We had an absolutely amazing time at Hostel Wiki. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and the free shuttle to and from the train station made staying outside of Rome a non-issue. We are so glad that we were able to explore Zagarollo and get to know the staff and fellow guests at the hostel through the walking tour and the fantastic pasta night. We would definitely stay here again!

The hostel is nice and the staff were friendly. My one warning to any future bookers is that if you plan to fly out of Rome early in the morning don't stay here. I had a flight for Sunday morning, I asked how much a shuttle would be from the hostel, the answer was €90. This was obviously way too much so I asked when the shuttles would be running to the station, apparently they did not run on Sunday morning. This left me hauling my bags up the road. Not fun.
What an amazing hostel! The amazing staff truly make the stay and create a great social atmosphere. The train rides in and out of Rome is a bit of a bummer if you want to enjoy the Rome nightlife or get an early start to the day without an hour of traveling into town. But in a very pretty, quiet location. Wifi was decent inside but no one uses it anyways as you're always sipping on wine! Pizza & Pasta parties are amazing. Stay here!! Couldn't recommend it enough!! THANK YOU WIKI!
Such a great place to stay. Ok, so it's not within walking distance of Rome's main sites, but getting into the city is not a problem at all, & it's kind of nice to return somewhere peaceful after a big day out. The staff are so warm & helpful, & the common areas make it really easy to meet people. And if you like cats, there are quite a few of them around! The only negatives I experienced were the mosquitoes - bring insect repellent - & the beds were very squeaky. But I had a great time here!
Best hostel in Rome! Looking forward to visit you again guys.

If you scroll down a little bit, you will see my first review... I came back and stayed a few more days a week later because I loved this hostel and the people so much! Plus who would give up the opportunity of another pasta party?! Everyone at the hostel always talks about how homely it is here. People are always extending their stays or end up coming back, just as I did. It's a nice feeling to have while travelling. Do yourself a favour and make sure you stay here with these amazing people!
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Felt like a family as the way the hostel is run brings everyone together. Would definitely stay there again!

This was the best hostel I stayed at in Europe! Don't stay in Rome! Wiki hostel is only a short train ride out of the city and they have so much to offer! We stayed at Wiki for two nights, but wish we could have stayed longer. On the first night they had a pizza party where we were taught traditional pizza making methods with locally sourced food in their stone pizza oven! Great country/hostel atmosphere and amazing staff! Also worth checking out the farmers market and their local wine ! Winner.
Stumbled upon wiki hostel by looking over top hostels in and near Rome based upon approval rating. Wiki hostel was given a very high approval rating so I thought it would be the right hostel to choose! After spending even just my first night at the hostel (let alone 4 nights in total) I understand why the hostel is so well recommended! The staff, location, atmosphere, facilities, etc. are all amazing! If you are travelling in groups or as a solo traveler (as I was) I certainly recommend here!
AMAZING staff! They're super friendly & engaging & help you with very useful information (Marta you're a STAR!). Super nice vibe,spacious&clean dorms & communal areas, decent breakfast included, swimming-pool, lots of green. But beware that it's NOT in Rome. Zagarolo is at least 30mins, with 1 train/HOUR departing each-way and & very FEW on SAT/SUNDAY. Your trip is restricted to train times. If you don't mind the distance+time on train, & staying AT LEAST 5days/4 nights in Rome, You'll love it!
Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at! It had all the facilities we needed -kitchen, gym, pool, air conditioning, bar etc. and the staff were very lovely and helpful! It's only 20-30 mins out of Rome by train and for us it was definitely worth it, especially since the buses come every half an hour. Definitely stay here if you are coming to Rome.
really loved this place, great vibe and awesome people.
Do not be disheartened by the location of this hostel. It adds to the experience! You travel half hour by train out of Rome & get picked up at Zagarolo station by one of the extremely lovely staff! We felt incredibly welcome and comfortable before we even arrived. The atmosphere is amazing, everyone treats you like family and helps in any way possible. If you have the chance of staying on a Monday night, GO TO THE PASTA PARTY! It was the best experience I've had in any hostel. You will love it!
Very spacious hostel with a small pool, lively outdoor area, cozy bar area. It's got it all. The people who work there are awesome and make the stay what it is. So much funny banter and good times. Besides there Pizza party which is fun, Matt's tour of old town Zagarolo on Sunday mornings with the farmers market was amazing and well worth it. A++ would stay again. Only small things would be mosquitos can be a handful when you're in the outdoor area and hot water showers may be hard to come by.
I've stayed at hundreds of hostels and this is easily in the top 3! It's about a 30 minute train ride from the city centre, but is well worth the trip!!! You won't regret it :)
One of the best hostels I've stayed in, do not get scared of by the distance to the city center, that's actually a good thing. It's located in Zagarolo, a tiny but very beautiful town outside of rome. Train ride there is 30 minutes and no hassle at all. The hostel itself is very atmospheric and open, it was very easy to meet new people, had a lot of fun there. Even the dinner is cheap and quite good, although a kitchen to cook yourself is provided. The wine was even better and pretty cheap.
Not recommended if you only have a day or two to stay. From Rome's main station it takes another 1-2 hours to get to the hostel (so that's 2-4 hours out of your day both ways). First train also doesn't leave the area til like 6am, so if you have an early flight out you can't get there. Atmosphere is unique, and I think it would be fun for an extended stay. Nice people, a little too casual at times. Had one of their cats jump in my bed in the middle of the night and paw at my legs.
Do yourself a favour and go and stay at Wiki. The best hostel we stayed at in our three week trip around Europe, friendly and interesting staff, great facilities and an all you can eat pizza party on the Friday, what more could you want??

Relaxing hostel just a short train ride from Rome. Upgraded to a private room which was huge and had it's own bathroom. The dorm room I was in for one night was large - enough room for everyone's luggage and cupboards you could lock with your own lock. However, I was on the top bunk and it shook each time I made a slight movement which was quite annoying (but this was not the reason I upgraded). Pasta at the pasta night was delicious. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
