Liked: Great location 5 minute walk from central station. Within walking distance to all major sights in Rome. If you don't want to walk, easy-to-use bus system at central station.

Liked: the description on the site is pretty accurate. Do find the right entrance on terminin though! Termini has several, find the large entrance, where there's a police post outside on the corner, and youre good!Hostel wasn't as funny as I thought it would be: seperate building to check in, do your laundry and use (free) internet. Next to it is the large appartment building, which looks quite classic. Once you enter your appartment, there a small seating area, kitchen, one bathroom (incl. one toilet) and three dorm-rooms. The rooms consists out of either 2 or 4 beds. Pretty clean, I liked the location, service (they gave good advice about the vatican: go in the afternoon, there's no que then) Recommend it, but maybe not in summertime..

Disliked: NO airconditioning. They do have fans, but it was still really warm in there!

Liked: We had a double private ensuite and it was a good, clean room. Staff was very friendly and very helpful.

Disliked: Its a bit confusing...I wonder if this is a "confederation" of pensions or something. Room was around the block from reception in a pension by some other name. Breakfast arranged elsewhere at a cafe on another block (1 pastry and coffee). Really the double room price was too much for what you received. Maybe the dorms are a better value but I have no idea where they would be located. You don't meet people because it seems you are spread out in many places. Staff is nice and it all works but its weird.

Liked: It really was clean, although the bathrooms had some mildew/mold and were really small. The bedrooms were just long rooms with beds and lockers but they were sturdy and comfortable. WiFi was excellent.

Disliked: The kitchen was really messy and there's no stove or anything. The owners were really creepy and a bit rude. There was also this one guy who wouldn't knock before entering the girl's only dorm. The air conditioning was broken and even when they said it was fixed, it didn't give much cold air or anything. Also the windows to the rooms barely opened so there was nearly no ventilation.
