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: 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. The staff are friendly and very helpful, they helped us plan everyday and gave us excellent advice on transport and whathaveyou. the check-in wine was a very nice touch, and so was the free breakfast. 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.

Liked: Matt was super helpful and mapped out the best places to see/routes to take and ways to beat the line ups! He also pointed out the best places to eat and he was bang on! The food was delicious!! Very close to the Termini and we were upgraded to a private room! Recommend this to anyone and will stay there again when I return!

Disliked: Nothing really! Tip: If it is busy...the wait for the bathroom in the morning can be long! Try to beat the line by getting up earlier! Other than that...everything was great!

Liked: There were several services included free of charge not mentioned on the website (free linens/towels, free internet, free breakfast, complimentary bottle of wine). Also, the staff was extremely helpful and gave us a lot of good advice for touring the city. The restaurants that have discount deals with Funny Palace really aren't good but they'll fill you up and for very cheap.

Disliked: The safes in the rooms did not work, and there are no lockers to keep larger items in.

Liked: The host, Mabri, was amazing. He was fantastic at not just checking in weary travellers but ensuring they had everything organised for their stay. Even telling you which bus/train to catch to which sites, times for travel, discount at local food outlets, free internet and the wonderful complementary bottle of wine. Value for money is outstanding. Location to the station (Roma Termini) is fantastic.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike.

Liked: Amazing host Mabri - took his time to plan my 3-day itenary and gave a complimentary bottle of wine! Very spacious and comfortable rooms with lockers for personal items, and beds made everyday. Near to Termini station - 5mins walk.

Disliked: Having wireless internet connection would have been better than having to use the few computers at the internet cafe. Nothing to dislike.
