Liked: Some of the nicest hostel rooms I have ever stayed in. The bathrooms were nice, and cleaned daily. The rooms has lockers, they were not large enough to store large backs but a regular sized school bag and laptop could easily fit in them. The staff was helpful for the most part, however some of them did not speak the best english (expected in a foreign country) and did not seem to know the best and cheapest ways to enter museums and monuments. The lift to the rooms is a great convenience.

Disliked: The internet cards are a bit expensive and dont always work properly. The communal computers are slow and buggy too. The hostel lacks a proper common room and kitchen, which slightly cripples the social atmosphere. The bar is the closest thing to a common room, but isnt the best place to socialize.

Liked: all was amazing! stayed there only for 1 night, but it was my 2nd time there. i like this place. the best thing is that there is a bar just downstairs, so u dont need to go out at night, and it works till midnight. rooms were clean as usual. the location is perfect, just 2 min from termini and in the walking distance to everything. the chek out was at 10, but i left there my bags till 4pm, and also set there for couple of hous and nobody ask me to leave. thanks for such a good a hostel. when i will be in rome next time, i know where 2 go.

Disliked: the price is a lit bit high for me, but u know 4 what u pay

Liked: nice and big enough bar room to meet people and have a drink together; one can also dance in front of the counter; the bar is open until 1am. there is a computer room with ~ 6 computers. one can grab a slice of pizza in the evening (this offer seems to be limited until end of march 2011).

Disliked: the elevator didn't always work in the way one would expectv (although never out of service during the stay). coffee seems to be without caffeine breakfast is a bit ``italian style'' (no cheese or ham, only sweet marmelade)

Liked: Staff were helpful and friendly

Disliked: you get one bed sheet and you have to decide whether to put that over the dirty bed cover or under the dirty blanket.. I went with putting it over the bed because the cover looked like it had spots or stains on it. The pillow case looked unwashed also, with a black hair lying in the middle of it.

Liked: Rooms are nice, like a hotel. Location very good, near termini. Surrounding area full of restaurants. Very comfortable.

Disliked: the breakfast was TERRIBLE! Stone cold hard rock buns, coffee was tasteless, cereals cheap. Worst breakfast of my trip. Toilet tends to get flooded n very dirty, the rooms were not cleaned during the 2 days I stayed, had to notify the reception for replacement of toilet rolls!
