Liked: This is the only hostel I ever stayed out that really deserves the title of a hotel. Im a college student whose been studying abroad in Italy for 4 months now. In the process, Ive stayed in maybe 15 hostels throughout europe (a majority being in Italy). This has been, far and away, the best one. Firstly, for this particular trip Im riding solo, but its a very social hostel. I made a ton of friends and found awesome people to explore the city with. The rooms are legit, the bathrooms are really nice, the kitchen is nice, the living room is cozy with computers (3 euro for an hour) but theres free wireless if you have your own computer. The staff is really nice and friendly. They not only helped me find a train home, but partied with me at night. The location is sick, you can walk pretty much anywhere, and if you dont feel like walking, the metro is close by and cheap. I cant say enough about this hostel, I came here intending to stay for a night and ended up here for 4.

Disliked: Breakfast is eh, very basic, but free nonetheless.

Liked: It's clean and there are lockers in the rooms. people are nice and beds are confortable.It's near the city center.

Disliked: It is a little bit difficult to find the correct street because it almost does not appear in the sign. It was more expensive than other hostels, and I had been in another as good as this one for a cheaper price.

Liked: Very nice and clean facilities. It's almost new. Location was also great. Very friendly staff and super cute ;)

Disliked: it's just a little difficult to find the hostel at first since it is located in a multistory building. They should have a signage in front of the building ( If the local authorities allow it )

Liked: absolutely everything. it is a pretty new hostel so everything was super nice. From the people that worked there to the area, i had such a great, great time! beds were clean, super nice to have down duvets and loved that there were a lot of really big lockers in the rooms. Loved also that there was a divider between the room and the bathroom area, so that if you had to wake up early or come in late, you can do so without disturbing others. Common area with the big bean bag chairs were awesome and great area to meet people. cleanliness of the entire place made it so enjoyable and just like home. The pictures do not do the place justice as it was so much more. really felt like I was staying at a friends condo or something. kitchen was also super great as it was very very clean and made it easy to want to cook instead of eating out at expensive Roma restaurants every day. Continental breakfast was pretty standard... If given a choice, would come back here in heartbeat. Thanks and keep up the great place guys!!!p.s. place was a bit difficult to find, but if you googlemap it before going, you wont have a problem
