    It is perfect for a weekend trip. Close to the Vatican and centre and worth it's money. The owners are very friendly and will help you if you have any problems.

    Waited over almost 2 hours to check in... WiFi only worked in the main room. There were only 2 outlets for a room with 8 beds.. everything is kinda far.. probably wouldn’t recommend if you’re on a budget.

    This was a last minute booking for my friends and I, and we chose it because it had okay reviews and it was a cheaper option. The worst thing about this hostel was the cleanliness. 9/10 times you go to the bathroom, there is NO toilet paper!!! The bathroom overall was very unclean and gross, and they also did not provide any soap in the bathroom. There was also one outlet in our room, which was a four person shared bedroom. The long dark driveway you have to walk up is scary to walk up at night.
