Not one of the greatest ones but really convenient as it's right next to Termini Station. Rooms have no air-conditioning, just a ceiling fan, so can get a bit stuffy. My room door had constant issues with the lock not working properly. Bathrooms were clean though with proper hot water. Wifi was constantly down during my stay there, but that's probably just bad timing. Overall, not a place I'd come back to but otherwise not that bad.

Location was good. Showers were cold though, and rooms were extremely hot.

It was hot and dirty. The loud music from the nearby dance club was extremely loud (nightly).

Really cool hostel. The staff are very knowledgeable, help plan your day, and are fun to hang out with. There where many young travelers, like myself, who where staying there so meeting people was very easy at M&J. Its located right in the heart of town so its close to all the sights and restaurants.The 6 person rooms where OK not great, but the 4 person rooms where very good. Definitely would recommend.

Three people had belongings stolen during our stay. The wifi only works in reception and the showers take a while to warm up. The staff were very helpful with giving us tips for cheap plaxes to eat and how to get arouns. I suppose you get what you pay for in terms of facilities.

The loud music from the nightclub next door made it difficult to fall asleep. The single key method for getting into the rooms is very inconvenient,

Great hostel in a great location. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. It's located right next to Termini Station and is only a 30 min walk from some major sights, including the colosseum. Toilets, showers and rooms were kept very clean. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anybody.

Security: Front door open 24/7 wth full access to all floors and rooms. A wallet and an ipad were stolen during my stay! Amenities: only two showers had hot water in the entire building. A 10 euro deposit is required for the key. Elevator is forbidden to use (dorms are on 4th floor). Matresses are covered on a very noisy hard plastic. Staff: extremely rude with a "can't be bothered" attitude. Some shady yuppie-looking black suit men are in and out the building for no apparent reason

It was in an excellent location. However the rooms were very poor. Our door didn't shut, which was frustrating as we had heard of a number of thefts recently. There wasn't much room in the dorms, and the ensuite didn't have hot water. Only one shower, one floor down had decent water temperatures. Good place to explore the city, if you don't plan to stay at the hostel long.

I understand hostels and that they aren't always going to be the "nicest" of places but this one isn't. It is not maintained very well, my room alone looked like it hadn't been touched in awhile. The hot water never worked, water only came out 1/4 of the shower head, I almost broke the sink faucet because it was so loose and the whole place smelled horrible. Like I said, I'm not looking for five-star treatment but the basics as advertised at least.

No lockers in rooms for belongings, no aircon, Mosquitos everywhere while you sleep, cold showers no matter how long you run the sower for also wifi only worked in reception area and wasn't comfortable to sit there, no couches and was really slow.

that hostel very bad but good location. near the termini.

Not bad, but not amazing. A boring location, but everything can be walked to from here. Don't do any of the tours through here, they are a rip off. Same with the pub crawl, not worth it. No WIFI in the rooms, but sort of forces a social experience in the common area. Don't do laundry at the place they recommend unless you like overpriced shrunk and wrinkled clothes. The cafe downstairs is worth the money for breakfast and sandwiches but definitely not dinner. Not bad overall

Badshowers, but beds were made every day, common room was not great for meeting people, but it is in a spectacular location, would recommend just for where it is.

Nice hostel, but the most expensive hostel we've stayed in on our travels and have stayed in much better hostels. Didn't have any towels when we asked, beach is 20 min walk away. Enjoyed and would stay again

Comparing it to other hostels its so average for the price you pay. most showers aren't even hot. Beds ridiculously creaky and shaky. Did not feel that safe on them. Very tiny lockers available so if you have a laptop you are better to carry it yourself. Kitchen was pretty good though. Wifi only work in common room. Location is what this hostel makes reservations from because that's the best thing about it. If your on a budget like me then you just deal with it. It's fine, met some nice people

kitchen can only be used from 15:00 - 22:00. So no beakfast, no lunch and no after Party Snack for you. That's uneccessary and and bad. The staff seemed to be pretty unrelaxed...

The staff was very useful and handed out the needed information. They relaxed the panic and gave the very words of wisdom.
