hostel was the perfect place to meet people. Every night the staff hold an event whether it's free pasta dinner or drinking games, where you can meet everyone from the hostel. And then the staff take you to some awesome bars to party w the whole hostel! And if you wanna sleep everyone has left by 11pm so you can. The staff were super friendly that you feel like family! Also so close to the colosseum!!!

Close to Colossem and Trevi Fountain and 15 minutes away from the main center where most of the bars and clubs are located. They offer wifi and free dinner and drinks everynight and the food is good tho. The staff is gentle and friendly, offers free maps with good description of the city and brings people out to bars, clubs or icecream. Cleanliness could be improved but still a good standard for just a hostel. Bring your own lock and ask for extra pillow. Highly recommended.

The staff of this hostel is very friendly and welcoming . We got very warm welcome by the staff . We're asked the welcome drink and provided with the essential information about the city . Besides it , the parties organized by the hostel whether its in the hostel or outside every evening made us acquainted to many fellow travellers . Its one of the best party hostel I've ever been to.

Its one of the best party hostel I've ever stayed in . The staff is extremely helpful. Arranging get together parties every day by the hostel gives a special rank to this hostel . Beside it , The certain timetable of the parties and other stuff organised by the hostel make the staying of everyone very easy and comfortable.

Over all is fine, It is located in a old building, Walkable distance to Colosseo! If you stayed in the mixed dorm, then the toilet and showroom is next to the reception, that means u could be watched by everyone. And they provide free pasta in the night, that is pretty nice!

My stay at Ivanhoe Hostel was great. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The rooms and facilitates were well kept and the entire hostel had a great vibe along with a great price. Breakfast can be purchased for 2 euros each morning, the breakfast provided a great start to every one of my days in Rome.(the cake they provided in the morning is REALLY good) I would highly recommend Ivanhoe hostel to any traveler, the staff go above and beyond to make your stay as fun and comfortable as possible.

Had way more than expected!! Free Wifi, free access at their computers, free drinks and food!!! The staff has been really friendly and accomodating, always joking with guests and making sure they were having a good stay. The kitchen is a great extra even if unneeded as they made dinner for the whole hostel but the fridges helped keeping our food chill tho. The bathrooms were a bit dirty (specially during the party) but nothing exaggerate. Highly recommended!

The staff have a good sense of humor and know that most of their hostel gowers are going to be young adults travelers and cater to this fact. As a photographer, i travelled with all my photography gear + laptop and at no point did i feel like my gear was at risk of being stolen while sleeping in the 15 room mix. Ace. The lock out at could be changed to shorter hours i.e. 11AM - 2:30PM. This is a perfect to meet fellow travelers from all over the world. Book it.

It's a bit of a walk to the main sights, although the metro is very close which makes it easy. I had no troubles with security, and there was free spaghetti or drinks on alternate nighs which made it good to get to know people :) the lockout between 11 and 4 is a bit rough though. Let's the hostel down a bit.
