I loved that the rooms had lots of natural light and felt open. You had your own bed, with a night stand,and reading light. The locker was big enough to stick my 25 inch suit case in. I did not like that you did not have a key to get into the hostile. You had to buzz the receptionist every time you came back to the hostel.


There is a kitchen in this hotel, so we can cook


I enjoyed very much staying at Orsa Maggiore. The place and the neighborhood are great, and the staff is very willing to help. I would definitely come back

Such a nice hostel, with nice staff and big rooms that were very clean. But it was a bit annoying it closed at 3 AM, so we couldnt be out longer


This place would work for a budget travel, for someone who wont be spending much time in the hostel. It is a clean place, but there is no atmosphere. The WI-Fi doesn't work in the rooms, only at the corridor near the reception. The breakfast is not great, and the kitchen closes at 12 and reopens at 7.30 so if you have an early flight it is impossible for you to have a cup of tea or anything to eat. It is a decent place for a budget traveler, but if your looking for comfort, this is not the place

This is a budget place with budget rates as you probably noticed when you reserved. The wi-fi, works in the corridors and in the brekfast room. Beeing this a XVI century building (this is the atmosphere), the walls are too thick for the wifi in the rooms. Breakfast consists in: Lavazza espresso coffe for real italian cappuccino, milk ,tea, butter, jams, cake, yogurts, bread, and crisp bread, corn flakes, 2 kinds of cheese. Need I say more?


We really enjoyed our stay. There is plenty of room in the bedrooms, much more than the usual hostel and no bunks. The rooms are quiet at night, being on the inside of the building around the courtyard. The bathrooms are also more roomy and dry than the usual hostel. We also appreciated the large lockable cupboards. The breakfast is excellent, with plenty of food and Lavazza expresso. Staff were really helpful with maps and directions for supermarkets, buses & trams.


I loved the part of town this hostel was in. It was on the other side of the river but still close to the Vatican, Piazza Navone and Campo di Fiori. Trastevere itself is wonderful and should not be skipped! Very quaint and the main square had so much going on. They cleaned the dorms and bathrooms each morning, the free breakfast was pretty sufficient (bread, cheese, coffee, juice, yogurt) and common space was laid out well.


Not really anywhere to change in the shower room and the cooking facilities were not that great. Abut overall a nice, quiet relaxing place to stay and chill out away from the masses.


Great place,nice staff,good value.


Pos +: - quiet, airy place - safe feeling - spacious rooms with storage Neg -: - Internet on computers: very slow - 1 key for all - Breakfast: so much waste!! All plastic, never seen before in a hostel...a disaster for nature :( - it's just a small effort to wash some plates, cups and cutlery - You have to pay cash (said on website) but there's a machine to pay w card. Dangerous to walk w cash in Rome: we were robbed in the streets on the first day (and we were not the only one of the hostel..)

Thank you for the positive review. Guests can use porcelain dishes and cups, and metal cuttlery. All these things are in the breakfast room. We request cash payment for Hostelworld's bookings because we pay a percentage for their service and we can't afford to pay for the credit card service too. We always suggest to pay at the check in or leave the cash in the room, and keep the cash separate from the documents. Rome as all the big cities in the world, has robbers!


Great Hostel :)


Friendly helpfull staff. Excellent bathroom and kitchen facilities, comfortable beds and lots of space. I would definitely recommend this hostel to others as a great place to stay in Roma.

Really great location, easily accessible to main sites in Rome with good atmosphere. The beds were very comfy and it was nice to not have a bunk bed. The breakfast was really good, especially the espresso machines! It would be nice to have some fresh bread or pastries. The staff were friendly and helpful and the hostel was very clean.
