Even though it is a good 45-60 min away, the price and services provided, make it well worth the trip plus not being in the hussle and bustle of downtown Rome. You take the U20 bus back and forth from campground to train station but there is also a non-numbered blue bus that takes you to a main bus terminal and the same train line as the U20 but further down to Saxa Rubra. Catch bus 32 from there and it ends at the Vatican. We were in the tent and the bed was a little saggy. Otherwise, great.
The camping is good. I would just work on this: the tents are too close, you can hear everything from the next tent, in the day thwy get too hot so it is impossible to hang out there. The prices of the supermarket are really good but the bar is a little overpriced. The atmosphere is cool and it feels like a safe place, I would add some lockers to make it even safer and more power contacts in the tents. The only thing that upset me was having to pay 1.50 for the shuttle service at 7 hills is free

It takes around 50 mins- at least, to get back to this campsite. It takes two long metro rides, plus their own shuttle bus which is every 30 mins. The campsite is really nice; the atmosphere is good, pool is great and the restaurant has fab food for cheap prices compared to Rome itself. We stayed in one of the campsite's small caravans, which were actually really good. The beds were very comfy and we got an ensuite bathroom, all for a great price. quite hot, but soon cool down. Great place
Was very good value for the money. Staying in the tent was basically the same as in a hostel, only for much less. In fact, it was better in the evening than many hostels because the air moved into the tent better and it was cooler. However, the big drawback is the noise. The tents were close together and all the different parties going on around made it difficult to sleep. Also, it is quite far from the Rome city center, and the walk to the campground can seem a little sketchy at night.
AWESOME! Loved it! Staff was super nice and friendly☺ We had a great time! 😊😊
I had a great time here, staff is really nice. You can arrive to the city centre in 40min but it's not that far, believe me, it's worth it when you see can have best of both worlds, city - camp.
Tent dorms provided were well cleaned after each stay and bedding provided was clean. Laundry service was available for a fee and towels could be purchased at a fee. Pool area was great to have and a store and a resteraunt were also available at certain points of the day. Downside to stay was that the hostel was far from the city center and although public transport ran well the shuttle from the camp site to the station didn't run from 12 to 4 and it was a 20mim walk.
If You looking for cheap place to spend some time next to the swimming pool its place for You , but to get to the center of Rome is a bit difficult, the staff are friendly and helpful, take with You something from bloodsucking mosquitos i recomend that place.
The shuttle dont runs every 30 minutes, and stop in the afternoon for no reason, but u can get a public bus, even they dont tell this in the description.
The major issue is the location, the hostel is very far from the city centre. If you don't mind that, I recommend this hostel to you. They have a nice bar/restaurant, with good food and cold beer. The staff is amazing, specially the guys in the bar. Facilities are good, lots of showers and bathrooms, a mini-market, and even a pool.
There are many mosquitoes and the location is really far away from center. Also, the wifi is really bad
Would stay again because of how cheap it was...but no lockers for valuables, and pretty far outside the city...we stayed for a week so had time to see everything we wanted to, but if you are in Rome for a short time just stay in the city as the commute takes at least 45 min every morning and evening...restaurant, store, and pool all very good...toilets and showers ok, but a ton of Mosquitos due to moisture, should be some way to remedy this as it was quite annoying being bitten after disrobing.
With it being a metro, tram & bus ride away it's pretty inconvenient to make it out to the city of Rome , but for a nice getaway from the city madness , it worth it for a place to get away. The price is very good, but you end up paying for it in the end with the cost of food as there's nowhere to cook food, but overall a great place!
I loved Tiber because of the beautiful trees and nice shared tents. Everything is very clean and neat and there's a great atmosphere. However the wifi wasn't working for the whole time I was there and it really is quite a commute to get from there to the center of Rome.
Great campsite but very far away from central Rome, and hard to get anywhere in a hurry. But there is a shuttle that takes you to the train station so that's very helpful. Great facilities and the dorm tents were great.
Just outside of Rome city, (about 20 mins by train and then a shuttle bus) Lovely camping grounds, lots of greenery and flowers, really pretty place, the girls I met on reception were really, really nice. The man who drove the shuttle bus was lovely too. I loved the resturant for dinner, food was great, the guys working there were amazing, prices were good. I stayed in a cabin with an ensuite and it was nice enough for the very cheap price, they are 1 cabin split into 2, which was fine until mi
Not advised for Solo Travellers. Really far away from the center of Rome. Trains stop early, night buses are not advisable as you have to walk for twenty minutes in the dark along a road from the bus stop. The shuttle runs until 11 granted but the trains stop before then and you also have to pay for the site shuttle. My cabin was unstable and shook horrendously, after reporting it twice was still not sorted even after 6 nights. Bedding not changed once in this time either. Unimpressed!
Very worth the money we paid for the 2 nights. However we had a small problem with ants and other bugs coming into our room.
Takes a bit of time to get to the central area of the city, but no complaints! (Still took only approximately 45 minutes for this) Very hospitable staff and would consider this place again.
