Liked: This place is cheap and has everything you need. It isn't fancy, but when I am traveling I don't hang out or spend much time in the hostel. It is also near the train station which is convenient.

Disliked: In the morning the worker didn't speak much English, but they have at least three other employees that do fluently. Paying an extra euro for wifi is a surprise but no biggie. One disappointment was that there was no common room, but hostels are arguably for sleeping not hanging out. Additionally, the room doors do not lock, only the lockers. This was different, but all went well. The hostel is cheap and good for a nights sleep. I would recommend it for a budget traveler.

Liked: Good location. Friendly staff. Good price.

Disliked: Wi-fi is not free (although the 1 euro/24 hr charge is not bad). Wi-fi is only available in the main building, which sucks if your room is not in the main building. No real kitchen, but there is a fridge and microwave.

05 March 2012 ali imran would recommend this property

Liked: 1-It is located very close to the termini. 2-The lady at the reception speaks very fluent English and she was very helpful. 3- I mistakenly reserved a double room for a wrong date, and she gave me an upgrade of 4 bed private within the same cost, and I truly appreciate it. 4- The room was very clean with hot water facilities. In short I would like to say that I just paid 20 euros per bed, and within this price I got much more than my expectations. For a stay of couple of days, it was the best spot and I would also recomend it for couples as well.

Disliked: my room was exposed to the street so it was noisy even in the night.....but i would rather say that this is very usual and common in almost every hostel.....

Liked: Excellent value for your money! Our room was perfect for 2 students exploring Rome for the weekend. Everything was clean and the location was very convenient!

Disliked: My only problem was that you had to pay for the internet, and it was terrible at that. But I knew that from other comments already, so it wasn't a big deal. Still a great place to stay.

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.
