Liked: the facility is really really good, it is the best hostel that I've ever lived in Roma.

Disliked: all the facilities are quite good, except the bathroom, which is together with the toilette, which has no lock. So when you are taking a shower, somebody may enter the toilette and see you through the semi-transparent door~~

Liked: All very very clean, exactly what it is on the picz. Beds comfortable. Never waited for the shower. Close to the metro station, cca 5 mins by foot (easy to reach both Termini and major attractions) and easy to find (those who say it's hard to find haven't looked on the map at all before going there). Staff very polite. Calm part of the city. Would definitely recommend.

Liked: Quartos muito amplos, com excelente locker. Bom café da manhã, com pães, e croissants recheados! Máquinas com bebidas e comidas baratas!

Disliked: O banheiro coletivo não é muito bom para tomar banho. Os travesseiros e colchões são um pouco finos. Não há mapas da cidade de graça no albergue.

Liked: In walkable distance from Termini (if you're used to walking). The facilities were excellent. The rooms were big and the lockers were big enough for all your bags and the bathroom was very big and extremely clean.

Disliked: There was some disco beneath the building until 1 am which was very loud.

Liked: Breakfast was the best I have ever had. Staff was really helpful. It's a bit far from center but if you take tram it takes only 10 minutes. They have a safe luggage room. I'd definitely stay here again.

Disliked: I had no problem but there were only 2bathrooms for men and 2 for women on the whole floor.

Liked: It was a very clean and generally enjoyable atmosphere. It was less of a youth hostel than it was a family hostel. There were families with kids, as well as youth & elder folks. There isn't much space to "hang out" and meet people. The free breakfast is helpful to meet people.

Disliked: The personnel were friendly, but not particularly helpful. They didn't offer any extra services or advice in regards to things to do or places to eat. When asked about bike rentals, they googled it for me (which is something I couldn't have done myself) instead of knowing which was the better company to go with. I wish they had a kitchen, but instead had a cheap restaurant you could eat at (no cooking for yourself). :-(

Liked: Excellent atmosphere, very comfortable, extremely well maintained - a real treat for those used to typical hostel stays! Most of the staff was super friendly, aside from one receptionist. Breakfast is also great, even included delicious fresh coffee that you order on the spot...capppucino anyone?!

Disliked: The 3-5am curfew was a bit of a nuisance, but not such a big deal really when you consider all the positives. The location is a bit out of the way, but still a short walk to the metro which will get you to central Rome in a matter of minutes.

Liked: Very well run. Staff had time to help. It's true what others said about there being nowehre to dress in the showers, but that's less important than all the other good things about this place.

Disliked: Included breakfast was ok, but I would have liked some cereal or hot or cooked food after a couple of days of the usual bread, croissant.. Unfortunately the wifi crashed (for over 24 hours) whilst booking my next hostel leaving me in a very difficult situation, as I found wifi very hard to access in Rome generally.

Liked: This place was awesome, after having some bad luck in rome we booked this only for one night before we left for a cruise. The staff was extremely friendly, the rooms were very nice and clean. Bathroom was good too. Would have loved to come back here! And for Rome the price of 21 euros was awesome! we didnt even pay tourist taxes! the directions are very clear and the neighbourhood is sweet with little shops, cafes and laundry right around the corner. Would def. recommend

Disliked: nothing

Liked: Very clean and it looks more like a hotel than a hostel. Rooms are clean and there are personal lockers for individual guests. Reception kept the keys and this prevents me from misplacing me during my travel in rome. Breakfast was fantastic and definitely value for money

Disliked: A bit off the main attractions of Rome and there wasn't any powerpoints oh the second level of the bed.

Liked: The Roma Scout Center looks new and clean. Although I got confused a bit in my first day in Rome, it is easy to catch the Metro and travel around Rome. You should check the location on Google map and print it out to prevent getting lost on small streets from Bologna Metro to Roma Scout Center. The instruction is not as detailed as it should be :(

Disliked: The location is not in the center. But the neighborhood is really nice. You should try pizzas at a small take-away pizzeria near the Metro. The atmosphere is like a normal urban area
