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!

Liked: La Controra was a great base for our city break in Rome, it was welcoming and clean and tidy. As a 30+ couple we didn't feel to old as we had private room and was it was quiet. If your looking for a party place this probably wouldn't suit. Breakfast was dead on, cereal, toast, tea coffee or juice, could do with updating toasters as very easy to burn your bread. Wifi worked good too

Disliked: Could do with table and chairs in room

Liked: The room was roomy and comfortable, and the staff was cordial and easy to work with

Liked: It was very clean, much cleaner than most hostels I've stayed in. But what really sets La Controra apart from pretty much anywhere else I've stayed in for either work or pleasure is the staff — they went out of their way to help one out. A case in point is how they helped the Israeli guy who'd decided to turn up in Rome at the last minute without booking any accommodation by allowing him to sit down in the common room and look for accommodation.
