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!


the hostel is pretty good, location perfect atmosphere nice. the room was pretty small but not a real problem


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.


This's a good Hostel to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff. Funny guys and an excellent atmosphere.


The staff in the hostel are extremely friendly and helpful. It makes me feel cozy and not out of place. On top of that, it was also the perfect atmosphere to meet other travellers.


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.

The staff is amazing, always trying to spend a good time with the guest and creating a really good atmosphere in the hostel.


This place was definitely as they say a party hostel which finished by about midnight. Otherwise it's well located and reasonably priced.


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
