    Great hostel. The staff were extremely helpful, kind and accommodating the entire time. It's incredibly hospitable, clean, comfortable, and welcoming. Great location, easy to get to all parts of the city by bus and metro. There were some activities that allowed you to meet with new people like tours, and the pasta night at the bar. I would stay here once a return Rome.

    This was my first hostel experience but it was so wonderful. Brilliant location, right next to Termini station, supermarket and restaurants. Excellent staff, super friendly and helpful. The pasta night and the night out party was really fun. The bar and the kitchen was definitely a plus. Would definitely return.

    I loved staying at the Downtown Hostel. The staff and guests were all great. There is always something to do. While I did walk to a lot of sites, The Downtown hostel is really walking distance from any of the attractions and it is extremely close the metro Termini which can take you anywhere you need. Such a great experience, would definitely recommend and would absolutely stay again the next time I'm in Rome!

    Very easy and conveniently located, 200 meters from Termini station, A very clean and safe area. I feel safe walking in the surroundings after 11PM . Wi-fi signal squeaky in 4th floor (but not a big problem). Well equip kitchen. Staff was very kind and helpful and they have a 24 hours reception. I stayed in a female dorm, bathrooms were outside and were extremely clean. All in all, a convenient and charming hostel.

    A kind of party hostel where the whole staff just wants to make sure you have a great time! Best one I've stayed in yet. Clean, friendly, all around great. The walking tours are awesome and the pasta party was unreal! You can walk to most of the major sights and it's only minutes from the main train station from termini, where you can take the subway anywhere else including the Vatican. Awesome hostel!

    One of the best hostel experiences I’ve had so far. Extremely fun atmosphere— so easy to meet new people to hang out with. The rooms are huge and the bathrooms are great. Location is super central as well. That being said the internet is really bad, so I took some points off.

    Overall good experience. Great location right next to Rome termini station and only a 20 minute walk from most to ur sit attractions but easy to get a bus as well. Had a 8 bed female dorm. Lockers were a bit difficult to open but other than that everything was fine. Room clean and bathrooms clean enough. Staff super nice and helpful and able to rent locker for 2 euro to leave luggage in after check out. Would recommend.

    The staff was amazing, super helpful and knowledgeable. I was only in Rome for a quick one night layover. Location was great because it was super close the center of town and all trains, busses etc. But... it was in a super scent part of town. So if I was staying for a longer amount of time. Not sure I’d want to stay there. Also I hear the other location a a roof top bar. I think I’d like that better All in all this was great for what I needed it for

    Bathrooms were not clean, no locks are provided (you must buy them), and the location is close to everything but feels like a sketchier place to stay. I would not recommend this if you are solo traveling; however, I imagine it would be better if you were traveling in a group.
