    Very cute hostel. Stayed with three friends in a four bed dorm, were very happy with everything. The room was huge, no bunk beds and everything was very clean. There were several shared bathrooms on the floor, so sometimes we had to wait to shower at night but it was never more than a few minutes. About an 8 minute walk from the termini train stop, with a few different metro lines that had stops a little closer so it was really easy to get around the city.

    Good location, the rooms were extremely clean and the staff were very helpful. I can’t fault the place, even the breakfast that seemed a bit expensive, was a buffet and came with fresh fruit and a lot of other fresh options. It too turned out be excellent value for money.

    Super close to a subway stop, making it very easy to get around to all the sites. The walk from Rome Termini felt a smidge dicey, as we were freshly acclimating to the city of Rome, tired from travel, and carrying our packs. We'd have taken the subway if we'd realized how close the stop was. The establishment was pleasant and we appreciated that the hall bathroom facilities still provided ample privacy and space for personal needs. Middle aged mom traveling with teenaged daughter.

    The rooms are basic but clean. Bathroom/shower area also kept very clean but for prude travelers should be noted that it’s unisex-so don’t be shocked to walk in on a huge German in his bikini undies brushing his teeth ladies (some of you might even welcome this experience;). The location was nice, near the train and subway and the neighborhood felt safe given the number of embassies and armed guards on the streets. Also some nice restaurants and cafes within walking distance.

    Good location for the price. The place lacks any cool hostel atmosphere, however you can still visit Yellow bar in the parallel street, which is full of open minded travelers. Btw, what made me annoyed was the electricity “plug-card” system in the room. Of course it is ok if you have your private room but when you share it with 3 other people who keep entering and leaving the room and thus turning off the electricity, it is stupid.

    Is a good option to stay in Rome,is clean and the showers and the rooms are good for the money and also as people say it is more like a hotel,is not good if you are solo traveler. But,If I go again I would be again there. And the staff is ok,not friendly,they just do they work.

    The main place was at good location but the hostel given to us was very lonely place. There was no reception active at this hostel . You need to connect by phone to main place. Usually hostels are lively and happenings but this place was very silent and if only one person in room it may be scary for him or her. It was very clean and good toilet bathroom but no kitchen at this place and no breakfast. You need to go to Main hostel for everything and in night the roads are very silent.
