“Clean, close to train station, but very noisy.”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

Stayed for 6 nights in Sept 2012. Close to Termini station.Friendly staff, helpful with pointing out the must see sights in Rome. Rooms are nice and bright. However keep your windows closed because it is extremely noisy at night, all night. Garbage and recycling is collected on the street every night after 11pm. Don't forget to bring your ear plugs.The windows are great but if you want fresh air you will need the earplugs. Had to share 1 bathroom with 4 other rooms with up to 10 people on our floor, not practical and made for long waiting times. Stayed for 6 nights and were expected to use the same bed sheets and towels for the duration of our stay. Breakfast was the same everyday, and very poor. Security is great, staff at the desk 24 hours a day and you are buzzed in and out of the building.

Stayed September 2012, travelled as a couple

I visited Rome last weekend and I stayed at Mosaic Hostel with two friends of mine. We rented 3 beds in a 4-bed mixed dorm, which was very clean and modern.
The staff is really friendly, they help you whatever problems you have and also give some hints about the sights and places you shouldn t miss while in Rome. The breakfast is also fine for some days.
The location is great, 5 minutes walk from Termini station - where you have all the public transport connections - , but you can easily reach the center on foot as well, it takes app, 20-30 minutes!
I would defenitely stay in this Hostel again next time! :)

Located about 10-12 minute walk from Roma Termini. Friendly staff, helpful with maps, local restaurants, and they also lead their own walking tour of Roma if you're interested. Breakfast minimal. Many others to hang with in the common area, if that is your thing. Rooms were basic and clean. Sound proof windows to block out the city noise. Bathrooms cleaned everyday, no problems there.

Room Tip: We had a window on the main drag, but with sound proof windows. Noise wasn't an issue.

Very clean and secure hostel to stay in. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Great location, near lots of the most expensive hotels in rome.The only draw back was the breakfast was a bit basic needed extras of yogurts or better selection of breads.

Great location, about a 10 min walk from the main Termini train station. Being a solo traveller i found this hostel a bit boring, no communal areas, no social atmosphere at all. Having to share 1 bathroom for a whole floor of rooms was not good in the morning.
I wouldn't recommend this hostel unless you were a family or group of people who liked a low key quiet stay.

This was the nicest hostel I stayed at in Italy. It's a short walk from the main station, 10 minutes if you are a slow walker. The staff were very friendly and recommended some good eateries and attractions.

I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was spacious - we had a seperate room with alcove and adjoinging ensuite which was great for separating the sound. Buzzers for each level and the front door, keys to rooms and lockers made the hostel quite secure.

Breakfast was also included - good if you are on a budget. The atmosphere was a bit lacking but in part due to the size of the common area and alcohol being more expensive in Italy. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're in Rome, this hostel was consistently good.
