Disliked: lot of graffiti in the neighborhood (but that's everywhere in Rome today). Furnishings a bit dated/worn but consistent with the price

Liked: “Different Hostel Experience” Reviewed yesterdayNEW When we got there, we did not see a Hostel, but rather a block of apartments made for teenager chillings. The room looked like a regular messy teenage room, but was comfortable, although the AC was charged before a certain hour. As for the staff, Gianluca, was very great and funny, although he made fun of the french team during every match of the World Cup and was immensely patriotic, but not all of the staff was as nice. The atmosphere was great, the common area was very fun and animated which allowed us to meet very nice people during our stay. The location of the hostel is ok, as it is close to a metro station, but far from the centre. They had free coffee and cereal, which made my travel companion very happy since he gets pretty grumpy when he doesn't get his breakfast. We had a great experience, but the price was a bit expensive for the quality of the hostel.

Disliked: maria left no negative feedback.

Liked: The place was nice, but i made a mistake booked for the wrong day. They gave me the extra room in the kitchen and it was dreadful. I believe if i had gotten a regular room it would have been fine.

Disliked: I wished that kitchen room they stuck me in was not a heater. I got so sick in there. It ruined my stay in Rome after that.

Liked: It was close to a subway station, which facilitates the access to the city's turistic points.

Disliked: The little guy on the staff seemed nice at the beginning, explaining to us how to get around the city and all. But out of a sudden, he already thinks he's our BFF, at a point where he auto-invite himself to go out with the guests, and he even enters the room all the time without even nocking (room doors have locks and keys, but they never stay locked. And that is really anoying). Also, The hostel is at a residential building, which is OK. But because of that, the guests cannot make any noise AT ALL, otherwise the neighbours will complain and the recepitionist will come to your room and tell you to shut up (and that IS NOT OK).

Liked: Very friendly and helpfull service, Gianluca did a good job 👍 Near hostel you'll find the best food ever, not so expensive than in the city center. The good location will make you feel the real italian atmosphere with a lot of small restrants and cafes. For that price I definitely recommend this hostel in great city Rome.

Liked: Really nice owner.

Disliked: Kitchen big enough for one person at a time. Location was a pretty far walk from the sights. The metro was close, but paying 1.50 euro every trip to and from the city center defeats the purpose of booking a less expensive place.

Liked: Convenient access to centre of Rome. Nice cheap student restaurant downstairs - 6:90 euro for 2 courses with bread and drink. Nice dorms with balconies where you can dry your laundry. Decent windows - so plenty of fresh air!

Disliked: There can be lengthy periods when no staff are available, though they are friendly when there! Shortage of kitchenware - only one, max 2 can use the kitchen at the same time! Fine in off season, but in peak season???

Liked: Small hostel with only 3 or 4 rooms so there was a nice homey atmosphere, owners were friendly, kitchen was clean and useful, location was great and easy to get to other places in Rome by metro, grocery store is 2 minutes down the street and there are many gelato places around,

Disliked: Had to share bathroom with room of 6 people, bathroom floor gets dirty easily, some beds do not have ladders so it is difficult to get to the top bunk, owners were not available 24 hours so I was unable to check-in properly on the first day and unable to rent a towel on arrival when they weren't there- also had problems with wi-fi one night but this was resolved after a few hours

Liked: The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and enthusiastic! The value for money for this property was incredible as the location was very convenient - just 5 mins away from the Metro station and right within the heart of Rome.

Disliked: Quite difficult to find - directions were very good but there was no signage on the outside of the building, just a small label on the intercom buzzer.

Liked: Owner was friendly and helpful and most spaces were clean, only the kitchen was a little dirty but bearable! Was cute and cosy

Disliked: It is a bit away from the center of Rome, but 1.50 on the metro really isn't bad at all! It's also then a fair walk to the hostel from the station when you have bags, but really I'm just being picky. Kitchen could have been cleaner.

Liked: Staying at twin cities was great! The place was smaller than other hostels but made you feel at home. The location was good too because it wasn't directly in the city center but that added to its charm as you didn't feel like a tourist. The place to eat downstairs was great, probably the best kept secret in Roma. Also close to lots of gelato places. Staff very accommodating and did anything they could to help you out !

Disliked: Wish there was a bigger common room!
