Pros: cheap price clean room, good wifi Cons: poor sounds accessibility .. Easy to hear what is the next room talking about. No kitchen .. Worth for stay anyway!

The staff was very nice and helpful. I stayed here for 4 days. It seems a little scary at first but then you realize the old elevator is adorable, and the little room is authentic. Great Rome hostel experience. And it's right by Termini station which was great for airport and using the metro (subway) to get around!


Good for the money. + location + cleanliness + stylish elevator :) - no kitchen - shower without curtain or something


Good location, hard to find at first, but when you find it you realize its not that bad (just their directions sucked). Kind of a dark hostel, the lights were always off in the hostel so you'd be walking in darkness till you got to your room. But clean (no shower curtains), and the room was cute clean and small. NO PLUGS, there was two in a room, for a three person room, which kinda sucked and no TV so couldn't use the TV as a charger. But for the price you're paying its good.


Thank you very much. I had a nice trip in Rome and good rest in your place.


The conditions are a bit spartan, but that is quite understandable considering this price category. Otherwise this hostel is a gem - the staff is wonderfully polite and helpful, the rooms are spotlessly clean and the location is just perfect (both quiet and close to the city center and Termini station). Plus - we absolutely fell in love with that old, wooden elevator! Five stars - we will definitely go there again next time.
