Liked: It is clean and I felt safe in the hostel considering the location which is just beside the Termini train station. It is not very advisable to hang around the train station at night. The hostel also has fridge, microwave and cutleries for guests who would like to eat in.

Disliked: the hostel doesn't have a proper signage so it is hard to find it.

Liked: The rooms were clean and tidy, and the lockers had locks on them!

Disliked: We were a little worried that the hostel was so close to the train station, but it actually works out well for taking trains and metros easily. The neighbors were a bit noisy, but other than that, it was very nice.

Liked: spotless, great location, just outside the train station, just what i wanted and expected. no wild parties there, perfect place to rest after long day of sightseeing. lady who runs this place is not always there. i arrived a little bit earlier than expected, but i just called the number from the reservation and she was there in less than 5 minutes. would go back there definitely.

Disliked: booked 4 beds dorm ensuite but slept in 5 beds dorm. but to be honest it wast kind of upgrade, 'cause 5 bed dorm doesn't have bunk beds, and the room itself was quite big. also, it was a bit hot in the night so the window had to stay opened, and the outide traffic was a little bit disturbing. but then again the location is great so you just have to deal with it :)

Liked: It was really clean, and secure once inside it. Privacy granted. It's near the station in the asia zone of Rome, so maybe it's not so recommended in the night to walk alone, but it seems safe. You can also use internet for free with the pc of the owner.

Disliked: No breakfast included (I expected that with 25 +2 euros per night they will give me at least some coffee). A roommate of mine was too noisy and she would turn on the lights every few minutes, gosh o.O But that's not the hostel's fault! NO shampoos and sapon inside

Liked: Everything was very clean, the rooms were cleaned every day. The Hostel is located on the other Side of Termini-Train Station, from where you can start your sightseeing tours via bus or metro. The rooms where simple, but the furniture was nice and seemed to be new.

Disliked: unfortunately there wasn't a kitchen or some kind of a community room, where you could eat or just meet the other travellers.

Liked: very clean. separate beds, not bunk beds. close to station. free internet access. could store bags on last day. quite secure - 2 doors to unlock before reaching room. large storage lockers in rooms with keys provided.

Disliked: no breakfast. no real commom area so not so good for those hoping to meet other travellers. owner speaks limited english but was helpful. no real kitchen area, but did say this on website. location could be a bit scary for young girl alone at night

Liked: While the location was not central to all the sites in Rome, it was good because it was right across the street from Termini station, which is the main hub of bus, train, Metro in Rome, so no matter where you were, you could easily hop on a bus to take you right home, which was awesome when you were lost. I walked to all the main sites on this side of the Tiber with no problem. A couple of streets is a grocery store, although I didn't know that until the last day. There isn't really any good food stuff in the immediate area. The hostel its self was very clean and new. There is a fridge but nothing else in Kitchen, so you can't really cook anything. I didn't see any fun night life in the area, which was a bummer.

Disliked: The lady running it running, spoke no English, so she was very unhelpful with any questions. It would have been nice to know there was a grocery store 3 minutes away or where to buy a long distance bus ticket, but she couldn't help me with either.

Liked: okay. this isn't really a hostel. it's more like a bunch of rooms with beds. the beds are comfy and the bathrooms are spacious and clean. it feels more like you're renting an apartment, which is so cool.

Disliked: it was SO DIFFICULT to find because there are no clear signs. also, the woman who owns it speaks little/no english which made everything just a bit more challenging. also, cash only.

Liked: Coconuts was very clean- the owner cleans everyday while everyone is out. It was so clean I forgot to wear shoes in the shower twice. She was very accommodating- she wrote down our time wrong but still let us check in late at night with no problems. When someone stuck a gluey nail in the lock to the hostel and the elevator, she let us in again, at night, and got the locks fixed the next day. She had new keys made for everyone promptly. The area is convenient because you can take the A and B metros from Termini, right across the street, as well as buses to the airport or a day trip or even a train.

Disliked: The area around Termini is CREEPY. Watch your bags. Lots of catcalling and unsavory guys, mostly immigrants, not Italians. The hostel itself is kind of hard to locate, but the number is clear even though the name isn't. Check the callbox for a small label that says Coconuts...there's no other sign. The building is dirty and also a little creepy, but we only saw other people not from the hostel once or twice. Hostel is on the 7th floor, which we didn't know when we were arriving.

Liked: Very clean. Hot water at all times. Storage space so I could unpack. Great location: close to transport with some restaurants and cafes nearby. Within walking distance of a few sights. If you come by train from Fiumicino, DON'T take the first exit from the station on to Via Giolitti, as I did - it's dark and I got lost. Walk the long way to the front of the station and come out of the main exit - then the directions to the hostel will make sense!

Disliked: No hooks in bathroom for clothes / towels. Didn't sleep well due to hard pillows and noisy traffic outside (bring earplugs!!). Very small area for socializing / hanging out. No tourist info except a large free map. Lady in charge was pleasant but kind of vague and didn't speak very fluent English. A cupboard in my room was used for storing linen so she had to come in to get it while people were sleeping - and she made no attempt to be quiet! Also, I booked to stay in a 4-bed room - and found 5 people sleeping there. Not a big deal perhaps but the service should be exactly as described!

Liked: It was clean and in a good location. Free internet (a laptop was available to use).

Disliked: There was not really any space at all other than your bed to eat, read or just chill out. The main lobby/lounge area is one small room with 2 chairs in it. If you wanted to eat a meal and the chairs were occupied you had to sit on your bed to eat (which is difficult if you are on the top bunk). If you were staying there for a shorter amount of time I am sure it would be fine but if you are thinking about staying for a longer period of time you may want to keep that in mind.
