They allow everyone to cook and listen to music socialise etc until after midnight- they don't see a problem with that at all. The toilet stunk- a stench of gas constantly. I had to hold my breath to use the toilet.

Very nice cosy, quiet hostel, decent kitchen, common area and computers, friendly atmosphere. It is fairly central and close to the metro, but other hostels are more central. My only complaint is that the bunkbed squeaked quite a lot.

I had quite a pleasant stay. It's all basics for a hostel: bunk bed, pillow, blanket, heater (for winter) and small lockers for your values. It'd be nicer if they had provided some towels. Good kitchen. Nice breakfast. There's only one bathroom for those staying in dorms but I was there exactly during Christmas so I never really had to wait to use the bathroom. But this might be a problem during busy season like summer. The staffs were nice and helpful. Everything is very clean.

My stay at Rome City Hostel was great. It's a small place, but the atmosphere is very friendly and fun. The staff is extremely helpful and willing to help you in many situations. It's also surrounded by delicious restaurants!

Staff is nice, location is OK. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Ive read some other reviews for this hostel that breakfast sucks - I dont know what do you expect to have for breakfast in a cheap hostel...Maybe for someone is expensive but its only 2-3 euros more than the cheapest hostel in Rome and its absolutely clean & tidy.

The worst hostel I've ever stayed in. First of all, the room was described as 6-bed dorm. But there were 7 beds in the small room. So literally no space to walk. You can just come and sleep in the room, nothing else. Breakfast was just a few things. No eggs were there, again as mentioned in the descriptions. There were only 2 bathrooms for a number of people. It's just a small apartment converted to a hostel. And they charge a price higher than many other hostels for this. Do not book this.

The rooms are really small and stuffy, especially since there is no window for air circulation. Nice to have a continental breakfast, and easy to catch the metro.

Staff seemed to have a tough time with simple questions.

The staff is really nice to us. They introduce the sightseeing places in Roma and little tips to pay Roma a visit. They had a really comfortable living room where people can chat so it feels more like a home rather than regular hostel. Although the location is a bit far, it's still near metro station. And it's a really tranquil area where you can have a really nice sleep.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms and bedrooms are much cleaner than some other hostels I have stayed in. The hostel isn't very close to central Rome, but the journey to get there is relatively easy.

The kitchen was great! Free breakfast, so that's always nice. It was clean. The location isn't great but it was pretty quiet, and easy to get to termini with the metro. Cheap beer and wine is sold at the hostel, which is really nice!!

Took me forever to find the hostel, as it has no sign. The staff member with whom I checked in was very rude and uninformative. He didn't even look at me while he spoke so softly I couldn't understand him. My room was conjoined to the back patio, and staff members kept just walking through my room to hang out in the back. Very insecure and inconsiderate. Lockers in rooms were tiny. Breakfast sucked. Common room was nothing but a couch and a tv by the check-in desk. Don't stay here. Just don't.

It looks like a big appartment organized as an hostel. It is situated near the Tiburtina station, so it was easy to me to walk to my bus station to reach other italian cities (by Leonetti bus). It is not very far but to reach the city center, you have to take a metro or a bus for a few stops. The location of the hostel is very quiet. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

Good hostel. But not the description that says "for families who like to relax" For the rest good hostel, we met a lot of different people from different country's. Rok: keep up your hospitality, you are a great guy!

It was slightly away from the city centre but not too far. Met some really nice people at the hostel. It was slightly cramped though but that doesnt really matter when you are backpacking.

great small cozy hostel. location i s great: quite young neighborhood two subway stops from downtown and main attractions. rooms were very clean, common area and breakfast okay (dont expect great breakfast when you pay $20 a night). Great pizza place right in front of it: a whole pie and a beer $5!! Great stay overall.

Good location close to a metro station and if you don't mind a walk you can walk from the main train station. Small and humble but well equip for all basic needs. Breakfast basic but still good.

It's a nice hostel with extremely helpful staff. It's a bit far walking to the center but it is easily accsesable by public transport. I would recommend this hostel for it's staff and it's rooms. Thanks for the great stay guys.
