Liked: All the staff were friendly and answered any questions you had. They also gave good tips on how to avoid lines at various tourist attractions.

Disliked: Breakfast was 2 croissants, 1 glass of juice and a coffee. It was good but I needed to get something of more substance afterwards daily.

Liked: I found a truly warming and welcoming atmosphere in this hostel. Best suggestions for the cool place to see and where to eat the tastefull "Tiramisù" and ice cream. The garden it's charming and the breakfast tasted much more better in that atmosphere. They had two computers always on-line that are free for the guest (and wifi too, I guess) and kitchen for a basic use. I passed two days in a very pleasant and relaxed way.

Disliked: I found the bed not so comfortable ( sprung bed base).

Liked: The whole staff is realy excellent! The location is clean, honestly described online, the area is very secure and quitely. All of those who are interested to stay to Hostel Lodi have to know that they will surely be surprised of the very good behavior of the staff members. Special thanks to Ali, a very good receptionist, who is absolutely dedicated to guests and a perfect guide of Rome.

Disliked: Maybe they have to descibe in a better and detailed style the way to get from Termini Station to hostel.

Liked: The staff are by far the best part about Hotel Lodi! They are very friendly and so accomodating. They have tons of information available to you and are ready to help with anything you need. They even made my husband some chamomile tea when he wasn't feeling well. By far the friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever seen. I also really enjoyed how safe and clean the hotel was. They have 24/7 reception so I never felt worried about my things or felt unsafe. It's located in a quiet, upstanding neighborhood so I never felt afraid walking back to the hotel. The breakfast was also a nice feature. It was simple and nothing fancy but it was convenient for needing to eat something on the go.

Disliked: It was a bit far of a walk from the hotel to the nearest Metro station that would take you into the city. Once you made it to the metro you were only 3-4 stops away from the major attractions, but the walk to/from the metro can be a bit daunting after a long day of walking around. Also, the wifi was sometimes hard to connect to, but they did have a computer room with desktops and wired Internet access so you could always use that. The good things definitely outweigh the bad for this hotel!

Liked: Excellent place to stay. The hotel (it's actually hotel not a hostel) is sort of family run place with the lovely back yard garden the have a cup of tea or just to relax. The staff has all the info (in clumps of rome) on where to go and how to get there. You even get a cup of real Italien cappuccino as a welcome surprise. I thought it was quite a walk from the metro station but it's just around 10 minutes walk. Spar store is right behind the corner if you need anything. As is the local pizzeria.

Liked: That they love what they do, they do it very well, they would go extra mile, and in the end visitor feels great.

Disliked: Directions from what side to take bus could be more specific, and it was not obvious how to use a locker, when lock wasn't present on box, didn't bother to ask :-) I also dislike particular age limit, set for dorms, as it makes you think about your age, if you are closer to the red line - which is uncomforting. Reasons can be somewhat understandible, but are boundaries really badly needed? Are more aged people so eager to occupy dorms? Would love to return and socialize, if just a bit.
