Liked: The bedroom and bathroom was clean and the room is kinda cute. The employees helped us and were really kind. And it is really well located.

Disliked: No elevator to the first floor (our bags were heavy, if you are backpacking no problem then), they didnt accepted credit cards, the water in the shower went cold in the middle of the second bath (only on the first day, the second the water was hot during both baths), they dont see to whom they are opening the doors, so anyone can enter the building with no difficulties.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The hotel was on the first floor and not served by a lift so travelers with heavy luggage should reconsider using this hotel. The male staff talked loudly at night while we are trying to sleep. The tap is stiff and cause noise when turned on and off affecting others sleeping. In front of my room was a table with TV making movement in and out of the room inconvenient.

Liked: The receptionist was very helpful. We weren't disturbed at all.

Disliked: Yes, the hostel wasn't too bad and it's within 10mins walk from Termini; but paying over €70 per night is a bit too high for this hostel.

Liked: The lady working at the desk was extremely helpful and guided our stay throughout Rome. She went definitely above what we would have expected from the staff. The room was clean and we had a locker with our own lock to keep our suitcases in.

Disliked: The bathroom was in the room and you had to share it with 6 people. Which meant arranging showers in the morning was a bit difficult. And in the morning it was loud because people might be getting ready early when you were trying to sleep.
