Liked: The hostel is just a couple minutes walk form the train station that goes into Rome and the bus stop where you can be dropped off/go to Ciampino airport. The town is nice. There were generally staff at the front desk, even late at night.The bathrooms were not great, but worked.

Disliked: The "breakfast" included was a coffee and small pastry from a shop next door; not what I would call a breakfast. I was placed in a 6 person dorm room even though I paid for a 4 person. However, there were less than 4 people in the room.

Liked: Staff was friendly Comfortable clean we went for a few days mid week, and it was then 29$ a night, definitely worth the money, although I believe other days it gets more pricey. Good alternative to hostels however.

Disliked: AC was concentrated in only one area of the room location is not the best if you want to enjoy Rome. We needed to take the Ciampino airport from there, so it was convenient for us as there was a bus shuttle (2 euros 50 if I remember correctly) from the train station that got us there in about10 minutes. The hotel is still a good 15 min walk from the train station though. Be careful if you have big suitcases.

Liked: Very near to Ciampino station and a 10 mins bus ride to Rome Ciampino airport. We had to catch the 8am flight, and thankfully there's a 550am bus (bus stop is just around the corner). Breakfast was ready when we went down at 520am. The private double room that we booked was really spacious and clean too. We were initially not that receptive when we saw the negative reviews, but all seemed pretty decent! Definitely worth a one night stay if you have to catch an early flight at Ciampino airport! Btw, there's an awesome kebab stall just around the corner too! Wifi's available for 2 Euros too.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike about!

Liked: Close to the train station and bus stop

Disliked: I booked a Dorm (4 beds) Female only and got the confirmation by email. Unfortunately I was sleeping with 2 men in the room. After I complained the guy on the reception said that there are no female dorms left... It wasn't a big problem for me but this could be better organized...

Liked: The property is 10 minutes away from Rome's Ciampino Airport and therefore beautifully located if you want a place close to the Airport. If you want to stay in rome itself, this is a bit far out. The hostel is well presented, nicely decorated and represents value for money. The rooms were colourful and clean and although it is hardly paradise, the affordable price makes it an attractive option.

Disliked: On the whole the property was excellent, but the bathrooms were slightly dirty on the floor, there was no toilet paper in the morning and no staff on hand to supply anymore!. These are minor complaints though!

Liked: This is the ideal place to stay if you're catching a super-early flight from Ciampino Airport. The breakfast comprising of a coffee and cornetto is at the cafe next door, and if (like us) you have to get the FIRST bus to the airport, you'll be pleased to know that the cafe opens around 5.30am.

Disliked: There appears to be no nightlife whatsoever in Ciampino. But if (like us) you have to get up at dawn to catch your flight, this shouldn't affect you at all!

Liked: rooms are very clean. location is very close to ciampino station and relatively easy to find. staff are nice and helpful.

Disliked: the area near ciampino station is very quiet and not so good. if the reason you decided to choose this hostel is only to be able to catch an early flight from ciampino airport, you'd better think again. the earliest shuttle service from ciampino train station to ciampino airport is not until 6 am. if your flight is early, you have to take a taxi which will cost you 20 euros. if you stay in the city (near termini station), there's a shuttle service from termini station to ciampino airport at 4.30 am. easier and cheaper. i think it'll be wise to just stay in the city. but if you want to explore rome (outside the city center e.g castel gandolfo etc), this hostel could be a nice choice.
