Liked: It's so easy to talk to everyone and make friends! We were family within minutes of sitting down for breakfast :) Having no curfew was great too, considering walking through Rome at 2am with a bunch of new found friends is the best way to see it :D Valeria is an amazing and kind person, she helped us with whatever we needed! She even let me reorganise my booking when I decided to go somewhere else for a couple of days! The location is perfect too! Next time I'm staying in Rome, it will definitely be here! Thanks so much!

Liked: Valeria is lovely and very helpful. The place is cleaned every day. Access at anytime with your own keys. Wifi only in common area but then you meet other people there so I think it helps. Breakfast is : tea coffee croissants toast with jam yogurt cereal. Always cold water and cups available. Two bathrooms available and showers are good . Beds comfy and linen towers changed daily. The place is not hard to find just look for the number and the entrance is a thick glass door with diamond patterned bars.I will come back to this hostel when next in Rome!

Liked: Its a small hostel but has an amazing atmosphere. The owner didn't mind us staying up and making noise until very late. Really great friendly owners who were very helpful. Great location.

Disliked: Not the most high end hostel but it really didn't matter because the atmosphere was great. Could have used a better fan in the room, though!

Liked: The place is pretty clean. The location is very good. The host is super nice and helpful. She provided me with free breakfast even on the day I just arrived and a bed to sleep before my check-in time.

Disliked: Just one thing: no printer available, but you can print everything in the internet cafe downstairs for 0.25 euro a page. Otherwise it is perfect.

Liked: The owner is extremely friendly and approachable. Such a lovely character. Very willing to help with anything she can during your stay (whether it be about Rome or about the hostel in general). She is very easy going and really interacts with her guests. The location is brilliant. Less than 10 minutes walk from Rome Termini and 2 minutes walk to Santa Maria Maggiore (which is a fantastic basilica). About 20 minutes to walk to the Colosseum. The place is really clean, especially the two shared bathrooms. Breakfast is very simple but value for money. WiFi is fast and works in the dining room/common room.

Disliked: No negative comments, but just a warning that there is no lift! But this is tyical for old European cities.

Liked: Valeria is lovely, she points out everywhere to you on a map as soon as you get there, and will always help with any questions you have! Free breakfast is also really nice, and the location of the hostel is great- very near the train station, and walking distance to all the main attractions, although you might want to get the metro to the Vatican

Liked: The host was a lovely lady. She is more than willing to show us the way around Italy, give us advises, prepare breakfast and get our requests all fulfilled. The location is great. All attractions are of walkable distance. I am sure to introduce people to stay here.

Disliked: Maybe the only downside is that it has no lift. But its only 2/3 stories and we (4 girls) were totally fine with it. All in all, I love this hostel and lovely host.
