Everything was great, very friendly staff, room was clean and nicely decorated, 24h access to cofffee maker. I'd like to suggest little fridge in the room.


B&B in basement is not staisfatory


Loved the room and breakfast. Location was a bit of hike from most major monuments however. Also the room had a cold damp feeling to it, which made it a little uncomfortable to sleep in. Also the street was pretty loud at night. Good value for your money though and the owners were really nice.

We loved the "theme" and the decor, it is a good value for the money. Breakfast was little skimpy, but all in all a nice place. It is in a basement (we called it the dungeon") so you cannot see outside really, but it was very interesting if that doesn't bother you.


This hostel was good value for money, the cheapest double room i found in Rome and much better than expected. The decoration was lovely, and only a 10 minute walk from the main train station (Termini), although quite a walk if you are going to the touristy areas. The only negatives were that the towel we got smelled really bad, and the host is not always home, when we arrived she wasn't home, and getting a hold of her to pay when we wanted to leave was also not easy. Breakfast was great.


The room looked great, the staff was friendly and helpful, BUT (....) there were some bugs in the room that bit my companion terribly. He had to go get cortison from the pharmacy and was complaining about the swollen and itchy spots that covered his body.
