    Very good atmosphere, staffs are friendly, good breakfast for €5.00, great location just a few minutes from the station. The room is quite big and clean, the staff come everyday to clean it, the party that they organized are really nice to meet new people. You can print for free, maps for free, it is a good hostel I would recommend it.You pay for valuables storage before/after checkout if you would like to leave your things in the hostel while you go out during the day.

    Had an amazing time here. All Staff was helpful and accommodating. I was upgraded to a smaller room for free. Met a lot of great people on their weekly bar crawl - would highly recommend! Also very quiet if you're just looking for a place to stay. Only complaint at all was that wifi was just a bit spotty in some areas. Otherwise, I highly recommend if you're in Rome!! I would book again.

    Fabulous

    15 Jun 2019
    Rooms are big and clean. Mattress was lumpy and curved inwards. The bathrooms on the 4th floor had no benches or hooks to hang your cloths or towel so basically everything gets soaked or you have to leave your things on the floor outside the shower and walk around naked to get you towel and cloths. I found some other bathrooms on the second floor that were much better with a proper dressing area before the shower so if you get a room on the 4tg floor it’s worth heading downstairs to shower.

    Staff was friendly. Rooms seemed clean. Lockers in room were nice- bring a lock. Short walk to train station. Not the nicest part of town but I never felt unsafe.

    Staff were wonderful and helpful. Our room had an air conditioner which was great. The bathrooms were really run down and yuck, tiles seemed mouldy and there was no constant temperature. Bar was great and bar staff were super friendly and charming, as well as the bar events. Clean rooms with large lockers.

    An okay hostel to stay at, definitely will not stay there again. The kitchen is open for a very short period of time. Plus the first night the microwave was not working.
