"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: close to termini station, clean, friendly.... a very good no hassles hostel for an extremely low price!

Disliked: The height of bunk beds. If u are in a lower bed, beware - there isnt even enough room to get up in bed! One must roll over sideways, drop to the floor and then stand up from there. Isnt nice at all!

Liked: Location was great, close to the main train station with a grocery store near by. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very charming and clean.

Disliked: No locks on room doors, only lockers in rooms. One of our roommates had a really unpleasant experience with one of the managers when she accidently used the wrong computer in the common room, even though she paid for computer access and it wasn't indicated that this specific computer was off limits to costumers.

Liked: The mattress was nice, the bedding was clean, and the staff was very helpful in terms of information about seeing the city.

Disliked: There was no common space for meeting other travelers, and the shower head did not stay up nor did the shower drain well. The location was a little further from the main sights than I would have wanted.

Liked: Papavero hotel is near Termini Station and a few minutes walk from the center of Rome. Staff was friendly especially the receptionist who guided us with maps and gave us info about the buses, metro and how to get everywhere in Rome.

Disliked: The room was a bit small and not very clean but.. what you get is what you pay!

Liked: It was good value for the money. The staff was very polite and friendly.

Disliked: It was decently hard to find. No signs so you had to look for the name at the buzzer for the door. There were no keys, you just buzzed and they let you in so you don't feel too safe especially since my door was the first one up the stairs, again with no key. Also it was good just for a bed and a shower - nothing else offered.
