Very good location, helpfull staff but cleanliness must be improved!! It's a party hostel, so loud music until midnight, so great atmosphere but do not expect to sleep quietly before midnight!

It's great here. Definitely a hostel to meet new people, and the hostel to be in for an excellent location in Rome. Very close to the metro station and it's quite safe around here. Ivanhoe's got events every day, free pasta, free wine, and party every night to meet fellow travelers in the hostel is so great. Place is clean, free use of desktop computers for internet. Would definitely recommend this hostel and I'd definitely go back here too.

It's a party hostel! You meet fun people from all around the world! Too bad we had a very short stay in Rome and used most of our time traveling. Else, you'd be making friends as well as traveling! Location was brilliant, just (about) next to the metro station, couple of minutes walk and you'll see the Colosseum! 24 hours reception, no joke! These guys would stay awake so that you can have fun 24/7, that's if you're staying for that long though! Definitely recommended!

Great location; not the easiest to find, but people were helpful. They kick people out to clean, which isn't a problem, but it didn't appear to be clean. It says it's a party hostel and it definitely is! I don't party, though, and it wasn't a problem because they all went out around midnight. The staff were nice and very...persistent in getting everyone involved in the party. They made dinner for us one night and that was amazing! Breakfast was cheap and good.

The "party" (just dinner together) ended at midnight - the staff turned off the music and told us to go to our rooms or outside; however, once everyone went to the dorms, the staff started playing their music very loudly and were all talking by the front desk. Extremely hypocritical. And the entire hostel was disgustingly dirty - rust and dirt throughout the bathrooms, and the smell of mold in our dorms. Only plus is meeting other people during the dinner, who we toured Rome with the next day.

Indeed nice place and very friendly staff. I met many other travelers to hang out with. But they really need to work on cleanliness. Specially within the dorms. Blankets much be changed.

Great location in the center of Rome, less than 5min on foot to Colloseum! Termini 10min on foot or one station away. Supermarket close-by, too. Staff was great, super nice and always up for juke-boxing and drinks! Facilities are old, but staff keep them clean constantly! Breakfast for 2€ with cereal, toast, nutella, jam, eggs, jogurt and cookies was totally worth it! Make sure to ask for an extra linen as they do not use any covers for the raw blanket. Will come back any time! Thanks Ali & Co

I could not believe the price. It is SO cheap! And you won't be disappointed. The policy of the hostel is just AWESOME. They offer you free drinks (including champagne, tequila and vodka), the staff is VERY friendly. They are very nice, they talk to you, they try to help you, they give you tips and for the first time I can say: they really encourage you to make new friends and meet new people. The breakfast is also cheap and offer a lot of options. If you want to meet people you will not regret!

first all, I have to say this is the best hostel I have lived in my 1month long euro trip. The staffs are super friendly. Forget about researching what to do in Rome. They will tell you everything you need to do and need to go, right down to the street on the map (partying, eating, sightseeing, you name it). The cleanliness of the place is unbelievable, the cleaning process of the kitchen and the bathroom is continuous all day.

Great location, friendly staffs and most of all, good price! I stayed one weeks in Ivanhoe hostel, and it was a great time. It's very easy to make new friends at there because kitchen and hallways are very cozy and nice. There is ensuite shower room and extra public shower room as well, so you dont have to wait for people. And there is one staff who can speak fluent Korean, he made me so relaxed and happy in Rome!

Probably good for those who look for new college people to meet.But definitely this is not for someone who want to have a nice vacation break. Very very loud aisle but thank god they stop playing the music at about 11 am. but still, you want to have a relaxing day or night, it can be a disaster. Toilet, room, bed, floor of the room..there was nothing that was clean for me to be using without worrying about thr hygene. Very small locker. And there were three lockers for 6 people. lost an adapter

So many Korean stay here. 한국분들 꽤 있으시더라고요 Many people, At night people drink and dance with loud music. It is so nice for outgoing person. 사람도 많고 밤엔 음악 틀어놓고 춤추기도 하고 술도 먹고해서 놀기 좋아하는 분들한텐 최고에요 If you dont want party, you can stay in the room. Though music is heared loudly, It was okay to me. 그게 아니시라면 그냥 방에서 쉬셔도 상관없어요 음악소리가 좀 신경쓰이실 수 있는데 전 괜찮았어요 The location is very nice. It take only 1 stop from Termini station. 위치는 중앙역에서 한정거장! 가까워서 좋아요
