    Nice hotel/hostel in Roma. The only thing is that they have age restrictions on dormitories.

    Its very near to Termini the main metro and local bus stop of Rome. Restaurnts and street shopping is very nearby. Frequent and so many bus services nearby the hostel. Location wise perfect. Bathroom and toilets are clean, friendly stuff, they will help you to make the trip successful. Only the shower tap water flow is very slow, it takes a bit more time to take shower. Otherwise very good.

    The place is great, but the doors of the bedrooms make so much noise when people have to close them. They do not bring towels, but the bedrooms were really nice and clean, and the breakfast was really good.

    It's a good hostel to stay near about 12 min walking to termini Station which is the main station in rome, the most nicer thing in this hostel that there is only just 1 level dorm not 2 or 3 levels, and the room is wide

    Staying in the hostel make sure you bring a towel with you! You can pay €3.50 to get a towel here but it is a hand towel! Also there is a kitchen with a microwave, jug and fridge - but no bowls/plates/cups/cutlery. There was no aircon but the room was clean and a god size,showers were small but good temperature and pressure. The rooftop terrace was great to go and relax on after a day of exploring the city and the location was close to two metro stations and Termini train station.

    I was put in a 5 bed dormitory but paid for a 4 bed one. I was robbed on the very first morning I stayed there and the staff didn’t help me at all. Someone took all mu money from my luggage and bag, they opened it and searched for it, all my stuff was close to my bed and my luggage had a lock. Staff didn’t help me on calling for the police neither offered me any support at all, in their words “nothing we can do”. Location is good and the place is clean, but you might as well not sleep.

    My room was stuffy and dark and none of the lights/ electricity worked. I tried flipping some switches on the control panel that was in my room (odd) and that did not work. No air conditioning which is a deal breaker for me traveling to Rome in August. Bathrooms are not en-suite and hard to find. Lockers are in the hallway not in the room. I didn’t even unpack my stuff I just went to the front desk to ask for a refund which they refused to give me & I found a new hostel to stay in.
