Hostelworld says:

Papa Germano is located near Termini Station, from where 'you can go pretty much anywhere in the centre by foot', according to one Hostelworld user. Our guests say the incredibly friendly staff 'are very easy-going and are willing to help you with directions' and that this very clean, modern, quiet hostel is like 'a hotel that is cheaper than hostels'. We like that there's no bunk beds in the dorms, making them feel more like family rooms.

Property Information:

Papa's place welcomes all types of travellers in search of affordable accommodation.

Ideally located on a quiet street in the heart of Rome, we're just five blocks from the central station and within easy walking distance to most attractions.

We provide single, double, triple and quad rooms as well as small dormitories (max four people). We also have double and triple rooms with private bathrooms. All rooms come with satellite TV, direct dial telephone and a hairdryer. There's also 30 minutes free Internet for our guests each day!

Reception is open 24hrs a day and our young friendly staff speak English, French and Spanish. We're happy to help you arrange city bus tours, city walking tours, tours of Italy and reservations for museums, theatres and Wednesday audiences with the Pope. There's no curfew or lock-out!

Discover Roma from our charming hostel, recommended by tons of travel guides including Let's Go, Frommers, Lonely Planet and Le Guide du Routard!

The management reserves the right to distribute the dormitory beds depending on availability and to make any bed or rooms change it might be necessary, this means that it's not given that you will stay in the same room for the length of your stay.

    I think what people really appreciate about us is that this is a place where you can actually get some sleep; it's not a party hostel. We welcome any type of guest who likes to party outside and then have a secure, nice, clean and silent place where they can relax after partying. Believe us - you don't have to lose your time in a hostel when you have a city like Rome to explore!
    There's so much nearby, like the Naiadi Fountain and Santa Maria degli Angeli Church, design by Michelangelo. I particularly recommend visiting the Capuchin Catacombs, a scary crypt with decorations made out of 4,000 skeletons.
    I think we're ideal for people interested in the arts, history, slow food and wine and whoever is on a budget but still likes to have come comfort. We're suitable for any age but we do impose an under-45 age restriction on the dorm rooms only.

    No lockers in dormitory rooms, but they have a safe at the front desk for valuables. Extremely far walk to anything that you would want to do in Rome, which is especially bad since the metro system in Rome is terrible. 2 shared bathrooms in a small group of rooms, 1 was great 1 was awful. Friendly staff. Not 24 hour reception and no real common area. Outlets and small lights over most of the beds (my bed was the only one in a 4 bed room without that). Not really designed to be a hostel.
