Adam Strang thinks…

"It's a no-nonsense, no frills hostel. The beds are basic and the rooms have lockers. The showers are fairly decent and the rooms are all kept really clean. The hostel's got an intimate atmosphere…"

Liked: Security, Breakfast, AC, WiFi.

Disliked: Rates somewhat high for hostel, PLUS 2 euro daily tax. Kitchen good but very small. No common area, just one 2 person sofa and 3 very small kitchen tables. If busy, gets crowded. One or two loud and annoying guests can be a nuisance.

Liked: It felt very safe. It was small and intimate. There were singles as well as families staying there. Not a party atmosphere at all. Breakfast was great and very relaxed.

Disliked: No air conditioning. Also, we took the bus to get us to the train station. We took the correct bus, but it took us all around Rome and we missed our train.

Liked: The staff were very helpful, and the bathrooms were all quite clean. It was nice to have a proper bed after camping for so long! I was allowed to leave my bag there for the day and use the internet in the afternoon as I only flew out at night, which was nice.

Disliked: It was very very very difficult to find. The buses are not a reliable form of transport, but thats the method of transport they suggest you use unless you feel like lugging your suitcases over a 1km in the heat. The hostel doesn't have a sign out the front indicating where it is, and locals didn't know it existed. It is kind of hidden away in a residential building. Was a relief to find it!

Liked: The rooms have AC. There is a kitchen you can use, which can save you some money. Each bed has an individual locker. I'm not sure if you had to bring your own lock, but I used mine. The 4 person room was spatious enough, clean and confortable. The hostel itself is quite small, but it offers enough space to rest and chill out. Breakfast included, consisting of marmelade, not really good bread, a quite tasty pie, cereals, milk, coffee and tea. It's pretty near from Termini station. 20 minutes walk or 5 minutes by bus (although waiting for the bus to come might take a while). There are good value pizza shops right across the street.

Disliked: I did not see any TV or dvd, as advertised. They charge you for the two euro tax that you're not supposed to pay at registered hostels. I'm not sure about how legit is that, since the only accepted cash for the payment of this tax. There's only one pot to use in the kitchen, otherwise it's quite acceptable. The breakfast bread was not very fresh, and there were no eggs, ham or cheese in sight, so I'm not sure if that qualifies as a continental breakfast.

Liked: There was a 24 hour receptionist and the place had such few rooms that it was easy to meet people and felt friendly. Also, lockers were free, parking was free and Internet was free which was great!

Disliked: The AC was leaking in my room which led to there being water on the floor in my room by the end of the day. Little was done to correct this. (They only put in a bucket and it didn't solve the problem). In terms of safety, there were no keys to any of the rooms it was fine because there were so few rooms and a receptionist at all times but it is good to know.

Liked: the proximity was great, a short walk to the station that allows you to get anywhere in the city via the metro. I also liked that it had a kitchen for us to cook, most hostels in Europe don't seem to have this option.

Disliked: The kitchen was a bit small for the number of people staying, we didn't have too much trouble it is fine if you are patient. The bathrooms could use a hand towel and a bath mat because the floor gets too wet and you have nothing to wipe it with.
