Liked: The room was really comfortable and spacious, and we felt at home. Facilities were in good conditions although sockets were not provided for (we had to use those that connected to the hairdryer and air conditioning). The presence of air conditioning was much appreciated.

Disliked: Breakfast was a little too simple, with packaged bread, spreads, and two cereal varieties with drinks (milk included). In spite of this, it was still a great overall experience! Would definitely stay here again.

Liked: Great place to have fun, get to know people. They have a nice bar with cheap drinks and Pizza every night!

Disliked: That is a big hostel, so it is hard to talk to a staff guy to ask for some travel tips.. And one day, I got a bad tip from one of them... but that is minor... The staff is very friendly.

Liked: This place is awesome. Only 5 minutes walk from the train station. Breakfast is not so good but it is free. They offer pizza slices for supper. Everybody is friendly and nice and there is a bar where everbody meets and have fun. Rooms are clean and there is a terrace on the top of the hostel where you can drink and eat.

Disliked: I recommend this hostel to every young traveller who wanna meet people and be close to all activities in Rome.

Liked: This hostel was in a good location and had a great rooftop patio. The rooms were clean and it was nice having your own bathroom. Stayed in a room with 7 others including one of which was traveling with me. All friendly and nice.

Disliked: This property was not set up well for meeting other travelers. The only place to really meet is in their bar which you cant bring cheap beer and booze in after 6 pm to talk to others. The bar prices were too high for a hostel bar that has a grocery seconds away selling beer for 2 euro compared to their 3 euro for the same beer. Really took away from the back packing and meeting others experience Ive had in all the other cities ive been to.

Liked: Close to the train and metro station. Had pasta dinner included for the nights I was there.

Disliked: I was supposed to stay at the Palace, but got moved to the other hostel. The hostel bathrooms were dirty, smelly, and gross. You had to shower in the same room as the toilet and everything would get soaked. The receptionist wasn't very friendly to myself or other guests that arrived at the same time. Definitely would not stay there again. The hostel doesn't really have a party atmosphere.

Liked: location

Disliked: meh, the "breakfast" was a joke, "free pizza slices" were terrible, the kitchen is tiny and hardly encourages cooking/hanging out, the drinks at the bar are pricy, they skimp on internet (1hr for your whole stay, no matter how long it is). And at 28 euro/night in slow tourism season, i was not very impressed.

Disliked: We had sewage problems in our bathroom which made it smell, we also found EXTREMELY gross fluids on our bed, not even stains meaning they didn't wash the sheets underneath and right by our hostel we saw two men get strangled.
