For the price is OK!


Bad location


Most of the facilities are too old or damaged...


The hostel is in sketchy neighborhood (especially the subway station looks super shady), but it's probably cheapest option to stay in Rome. It will take 20-30 minutes to get to Termini station. Facilities are worn, no amenities, sometimes no light in bathroom. Locks are provided which is good. Kitchen and common room is nice. Wifi is OK.


This place was extremely out of the way from Rome and had to take a bus and a metro into the center. When I stayed there, they left a dog locked up in a cage all night and would moan and whine without anyone to help him out. In the morning at 8am they started construction drilling waking us up . Staff was okay, disinterested and not very welcoming. The bathrooms were extremely not well kept and the showers often didn´t work or where extremely torn down. Lizards in kitchen. Not recommended.
