“Reasonable & decent place to stay”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Mosaic for 2 days and 2 nights. The place is pretty decent for the prices they charge.
Rooms are very clean. Ours had 2 bunk beds and cupboards for clothes. Beds are good, clean and soft enough.
Your stay includes the breakfast as well which is served near the reception. Breakfast includes milk, coffee, juice, toast, croissant, cornflakes etc.
Mosaic offers free wi-fi plus there are 2 desktops just in case you want to use. The guy and lady at reception are very helpful and would answer all your queries and guide you nicely. The guy during night time is pretty chilled out too.
This place is pretty near to Roma termini, walking distance you can say.

We had really great stay here at Mosaic. If we ever are coming back to Rome, we will definitely stay here.

Cheers,
Anant

The hostel is clean and the people at the reception were all helpful. The location is also excellent.
The major drawback was the noise during the night. Unless they change their policy, you will NOT be able to get any sleep.
We were at the 5th floor and for some reason not all the guests had the key of the main door.
We were in the room next to the main door, the blue room, and during the night we woke up several times because people were buzzing the main door to enter in the corridor leading to their rooms.
To get that key one has to pay 5 Euros deposit, and so there are people within a group that believed one key for the group would have been enough. IT WAS NOT!!

The Hostel should make that key compulsory, so nobody has to buzz the main door for that.

Cannot fault the experience, went with my 6th form at the age of 17. A fair breakfast is available every morning. This consists of; bread rolls, cereals, cakes, biscuits, Orange Juice and Tea (you take your pick.) Most of the beds would not be great for a larger individual (look at the pictures.) The Hostel is near a lot of the attractions, not a long walk and their are 2 Metro stations nearby (Termini and Castro Pretorio) which can take you to a variety of attractions. Also, WiFi is available but from my experience it is better on some floors than others.

Room Tip: Their are around 7 floors, so if you don't like stairs or lifts go for the bottom levels.

The hostel has everything you need. I lost my diary and Andrea looked for it and sent it all the way to Australia for me! A big thanks for that. :D

The only negative was that the wifi was intermittent. Otherwise, clean and close to the centre of town. Walking distance to all the big things.

Truly in the essens of a trip i only expect a decent bed and a clean room. Room was clean (not very clean), but the beds where for children or more like toys bed. Doble deckers bed that can only support people of around 65kg and not more tall thab 1;70 mtd. Plz avoid if you want a good rest and especially if you are bigger than a hobbit./ las camas marineras son para chichos. No hay forma q soporte el peso de una persona de mas de 65 kg y mas altas q 1,70!

Never needed a guide after SUCH a comprehensive guidance from the lady at the reception who made sure we knew the best times to visit the best places in the least rush and have fun!

The breakfast's sorta unlimited, good point, The bedrooms are real comfy with a study table, eating table et al. Great for groups. Even got an extra bed added on request.

Very convenient location! My BF and I woke up and walked around the corner to Termini and caught the big red tour bus which took us all over Rome. Right when we got there I was a little irritated we couldn't check in, but they had a cozy area for us to sit, watch movies, use free Wifi and use their very clean facilities. Seemed like a lot of younger groups were there on holiday. Our room was on the third floor (yes they have an elevator) and you had to have a key just to get down the hall (very secure). We shared a bathroom, but everything was super clean and kept in good shape. Our room was BIG! We had plenty of storage in the wardrobe and even a refrigerator. Next to a lot of great places to eat and shop in the farmer's markets. 24/7 staff was there to assist you with anything you needed. I really enjoyed everything about this place, but it was slightly pricy considering their free breakfast consisted of assorted cereal and juice.

Room Tip: Near Termini, Quiet rooms, walking neighborhood near university
