Liked: The hostel was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms were well-maintained. The staff were friendly and the hostel was easy to find.

Disliked: Although it is well-connected to the metro system, it is far to walk to/from anywhere in Rome (i.e. 5km from the Vatican, 4km from the Coliseum, etc.).

Liked: Security, Breakfast, AC, WiFi.

Disliked: Rates somewhat high for hostel, PLUS 2 euro daily tax. Kitchen good butvery small. No common area, just one 2 person sofa and 3 very small kitchentables. If busy, gets crowded. One or two loud and annoying guests canbe 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!
