Liked: Cheap and cheerful.

Disliked: Communal space was very small and cramped. A laundry room, where you could do your own washing would be a great addition.

Liked: Really nice place, the staff were all really friendly and tried to accommodate me for an extra night although it wasn't possible in the end. The effort they made and their friendliness in showing you where to go on a free map and giving helpful tips was great. For a busy hostel they do well keeping the showers clean and there's plenty of hot water and at such a low price you can't really beat it. It's easy to make friends while there too as the atmosphere with an open kitchen and sofas is really relaxed. Would recommend.

Disliked: It's great value for the price if your a backpacker wanting a hostel but I can imagine as the 6 bed dorms are quite small that it would be really noisy if people came back late after clubbing. But that's to be expected anywhere- get earplugs!

Liked: 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 as there's only 5 rooms and a common room. The three guys who run it in shifts are very friendly and very helpful with advice on how to get around and where's good to go eat/drink/sightseeing.

Disliked: There's a slight amount of disorganisation from the staff, friendly as they are - I and a couple of other people over the four days I was there got put into the wrong room on arrival and had to move on subsequent days. But this was always resolved fine and is a minor niggle.Also, if you're looking for a bigger hostel with more chance to meet people and a bar, this might not be the go. It's also a little bit further out from Termini station than most hostels but it's only an extra 15 minutes walking/2 metro stops.

Liked: The hostel is not in the city centre/old quarter of Rome, but if you prefer somewhere quiet and not touristic then this is your place, and so was mine! Good-value, clean room and showers, small but nice common area and kitchen, and most important is the fun, super friendly staff! One of the nicest hosts ever and they are very helpful, specially Mila and Guil! I really enjoyed my stay there! Thank you guys a lot!

Liked: Free Wi-Fi, no curfew or check-in time limit, accesibility of the staff, free breakfast, not loud

Disliked: Doors of the rooms have no lock! The lockers have no padlocks, you have to bring your own or buy one, but they don't tell you this at the website.Relatively far away from the City center. After 23.30 there is only one connection option going every hour to and from the city, unless you want to walk like half an hour from Termini station. Air conditioning was not working, the place was terribly hot. Staff was friendly, but part of it didn't speak english very well, so communication was not as easy as it should.
