The staff were very friendly and helpful. Air conditioning is an additional amount if you want it. I would recommend that the owners increase the price to include air conditioning in summer as it gets really hot. Having to pay extra can be annoying. There is a communal kitchen but it was not very clean. Need better instructions on how to get to hostel. Have a look at Papa Germano in Rome who provide excellent instructions for someone who is new to the city.
Stayed in a double room, booked shared bathroom, got given private bathroom so it was like a hotel, didn't see anyone else. Kitchen looked good. Different building to where we checked in. Receptionist gave us a map and perfunctory speel. Location and price excellent. Bed looked beautiful but was pretty old and saggy (like Cher!)
