    I found it ok, the room/dorm was dark during the day due the shutters only opening a quarter. The breakfast was mainly sweets jams etc. I would have gone back there had it not been for the arrogance of the owner, I spilled a little water from my bottled water I asked the reception for paper to wipe it dry, the lady said not to worry she will get the cleaner to do it Then There was the foyer the toilet door that did not lock, and he made such a fuss about about both incidents.

    Right near one of the best gelato places & a good restaurant with patio, also in good walking distance to many sites and not too bad a bus ride to the Vatican area. Rooms are very bare, mattress not too comfy but has what you need. Did not have problems with wifi. Breakfast is lots of sugar and carbs, very sweet croissants etc and not too good tasting coffee from the machine, but since it is included it was still appreciated. Single washroom for a hall of people but was always clean. Loved AC!

    We really enjoyed our stay at the hostel. The location and staff are both great. They even printed our boarding passes off for us, free of charge. The breakfast was traditional Italian, with sweet pastries and coffee, but there was cereal and bread with jam available as well. However, the ensuite bathroom of our 4 bed hostel room was COVERED in mold. The walls, the tile, the shower, the floor, everything. It stank of mold as well. Luckily there was a communal floor bathroom down the hall.

    This place was good! Good location, great free breakfast, nice staff. The bad parts were that we were on the fifth floor and the wifi didn't work well in our room. Also, the floor in our room and bathroom was really dirty. Other than those things, it was good!

    It was fine, nothing spectacular. I did appreciate that each section (floor) of rooms has its own key. Being able to leave bags there while I had a whole day of exploring on my departure day was nice as well (and without a fee). Location was decent, 30 mins walk to the sites but about 10 mins from the train station with decent restaurants nearby

    Mosaic Hostel was not what I expected. Pros: the room and lobby felt clean, the breakfast was more extensive than most hostels and the location near Termini station was convenient. Cons: As a solo traveler I found it very difficult to be here. They do not offer kitchen space to store food or prep anything on your own. The rooms are quite small and there is no personal space. There is no communal atmosphere to this hostel and it is very hard to meet people. Would not stay again.

    The place is far from the main turistic places, the rooms are like cells, with the minimal ventilation. The staff was not friendly, just one girl was nice and gave me a city map. According this website the prices mentioned here included the touristic taxes but they asked for them again in cash. I just recommend this place in case of emergency.

    Came to this hostel b/c they were one of the few that accepted credit cards -- my ATM card was stolen so I had no cash. However, on arrival they said that I must pay the tax in cash, which was not listed anywhere on webpage or on their own website. Every other hostel in Italy allowed me to pay this tax with card. Upon telling them my situation the front desk guy was super rude but eventually allowed me to pay with card. Besides from this experience, we had prettyclean rooms but no atmosphere
