No hooks to hang a towel in the shower-toilet room. Otherwise a very good hostel by any account: recently refurbished, well-equipped kitchen, helpful staff, supermarket 7 min walk, same as metro stop for the airport. Note, dorm is Japanese capsule hotel style.

6-person dorm had bugs. Microwave is broken. Great staff and location. Kitchen well equipped. Door on the dorm couldn't be locked.

Some staff don't speak English. Kitchen had a decent fridge and lots of fry pans but few pots. Combined toilet-shower in 8-person dorm is tiny. 2-level bunks sway like mad banning the wall waking you up when a person below is not careful enough. Entrance open all day and often unattended. Kettle but no mugs in kitchen.

Lockers under bed are good, brink your padlock or buy from staff for 2E. Kitchen has only a small 2-hotplate cooker. I liked the roof terrace. Kitchen located there as well tend to be hot from the sun and stays hot till quite late. No top lighting on the terrace, so typing is a bit problematic. Wi-Fi in my room 10 was weak, thought they have 3 access points for 3 floors, one went off and the other two are better used either on stairs landings or rooftop terrace. I liked this hostel at low season

The walls a thin, so earplugs is a must if you are a light sleeper. Shortage of male toilets. As I was there in low tide, I just used female one,s but I can imagine queues in high tides. No hooks to put on your clothes in the combined toilet-shower rooms. The shower cabin is very small, so a corporeal person will find it difficult, if not impossible to use. Staff was very helpful with directions and local info. Underbed lockers 60cmWx50Dx25H. Use your own lock or ask staff. PLEASE ADD HOOKS

The location is great: lots of eateries nearby. The hostel is a bit run down. The shower roses in both showers have to be held. The staff's remark to that was "it's like that in my own house". The floor boards are noisy on the stairs to the upper rooms making loud noise one can hear through closed doors. There is only one PC and no printing facility. No laundry. Most annoying is for the two toilets on first floor, there is no place to wash hands apart from a bathroom upstairs.

Not very close to the attractions but not too far either,along a major road, so a bit noisy. Great kitchen, fridges dorms, beds, supermarket nearby. Limited number of power points in the dorm though but common room and dining have some.

WiFi only works close to reception (on floor above it too). No kitchen but there is a fridge on ground floor next to the lift. I got cups of hot water a couple of times from the bartender in their restaurant (no mugs). No kitchen.

Ciao Roman, thank you for your good review. Due to the italian laws concernig food and hygien, every year more and more rigid, we can allow just certified people to enter the kitchen; to overcome this problem, we offer a restaurant service of good quality and low prices, only € 11 for a complete dinner.

Great location close to everything but extremely noisy streets for all rooms. Ear plugs are a must. Hostel NEEDS a MICROWAVE. Mid-September I got a safe-locker but there could be too few of them. Need a soap dish or caddy in one of showers as there is nothing at all. Need power boards in rooms. In mine was only one power point for 3 people. Staff are elusive. They usually not at reception. One has to call them so get yourself a WIND SIM card (option Fresh gives 120 min + unlimited data).

The location is 4-min walk from Mazzoni tube\metro station. One can walk from the hostel to Spanish stairs in 45 mins. I wish they offered more variety of breakfast cereals, as corn flakes are only offered. I liked the kitchen facilities and the fridge. There is a supermarket and, even better, and cheaper, New Quirinale market nearby. Free pasta on Tuesday and Thursday, and wine was great. Adding cheese to just plain pasta with a small amount of sauce offered would greatly improve its appeal.

I've staid here twice. After the recent renovation, they have more showers but only the top floor one has enough room for obese people. It's in tube zone 2, so handy to get to town. It's 7-10 min walk to the station. I wish they had more chairs in the kitchen and more mugs and forks. No lockers in rooms. The only oven works and there's a baking tray in it. 2 microw. Tesco & Sainsbury's supermarkets are next to the tube entrance, M&S- in the shopping complex down the Queensway Str that goes by.

I wish they had some herbal teas available and another chair for the dining area. Wi-fi is short-range but they told they had been installing more points, so should be good when that's done. Otherwise, a good budget place where I spent 6 nights quite comfortably in a 4-bed room. I'm sure it gets very hot and uncomfy if the days are hot, as there are no ventilation, fans or anything apart from open windows at night in rooms. BBQ area at the back is great place for socialising.

Location is best. The bed mattress was good enough, clean linen. They have fan-forced ventilation in rooms. It helps to keep the air relatively fresh but is a tad noisy. If you are a light sleeper, use ear plugs. I liked the kitchen - plenty of spaces to cook, wash, store your food and eat. There is a shortage of cups\mugs but there are enough smallish glasses. Toilet and shower were clean. I liked large underbed metal draws that you can put a padlock on and lock up your belongings.

I stayed there with my 10 y.o. son, off-peak. Location is the best it can get. Though no kitchen, plates and utensils can be borrowed at the 24-hour reception, they also will give boiling water. Toaster is in common area to use.
