Liked: It is very clean, and the rooms are extremely spacious for hostel rooms. It is quiet and tranquil. The kitchen was always very nice and clean.

Disliked: If you are looking for a very lively hostel where you can make friends and meet a lot of other people, this isn't the hostel for you (but if you want something quiet it is good). The free breakfast is very basic. The hostel is a little tricky to find (there are no signs outside the door indicating the hostel's location), but once you have found it the location is not bad.

Liked: I had a great experience staying here! The hostel was very clean, the rooms were spacious and the staff were very welcoming. The common room was great and made it easy to meet other travellers and make friends :) There are lockers in your room which is really handy. Location is great - it's within walking distance to all the main attractions (trevi fountain etc) it's also an easy walk from termini station. I have been recommending this place to all my friends who are planning to travel to Rome.

Disliked: Breakfast is pretty basic but you cant really complain!

Liked: Myself and my friend had a great stay here. It was clean and I liked the retro decor too. The staff were helpful and friendly and the overall atmosphere was warm. I also loved the old fashioned lift and the shutters we had in our room. Top marks and value for money in the centre of Rome. A must for the budget minded traveller.

Liked: First and most importantly, excellent service by the lovely reception girls.. they are warm, very helpful and accomodating. People, the right people make a world of difference to one's short stay in a foreign place. Also, the hostel is a very charming place, with character. Huge timber doors, rickety metal grille elevator, black iron spiral staircase, cosy beanbags and more...what's not to love? :)

Liked: I really enjoyed my 4 nights in La Controra. The staff was really nice and ready to help for any request. There was a well equiped kitchen that was cleaned after each meal. The room was very quiet, suite comfortable. The bathroom was freshly reniewed and everything was perfectly cleaned. Sheets and lock for the wardrobe were very appreciated. To finish, the building has a beautiful old paris style elevator :)

Disliked: The breakfast was a bit light and the place not very easy to find. To avoid any inconvenience, I would advise to print a close map of the hostel's location before to arrive :) Don't forget your towel as they would charge you 2€ for it.
