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!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: 24 hrs of wifi for €1 was nice. Close to Termini. Weird place overall- just has an oddvibe. Wifi only works in the "common room" (small couch in a tiny room). Breakfast was minimal: cheap pastry & oj or coffee. Cheap place to stay but horrible for meeting people.

Liked: The staff were very friendly and helpful and they gave you lockers with locks in the room, so you can use them for free. Easy walking distance to the main train station which connects to the metro and to the airport train. Great little restaurants nearby. Would highly recommend.

Disliked: Free internet would be nice, but it's cheap if you have your own laptop - 1 euro for 24 hours. The guy on reception overnight was really loud on the phone which made it hard to sleep. But these are all petty things. It was a great place.

Liked: The Blonde at reception was the best, she made Rome for me, the location was in walking distance for everything, i mean everything! happy hard working, smiling staff to help you at any time! what more do you need, oh and a traditional Italian breakfast to start the day......great!

Disliked: The rooms i stayed in were to close to the lobby as the staff are quite loud to each other and on the phones all day, most of the time you are out sight seeing but if you wanted a rest in the day thats very unlikely to happen....

Liked: Only that was close to the train/bus station.

Disliked: Walls in the hostel are made from paper, during the night you hear all other people/noises/tv form other rooms , double bed was two connected bed (not very comfortable), room with a window wthout light/sun on the first floor so not even safty to open it (anyone could enter from the patio). Photos of the room and the reality was sooo different, for this price double room was not so good.

Liked: The breakfast. And the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: We paid an extra €5 to use the aircon. The remote was not left for us to be able to change the temperature or to turn it off. During the night out room got so cold i felt like we were in the middle of winter.
