It was such a great located and clean place. Marco was very helpful and kind. Hotel is just 20 metres away from metro station. Additionally, most of the historic attractions are in walking distance. I would definitely go there again.

Great place to stay! Quiet, clean, and a good alternative to loud party hostels. Marco was extremely helpful. The only thing I would improve is that there was no air conditioning or fans in the room, and Rome gets really hot, so the nights were a bit uncomfortable when trying to sleep... Especially since we had to keep the window open and my friend and I are irresistible to mosquitos. Overall, it was a lovely place and I highly recommend it!

Staff is awesome. Extremely helpful, great spot near the Ancient Roman sites. I make regular trips to Rome and had to try a new place this trip. Rest assured I have found a preferred spot.

Amazing place, place and people. Marco was beyond helpful and gave us great suggestions for places to eat. The location couldn't have been better. We walked to the first corner went to pull out the map and glanced to left and there was the colosseum! A wonderful time. Thanks Marco!

We spent just one night but found everything we needed, not far from Otello metro stop & St. Peter's. We booked online very last-minute (within hours of arrival), but staff were ready for us and available to check us in right away. Strong wi-fi, very hot water (shower had its own water heater - had to turn it way down!), cable TV, and on a quiet street. The door/walls may be a bit thin - when another guest came home we could hear them quite clearly - but that was the only peep we heard.

Marco was incredibly helpful with recommendations for food and sightseeing. Breakfast is light and the location isn't centrally located for the city. However, a great stay with extremely helpful staff!

Location is amazing - you can walk to all of the main sites in under 30 minutes and the only time we talk the Metro was to the Vatican (€3 return). Marco was so helpful when we arrived and pointed out good bars and restaurants, and the local area is fantastic - far less touristy and a great range of bars where the locals go. Also has a kitchen with fridge and we bought things for lunch and made sandwiches with saves a lot of money. Would definitely recommend to friends and stay again!

very nice hostel!


74%

The hostel is 2-minute walk to metro station and receptionists are friendly to offer advice on traveling and food. One thing is that the heating system does not work in our room. The receptionist failed to help us deal with it. The other is that the facility is not good enough. It is more like a B & B, rather than a hostel. Having said that, it is recommended in general.

Really good location. 5-10 min by foot to the Colosseo or the Metro station. Nice area, without tourist crowd. Marco is a really nice host that gave us many good adresses. The kitchen and the microwave are useful for snacks, or even to warm up some food. The room is cleaned everyday (floor of the bathroom as well)..

The location was absolutely fantastic, loads of great bars around and not overpriced tourist places. room was clean and Marco was very friendly and helpful, only downside was waiting around a little bit when we arrived. The place felt very safe and secure, however one night the door was left on open/on the latch, but I assume this was a guest's fault not Staff. There was also no modesty window/curtain in the bathroom. Breakfast was make your own and was very average.

We traveled a group of friends and we are really happy with the choice of our accommodation. Close to everything, excellent value for money and Marco was just absolutely fabulous, great hospitality! The reason why we chose this hostel was because of a recommendation from one of my friends.
