George was very kind, he waited for us till mid night on our arrival day. He know little English but he was able to communicate well. We booked a room with shared bath room but we got a room with private bath room in same price. The breakfast was in a cafe outside hotel, but it was ok.
Staff was totally easygoing, nobody was there while checking in(we specified the time before), the man told us when we called him he was on lunch and made us wait almost 2h. Our room was not on the hostel itself, they had kind of different flat with 3 rooms and shared bathroom in different building without any service , no towels, hairdryer, 24h reception, luggage storage, etc. We chose Salvador B&B becauseof the comments but was totally dissapointed.
The hot water is not guaranteed... and the room is not so clean. but the location is good, since it's close to Vaticano.
Rooms are big, good wifi, excellent location. On the arrival Salvador took long time to answer our calls and to arrive (more than 40 min), wish is a long time at 11pm. His english is poor, but we manage to understand. No tv. No breakfast on sunday!! Breakfast is only one croissant and one drink (coffee/latte/juice). One day without hot water. On Monday Salvador almost made us pay our own breakfast because we ordered bread at breakfast instead of croissant :( Sad.

The host couldn't speak even basic English and was a little bit surly. The bathroom was not clean and during the shower hot water ends. Breakfast is free but not so good. It is close to Vatican and to metro station.
Not easy to find. Owner is very friendly and gives breakfast to bed everyday but speaks very poor english. Very clean and close to metro station and vatican.
Very basic apartment rooms. Very large rooms with a couch and a desk aswell. Very cheap and great location. The owner Giorgio is nice however speaks no English whatsoever. No breakfast is involved and its specific apartment rooms that you get. Location is fantastic though. You will need to rock up at the address provided might need to wait 10 or so minutes for him but then he will show you the place (very average) and you're set to go. Nothing fancy but can't complain.
The hostal is located near the Vatican and has a lot of supermarkets nearby, it's very secure and has an elevator. We didn't speak in english with the owner but he probably didn't speak it at all. Really good value for the money.
Location was good. 5 min from Vatican. The room was big, and had two communal bathrooms to choose from. The problem was the cleanliness of the bed sheets. Had hairs and stuff. I am sure the duvet hadn't been washed in a long time. Maybe ever.
The owner was a very pleasant person. Although he did not speak much English, he tried and was very kind. I unfortunately was not feeling well during a part of the trip and he kindly brought me aspirin to help. He was very accommodating and it made staying there that much nicer. I did rate the cleanliness down because it wasn't that nice. There was a strange smell to the room and I'm pretty sure it was only our room. The bathroom was okay, but other guests made it disgusting at moments.
I would not recommend staying here. Couple of reasons: It is not clean. He had a cleaning lady for the first 2 days and the rest it was dirty. The shower was disgusting. It truly was not worth my money and he tends to get loud when talking to you. The place also smells like cigarettes and feet. He is nice and tries to communicate with you and the metro is right around the corner.
