If you're looking for a clean, relatively well-located and relatively cheap place to sleep in Rome this is a great match. I stayed in the dorm room and it was much larger and cleaner than almost all the other hostels I've stayed in. It's also nice to feel like you're more in a hotel.
However, this is mostly a budget hotel, most of the rooms are private doubles. In this regard, I feel like the staff should be a bit friendlier and more helpful. Perhaps it was because I was there over a holiday weekend, but I often had to search the place to find the staff member who was supposed to be at the front desk and I had problems twice trying to get them to help me make reservations. Also, the internet conection was very slow and there was a lot of noise in the night from people constantly coming and going to the bathrooms.
I would stay here again if I was looking for a dorm bed but I don't think I'd stay here if I had enough in my budget to pay for a private room.
