“Great location!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed there for three nights. The place was very easy to find from the trainstation. Max. five minutes walk. It was also pretty close to anything. On the other hand our room was on the streetside so the noise was quite loud. Rooms and toilets were comfortables so nothing to complain about those. Security may be problem for someone, because there were no safety boxes or anything like that and it depends much on your roommates, is it safety to keep your bags and stuff on the room. My girlfriend also had some problems with wi-fi her iPhone didn't seem to find it but this iPad which I'm writing right now had no such problems.

We stayed here for four nights in a three bed dorm. Only real complaints were that no one was around when we checked in so we had to wait with our luggage for an hour or so before the door was unlocked for us. Also, wifi was a bit spotty in our room at times, but overall the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was absolutely perfect for visiting the Vatican and other sites around Rome. Definitely recommend for those looking for a cheap place to stay with few frills that offers an excellent jumping-off point for touring Rome.

Pensione Ottaviano is pretty good if you don't expect luxury, let's be honest. It met our expectations and we didn't have any right to complain ;-) Rooms were clean, showers maybe not that much (they're just old) but the staff is really willing to help you anytime. If you need a map, want to chat for a bit with a cup of tea or just hear about interesting places that are worth visiting, jusk ask.

We loved the location nearby Vatican, couldn't be any better if you ask me! Though we traveled the whole city on foot, Ottaviano was always easy to find. Good place for good price.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a six bed dorm room in November 2013. Our room was clean and so were the bathrooms, good wifi, the location was perfect for visitng the vatican and the staff were very friendly. The toilets and showeroom open up onto the corridor which is a bit weird but overall its not a major problem. The rooms had huge lockers, we were able to put in all of our belonging in the day which was extremely helpful and reassuring. Only bad points to the hostel was there was no kitchen, and it was a bit loud at night and in the morning.

Alright, this Hostel met all you basic needs. Very friendly staff but only there early morning and evening. But help you feel welcomed and comfortable. Location couldn't get any better for the price!!!!!! Hostel was fairly clean, but the shower situation was not the best. No towels for rent or anything and everyone showers in separate showers but in the same room. You have to bring your own locks for the lockers and the four bed room doesn't have and outlets which is a down fall. Also the wifi is slow but they have it so you can't complain!!!! Over all it was good enough.

Me and my friend stayed there for 2 days, and the hostel provided everything we were looking for. Location was really easy to find and it was pretty central. Rooms were clean and tidy and staff was really friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.
