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: Staff are very friendly and helpful. Eric sat us down as soon as we got there and explained the main sights and helped us map out an itinerary for our stay. 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!!

Disliked: Nothing..everything was fine!!

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!

Disliked: I should have stayed longer!!!

Disliked: The directions to find the place are a tad confusing, but it's in a great place, nice neighborhood, and it's very close to the train station.

Liked: The manager nwas extremely helpful. From the moment we walked in he gave us a map and sat down with us to plan what we should do and in what order so that we didn't waste any time. He gave us recommendations on where to eat like the locals and how to get around so we didn't have to wait in line at places like the colosseum. He also gave us a bottle of wine and coupons for free breakfast. He was amazing!

Liked: The room was cosy and clean. The location was very easy to get around the city and get from the Termini station. The staff helped me plan the stay in Rome, which was really helpful.

Disliked: The beds are really close to each other, so the experience may depend on with whom you share a room.

Liked: The fact that it was right near the train station was great. The staff was helpful and able to help you avoid lines and show you cool places to go. Great little pizza joint right next to it. You get to use to the computeras for free.

Disliked: Only one bathroom for a room of 5 and it's a little gross. It doesn't have a kitchen and it has no AC, which means you have to leave the window open at night and rome is a very loud city (Seriously, everyone owns a Ducati and likes to punch it from stop sign to stop sign).
