"A really great stay. A very warm welcome from the lovely receptionist who spoke English very well and was more than helpful with advising us on what the see and where to go. It was one of our best hostels yet."

Liked: the hostel was clean

Disliked: the shower was not working but they fixed it at the end of the day. people at the breakfast cafe were very unfriendly. they probably just have a deal with this cafe to give their guests a miserable piece of croissant and a cup of coffee and a whole lot of rude faces!

Liked: - they cleaned the room every morning. - they gave out free maps of rome and told you where the main places of visit are, also there were several travel books about italy that you could read. - free breakfast: coffee and a croissant - they spoke english - cheapest hostel in rome during the holiday season - close to metro stations - was able to hold our luggage after check out - fast internet although you have to pay 1euro an hour to use their computer or 1euro for 24h if you have your own - 24hour reception

Disliked: - they should really upgrade the bathroom; i mean it wasn't bad but although i knew they cleaned it everyday, it was so old it didn't make a difference -

Liked: This hostel is a perfect location to all the main attractions like the Colosseum, Vatican museum, Trevi fountain, and many more. The metro station is within walking distance, but you can also walk around the city. In addition, there was an excellent Italian restaurant 2 minutes away from the hostel. The service and food was amazing. I would definitely rebook this hostel again because it was very reasonable and cozy.

Disliked: There was nothing about the property that I disliked.

Liked: The good part was that there is a toilet and bathroom in the room itself and the staff was helpful enough to give a map and explain what and where to see

Disliked: The worst thing about it was that the receptionist was too loud. You could hear her talking (on the phone or else) probably from the other street. Late at night she didn't care that people are exhausted and are trying to sleep. There was no lock on the door of the room and to have breakfast you have to go elsewhere.
