"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: It's not far from Termini Station. The lockers are big enough for all your luggage.

Disliked: The room in which I stayed was just in front of the reception so it was quite noisy and there was no key for the door so it was unlocked all the time.

Liked: The location is awesome, close to Termini, which is a main transportation hub literally in the City Center. The staff is helpful.

Disliked: Some of the lockers for your personal property lacked locks, so we had to share the lockers.

Liked: Very nice, clean hostel. Helpful staff; when I wanted to extend my stay for an additional night beyond my booking they found me a bed, without a markup or any fuss at all. Really nice attitude from the staff. Close to the train station too.

Disliked: The area is a bit dead, or pricey. Given that rome metrorail closes down at just 9pm, that can make for some boring evenings or long late night trudges back on foot.

Liked: From the hostel you can walk to the main train station Termini in about 10 minutes. The room I stayed in (6 beds - women only) was not huge, but large enough for everyone to put their stuff away. The beds were comfortable and every second day we got new sheets. The lockers where inside the bedroom and big enough to fit a big suitcase in them. The locks where provided for. The bathroom was all right; the shower was relatively small, but the water was hot. The internet cafe is a small room with a fridge, a microwave and a coffe machine. The cost is very cheap: 1€ for one hour on their computers or 1€ for 24 hours on your own computer. The female staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Disliked: the rooms are on the first floor of that building and there is no elevator. So you have to carry your luggage up the first fleet of steps (so you should be good on foot). The one male staff member I got to know was not so friendly. He even came into our room without knocking once...to show other girls the room (but I guess that's not the normal procedure there :-) In the bathroom there were no towls or soap (but I guess that's normal for a hostel).
