I booked for 1 person for Carlito's Way but was upgraded (for free!) to stay in their sister hostel Des Artistes, so I am not in a position to comment on the room and such. Extremely close from termini station. However, the staff is extremely helpful throughout my 1 week stay there, and that's definitely a thumbs up from me. There are moments when the reception are swamped with people and they turned very slightly impatient, but that's understandable.

Stayed December 2013, travelled solo

Hostel was not at the same location as reception; We felt unsafe in and around the hostel. No common room or kitchen yet shared bathrooms in a quiet and errie hallway. Not a hostel or a hotel. Felt very threatened. DO NOT STAY

I stayed in a mixed 4 bed dorm room for 2 nights. The room was clean, with tv and wifi. Bathroom was clean also, just servicing too many people. Maybe 3 or 4 rooms with 4 beds in each?

The hostel is managed by the staff at hotel des artistes. They are very helpful, it's just a little bit random when you turn up to check in and then they take you to another building a block or two away.

Would potentially stay here again.

I walked into my room, at first I thought the red stuff on the wall was a mural, in fact it was some random girls period blood staining my bed and the wall which it was against. I turned to look at my fellow unfortunate travellers in their beds, they were dead. I tried to poke them to wake them up, but they were dead. It was at this point I realised the room smelt of rotting flesh. The receptionist at the front desk was so poor at administration that they had been there for 3 years and they had assumed the room was just booked out. Further I went for a shower and there was no hot water, by far the worst bit of the hostel. Shambles. Don't go.

We booked a 2-bed room with shared bathroom for 2 nights. It was in an apartment that was 3 blocks away from the hotel's reception. For that price, the place was beyond expectation. Clean and neat room. 8 minutes walk to metro station and surrounded by restaurants and shops. Everything seemed secure.

When my friend & I arrived to Carlito's Way Hostel back in April of 2004 to start our European trip, we were greeted with open arms at the front desk. The staff was super friendly. We actually went out with a few of them and it was fun. They are there to make your stay enjoyable and easy as much possible. The rooms were clean, restrooms top notch and staff was phenomenal. I would recommend this for sure. Oh, a little store is across the street let us stay until 1AM to drink outside. The neighborhood is great as well and the subway is right down the street. Enjoy!

Room Tip: I went to Hostels.com and I got a room for cheap.

O hostel fica a duas ruas do hotel onde se pode tomar café da manhã e deixar as bagagens. Isto é um pequeno inconveniente. Próximo ao metrô.
Porém os quartos do hostel são enormes, limpos diariamente, assim como os banheiros, que são amplos, separados dos quartos.
Ruim por não ter cozinha, o que é ruim quando se chega a noite e se quer comer ou beber algo antes de dormir sem ter que ir à rua.
Hostel térreo, o que é um grande conforto.
O café da manhã apesar de não ser muito barato, é simplesmente MARAVILHOSO!
A equipe é muito atenciosa e falam espanhol além do inglês.

The hostel is two blocks from the hotel where you can have breakfast and leave the luggage. This is a minor inconvenience.
But the hostel rooms are huge, cleaned daily, as are the bathrooms, which are large, separate rooms.
Bad for not having kitchen, which is bad when it comes to night and wants to eat or drink something before bed without having to go to the street.
Hostel ground, which is a great comfort.
The breakfast although not very cheap, it is simply WONDERFUL!
The staff is very helpful and speak Spanish than English
