Florinda is awesome and felt like a mama watching over us. It was nice to have a 4-bedroom that wasn't even full. The showers weren't that clean unfortunately but with the friendly staff and fresh croissants every morning, I didn't care. It may be a little out of the way but I enjoyed my time nonetheless.


Wonderful hostel and charming hostess! We spent great nights at this little place in old and massive-bult house. Thanks to your hospitality and kindly support (and morning croissants, too ;), Florinda!


The hostel was very very hard to find and the directions need to be amended! It is a good 15 minute walk from Termini and the numbers on the road make no sense. You pass 207 and 209 and then even though the directions tell you to continue you don't imagine it would be 10 more minutes and into a new part of town. As the area around termini is very run down. Otherwise the hostel owner is extremely nice and helpful and the hostel is a good location and value for price (once you find it)!

There are a lot of mixed reviews about this place. Let me say it's pretty fantastic. The woman, Florinda, who runs the hostel is very motherly and friendly. It is more like a Bed-and-Breakfast than most Hostels. It's also only a ten minute walk from the major juncture for all Rome trains and buses, so that makes it easy to get to when you arrive, and to grab the Metro. KEEP walking though. The odd numbers will reach 400 before you hit 208, since Termini takes up so much of the street.


uncomfortable bads, no comum area, no staff most the time I stayed there, when appeard a guy he was very moody, asked a information about bus he got angry.
