Frances Dumlao thinks…

"We had excellent wifi in our room and the lady at the front desk gave us great tips on where and when to travel to Rome's busiest sights. She gave us information on closing times and bus routes.…"

Liked: Andrea, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful with the information. The bed was clean.

Disliked: The bathroom should have a towel or rug on the floor to protect the slippiness and dirty marks of the floor after the shower. The location of the property was more than 5 minutes walk, it should be 10 to 15 minutes walk form the termini station.

Liked: quiet warm well located good wifi. decent breakfast.

Disliked: not much social atmosphere outside breakfast. no lockers in room or same floor. 6 rooms one bath = wait. no hangers. only one electrical outlet . although after the Academy Hostel in Florence I'm spoiled. Of the 4 hostels I stayed this trip. Academy was the best, vintage hostel in paris 2nd and Mosaic 3rd and Ca contarini in Venice last.

Liked: It is within walking distance from Termini station and also to the two metro lines. Staff is very friendly and you can check in and leave luggage even during cleaning times.

Disliked: The pictures and name "Mosaic Hotel" allude a romantic or nice atmosphere, but the common area, the floors and especially the bathroom were bare and lacking any decoration or niceness. It was directly on a quite loud road, luckily we had a window to the other end. There is only one single bathroom/shower for 3-4 rooms with 4 beds each. Luckily there were not so many guests in october. The rooms are filled with both boys and girls, I was surprised as I was not asked about this and was thus a little surprised when a guy entered our room.

Liked: It's open 24 hours and it's really safe and secure. Piazza della Republica and Termini train station are only a few minutes walk, so it's easy to get around the City by underground. Also several bus stops are close to the hostel, so no problem to go around even while the underground is shut for works.

Disliked: The hostel web site is only in English (not even in italian!) and part of the staff barely speaks italian. The self service breakfast is fine, but plates and bowls are so few and small... The beds are good, with wooden slates, but mattresses and pillows are of low quality.

Liked: Things that I really enjoyed about the Mosaic Hostel where: * The location was very convenient and easy to find from the Termini Station * The staff were friendly and helpful when it came to questions about the bus system * The travellers that I met were very friendly and eager to engage * There wasn't too much outside noise from the streets * Free place to store luggage if you arrive early

Disliked: Some things that I disliked about the Mosaic Hostel: * I wish there had been a little lamp rather than the harsh main light * The toilet was a little iffy when it came to flushing * The beds were pretty hard...but some people like that * The atmosphere wasn't the most exciting -- I wish there had been more of a lounge area with couches Over all it was a nice hostel. I'll be honest, I only stayed there for one evening so there is only so much I can share.

Liked: The place is in a nice area, and quiet. The staff are very nice, but overworked.

Disliked: Although the staff are great, the owner could stand to renovate the common area and hire more people help during peak hours. There's absolutely no atmosphere. Nobody talks. A bit expensive. The air conditioning was a lie.
