Liked: Very clean and comfortable, almost like a hotel. The have cleaning stuff everyday, something that you don't see much in hostels.

Disliked: No real atmosphere, specially if you're travelling be yourself; the common area was pretty small. f you feel like partying or meeting people this is not your hostel. They had no activities for travellers, like in other hostels that I've stayed.

Liked: Location is rather good. Within walking distance to most of the attractions. 5-10 mins walk to metro station. Rooms are clean. Friendly staff able to speak fluent English. There are some good restaurants and Gelateria nearby. Must try 'Gelateria Come il Latte' if ur staying here! Its the best gelato I've had in Rome.

Disliked: No wifi in my room.

Liked: I stayed in a 3 bed mixed dorm and thought this hostel was fantastic. Spacious rooms, very clean (rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and common area).

Disliked: The only thing I didn't like was the pillows - they are horrible! Lumpy and flat. I gave feedback to the lady at reception and she said that is the first time anyone has commented negatively on them. Come on peeps, if you think they're dodgy also, let them know!
