Liked: The hostel is in a very cozy location, 500 mt. away from Policlinico metro station. The rooms are well equipped and clean. The common spaces are well arranged and decorated with frames and good-looking furniture, which give a nice appeal to the general environment. Recommended also from a price-quality point of view.

Disliked: The only downside could be that most of the staff can't speak Italian properly, but if you can speak a decent English you will do just fine.

Liked: The stay is really lovely, great comfortable set up and fantastic showers and wifi amenities!

Disliked: The breakfast is definitely for the sweet tooth! Expect cake and biscuits rather than fruit and savoury breads. It is also a bit of a walk from the old city (20 mins), but if the walk is too much there's a rapid buses running so it's it much of a problem at all.

Liked: What I liked about this property was how safe it felt and the friendliness of the staff. And the WORKING wifi!!

Disliked: The lobby was right by my room and I felt it should have had a curfew because of the closeness to the rooms. Can get noisy!

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.
