"For the price it's a good hostel. Everything get's cleaned every day, you have a fridge outside of the room (but no kitchen!) and lockers are also outside of the room. The location is good, close to the central station…"

Liked: They treat you more like you're staying in a hotel than a hostel. The room was HUGE for 4 beds. Other places they would squeeze in 12.

Disliked: A little hike to the center of Rome, but worth it.

Liked: Decent location. Some staff was wonderful, some acted like you were a bother.

Disliked: It's the top floor of a hotel, so there is no concern from staff about hostel patrons. You sort of feel like the weirdos upstairs... Also, have to bring own lock, pay for wifi and towels. No group plans or anything. More like a Radom cot in a building than a youth hostel.

Liked: the hotel jas a very good location app. 2-3 minutes from Termini station and like 1 minute from subway...also I really liked the staff, they were very friendly and helpful ... as for accommodation, rooms are small, but nicely decorated ...

Disliked: I did not like the level of cleanliness. While the rooms were clean with towels changes every 2 days, the bathrooms were really disgusting, especially toilettes and the paper was constantly missing. This is due to the fact that there are not enough bathrooms per each floor.

Liked: The hostel was very nice but not it was not really a hostel but rather a hotel. So I wouldn't really recommend it for backpackers, like myself.

Disliked: The hotel offers no walking tours or any sort of way to meet other people staying at the hostel (pub crawls, etc.). It was a good place to stay, but not a very fun environment.
