Luisa Turner thinks…

"The roof garden was fabulous- myself and my two teenage children were up there every afternoon to have a picnic lunch and most evenings before the rowdy crowd ! It was an oasis of calm in the middle…"

Liked: Basic facilities were clean and modern. All additional facilities were well thought through.

Disliked: Professional to the point of soulessness. Staff answer your questions before you finish first half of question sentence. Nice to get the information but not nice to be treated like you should have known the answer in the first place when you have just arrived in a place you have never been before. Write a FAQ sheet on the back of the free map if you are tired of answering the same questions and ask guest to read through while you process reservation.

26 February 2014

Liked: I didn't like the atmosphere nor the interior.

Disliked: The hostel works like a machine. I have never experienced being constantly refered by the reception as "Sir", which creates distance to the traveller. Yet they were not as polite: short, quick answers. Upon complaint that their six (!) computers didn't work, they simply slammed a one euro coin on the table, which is correct but not nice. The beds are made (pillow and linen), but the duvée which cannot be washed comes regularily without sheet which is disgusting (yet I received an extra linen for that). The bath room lacks soap, as well as cleanlisness, as the shower head was full of fungi

Liked: Very friendly and enthusiastic staff. Amazing location (less then 5 mins walk from Termini station).

Disliked: Bunk beds were a bit problematic. No ladders so getting up and down was a hassel. Wifi wasn't the greatest but didn't really detract from my stay.

Liked: I like the location because it was really close to the train station and I think that you can go walking to most of the Roma sightseeings. Although Termini looks not very secure if you walk with more people in night there is not problem. There is a place where to buy really good and a complete pizza since 5€ just in the corner.

Disliked: Would be nice if they had a kitchen or something for heat the water, also take into account that the lockers are really small (our backpacks didn't fit).

Liked: It was clean and the rooms were spacious

Disliked: There was no sense of community, the common areas were not particularly welcoming, the staff were not helpful, welcoming or well informed. It is just another big hostel with no soul or character.

Liked: The room was really big and it felt really secure because although there was no lock out, you must be buzzed in at night time. The air conditioning, although noisy, kept the room at a warm temperature. It was close to the station which made it especially easy to get to the airport and back and was walking distance to all the sites that we saw.

Disliked: The lockers didn't work well and the ones that did needed bigger locks than we had, although you could buy others downstairs.
