Liked: Can't beat the location. Right on the beach. Our Private Double was large and had plenty of room. Large bathroom in the room which was a nice change from other hostels where we stayed.

Disliked: Not the easiest place to get to the airport from. Information about the Cortal bus in the packet that the give you is only semi correct. Make sure you ask the bus driver at Lido Central if that bus is going to the airport because not all of the them do. Easier to take a taxi, but also more expensive. Also, not a lot of places to eat right by the hostel so you may have to do some walking for a good meal.

Liked: Even though it is outside the city, its a little be quieter and the transit back isn't too bad. I had no problem using the train and bus and found them to be efficient in getting me to/from Rome. The staff was very helpful, however they don't speak English fluently. I was able to communicate with them in Italian however, so if you know Italian, you're set. English will work too, but there is still that language barrier. Bathrooms was clean when I first arrived, and over the course of 3 days it became a little dirty, though more so due to the other guests in my room. I started in a 6 man dorm room, and ended up only having 2 other patrons (one night there were 4) in the room. I wouldn't say security is the best here, so if you bring valuables, I would highly recommend that you take advantage of the free lock deposit box they offer. Probably not the most secure, but they worked fine to store my watch, keys, notebook, and wallet/passport. I had some loose change in the room which was 'borrowed' by one of the guests staying with me, nothing much, maybe 4 euro total, but still, if you want to keep it safe, best to lock it up. Bed was for the most part comfortable. Hard to really sleep well with the humidity/heat. No A/C but that's understandable, the nights were generally a bit cooler anyway due to the sea being so close. Location to the beach is also great, less than a minutes walk across the street and you are there. Upon inspection, bed looked to be in good shape, with no signs of bugs/insects. Sheets and towels were clean when I arrived, and I just used the same set for 3 days (they say they change the linens every 3 days, but I would not know since I left morning of day 3 anyway). Shower was nice and hot, though I generally take cool showers anyway. Breakfast was probably the best deal. I wouldn't say all you can eat per se, but I was able to eat to my fill every morning. They had an assortment of cakes/breads as well as 2 kinds of cereal and some milk/juice. Overall a great deal in my opinion. I also took some extra seal stuff to eat throughout the day. Worked out pretty good. If you don't mind the ~1 hour commute time, then I would say this is a great hostel.

Disliked: Directions were a little confusing, but was able to figure it out. Some of the other patrons were annoying, but only in the sense of them blabbing about their blogs and wanting to go home. If you don't like traveling, then leave. Nothing else really. It's a toss up as to whether you have a great experience or a lesser one depending on your roommates. If you're traveling in a group, then you'll probably have a great time. In smaller numbers, you could get stuck with annoying people, but thats life I suppose.

Liked: The hostel is literally right on the beach! The rooms are quite large, the bathrooms are nice, and they offer free breakfast! I think I ate a whole cake over a week. Half of the staff were extremely welcoming, friendly, and helpful. It was a quiet sleeping environment, too.

Disliked: Unfortunately, it's a long trip to Rome, and the trains stop running at 9:30pm, with an alternative night bus that's frequently overcrowded. Also, the other half of the staff is standoffish and unhelpful.

Liked: Spacious

Disliked: Despite being so spacious, there was hardly anything in this hostel. There were no lockable lockers. No real common area. It was hard to meet people. Terrible location.
