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

Nice hostel, worth what you pay. Staff very friendly and helpful. I just had some problems with the lockers, because they are don't enough, so I've had to put my things in another room for a couple of days.

The kitchen was tiny, barely room to move. Often had to wait for facilities as there simply was not enough. Bathroom was disgusting, has to mop after your own shower. Hair, dirt, and grime was everywhere. Considering the hostel kicks patrons out for 5 hours a day to clean, I( which is ridiculous) it's not clean at all. The hostel claims to be a party hostel but after midnight you are kicked out or sent to bed and unable to use facilities such as kitchen computer wifi etc. (wifi barely works)

We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come here again, we should have stayed longer. Great place to meet people even in the off season. Perfect for predrinking and everyone seems like they want a night out. Only downsides are i was told to go to bed at a party hostel and some staff members were a bit rude - others were really nice and helpfull though.

I had really great days ever while I was staying in Ivanhoe Hostel. Staffs were very helpful and friendly. It seems like they really care about their guest not only just as a customer but also as a friend! Also, I really liked the atmosphere there as well. For the atmosphere,it was really party party as like they have already mentioned on Hostel world which was really enjoyable. But they are really strict when it comes to a security and sleeping time (12 a.m.) I would say they are the BEST!

Staff and location great. Had to rent own lockers and bring own keypad. Bathroom pretty dirty around 8pm-10pm when everyone has their showers. I didn't have a good time there. Others staying there were not very considerate. Came in late, made lots of noise etc so rated terrible atmosphere.

Not the best hostel around, Stayed here for 3 nights. Ye had a good time but they kick you out the hostel at 11-4, They turn the wifi off and basically force you out the room. There is no common room, we had to put a table in the hall so we all could sit down. There is a kitchen but for 2 people at the most. 'Party Hostel' Its not really at 10 o clock they tell you to be quiet.

Very good place to be even not reckoning the price since the atmosphere and staffs are great. They are kind and friendly. By adding the extraordinary price, it would be the best choice

The hostel is not very good because the facilities and cleanliness are very poor. The place is old and not well maintained. The quilts are not changed in between guests and no linings are used to cover them, so guests end up sleeping with the same quilt that previous guests have used. There are not enough lockers for all the guests (4 lockers in a 12 bed room). The place is small and crowded and there are not enough toilets and showers (which are not very clean). The breakfast is good and cheap.

The hostel is too small for so many people! Too many people in the rooms ( Wich leds not having space for your stuf and to a lot of mix smells) and in the kitchen, wich is well equiped but small for the number of guests. Anyway..is clean, you can leave you baggage and it's very close to Coliseo.

Everything was pretty good, but when you're travelling for almost 2 years you get tired and just want to relax in a lounge. There's no lounge here and you get kicked out between 11-4 so they can clean. They say it's a party hostel but I saw a guy get kicked out of the hostel and onto the streets on a Saturday night because he turned the music up. Other than that it's pretty good way to save money.
