Liked: Close to Termini station.

Disliked: The image displayed in the website for the double room is completely different from the real room. Real room was very small. Air conditioning system was not in operation. I think they purposely make them not work to save the electricity bill. We had to open the windows to get some fresh air. But, opening the windows make the place very noisy. It was difficult to sleep.There were four lights in the room and only two of them were working. So, it was not enough light in the room. I am pretty sure they did it to save the electricity bill.Bathroom had a very unpleasant smell which ruins the whole place. I had to cover my nose when going to the bathroom.

Liked: The room was nice enough, but over priced.

Disliked: The staff told me I was sent an email to say there had been a mistake with my booking. I have checked, I never received an email. They blamed hostel bookers and said it happened often.

Liked: Close to the train station.

Disliked: Very unfriendly staff, bordering rude. No luggage storage (although advertised). We had two rooms, a double and a twin. The twin was correct, the double was EXTREMELY and ridiculously small (almost not even enough space to leave the suitcase), with an equally small bathroom (shower almost on top of WC).
