Liked: Wow, wow, wow. Who needs a bar at this hostel when you've got Fabio and Domenico and the fact that it's Rome and there are always going to be people coming to visit? Sure the kitchen and dorm rooms are on the small side but this was one place I felt like I was at someone's apartment rather than another big hostel. Absolutely wonderful place even if the wide use of pink is a bit amusing. Come here for the experience - but don't expect too much sleep!

Disliked: David left no negative feedback.

Liked: Breakfast was really good and the owners were so helpful and friendly!

Disliked: Only one working shower for 20 or so people. There are only two bathrooms to service everyone and it meant that we had to get up really early or wait in a long queues for the shower or toilet.

Liked: There was free wifi and internet access, as well as free printing (the last being a very unusual amenity). The free breakfast was also fairly extensive and lasted until the exceedingly late hour of 1pm.

Disliked: The common space was just a small room containing a cramped kitchen and dining area with a few chairs, which, even though there were only about 15 people in the whole hostel, felt almost claustraphobic.

Liked: This hostel is amazing. It is run by two brothers. I only had the chance to meet Fabio because his brother was on vacation, and he was very friendly and helpful. You really felt at home. Yes, you are essentially staying in this guys converted apartment, but he has thought of everything. The rooms are clean and decorated nicely. The breakfast was very nice -- a wide mix of pastries, fruit, cereal, bread, juice. Even with just a small operation, there are lockers, wifi, computers and the ability to purchase anything you may have forgotten. I would highly recommend it.

Disliked: There were only two bathrooms, so there was a short wait in the morning, but it was minor.

Liked: The benefits of this hostel are numerous. Let's start with the hosts, Fabio and Domenico who are friendly, outgoing and go out of there way to make your stay pleasant. As an added bonus, they live at the hostel so are always available and give you a safe and secure feeling. They greet you with sparkling wine, will usually offer you at least one free dinner, and will make calls or provide additional travel help for you. Second, included services. This hostel provides free use of a desktop computer, with FREE printing. Also a laptop is available and FREE WIFI which works throughout the hostel. Third, breakfast. There is cake, pastries, croissants, bread (and toaster), and ASSORTMENT of fresh fruit. There are at least two kinds of fruit juice, coffee and a bunch of teas. There are also EGGS and butter and the use of the stove and refrigerator. Not too mention the free pizza or pasta nights sometimes offered! Fourth, atmosphere. Lots of evenings, other travelers and some of the brother's Italian friends gather in the kitchen for a meal, some wine and conversation. The hostel is easy going and friendly. Fifth, cleanliness. The bathrooms are cleaned everyday. The floors are mopped. The hand towels are changed. This is not a five star hotel, but cleanliness is greatly appreciated in a hostel environment. Sixth, location. You are out of the fray of Termini, but can walk to the historic center or take an easy bus ride. Minutes to metro stop. I really can't imagine a better place for the money.

Disliked: There is nothing to dislike. For added luxury, new shower heads and toilet seats would be awesome :)

Liked: This is one of the best hostel's I've stayed in. I can't imagine you can get a much better location in Rome for this price - near to the colosseum and the metro and surrounded by great local bars and cafe's. It had all the facilities you can expect and was safe and secure but what made it great was the Brother's friendliness and willingness to help. What great hosts.

Liked: The hostel is relatively small and feels like your staying at a friends apartment. But this is what makes it so great. You can get to know everyone in the hostel because nobody is hidden away in a room for their entire stay. And because its like a friend's apartment, you feel like you're at a second home. Fabio and Domenico are fantastic hosts, and will help you with anything.

Disliked: Only minor, but the place was a bit messy and untidy, mainly in the kitchen. Also, more bathrooms and computers would make things better.

Liked: Everything. The decor had a unique and fun flair. The internet terminal worked really well and the free wi-fi was great. The secure locker was the right size for all of my valuables. The owner was really friendly and helpful, right after arrived he'd highlighted a map showing us where to walk and how to get home by bus. It was within walking distance of the major attractions and close to the metro. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers were very nice. The free breakfast was above expectations and he had pasta available for purchase which came in handy the night we got back late and needed something to eat. By far, the best experience I've ever had at a hostel.

Disliked: Nothing, it was amazing!
