Basic stay in a good location - 5 min to Barberini Metro/bus stops, not even 10 min to Termini station. Easy distance walking to all the main sites in Centro Storico. The rooms and ensuite bathroom are basic, but clean, so if you are looking for a simple stay in center of Rome, this would be it. Haven't tried the breakfast, so cannot judge here, but the common room with the kitchen looked well stacked with utensils and books/guides for an easy stay. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.

Got in late so didn't have much time at the hostel. The staff was very helpful and gave us pointers on tourist attractions. Fairly close to everything! We walked everywhere except to the Vatican. Free breakfast was decent. Wifi worked well. Very quiet and got a good nights rest.

Amazing place to hangout located centrally. The rooms are super clean and so are are washrooms. The staff and special thanks to Mr "Scottish" Danny to make it feel like a home away from home. A few points 1. WiFi is free 2. You get your own set of keys to the main entrance n your room. 3. Get your own lock for the locker. 4. When in doubt as..the staff is super responsive chill n have fun

Great hostel in the centre of the Rome, from where you can access all landmarks by foot. Very clean and tidy (the rooms are cleaned every morning), spacious with a kitchen and a hangout area. You'll get a free wi-fi and breakfast every morning. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Rome.

It is a small but really nice and clean hostel. It is close to most of the main sites of Rome. It has a well equipped kitchen that you can use.

The hostel is in a great location for seeing Rome. Only a 10-15 min walk from the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and Pantheon. Also the free breakfast and wifi is a plus!

Amazing hostel. Staff were incredibly easy-going and helpful. Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable environment. Feels as comfortable as your best friend's super clean apartment you can just hang out in whenever. Bean bags and TV with cable is available. 10 minute walk from Termini, 20 minute walk from ANY sight in the city (40 min to the Vatican). Fantastic place. Daily professional cleaning staff, lockers (bring your own lock!) for your stuff. They will always try to accommodate to needs.

Overall this was a great hostel! I loved the staff and the room was very nice with an ensuite. Free breakfast and safe area is a plus. The walk to termini is very short and the hostel is centrally located in Rome.

Despite the short stay, the overall experience was amazing. The hostel was super clean and with quiet atmosphere . The staff were all nice and helpful and ready to assist whenever possible . Special thanks to Ms. Marwa who was helpful to the Maximum especially with the places to visit and tips on how to get around the city . I would very much recommend the hostel for people who want to spend some good quality time .

Small, basic hostel but very clean and very helpful staff. No real nightlife in the area but pretty much everywhere is walkable and it's a great city to walk around in.
