Liked: It is conveniently located on the quieter side of Roma Termini, the main train station. Getting here was thus easier. The staff was very friendly and also told us how to visit Rome in the time we had. The place is clean and well kept.

Disliked: It was an occasional police van that had its siren on right in the middle of the night, but nothing really against the property.

Liked: The owners were so nice! As soon as we arrived Mabri sat us down and worked out our entire trip. The beds were very comfortable. The hostel was very secure with 3 doors to go through and password protected lockers. Also breakfast and towels were included. We also received coupons to other restaurants in the area. The location was nice as well, since there is always a bus nearby that goes to Termini.

Disliked: The shower filled up with water a little.

Liked: Localización decente, teniendo en cuenta lo grande que es Roma. Los encargados son muy amables (te dicen rutas, no ponen problemas para que dejes las maletas el ultimo dia y te regalan una botella de vino al llegar!) El desayuno es un cafe y algo de bollería en un bar cercano.

Disliked: El baño compartido para cuatro habitaciones, aunque la verdad es que nosotros no tuvimos que esperar por él pero supongo que en temporada alta habrá problemas.

Liked: Free wifi, real safety box where I could lock my travel documents and spare credit card. Good location. Bottle of wine as a welcome present; haven't tasted it yet, can't say more. Clean. Good location. Happy with the other guests.

Disliked: Bathroom and shower in one room, and this for several rooms. One may get waiting in the morning. No common area for people to socialize.

Liked: The people at reception are nice. The location is quite good. Lots of good restaurants nearby.

Disliked: The water flow rate for the shower is really tiny - kinda chilly in the winter time. There is no lobby ...no social life...more like a B&B than a hostel.... the reception is in a laundry mat and the room is like a quarter of one floor in a small house..

Disliked: Nothing! Who cares that check in is in a laundry mat!

Liked: Very clean and really close to the railway station. Rooms are cleaned and beds are made daily. I booked a four bedded room with only 3 beds in it. They give a bottle of wine to all guests on arrival to sweaten the deal.

Disliked: The hostel does not provide a kitchen but breakfast is included and there are many good eateries outside the hostel so it was not a problem.

Disliked: - Fridge in room didn't work. - No lift - on 3rd floor with 6 flights of stairs to climb. - No view - view into back yard to be precise. - Very basic breakfast - Coffee and coissant only. Fruit juice would have been good.

27 September 2012 Elaine would recommend this property

Liked: Its weirdness and the staff is funny, suiting the name of the place very well.

Disliked: The hostel itself is like an apartment with no one tending it at the entrance, which faces a quiet street. I was followed by some Italian guy at night around 11pm, and I did not feel very safe as the main office was closed and no one could care for me at the apartment entrance.
