I had a very brief one night stay at this hostel in mid-August. It was a tad bit tricky to find, but also located within walking distance from the Roma Tiburtina train station and the Bologna metro stop. The staff I interacted with was a bit of a mixed bag. The lady who checked me in was one of the nicest people I’ve met in Rome, but the one who replaced her later seemed very disinterested in interacting with me. The rooms were pleasant, and the AC is a very nice benefit. However, my power adapters would not work with any of the outlets in the room, but some of the outlets in the corner lounges did work with my electronics. The 4 person room I stayed in was fairly large and well lit, with large lockers that locked with a key given to you at check-in. From what I experienced, there wasn’t much of a community feel here, but I could be wrong about that. I believe there’s a restaurant on the bottom floor, but it was closed when I arrived. I think there’s also a breakfast included in the price, but I can’t speak on that either as I left before they began serving, which was at 7:30 I believe. The area in which this hostel is located seemed ok, but not great. There were some shops and restaurants around, but I never felt 100% comfortable walking around the area on my own. Perhaps that's just my suspicion of big cities kicking in, though.
Really, I can’t say much more about this place, good or bad. It served my needs well, which were just to have a place to sleep before leaving Rome the next day. But if you're looking for a place with a great community feel in the heart of Rome, you may want to look elsewhere.
