The hostel is really cool, good value for money, clean and comfy. The tea and cofee are excellent as well as the breakfast. The only downside is the owner, who yells at everyone, including guests, every time he shows up at the hostel, he can really put down the mood of the whole place :(

Well, after reading the reviews I was kind of scared to even see the place, but it turned out quite alright. True, there is no hot water in the showers, it's a little warm at best and the temperature in the showers is rather low, so showering is not a pleasant experience... and the wifi is very capricious. But in general the hostel is very nice. There is an absolutely awesome bar and very cozy common areas, it's full of backpackers and the staff is very helpful.

The place is absolutely beautiful, very clean and very nice, comfortable clean rooms and generally a nice quiet place. Though I wouldn't call it a hostel, it's more of a B&B, excellent for families, not so much for backpackers (no music, no noise, no parties policy). Plus, I was unpleasantly surprised with the price - very similar and even nicer places in the same district all charge 30% less. So I would recommend either to ask around on the spot or negotiate the price with the owner

Great hostel, the owners are absolutely charming and do everything in their power to make you feel at home. The rooms are clean and pleasant, although it can get a little cold at night. Showers have hot water and the wifi works fine. In general the place is really chilled and pleasant. There is some kind of weird pricing policy, several conflcts arised while we were there, so better make your booking online to avoid misunderstandings.

The hostel looks more like a cheap hotel. The bathroom was excellent, clean and spacious. Wi-fi is practically non-existent, staff not very helpful, reception closes at 00.30. The main downside - absolutely no security. The doors to the hostel are locked with a code, so practically anyone can get in without even passing through reception. The rooms have no locks whatsoever. When I informed the hostel that I got robbed they just shrugged their shoulders and told me to go to the police.

As a b&b it's pretty nice, don't expect a hostel though. It's a large apartment with rooms for rent. The owner is very nice and helpful. He also offers tours to Vatican which I wouldn't recommend. Breakfast is a croissant and a cup of coffee. Wi-fi is slow, but works, same goes for the AC. It's near Vatican, so if you plan to go mainly there the location is excellent. Downtown is a 10 min. bus ride or 30-40 minute walk, 10 euros cab drive. The bar district is about 25 min. walk away.

The hostel is really beautiful, with very friendly atmosphere and excellent staff. The rooms are so clean you could eat off the floor. The beds are really small and the hostel is telling the truth when warning that the rooms are tiny. The central station is just a 10-minute walk away. The breakfast is good, includes ham, cheese, some jams and peanut butter, cornflakes, apples. The common space is spacious, with a TV, comfortable couch and lots of tables.
