I honestly wasn't expecting much out of this place but I was pleasantly surprised. It is very small but clean and tidy and the free breakfast isn't bad. I also ran into a guy there whom I met months ago in Ireland- small world. If you are on a budget in Rome I would definitely suggest this place.

The location of hostel is very good; 10 min walking to Tiburtina station and 10 min walking to Termini station; for us it was perfect. The staff are really friendly. The thing that was a little strange was that they asked for 2 Euro tax, which was a little surprising becuase they never mentioned it on the website.

Very nice and helpful staff. The hostel common area is small, but cozy. They play MTV music videos on the TV so it was nice to chill there and work on stuff. Breakfast is included which was awesome (it's your standard cereal, toast & jams, croissants, etc). The kitchenette also has a stove- that was a huge plus. The only downside is that the bathrooms were NASTY. I'm talking- you don't even want to brush your teeth gross. I was only there for a night though, so I got away with avoiding them.

Nothing special. But it's quite cheap. And it has free parking :)

Okay place, quiet and a bit far from the city center, but ok to take the subway and near to the train station. Not where you'll have party.

Very secure hostel, with 24 hour reception. Showers nice and hot, good water pressure. In low season, there are fewer beds in the dorm which is a nice touch. Beds comfortable and clean and bathrooms kept tidy. Could do with a bit more atmosphere, maybe a TV or some music? The communal area however was good: tables and a big couch. Free breakfast was provided and was quite generous! Manager very helpful. Visited in early January though and was too cold due to heat not being switched on often.

I think the quality of the bed need to be improved. I got a bunk bed, which my part was located on the up side. The problem is, there was no border around the bed therefore, I was so afraid that I would fall when I was sleeping. So, please change the bed to make the visitors become more comfortable.

Situated in a Students area, convenient comunication with a public transport with all most important sites. The astmosphere of this place was incredible, the staff is very helpful. There was no problem to rent a towel, get some guiding information about Rome or prices, the breakfast in the morning was a nice surprise :). The WiFi was working fast, there are two computers for common use, equiped kitchen etc. It is also close to Termini Train Station (around 15 minutes walking). Recommended!
