Robert Cervenka thinks…

"The staff was very helpful, provided us info about getting there around midnight. Also location is very accessible, although not very safe during the night :) No bunk-beds was a plus too."

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.
