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: 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.

Disliked: Just a bit of a smell of urine from the bathroom but this was not major

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.

Liked: really great workers, rooms are big with non-bunk beds, nice small kitchen/lounge area makes it easy to converse with other travelers. Discount on laundry services and a free bottle of wine at check-in

Disliked: check out time is 10am, which is early, but most hostels in Rome are the same.

Liked: Friendly reception on arrival, clean rooms with single beds, the free bottle of wine, come and go as you wish with your own set of three keys. Felt more like a hotel than a hostel.

Disliked: No hot water, breakfast coupon only gets you a cup of coffee and a bun, very basic facilities including an extremely bare kitchen. Bring your own kettle if you want a cup of tea, forget about cooking.

20 November 2011 Kurt Adrian would recommend this property

Liked: When we arrived, we couldn't find the hostel because it was a laundry and internet shop that was on the lobby. good thing someone told us that the hostel was there. It looked dubious at first, but the staff was very friendly (and funny!). What i liked about the staff is that he made an itinerary for us good for the time we had in Rome. we followed it, we were able to go to all the landmarks. the rooms were so nice and very clean. twas a bad first impression but i was so wrong.

Disliked: nothing really. location, service, and room: all great. it was just scary at first, seeing the "lobby". but once you see the awards inside, there's a feeling of safety. haha. had a really great stay at funny palace!

Liked: Free internet, close to the station

Disliked: It seemed a bit dodgy - checking in at a Laundry, cash only... Didnt feel completely safe the whole time I was there but nothing bad happened and all worked out. Not sure Id stay there if I was on my own though..
