For all guest bookings with the period of stay from 1st January 2011 onwards, a local tax of 3,- Euro per person per day must be paid. This is an additional charge and is not included in the room rate. You have to pay it directly in the hostel in cash only.

Liked: This is the classiest hostel I have ever stayed it. It feels like a nice hotel, with marble walls and paintings everywhere. A cleaner even comes through and makes the beds every day. Also, a great location less than 10 minutes walk from the major train station.

Disliked: On the top floor it got very, very hot. Also, you have to pay for the internet which is ridiculously slow, even just for simple web browsing.

Liked: The place was clean and the bedrooms/bathrooms were nice.

Disliked: They charge 3.50 euro for a very small towel. The free internet doesn't work at all, apparently the paid one is better, but they shouldn't advertise free internet if it doesn't work. We had to go on the roof and steal another hotel's wifi. Also the rooms were ridiculously hot and didn't have good air circulation.

Liked: Excellent location, clean rooms, staff was helpful.

Disliked: The free internet was as good as useless it was so slow. Otherwise you had to pay €2 per device per day for Wifi. Not cool. The door could only be shut properly by pulling it hard and making a lot of noise. It makes for a very loud potty break in the night.

Liked: Good price for Rome.Close to the Central Station.Friendly staff.

Disliked: The Hostel is not at the same adress as the Hotel where you arrive and do the Check-In. You have to walk another 5 minutes to a small street in the same area in order to get to the dorms. That's a bit confusing and if you want to leave your bags in the luggage storage, you have to walk to the reception again.Also there was not really a hostel atmosphere. It was more like a hotel but you share your room with other people.

Liked: 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 in rome.

Disliked: It's more like a hotel than a hostel. It has no kitchen but offers a breakfast buffet for 8€. You have to pay for the wifi, only in the 5th floor in the common room it's for free, but really bad.

Liked: The staff were all so friendly and helpful. gave me such a great information about traveling Rome and how to move aroud easily. even searched me which and when to take the bus to another city. Hostel was clean and well maintained. Bed was clean and warm. bathroom was spacious and clean.

Disliked: Wi-fi was only free on the common lounge on the 5th floor. The signal was weak so it was not easy to use internet on my laptop.
