We offer beds in dorms or private rooms. All the rooms are very large and quiet and overlook the inner garden or the typical red rooftops. There are no bunk beds. Each room features ceiling fans and include linen.

The living room features a kitchen corner and a fridge for the guests' use. Breakfast is not included, but we offer american coffe and tea.

    I love this hostel! I felt safe staying here the whole place had such a lovely feeling. I staying in 3 bed room the rooms are large and you have plenty of space for your belongings. I shared my room with two lovely ladies one was from Australia and the other from New Zealand. This was my first experience staying in a hostel and I definitely would do this again. The location had plenty of places to eat and drink. If I was to travel to Rome I would definitely stay here. Fantastic!

    This was my 4th hostel to stay in, and it was my favorite so far. Everything was so clean, the workers were so friendly and helpful, and it was very spacious. We were able to walk to everything, so it was a nice location.

    Overall our stay was good. The bathroom could do with a decent clean as it had a funny smell and looked dirty. On the website if states you can pay with card, however when we arrived we were told we have to pay in cash which did cause an inconvenience. Location is about 30 min walk to the main sites in Rome but is very close to the Vatican, there were also many restaurants nearby making it a lot easier on an evening.

    I stayed at Orsa Maggiore back in 2004 and I don't remember it being noisy. My room back then was in a different part, so maybe that's why. The main problem is that the reception desk is in the corridor where some of the rooms are, and on the night I was there the receptionist was entertaining three friends until almost midnight. The phone rang a few times past midnight and also there was a dinging noise which may have been the lifts. Also, the shared bathroom could've been cleaner.
