Liked: There was a very good atmosphere. Litho uh the pub crawl and club night were expensive , they were at your disposala me a good means of getting to know people from your hostel. The rooms were very clean with good lavatory facilities. It is located a 30 minute walking distance to the main tourist attractions and a 5 minute walk from the train station making it ideal and convenient. There are numerous inexpensive restaurants located nearby.

Disliked: The wifi was terrible with a sign in mechanism that worked haphazardly.

Liked: Great location- 5 minute walk to termini train station , so easy to reach all the major attractions by metro. Very quiet at night considering it's central location ... We enjoyed very much !

Disliked: Bathroom smelt a little bit if I was being fussy...But maybe that was more down to our roommates!

Liked: Room was very clean as was the private bathroom. The shower was a good size and also clean. Plenty of hot water. Rooftop area was pretty cool.

Disliked: Some of the staff were really helpful and friendly where as others were just rude and if you asked for help it was a huge effort to help you and they would much rather not help. Pub crawl was not great, free bar is good but then going to only one bar before the nightclub is not exactly a pub crawl.
