Liked: The hostel feels warm and homely. Ramona explained the facilities, shown the sites to visit on the map and where the supermarket is. Very lovely lady to chat with too. The weather become rather chilly from the 2nd night and immediately they added extra blanket. The place is always kept clean and bed is made every day with fresh towels.

Liked: It is very well located, at walking distance from almost everything there is to visit. The staff is really friendly and helpfull. Staying there felt like being at home, it's very comfortable and very clean. A great place to stay!

Disliked: The only downside is that, since it's not a hostel but a B&B, it is very small so there won't be many people to meet.

Liked: Great location next door to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, its about 10 min walk from Colosseum and max 20 mins walk to furthest attraction and everything else in between. 10 min walk from Termini and 5 min walk to local metro stop, for trips to Vatican use the metro. Very clean room with private bathroom (if requested), lovely and helpful staff with breakfast ready round 7.30 am. all in all highly recommended and will choose this b&b again for future visits, thanks to the staff for great time...

Disliked: No Dislikes..

Liked: The rooms was big and bathrooms were very clean

Disliked: The property is very hard to find. There is no sign on the door and it looks like its just the basement of someones house. Only 2 bathrooms per 12people makes it pretty difficult especially when someone is showering means you cant use the toilet.

Liked: Very friendly staff, fantastic location. Only a 10-15 min walk to the Colosseum! Amazing!

Disliked: Only stayed two nights and had to move rooms (and buildings) each night which was a bit annoying. Very friendly staff though that came and helped us move our stuff which was appreciated.

Liked: Staff member (only one girl for my 3 nights, Ramona) very friendly and helpful with maps, directions and troubleshooting issues with computer. Also kitchen and bathrooms were nice and clean, plenty of hot water, supplied towels free and linen. Good security with large lockable cupboard. Staff didnt mind you eating in your room if kitchen busy.

Disliked: Directions could have been clearer on how to get there; maybe its just a Rome thing, not always easy to find street signs. Also no common room, and kitchen too small to eat in if more than 3 wanted to eat at same time.

Liked: The owners (Carlo and Maria) were very friendly and helpful. For instance, they helped us to make a reservation for a camping in Tuscany (tel. call, hours of the train, etc...). The location is exquisite: in the hart of the city, in a vivid quarter, with a view on the Santa maria maggiore (if you put out your head out of the window :-) ) Another great plus is that you are allowed to use their computer.

Disliked: Breakfast is rather sober.

Liked: Bed made daily with breakfast. close to Termini metro. restaurants near by.

Disliked: No safe in rooms, tho they had good locks on doors. There was no way to have them not make your bed every morning. (tho i didnt ask them not to) Apart from that it was a very good stay. Oh and it was a little noisy at night coz we had to leave the window open with the fan. No air con.

Liked: The only complaint would be that we had some troubles with the computer just because it is older. Other than that everything was perfect. Staff is really friendly and the location is walking distance from nearly everything. It was really wonderful. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling who wants a relaxed and great experience of Rome.

Disliked: I loved everything about it.
