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.

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.
