While a little out of the way, it was easy to get to the city center from the hostel. The hostel was clean and secure. There are only two real complaints that I have about this hostel, though it's possible that they may be irrelevant in a warmer season (my stay was in December). The room I stayed in had no hot water for the showers and the room was so poorly insulated that I could see my breath. Two very uncomfortable nights. May be less of an issue in a warmer season.


This was definitely the worst hostel I've ever stayed. We booked a dorm with 10 bed and provate bathroom. The door of the bathroom was broken. The beds were 100 yaers old:(. The room was very humid. In brief, DON'T WASTE your money and your time. Find another place.


The hostel is middle of nowhere, with no signs, no numbers, anything. It is absolutely far away from everything. It is an old building with issues. The only good things are the price and breakfast.


We went to Rome to discover all interesting place. The goal was successful. :) The hostel's location is not the best, but the city centre is about 45 minutes from it by bus and subway. The breakfast was a very little portion, and the cafe mashine went wrong too. So the hostel is recommend, the breakfast isn't! :)

its a hostel so im not expecting the red carpet when i stay but im paying for a place.... i believe that should include a toliet seat. having to hover in public restrooms is one thing. having to also do it in a room you paid money for. not cool. the lockers didnt work well. it was close to the bus lines and easy to get to the metro. so overall it is an ok place to stay. clean and relatively comfortable bunkbeds. buuuuut i really missed the toliet seat.
