YOUNG JUN LEE thinks…

"Really nice staff but If he's sleeping, you couldn't get a service. But a room was really cozy and had an individual bathroom, really nice location, just 3 min for walk from Termini terminal!!"

City break

19 July 2010

Liked: Only good for meeting other travellers.

Disliked: Where to begin...Unsafe, too close to Termini train station, WAY too hot - in mid july when it's already very hot, lack of air con meant it was very uncomfortable being in the hostel and trying to sleep etc. No real facilities on offer. Shower and bathroom also terrible. Not even value for money - too expensive for what you get.

Liked: it is in a very good location.

Disliked: the staff were very unprofessional, i think one man was drunk on the job. when i was trying to find the hostel i asked a man if he knew where it was, he said he had no idea and started walking away. terns out he was the man who was werking there that night and it was the two customers with him that told me who he was and were to go.

04 July 2010

Liked: The staff was funny. They were running around with water-pistols.

Disliked: It didn't feel serious. There wasn't any locks to the room. The staff didn't seem to know how to do when we were going to check in. The asked ut next morning if we wanted a key. The hostel was inside an apartment five stairs up in a normal house with a handwritten sign on the door that said 'Hostel two ducks' and no sign at all down at the street.

Liked: It is close to termini.

Disliked: There is no one at the desk most of the time and you have to call to be let inside the building. The door to the room where the hostel is, however, remains unlocked all night, as do the bedrooms. There is no where to change clothing and the area is quite sketchy at night.

Backpacking / gap year

02 July 2010

Liked: Nothing, except for the roomies who were quite nice people. Considered clean, it all depends on the people you stay with.

Disliked: We were located to another apartment few blocks away. 1. No hot shower! Worst still... it's freezing cold! 2. No internet access (wifi access only at the "apartment" at Via Calatafimi, and you've to go all the way with your laptop to access wifi in the small tiny kitchen, with very limited power source.) 3. Walking tours?? Sorry I wasn't told any. 4. Air conditioning? Apparently not working! 5. Two Ducks Bar mentioned is totally invisible or non-existence.

Customer review

06 June 2010

Liked: The place was very unwelcoming, the guy at reception was never there and there were constantly people sitting around waiting for him to get back. The cleaner is just mean about everyone getting out by 1030. The walls are paper thin and 'Fast and the furious' was on most nights with the tv up full blast. It's a lot to put up with but it's not far from central Rome. And something bit the hell out of me in bed.
