The first thing I noticed about this place was that it had no A/C. When you're in Rome during the middle of July this is a very big deal. Just so you all know this was my first stay in a hostel so maybe I had too many expectations. Check in went smooth with the exception of the unadvertised 10 euro key deposit (I did get the deposit back when I left). If you come early they have a luggage room for you to store your bags in, but once you do get up to your room there are no lockers or anything to secure your things in. Hope you trust the random 3 or 5 other people that you're living with. The rooms were clean and the hostel provided sheets but not towels or soap. Showers were hot even if they were a bit old and looked ready to fall apart. The hostel also had free wi-fi but it could only be used in the very small common room which filled up quickly. The network was also going down constantly so not the best place to talk on skype or anything like that. What saved this place from being a 2 was that the staff was so nice. Any questions you had they were more than willing to answer and they went out of their way to make you feel welcome. If you head there sometime soon be sure to say hello to the two cute British girls who work at the desk and downstairs in the cafe.

Great quality for what you pay. I have stayed in 4 hostels in Rome and this one was by far the best. We had a very nice double room with a bathroom and AC which was modern, clean and comfortable. Towels and soap were provided. They also have breakfast downstairs for 3 euro which was pretty good compared to other hostels. The location is prime, doesn't get much better than this place for the price.

I was here for 3 nights... Location of the hostel is just walking distance from Roma Termini... check in is only at 15:00... so if you land up early, you can keep your bags in common luggage room and come back at or after 15:00...even though you book Male dorm, you might end up in Mix dorm...power points are available in room..bathrooms are very small, no place to keep towels , soap etc...hot water available 24X7.. separately..wireless is not available in rooms, you have to go to bar down-stares buy a drink and use the wireless... there are two m/c with internet in reception ..if you have laptop you can use wired internet in reception (only two LAN points)... you have to buy breakfast.. in 3 euros you get buffet breakfast.. staff is very friendly and always help you especially Masof and Kabir.. over all this is an average hostel..great location, good for night shelter

We stayed just one night at this hostel (thank god) because the original hotel we booked had problems with the bathroom and they sent us to this hostel. The place is located on the second floor of an old building and there’s no elevator. The people of the reception were not nice at all and they payed little attention to the asks or problems you have. No free wifi on the rooms and just 2 free awful computers with the slowest internet connection ever.
Our room was old, with dirty walls and a terrible bed, with the oldest mattress. Luckily we had a room with a private bathroom. Still the bathroom wasn’t clean and it was too old. The towels were not white, but grey! The lady who cleans does a great job, but considering the infrastructure of this place, she can't do miracles either.
Another important thing, they have bed bugs… and the breakfast it’s not included in the price. For the 100 euros per night you pay it’s a poor value. We stayed before at another place in Rome (Rome Accommodation B&B) and paying only 10 more euros per night, you get a wonderful and clean room, nice breakfast and new mattress.
Also, you have to pay in cash the room and the city tax (before you use the room), so once you’re there, it’s too late for regrets.
Please, look a little more and find better places than this!
