- more heating for the room - warmer water in shower - cleaning regularly - no kitchen - no breakfast for the price


Good workers, good location, near the best places of Rome, but cleaning is not too good, neither the price.


Staffs are nice and helpful. Location is great, so close to main train station, very convenience for foreigner. The only issue is building condition, old and need renovate.

Was a horrible experience, the place is infested with bed bugs, I am covered head to toe in bites!!!! I payed to stay in a 3 bed room for 2 nights had to get moved around to different rooms and had me sleeping on a mattress on the floor!!! And one bathroom for the whole 3rd level was a bad enough wait to use the toliet let alone to have a shower!!!! Absolutely discussed I've stayed in a lot of hostels and this is by far the worst I've stayed in!!! Would not recommend to anyone!!!


I'm sorry to say so because the staff was very friendly and helpful, but there were bed bugs in the bed. A lot of them! I got bitten pretty bad...

During our stay we weren't sure that there were truly bedbugs in our sheets, but after arriving home we absolutely did have bed bugs which was a major disappointment. We also weren't a fan of the limited wifi or the extremely wet and dirty bathrooms.

Staff was unhelpful and hostel was really dirty and not well taken care of. There were bedbugs in 2 out of the 3 rooms we stayed in and they were in every bed in those rooms. We all woke up with bites everywhere....so gross. Would definitely not recommend

We had a great time at the Hostel. The assistance we received from the staff , especially from Sara and Silvia was excellent. Not only were they very accommodating within the hostel, they were friendly and approachable and helped us to plan our time spent in Rome. Pop Inn Hostel is in an incredible location and, the ease of access this gives you to San Lorenzo (the student district) means it is ideal accommodation for those on a budget.

It's beside termini station. Good staffs. But No lock in room's door. Wifi was operated only in lobby.


as by far the WORST place I've ever been. The first impression wasn't any good: dirty and decrepit building. The reception was ok. The ensuite private room was A NIGHTMARE All dirty (with smoke packs on the window), bathroom smudgy and smelly. There was BLOOD STAIN ON THE SHEETS!!!!! Even after requested, nothing was cleaned. Besides a stranger opened my door, and I complained, in vain. Not only was I mistreated and "called" a layer, but nothing was done. And a lot more (no space here)....

Amazing location. Smell from bathroom and loose tiles in shower


Good location, easy to access, nice staff but it wasnt so clean. ulaşımı çok kolay, termini nin hemen karşısı, odalar pek temiz değildi, ama çalışanlar çok yardımcı oldu.


The private room I stayed in was great - nice size, big bathroom, air conditioning, tv, and a small balcony. The main door leading from the hallway to the rooms was very creaky, which got a little loud. One confusing thing is that even though there are multiple staff members it seems they can't all do check - in so you have to wait for someone else to be there to do it. Overall though, a great place in a convenient location.
