It was a great hostel to stay at. It was a little quiet when we were there, but that is what we wanted. I think at other times of the year it is louder.

Great location, quite and super clean hostel. The room for 4 was huge and the ensuite bathroom nice and very clean. not a large breakfast, but enough to start the say. Great value for money. I'll be back there next time i visit Rome

Great location and very clean. Because the rooms are spread over 3 floors, I missed the usual hostel interactions with other travellers. But I will stay there again on my next visit.

The breakfast was a bit "meh," but it was free. Everything else was really good.

This was the best place I could have stayed at for my first trip to Rome. The staff was tremendous, especially Marwa who helped so much as far as suggestions on where to eat, as well as where to explore off the beaten path. This was really refreshing because sometimes at hostels there can be a sort of a "get in and now leave me alone" sort of feeling from the staff. Not at all like that here. Terrific place and most of the other guests were really cool as well.

I had a great time in La Controra, staff was awesome, they helped order pizza and drinks a few times, great recommendations and even took us out to karaoke (if that's your thing). Other guests I met were great and there's just a great vibe about this place. It was all I expected and more.

There were lockers provided in the shared room but I wished they installed hooks inside or beside the locker. The washroom was beautiful and the people in the hostel were really friendly.

I am a first time hostel guest and selected this hostel because of the great reviews and amenities at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone wanting a great place to stay that is very clean, free breakfast, and great staff. The hostel is located very close to Termini Station which allowed us to take the bus and metro very easily. They also were very flexible and helpful with our check-in and check-out times.

A quite hostel on a quite street. I stayed with my girlfriend in a 4 bed room for 5 days or so and loved it. People were nice, facilities were clean and location was good. Not much else I can ask for really. I would stay again. They must have a deal with the local grocery where they buy their old bread.
