    Superb

    12 Aug 2018
    This hostel was recommended to me by a fellow traveler, and I was not disappointed by my experience. The location is excellent in Trastevere, which is a casual but trendy place to explore with lots of bars and restaurants. It is 10 to 15 minutes' walk to the Vatican. The staff is excellent, and there is always someone there. Everything was very clean and the courtyard is beautiful. My only recommendation is to buy bug spray or a mister to keep away the mosquitos since it's near the river.

    Fabulous

    Great location for the hostel. Overall good offering of facilities and staff was nice and helpful. Unfortunately because of the heat in Rome, the windows were left open throughout the hostel. There are no screens on the windows. After one night there I had 10 mosquito bites on my arms, legs, and fingers. This was a bummer! Wish there was a way to get screens so tenants did not have to endure this.

    Very Good

    Handy location for all the main sights if walking. Interesting area. Nice clean hostel with lots of space in dorm and no bunk beds. Only issue (probably everywhere in Rome) is the noise at night with the cars/bikes and people walking along road late at night.

    Good

    13 Aug 2018
    Overall this was an okay place to stay. there was a security door to get into the building which gave a comfortable safe vibe. Staff was very nice and helpful with things to do in Rome. The rooms were okay, nothing special. the Bathroom in our room was still dirty and old used razors were still in the shower from the previous person. EW! They said breakfast would be supplied, but there was only a few pieces of cake and watered down coffee.. good for a few nights, but nothing special.
