Tiny bathrooms, it's almost impossible to keep the floor and your things from getting wet. No lockers and the security boxes their offer at the reception are only big enough to put your passport in; they keep the valuables people leave them behind the counter, where everybody can see them, and they sometimes have to leave reception for various reasons so anyone could pretty much go and steal them. Kitchen has no microwave and no oven. Wifi only works in the kitchen and in the common room.


The staff at this hostel were really friendly and helpful, however there was very little common space and the shared kitchen did not seem to be working. The bunk beds in the shared dorm were very noisy as was the place in general as there is a restaurant/bar downstairs which never seems to stop. For the cost of accommodation in Rome this is not a bad place, although take note of the party/nosey atmosphere.


extremely nice and helpful staff :) good location, great value for money




Had a pretty good stay at this hostel for 7 nights in a private room. However a few things that were of note were: the kitchen was not well equipped at all (lacking a microwave, oven, kettle and many other simple appliances). Also our room was positioned on the second floor and EVERY night the music from the downstairs club could be heard loudly from 9.30pm until very late at night. Supermarket was close which was great :) Overall was a good stay!


My private room was small & simple, but very clean and well taken care of. Had a safe for valuables. Bar/restaurant wasn't very busy, not great for meeting people, but service was friendly. The only negative was at night someone was smoking in the lobby (I guess normal in Europe), and the smoke came into my room. A towel under the door fixed it for the most part. Just might be a problem for someone very sensitive to cigarette smoke. Overall, it was a great deal and I would stay her again!


We had an amazing time in there, the staff was very kind and helpful and the atmosphere was very happy. I would deffinitely go back.


Staff were friendly and helpful, had clean sheets, fairly clean bathroom, hot water and decent wi fi plus the location was great.
