Myself and six friends booked a six bed ensuite dorm with this hostel way back in january for a weekend in march. We rang the day before arriving to check everything was ok with the booking. The hostel confirmed it and said it was all perfect.
So after travelling all the way from Ireland that day via bologna and florence on the train we arrived to be told that no we were not staying there.
The staff were rude and no help at all. The told us that they had over booked and said we had to walk twenty minutes to another hostel. No explanation or anything. The couldn't even tell us accurately where the other hostel was. The place was filthy too. An absolute dump.
The other hostel is was part of the same chain of hostels. Roma Inn on via Urbana. DO NOT STAY HERE either. It is a building site. There are no doors on the rooms. its filty and covered in dust and dirt and you will have builders walking through your room at seven in the morning without so much as an excuse me.
AVIOD THIS CHAIN OF HOSTELS AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They ruined our weekend in Rome
