Liked: Very clean. I was put in a two person room whe I had signed up for a multi-person dorm room. That was very nice of the front desk attendant. They were very helpful also.

Disliked: No free wi- fi or breakfast but the room praise was low so you had that trade off.

Liked: Excellent location; very close to main train station Lockers located in each room and in the hostel Very clean

Disliked: No complaints but if you are looking to party, this might not be the place for you. It is attached to an upscale hotel and the hostel guests I encountered were very low-key.

Liked: Good value for money and clean rooms. Really good location for station.

Liked: Good spacious rooms, shared bathrooms are also spacious and clean. Liked the rooftop terrace!

Disliked: We had to wait about 10-15 mins to be checked in, the two receptionists asked us to wait in another room so they could check in another group first...... There is a red light outside your door which turns on if you are in the room and you have the key in the electricity hole. It is not on if you are not in your room-- but our bags are still in the room doesn't make you feel safe, perfect opportunity for thieves....

Liked: It is very close to a Metro Stop and a 7 minute walk from Roma Termini. Also there was a fridge, common room and roof terrace available. Overall very clean and comfortable stay.

Disliked: Far from any tourist sites, but not a huge deal because of location of metro station (1 Euro per ride).

Liked: Roof top garden is really nicexand a great place to hang out in the evening.

Disliked: No AC and it is at the top of the building, so it is very hot at night. Some rooms overlook the street (mine) which can be noisy up to about midnight and then again starting around 7. There is only one lift and it is fairly slow, so many times you need to walk the stairs to the top.

Liked: The location was good, easy to find and an easy walk or metro ride to the major sights. The reception staff were really helpful, they upgraded us from a dorm to a twin room for no extra cost (I think we looked hot and exhausted!) and helped us with any enquiry we had. Very clean, beds were made for us. A very cheap option for Rome, would recommend.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Across the street, there is a bar/restaurant that has a 1.50 euro breakfast (deal with the hostel) of a cappuccino and a croissant. It was delicious!! There were regular beds, not bunk beds. The room had a sink in it. The shower had good pressure and a shelf in it (why don't more places have a shelf in the shower??).

Disliked: A little bit hard to find when you first get there because you don't know which door to enter, and they have to buzz you in. There are no lockers in the room, but there is a locker area on the second floor. It was really loud at night because of the bar across the street.
