"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…"

Sarah King

18 June 2010 Sarah would recommend this property

Liked: It is a hostel in a hotel so its kinda odd. The hostel area was nice but very basic and not meant to be a hang out and socialize. There was no kitchen which was disapointing but we managed. It is near the Terminal station so that is nice to get around but not much else other then restraunts. If you are there to meet people and have fun go on the spanish steps pub crawl. That made the trip. If your looking for a clean bed and a coach to rest and watch a movie at the end of the night this is your place.

Liked: I really liked this hostel. The staff were friendly. It was clean. The only thing is that there is a cafe/club on the same street as the hostel and the music keeping blaring late into the night, making it difficult to sleep. But overall a good experience.

Liked: Great value for money, the room was in great shape and very clean. We got upgraded to a room with three beds and it had a sink in our room, two bathrooms right down the hall. The only bad thing was that lockers were available only with the renting of locks but we just left our luggage in our room. Location was also pretty good, only a few minutes walk from Termini station and very easy find.

Liked: Place was very clean!!! bathrooms, rooms were clean regularly. Staff were very nice and helpful, I was one one of this people who kept locking key inside the room or stuff in the bathroom, and all those problems were sorted straight away even at 1 am! everyone speak English well. I was nicely surprised with security at this hostel, compering to hostel were I stayed before. Its not a place where you can party all night but place where you can relax, recharge batteries for next day. Enjoy!

Liked: The location is the number one reason why we decided to stay at this hostel. The rooms are VERY basic, just a bed, ceiling fan, and outlets. This hostel is great for a number of reasons such as the wonderful staff, dvd rentals, affordable wi-fi access (cheaper than anywhere near by). I would definitely recommend this place to anyone heading to Rome.
