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: 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!

City break

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.

Liked: It was a very nice, clean hostel. The bathroom and our room was spotless and you get free internet, breakfast, and a discount card for a delicious pizza place. You have to be quiet starting at 10pm though and if you are loud, you will get in trouble. But it is very safe and secure. Some of the guys that work there are very nice and accommodating. Overall, the cleanliness of the hostel makes up for the quiet hours.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

25 May 2010 Helen would recommend this property

Liked: It was fairly quiet, really good if u just need sleep. They said they were goig to send up acomplimentary wine bottle on arrival but I never got it which was a bit dissapointing. But the dorms were big, with single beds not bunks. No big lockers, only a small safe, and normal simple hostel breakfast, but free. Over all pretty good for a quiet nights sleep. No wifi, but Internet available. They do your washing/drying for €5.

Disliked: Helen left no negative feedback.

Liked: This place was amazing. The guy that runs it was outstanding. The first thing he does is sit you down and gives you a whole breakdown on the city and where everything is and how to get to all the places. The price was prefect!! I would go back and pay more!! SO CLOSE TO THE MAIN TERMINAL! The condition and cleanliness of the room was great!! Way better then expected! ! LOVED it & will go back if I visit Rome again.
