    A large clean hostel located near the central station about a km from the colosseum. All staff were really helpful and friendly. On arrival you are immediately informed about the events of the hostel 'party nights. I will rate them well, as I truly do recommend them. A hostel with great customer service is somewhere that I want to be!

    Good place to stay, was super clean with big dorm rooms that had ac! Make sure you close the windows at night otherwise the noise form the road is super loud. Good location, about 20 mins walk from the coliseum as well as the Trevi fountain. Staff were super helpful as well

    The staff were so helpful, amiable, and overall amazing! Everything was very clean and the bar in the hostel is a great addition. Only complaint is that one night I didn’t sleep at all because the AC was on WAY too cold and I couldn’t change it. Maybe just my own preference & also at least they have AC? Enjoyed my stay overall, great location by Termini and I was able to walk to Trevi, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, and Colosseum all in one day! Thanks!!

    It was okay. We liked the atmosphere and staff was pretty good. Only bigger problem was that there were some weird flies in the bathroom. Also the location was a bit far. 20 minutes to colosseum but it was bearable. It was an okay stay.

    The hostel seemed to be in a dog place when we checked it. Yes right around the corner from the Roma Termini but the vine of the area was off. We stayed in room 404 and the aircon sucked. It sucked so much 2 of our boys got no sleep for 2 nights and pleaded the group to leave and go elsewhere. The rest of the group slept poorly as well. We had booked for 4 nights but left early simply because of the sleeping conditions. The hostel itself is fine enough. Just us personally didnt like it.
