This was the WORST! hostel we stayed in during our two months trip around Europe. The staff was rude and very pushy when it came to drinking and partying. There was no privacy what so ever since the staff would just wlk straight in to your room without knocking or telleing you why they were there. We had to swap rooms after our first night after having BED BUGS! all over the room. I would never ever stay here again, I rather sleep in the metro or on the street, HORRIBLE!

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.

The staff and atmosphere were the best parts about this hostel. There was nothing that they wouldn't do for you. It's also in a fantastic location (on a quiet street just off a main one). It is very, very close to a metro station, which means you can pretty much get anywhere in Rome. The rooms were pretty squeezy and there was no signage out the front but they are minor things. Just ask somebody in a shop or restaurant if you get lost finding the place.

Great place to go for environment, meeting new people, and partying. Occasional pasta dinners and drink nights included in price.

The staff here was great! Made us pasta dinner and took us out. Its right on a train line but harder to find if you come in late as the trains stop early.

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!!!

The goods: breakfast for 2 euros is worth it and they organize activities every night. The bads: the hostel gets very dirty even with their lockout policy for cleaning the place, wifi only works like half of the day.

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!
