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.

The only problem I had with Ivanhoe was that they would take us out on a pub crawl every night which was fantastic but kick us out of the hostel from 11-4pm each day. despite this it was a great hostel with a party vibe.

Such a nice surprise! The hostel had such a good vibe and all the staff are so friendly!! The free pasta nights and free drinks nights are so good and get everyone out and ready to party!! And then if you dont wanna go out, everyone leaves at 11pm and the hostel is super quiet which is also good. Only the showers are a bit gross but all in all a good little hostel

At first, compared to the pictures the hostel wasn't what i thought it would be. Very small and there wasn't much of a common area. I booked a 15 bed dorm (triple bunk beds) and I'd recommend booking the 9 bed dorm. No lockers in the 15 bed dorms either. The kitchen had standard facilities that you'd expect. The bathroom/toilet area was always dirty and very old. However, aside from this, you can get used to it and when you make friends you warm to the place. Good location for Roma Termini.

The only thing cool about this place is the people it attracts. It's was so dirty and not well kept. I'm an easy going kid and didn't mind living in such filth, but payed double what is was worth. Had a blast but may or may not have gotten bed bugs

I stayed for one night and it was the greatest night in Rome! Went out with hostel staff and guests, had a lot of fun! The hostel itself had all necessary facilities and is in the heart of Rome very close to Colosseum and other nice spots!

Didnt enjoy stay here no key was given so had to buzz in every time meaning anyone cause buzz in, no locks on doors, no lounge everyone is just laying in the hall way. Not clean and one member of staff was extremely rude. Dont recommend!

Most of the staff are very friendly, only one let down the rest of them, he seemed to be fed up with dealing with young backpackers who are obviously there for a good time. Everything else was sound, the bathrooms could use some improving and sometimes the quilts were a little spiky

I stayed here last year and stayed there this year again because of the atmosphere and all the bonus things you get out of this hostel. The breakfast is excellent for 2 euros...they had a pasta night on the Tuesday I was there where they made some delicious pesto pasta...they took everyone out to party at 11pm each night so if you wanted sleep it was possible after 11 (but why youd want that in Rome is beyond me...). Great time!!! See you guys again next year!!
