"The location is perfect, to see everything in Rome you have to get comfortable with the metro and the Termini station is the only one on both lines. The owner Emy is very helpful and recommended good places to eat…"

Liked: Staff were great, rooms and bathrooms were cleaned every day.Really good Wifi internet connection, and a shared computer available for anyone to use.Great location, with a bunch of nice restaurants nearby (<3 mins walk) with English translations on their menus.

Disliked: I didn't personally encounter it (thank god), but the guy at reception disappeared a few times and new guests (with reservations) couldn't check in, or even get into the building. Pretty sure my bed had bed bugs - got a few bites on my ankles today that I'm sure I didn't have yesterday... There's no air conditioning, and the fans in the rooms don't really do anything (because the air outside is hotter than inside).

Liked: Cool themed rooms and very helpful English-speaking staff on hand at all times. Internet WiFi is a nice bonus and is well worth the price for such a good location in Rome.

Disliked: Breakfast is included, but is simply one coffee and one choice of small pastry from the cafe round the corner. Not very substantial, but is nice.

Liked: Air con :) and close to termini station

Disliked: The hotel owner made us move rooms after two of three nights a few hundred metres down the street to paint his room, we were not informed and the new room was not as good as the original in the actual hotel we booked.

Liked: Set in a brilliant location, literally a five minute walk to the main Termani train station, When in Rome Accomodation was more like a hotel than a hostel! Our room was cleaned everyday which included, but was not limited to, our beds being made and fresh towels. Emi, our host, was of great assistance and even bought us a bottle of wine which we all shared on the balcony of our room. Highly reccomend - five star accomodation!

Disliked: Absoutley nothing! Perfect!

Liked: The room was as described and very clean. It was neatly decorated and the AC worked excellent. The area around Tremeni Station is very sketchy. Be careful of pickpockets and people who wish to financially take advantage of you. I would recommend this hostel as a clean place to stay on your trip to Rome.

mai linh tompkins

02 June 2010 mai linh would recommend this property

Liked: This place is just a couple blocks from Roma Termini station and the Metro, so you can get anywhere quickly. A great English-speaking tourist agency called Enjoy Rome is just down the street. Staff at When in Rome are so welcoming and sweet. (Thanks, Emy for being my unofficial tour guide so I didn't have to roam the streets alone at night.)Overall, it was a spectacular place for the money. The room was great. Facilities are spotless. The only quirks are the 5 keys you have to keepa nd the scary elevator to the 4th and 5th floors. It smells like smoke in the hallways and seems like a sketchy entrance, but once you're up there, the place is actually quite nice. Don't let the outside scare you. Thanks for a wonderful stay! The free pastry and drink for breakfast was great, too!

Disliked: mai linh left no negative feedback.
