Not worthy. Getting from the airport to Bijou by pub. transport is very tricky. Every single amenity in Rome is too far away. The reception is always empty, nobody there. It took us thirty minutes (us and a few other guests, we heard everything from our room, no choice) to get into the hotel. Nobody answered the bell nor the phone numbers provided. And the worst: they charged us the three nights before our arrival, plus the city tax. That's ILLEGAL. The receptionist, a disaster. Not worthy.
watch out for the payment on arrival, u pay 70% of the cost and the rest comes out of your account unexpectantly. the location is hurrendous, to get to rome to see either vatican city, the colloseum or the trevi fountain from this hostel you walk to the bus stop (5 mins) get a bus for 5 stops, then a train for about 45mins. upon booking transport back to the airport a taxi turned up and had a completely different price to that of the sign in the hostels reception. also very very noisey
Location was less central than expected. Reception was not 24 hour so didn't see a member of staff as arrived late and left early. Nobody answered phone during reception hours. Atmosphere was none exit net as nobody was present. Wifi wasn't working, shoer was broken and no hot water. English directions from availed information where missing. More than 12% was taken out of bank account.

Bijou Rome is very far from Rome city centre and to travel there takes a long time.
