Liked: Very clean tidy and well located. Hostel staff where always friendly and helpful and room was brilliant. Free extras like internet and breakfast plus 10% off dinner at a local resturant was very good and the staff helped us sort out some issues with transport. The booking in briefing about what we could do in the area and map was also very useful.

Liked: I liked the room and good location from train station and seeing the sights.

Disliked: Finding it... there was no sign out front... none, and its lobby is a sketchy looking internet cafe and laundrymat. Nothing was special about this place. I think for how crazy high the rating was, I was expecting something worth that rating.

Liked: Location excellent just down some pretty safe streets from Termini. The guys at the Laundry/Internet are cool, friendly and very helpful. I was given a towel, a bottle of wine, free internet and breakfast vouchers to a local cafe that made excellent coffee. They sat me down gave me a map of Rome and detailed a possible 3 day plan with buses/metro etc. Met cool other travelers from diff parts of the globe, good laugh.

Disliked: Shared bathroom a bit of a bummer, really only one for the floor... but it seemed to work out ok. No lockers for packs etc, although there were a couple of little safes for valuables <-- first in first served.
