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.

Liked: It was really really clean and modern, really good wifi.

Disliked: Its up a really creep flight of stairs and the power went out, so it was pitch black. They said it was because of a thunderstorm but its thundered every day I've been in Rome and it was really scary with no lights.

Liked: Nice rooms and great common space to meet other fellow travelers. Close to the train station too.

Disliked: There are no sign for it, and its in a building with other businesses. Took us a bit to find it, but when we did, the place was great!

Liked: This is a solid hostel, near the train station, with very friendly staff. Very clean.

Disliked: The hostel is spread out over two separate floors of an apartment building, which isn't ideal. And it is definitely still a work in progress --- the kitchen and dining space downstairs weren't yet up and running during my stay.Possibly because of this, the hostel isn't all that social. If you're traveling alone, it isn't necessarily the greatest place to meet new people. Lastly, there are much nicer neighborhoods to stay in, away from the train station. It would have been nice to stay closer to the city center.

Liked: Clean, good location. Small hostel, yet still a lively atmosphere. Met a couple of other people traveling alone there, and the other people staying there with friends were open as well.

Disliked: Can't think of anything I didn't like.
