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!

Disliked: nothing.

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).

Liked: Very nice newly renovated place. Felt like in a decent hotel. Convenient to reach all tourist attraction points by walk and also bus stops are located near the property. The quality of towels was amazing :)

Disliked: Croissant and a cup of coffee was too light of a breakfast. No air conditioning and because of the open windows traffic noise from the street,

Liked: Excellent double ensuite! very helpful staff

Disliked: The room could be cleaner but it was acceptable. The staff was very helpful but it made us listen to a lot of advises about Rome when we just arrived (late and tired) which was a bit stressful, I guess it would be better to provide those (very useful) explanations at another time.

Liked: It was very close to Termini station, therefore incredibly easy to get pretty much anywhere in the city.

Good stuff!

Liked: They give you a free bottle of wine when you arrive and you get your own key to the front door so you never have to worry about getting locked out or anything. And the internet spot was nice and you could print. They also gave you a colorful map of everything unlike other hostels where you got a black and white photocopy.

Disliked: I did not like fact that I had to share one bathroom with 9-12 people. Getting into the bathroom was a pain in the morning especially when you have to pee. >.< It also smelled a little weird and the shower did not drain very well.

Liked: The sleeping area itself is actually in a kind of apartment--it felt very authentic. The beds were made up every day, which was great, and Mabri (who, I guess, runs the place) was a huge help. Plus you get a free bottle of wine when you check in!

Disliked: Finding it was a little difficult--check in is in a laundromat/internet access point, and feels a little sketchy. There aren't any common areas to speak of, so it might not be a great place if you're looking to meet other travelers.
