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!

31 July 2013

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.

Liked: I liked that it was in a clean, quiet part of town. It's near the university and somewhat removed from the tourist-saturated city center. The businesses near the hostel are there to serve the local residents rather than to make money from tourists. While not centrally located, the hostel is very easy to get to (one, short bus ride from the Termini station or a short walk to a metro stop).

Disliked: It was a little hard at first to find the hostel. The directions for getting to the hostel were correct, but the hostel is so discretely marked on the outside of the building that we thought we had missed our bus stop and had to ask a passerby for help. A very discrete sign above the door just says R. City Hostel.

Liked: it was comfortable and pleasant and only a few meters from the bus stop with 24hr reception, free computer and breakfast are always a bonus and good accsess to supermarkets, only short buss from the main station

Disliked: the location was easy to get to and from but far from the main part of rome ... in the way of needing to get two busses at least to get to the main attractions of rome. not really many places to have a quiet drink and something to eat with been a big student area, needed to go out and find somewhere to eat if i didnt want take out.
