01 August 2010 Customer would recommend this property

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: + Good Location (All sights reachable on foot, Metro stop 10min walking)+ Unbeatable Price: 18EUR/night 5 bed dorm in Rome+ Little Breakfast at the bar on the other side of the street (Croissant + Cappucino)

Disliked: - 5 bed dorm has a adult movie cinema on the backside of the wall that supplies you with annoying sound atmosphere from 10am to 11pm. - Staff seems to be a bit unorganized (Not enough keys for rooms, etc.)

Liked: Was in quite a convenient location, rooms were reasonably comfortable and had a fan.

Disliked: You have to pay for internet (1 euro for 24 hours), and the connection was bad in my room, even though I was less than 10 meters from the reception. Showers weren't all that good, but it was passable.

Liked: Large room that was very clean and modern, more like a hotel than a hostel. The location was great - close to train station and also walking distance to great locations. Try the little pizza place around the corner from the main entrance - is open late if you are hungry after a night out and do great pizza and desserts!

Disliked: Flynn left no negative feedback.
