My husband and I stayed at Stay At for two nights at the end of September 2011. The location is excellent - it is only a 5-minute walk from Termini Station. (A word of caution: make sure you find the place on the map before you get to Rome, as nobody - including the Information Bureau at the airport - seems to know just where the street Tiburtina Antica is and keeps sending you to Tiburtina Station, rather than Termini).
Overall, we enjoyed our stay there. The hotel is actually a large apartment made into a small hotel. The hotel owner, Francesco, was very friendly. He helped us bring our suitcase up the stairs, gave us a map of Rome and suggested which attractions to visit. He also told us to call him if we need anything after he leaves (we never took him up on that offer, though). The room was spacious, clean, and had an interesting design. There was a complimentary bottle of water in the room. The bathroom was outside of the room in the hallway and was also clean. There was a microwave we were free to use. Internet was also included.
Cons: on our first day, the elevator was not working and we needed to carry suitcases up four flights of stairs (although Francesco helped us with one, as I mentioned above). The water in the shower was initially freezing, then quickly turning to boiling. I literally had to catch these several seconds while the water was turning from freezing to warm to rinse myself, jump to the side as the water was turning to boiling, put on soap/shampoo, turn off the shower, and turn it back on again to catch those several seconds of warm water to rinse the soap/shampoo off. To his credit, Francesco admitted that there is that problem with the shower. We had some difficulty connecting to the internet, it seems that the internet was working best outside the room in the lobby. Also, the "Italian breakfast", which was a part of the deal, included only a cup of coffee/orange juice and a sweet bun.
