Liked: Close to main station, clean, secure, and one staff member was helpful.

Disliked: Other staff member was not social or friendly, never even mentioned his name. Was disappointed that there was no real common room. Breakfast was meager and strict (coffee or juice and pastry).

Liked: staff was very helpful and planned day by day things to see and do, the facilities were cleaned daily and included a small kitchen and common room, close to train station termini to be able to get to and from the airport as well as anywhere in the city on bus or metro, breakfast allowed you to get coffee and pastry at local restaurant which was good

Disliked: the shower did not get hot water in the mornings and the location is not extremely close to important historic sites

Liked: It was right in the centre of town close to everything. It was really clean in side nice dark wood floors. Neat picturesmon the walls. It felt really hommie. You got a free breakfast with it and also free Internet in the room and if you did not have a computer you could use there Internet cafe. If you stay several night you get free wine. It was a really good price and a super nice place. I would strongly recomend staying there if you staying in Rome.

Disliked: The only thing thT was a problem was the bathroom it was a bit of a mad dash to getting in there because there was only one for 8 people and everyone wanted it at the same time. Also there was no hook for the shower head. Nothing big still a great place to stay

Liked: Great location from the Roma Termini which gives you access to the whole of Rome and also the Termini has places to eat and shop making it an ideal location. The hostel also has free wifi which was really handy and also a laundromat at the front of the building.

Liked: Location and cleanliness of the room.

Disliked: Inability to switch on the lights early in the morning since it appears that the electrical current is automatically switched off at some point. And I can assure you that it's pretty dark around 5 am in the morning.

Liked: Good location near train station and discount on laundry and internet computers. Clean and comfortable beds. Free coffee and brioche at the cafe 1 block away.

Disliked: Not allowed to cook in the kitchen and only 2 spoons for utensils. They had a stove, but not allowed to cook. Only one bathroom for 3 rooms so line for bathroom in the mornings. No heat or hot water on my last night and they were indifferent to my complaint and said I must not have turned the shower knob correctly and waited long enough for the hot water and seemed to not care at all. He was always hurried and dismissive, but bad service is typical for Italy. Bad directions and advice on local sights and amenities so following his advice was worse than no advice at all.
