Teresa Lee thinks…

"I loved the location and the fact that they have fans in the room (because there's no A/C). The beds are reasonably comfortable, and I'm really glad there weren't any rickety bunk beds."

Disliked: The only thing I would say is don't go to the pizza place that they give a discount on...it's crappy tourist pizza.

They also allowed us to print our boarding passes for free, and had a welcoming wine bottle. Laundry is free if you stay longer than 3 days which was great

Liked: The staff was really, really friendly and we only paid for a room without a shower and a toilet but they gave us one with bathroom and didn`t charge us for it. the rooms were more like a proper hotel than a hostel with air conditioning, a tv and it was very clean..so, thumbs up..both!!

29 July 2011 FERNANDO would recommend this property

Liked: The bathroom and the room size were excellent.

Disliked: The hostel doesn´t have a common area for the guests, nor a kitchen. The rooms don´t have a/c, which sometimes becomes imperative due to the heat in Rome in the summer. The breakfast is poor and inappropriate for people from other cultures, who don´t like brioches in the morning.

Liked: This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in!!! The staff are amazing and so friendly, the services are absolutely brilliant - everything is cheap for guests, bed is made every day, incredibly clean and new facilities, clothes washing, internet, information, kitchen, numerous bathrooms...all at your fingertips! If you come to Rome and do not stay in Funny Palace, you've done yourself a disservice!
