Liked: The perfect hostel in terms of : Clean, safe, good location, helpfull staff, etc.

Disliked: Only two things that were not so good. - you have to pay an additional 2 euro per person per night which is rome tourist city tax I believe this is true (amsterdam where I lived has something similar) but it wasn't communicated that it was not included in the price wich i didn't found proper... - also, there is for the entire hostel (4 rooms for 3 persons so 12 visitors) only one bathroom (toilet and schower), which is okay if they are seperated, but now you couldn't go to the toilet when someone was using the shower :s. The rest of the hostel was nice, clean, friendly, we got good advice, etc. Thus besides the two downers it was the perfect place to stay.

The property's response is...

01 January 2014 rachel would recommend this property

Liked: It was really well located a short walk from the main station, near a tube station and walking distance to all the main attractions. The hostel was very clean throughout. We had a four bed dorm that was spacious and clean with its own bathroom (really nice hot showers). The main office and bigger dorms were two floors up so kept private but still accessible. we enjoyed free internet and watched a movie in the evening. All up a very good hostel with a well deserved reputation.

Disliked: Honestly if I was really looking for something I would say the pillows. They were rather lumpy and thin and they could do with getting some new ones. Also a larger sign at the door of the hostel as we did walk past it the first time. Basically if you are coming from termini and hit the back of the american embassy (big gated building) you have gone too far. It's really easy once you know where it is.

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.
