    Superb

    The hostel was very nice, but it could have been a little bit cleaner. Overall, that was the only not great thing about this hostel, because everything was as said, the staff was helpful. The location was good, 15 minutes from Vatican, felt safe, there were a couple of bus stops near the hostel (3 and 10 min walk). Unfortunately, there was no metro station near the hostel, but it was easy to get there by bus. It was also very nice to have coffee in the morning which they offered free of charge.

    I am really glad this place exists. The staff are all really awesome and helpful. I’ve never stayed at a hostel that looked out for/cared about it’s guests as much as this one. No fees for baggage check and letting you still stay at the hostel and use kitchen and common space after you’ve checked out-this is really great. Cool feminist place!

    Fabulous

    The accommodations were fine for what i needed,i was visiting my daughter at college . The mattress was bit uncomfortable ,but for the price I would suggest adding breakfast contentila juice coffee and pastries, Having a pot of coffee with no creamer does not cut it .The lounging sofas could be higher too low to the ground for the more mature crowd. A TV that had shows/news in English would be nice .

    Good

    30 Nov 2018
    Our room flooded while we were there and were forced to move rooms TWICE which was inconvenient and a poor way to handle the situation. The WiFi was absolutely terrible. The rooms are loft style so the walls do not connect to the ceiling and therefore we could hear the room next to us and see their lights. The staff were not the friendliest and I saw them treating other travelers with disrespect in the face of the flood chaos, which isn't an excuse for poor customer service. Location was good.

Orsa Maggiore for Women Only says

We offer a daily cleaning, huge and bright dorms, and staff who speak English, French and Spanish between them.

Our guests can use the beautiful courtyard, have a drink or try the menus at the restaurant. During the summer we put on music events and parties in the garden for free. Paola, Direttrice
