Twin cities is a great hostel. The host is extremely friendly and speaks Italian, Spanish and English. If your traveling on a budget this is the hostel for you. It's located a bit outside of the city centre but is very close to the metro which will get you into the centre in 20 minutes. The hostel has a good kitchen and is located near a number of supermarkets. Again perfect for budget traveler. I would recommend staying at Twin Cities

take metro B line to come back home


Only downside is the distance into the centre. Otherwise really nice comfortable place to stay. Used the kitchen several times, as well as the computer in the communal area. The landlady (Katerina) is lovely and speaks excellent English. Very attentive host, constantly checked we were okay and adjusted aircon to our liking - aircon, big plus.

From Colosseum metro Station: Take Metro line 'B' (heading towards Laurentina) the 4th stop is Basilica San Paolo, get out here - notice - on 'via G. Gozzi' side, now that you're out the metro, take a left and turn right soon on viale 'G. Imperatore', pass via 'G. Chiabrera' and turn right at viale Leonardo da Vinci. . You'll find TwinCities hostel Rome on the left at #223. [approximately 13 minutes] - night time catch N2 bus which runs as MEtro line at night, and it run every 10mins


A small but cozy hostel, not far from the Colosseum, and central Rome. Room was small, but there was enough space and a nice bathroom and lockers. With a personal light and plugs on each bed, and also air conditioning working at night so you can sleep in the hot summer. A good garden to socialize and some music playing. Just the kitchen is really small so you have to wait to cook, but you've got the basics including salt . Close to ATM and cheap supermarket on the way to the metro Station.


I really liked the hostel. Is was cosy and small. A little bit like home! Nice in a big city as Rome! And near the metro, 15 min. And you are in the city!


I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE ENOUGH. the hostel owner is so cool and nice and chill about everything. it's reasonably easy to get there too considering its close to a subway station. its clean, spacious, and the people in my room were pretty chill too. definitely a good place if you're on a budget but don't want to live in a swamp. 10/10 would recommend to a friend or family member.


stuffs are really good people and they are trying to help you. Bed and rooms was always clean But kitchen was little bit dirty and you have to be careful .it is not include breakfast

breakfast would not be included, but you have kitchen available all day to cook your meal, so it gets cleaned twice a day, but if somebody doesn't know there is a rule: "clean right after cooking yourself"


The staff is really nice! the location is not the best one but the instruction is super clear,it's less than 10 mins on foot from MTR and the roads are all straight forward.


The manager of this hostel and his wife were absolutely amazing. They were extremely kind and helpful. the rooms were clean and the bathrooms were cleaned daily. I don't have a single complaint about this place everything for my stay in Rome was amazing. It is a short metro ride to the sites and Rome itself was amazing as well. Will return


I thought that the hostel is really nice... good space and good facilities and good price
