Liked: The location was great right near the roma street station. Various other hostels up the road. Good walk to central

Disliked: The bathrooms were always dirty, there was no place to leave your clothes in the shower and no bench space in the entire bathroom. Also had no hand towels or hand dryers. NO LOCKERS!Does not offer towel with linen. If you want one you have to purchase. If they even have any to purchase... Moved around three times.

Liked: So island good location

Disliked: Staff were quite rude and not very helpful.Room wasn't the cleanest, they were super strict about staying outside with drinks and for a backpackers (I've stayed in ALOT) I was quite disappointed about how inflexible they were. It's fine for a short stay but I definitely wouldn't go back.

Liked: Everything was new, so the rooms and the carpet were clean. The roof terrace was nice and it had a pool table. The tv room was quite good, with comfy couches to sit on.

Disliked: The toilets on the first floor were unisex, so they more often that not ended up being absolutely filthy and p***** on. When it rained, most of the terrace was unusable, so you had to squeeze onto two picnic tables. Internet is really expensive here compared to other places, and it doesnt reach into the rooms.
