Ulivo B&B is very well located, a few meters from Roma Termini. Easy to find - beware the name on the doorbell is different. The staff called in advance to let me know. I took a single ensuite. Very clean and suitable for my needs, the toilet also was all right. It is small but good for anyone traveling on a short budget for a quick stay. I saw no common area. The staff Lucia was extremely helpful and polite. Bus to Roma Ciampino airport departs from a few blocks away. Breakfast is quite poor.

Great hostel, very nice and helpful staff, excellent and new facilities. Seems more like a resort or hotel. Very relaxing and cozy atmosphere. Superb view of the Meuse river from the restaurant's balcony. The hostel is located right outside one of the city parks, which contributes for a very relaxed and laid back setting. Only problem I could find is that there's no kitchen (whereas most hostels do) to cook your own food.
Staff is very helpful and friendly, location is good, but this hostel is really about hanging out and laying back. Nice bar. Not very suitable for whoever is looking for any extra comfort, as the place is very noise and busy at night. The lockers are barrels inside the bedroom shared between 18 people, so it's very noisy whenever someone is organizing their stuff. So, overall, great place for interaction, but not really comfortable for the price.
The facilities inside the apartment are great, this is more like a shared room in a good hotel rather than a hostel. Everything is brand new and works wonderfully, the room is comfortable and cozy, and there's a private kitchen. You don't need to wash dishes or cutlery as they are plastic and disposable. Only setback is that there isn't really a common area, and the Hostel is actually in the same building as some other business class hotels, so it isn't exactly a place for lot of interaction.
The staff is very helpful and friendly in this hostel, going out of their way to help us enjoy Brugge and plan for our next destinations. Nice people to chat around, a good common area with a bar and some comfortable sofas. The kitchen isn't very big but enough, the whole building is being renovated and the new rooms are excellent. The overall atmosphere is very cozy and it's nice that there'll be a bathroom in every floor after construction is finished. A good experience.
Very good hostel for its price. The staff was friendly and helpful, provided us with info on the facilities and transportation from the hostel. Rooms were large, they didn't have as many power outlets as beds but not a big problem. Everything was quite clean, the kitchen was big enough for two groups to cook simultaneously, but there was no abundance of pans or cutlery. There is a bar which is ideal for meeting new people, and the overall atmospere i great.
Great assistance from the staff, always friendly and helpful. Versatile hostel, with a complete and lively bar, a lot of open areas on the lobby and a decent breakfast for the price. The only thing I'd point out as needing improvement are the computers in the cyber cafe. Since you have to pay for the time you stay, at least they shouldn;t be so slow. Took me more than 30 minutes to print my boarding pass...
