"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: was very well run, and the helpfulness of information present in the reception area was amazing and gave me plenty to do while in Rome

Disliked: there was not a "true" common area so people did not gather and meeting people here was not as easy or relaxed, I guess what im trying to say is that there was no opportunity or atmosphere like in the other hostels that i went to to meet other people.there was a small computer room but barely enough room for say 5 people to enjoy comfortably, granted it was a smaller establishment.

Liked: Nothing. Near the train station, but there are a lot of hostels / hotels near Termini.

Disliked: The room was in another building and the owner had to drive us there (its near Termini as well). The breakfast is served in the "coffee shop" in front of the building (coffee and croissant). Everything is old. There is NO internet in that building. The bathrooms smell really bad and it was really hard to take a shower with no courtain and no hanger for the shower.

Liked: More than a Hostel is a hotel,with familiar atmosphere,but its really nice.Its very close to the train station,in a safe area.Staff is friendly,they change in shifts all the time.If you like meeting new people is not the best place,but if you wanna rest in a clean,quite,safe hostel after being weeks in dirty and tiny hostels,is the best option! The breakfast is not a big deal,a coffee and croisant,but its still ok. Of course is not luxurious but its really nice!
