"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: Everything! This is practically a hotel at hostel prices. The staff were really friendly and reccomended all the things to see in Rome. They also gave us info on buses and trains so you could get around the city. The room was lovely and big and cleaned everyday. The location was great only a few minutes from the termini station on foot one way and a few minutes to Piazza Republica in the other direction, here you could get on the metro or the bus and get around the whole city. I would definately reccomend this place it was brilliant!

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: The breakfast is provided by the cafe just opposite the hostel. Lovely pastries and coffee. Many locals have their breakfast there as well.The place is slightly further away from Termini but there's a nearer metro station.

Disliked: Wifi doesn't have a signal if you're in a room away from the main block.

Liked: Clean and safe, relatively easy to find and a good distance from the main tourist areas. Staff were fairly helpful but could be a bit abrubt.

Disliked: Breakfast is nice but served in a cafe across the road so not a good way to meet other guests - probably not one for solo travellers. Felt a lot more formal, more like a hotel than a hostel.

Liked: Limpieza y seriedad. No es de las más baratas, pero recibes un buen trato del personal, te ayudan en todo lo que pueden y no hay duda de la limpieza.

Disliked: El precio y además el edificio es viejo ( el ascensor intimida un poco) ( aunque eso sí, bien cuidado).

Liked: people were friendly (they gave me directions for all kinds of stupid stuff i asked), the price was right and it was really close to the train station

Disliked: the hotel was next to a warehouse and around 5 am the merchandise came and there were some un-godly screeching sounds... it wasn't the hotel's fault though

Liked: Clean. Lockers in the room. In-suite bathroom.

Disliked: Not a friendly atmosphere, not much of a group space. My room wasn't even connected to the main part of the hostel. There weren't enough keys for everyone in my room. No small lights, if some one was sleeping there was only the big flourescent light to turn on.

Liked: Rooms, beds and toilet clean. Fairly central location. Extremely secure (almost a prison).

Disliked: Our room was located right next door to a porn cinema (literally on the opposite side of a thin wall), which meant the moaning started at 10 in the morning and continued through the day. You could hear it very clearly.. No free internet. I was really afraid, the top bunk would give way when I turned around in the bed, and the noise made from me turning woke up me mate. I weigh around 80 kg...

Liked: Could walk to the main sights, or close to main bus route.

Disliked: No key, either for the room or the hostel and no lockers. So there was no way of keeping your things secure. The breakfast was in the cafe over the road, and this was a croissant and a hot drink (no other options). No laundry or luggage room. Some of the staff didn't seem to know what was going on, and whilst we were there, there were a few middle aged men wandering around and sitting on the balcony late at night. They were't guests, so I assume they were friends of the staff/owner.

Liked: Very near Roma Termini train station so a quick walk with your bags. Pretty safe neighborhood with a couple restaurants catering to hotel customers around the area. Rooms were clean and cool since it's on the first floor. Front desk people were helpful and friendly. Cheap rates for internet service. $1 a day w/ your own comp or $1/hr for their comp. Met some really cool people in our room! Big lockers provided for bags.

Disliked: Hard to find, especially at night because it's not well marked. Breakfast in the morning was a joke, just a glass of jucie/coffee and a sweet croissant. Small to non-existent common area where the computers are.

Liked: The room was very good. Great private bathroom, very clean. Wonderful location, not too far from all the important places in Rome.

Disliked: The reception closed during the night and the room was very hot. There was only one fan. Price is not the great, but the service was good.
