    Different location to address listed but was emailed clear instructions on where to go two days before and the building is really secure and the rooms are light and clean and have big windows which is great during summer. The staff were helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Not the most social place but if you just want a place to chill for quiet couple of nights then absolutely do it. No complaints

    I was lost at first because the location on google maps was the old one, so it took me time to find it. Other than that everything was good.

    Not a bad place to stay for a couple nights. Close to collesum, st giovanni's basillica and the metro. Be sure to verify its location as its different then on google maps. It was clean and had an electric hotplate you can cook with.

    It is worth mentioning that this hostel has relocated. Unfortunately i didn't know about this until i arrived at the wrong place. I was then left in the middle of Rome feeling rather lost and vulnerable. Despite the poor communication, the staff member was friendly and welcoming. I only met one member of staff onsite and he was usually around from 8-6. Despite the leaking air conditioning which caused my clothes to soak, my stay was ok. The hostel is a twenty minute walk from the colosseum.

    Hostel address had changed and we weren't told about it. Was told they'd emailed us but we never received a single email. Did not apologize for the confusion at all. Weird hostel, pretty much a converted apartment in a apartment building. They never replaced the toilet paper the whole 5 days we were there. I had to go down the hall and take some off table down there. No sanitary bin either for majority of time we were there. Pretty much no facilities to cook. Would not recommend.

    After I reached Ciak Hostel, I spotted a notice left on the front of the apartment that had the following instruction 'Dear Guest The CIAK has moved to Via Veio, 52/A'. Not a single email was sent beforehand and I had to walk 20 minutes with my heavy backpack and no cell coverage. Via Veio, 52/A is a flat which is temporarily working on behalf of CIAK. ROOM: Beside the extremely bad smell of vomit the bathroom was over flowed with feces. We tried spending most of our time outside except night.
