    The ended up giving me a room in the hotel next to the hostel so my rating is not for the hostel itself. The hotel was really clean , with fridge and microwave.

    The staff was nice. The check in isn’t until 3pm however they do have a place to store your luggage if you want to go out. Most of my hostels always has something complimentary but you had to pay for breakfast and they provide lockers outside of the rooms that if you have a pad lock you can use. Bed were fine to sleep on.

    The Hostel itself was good and clean. The reception is at their sister hotel (Des Artistes) and thats where the problem was. The reception was not friendly unfortunately, the guy clearly favored people checking in des artistes to those checking into carlitos rooms. If you don’t want them why offer checking them in in the first place ? He sold me the towel for double the price advertised on the website. One night we were five people in the room while it was supposedly a 4 bed mixed room.

    More a hotel than a hostel, which made it hard to socialise and meet other people. The room also had no air con, only a fan which meant that it was too hot to sleep properly but we did go in mid-summer during the heat wave so probably not an issue at other times of year. Excellent location - we could walk to everything we wanted to, and it was close to lots of bars and cafes which was very useful for breakfast/dinners. No kitchen facilities though so expect to eat out. Very clean.

    Very Good

    Because it is shared with a hotel, they do not abide by the age rule, and I had roommates over the age of 30 and saw old men in the bathroom. The room has no AC which felt like a sauna during the beginning of July. It was modestly clean, bathrooms were dirty by noon. Front desk was very helpful. 25min walk from Trevi and Spanish Steps. 45min walk from Colosseum and Forum.
