Liked: Good vibe with bar downstairs but drinks were not the best and free pizza on offer was very limited. Get there early if you plan to have this for dinner. Our bathroom was very dirty when we first checked in and only one bed was cleaned but after a quick word with the staff they immediately came and fixed it.

Disliked: Luggage room was not overly secure but you can store for free.

Liked: Pleasant rooms with air conditioning! On my second night, the 6 bed dorm had 2 bathrooms, which were both nice. This dorm also had individual reading lights for each bed. The owner was friendly and polite. Open 24 hours a day. Great location near the central train station. A glass lift made it easy for getting luggage up to higher floors.

Disliked: The bar constantly had MTV or some other rubbish music channel on - it was like a low-grade students union. Some people might like that, but personally I wasn't so keen on shouting over 90s pop hits (and trying to ignore the big flatscreen TV on the back wall) when trying to get to know fellow travellers. And, I was especially not keen on this when trying to have breakfast! MTV, loud, at breakfast? Also, there were plastic throw-away cups and cutlery with the breakfast... why?? Not good environmental credentials.

Liked: Great location.

Disliked: This seemed like a place that has slackened off. It claimed to be really clean and at reception I was told the rooms were cleaned twice a day but know for a fact that ours had not seen the cleaner for two days when I queried them. Admittedly a cleaner was sent straight up (after a performance by myself though). The cleaner could use some retraining as the rooms weren't much different afterwards.

Liked: It elt more like a hotel than a hostel. The rooms and hostel in general were very clean and well maintained.

Disliked: no common room so the opportunity to socialise isnt there. There is a bar, however no one goes in there during the daytime.

Liked: I liked the beds which were comfortable, and the rooms had plenty of space in them.

Disliked: I disliked that they said the bar offers wi-fi connection when in reality they only give you one hour free - thereafter you have to pay for your wi-fi access.

Liked: I haven't enjoyed all the things that the hostel offers, like the free pizza and the internet. But it its a good place to stay.

Disliked: Althought it has a good location because it is close to Termini station, it is not safe to walk there on night because it is dark in front of Termini station if you want to go to another places and it has some homeless people there. It is better to walk in group of 02 people or more, specially if you are a womam.
