Highly recommend: Laundry place close by, clean, safe, friendly staff, all of whom can show you where to go and what to do on a map, restaurant across the street, 5 min walk to Termini Station, good price. Very convenient.


Helpful staff, clean facilities-room cleaned daily! Wifi is great, rooms are relatively quiet,close to main train station. A good pension hotel.


We needed a place to stay in Rome near Termini for one night and this place was perfect! Very impressive room and bathroom for what we were expecting. Breakfast was average but all we needed. Within walking distance to Termini, I will stay here again if I have a stopover in Rome for only a few nights.

I was very much looking forward to my visit to Rome, however starting the visit with a check-in to Papa Germano was a bit uninviting. The main reason I chose the place was because of the listed 24-hour check-in/reception, as I knew my plane would be landing late. I left an email stating that I would be arriving around midnight. However upon arrival the older man at the desk was very rude and condescending about my late arrival, saying he was just about to close. Okay facility but not the nicest.


Great location and very clean. We had incredibly dirty neighbor-guests and even so the staff managed to keep everything spotless. Would definitely go back.


We stayed for three nights and it was very nice. It was more like a small hotel rather than a hostel. Once we got our surroundings it wasn't too far from the main attractions about 20 walk to the Colosseum. The room was moderately clean and the bath rooms were very clean! The staff was very friendly and very helpful.


Muy cerca de Termini! 😉


We thought that this was a nice hostel very close to the Termini station. The room was clean and seemed secure, and the receptionist spoke good English and was extremely helpful. We also thought that the price was reasonable for the service and location, and we would have no problems staying here again. The atmosphere is more like a small hotel than a hostel, but we were only staying one night and just wanted to use it as a base for seeing the city so this was fine for us.

Take note: breakfast and a/c are not included; both will cost you extra. On the positive side, it's close to the train station and walking distance to all of the sights.


CONS: So first of all, the receptionist was rude. At one point while we were waiting for others to check in, she walked them up to their room but then locked us in the reception. No kitchen facilities even though its supposed to be a hostel. Hidden costs for AC remote and a tax for each person staying, (include this in your costs instead of feeling like you are ripping us off!) Shower was really small, im not a big boy and i struggled to move. PROS very clean, and close to transport


They are a hotel that rent shared room. So this is a very nice place, very clean and tidy, with maids that clean up all the place diarily. Probably the best "hostel" ever.


Excellent location, and front desk staff were brilliant and always happy to help with all queries. Rooms were cleaned each day and new sheets & towels provided (hotel rather than hostel service!). Would definitely stay again if revisiting Rome.


Staff is very friendly and helpfull (Rosy in particular!) Location is perfect; near central station. There are no lockers unfortunately.


位置在车站附近、楼下旁边有一家中国人开的超市还不错。 住的混合宿舍、干净、但是晚上有点吵,旁边楼下有家 bar。空调要收费。地理位置比较相对安全,因为离派出所比较近。 个人认为值得推荐。


It has a hotel feeling to it. It is secure. It lacks a lounge area, it only has a small one and an storage room because you only leave your things in the lounge and that seems weird. Rooms are clean although a bit small, location is good.
