“homie feeling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

i highly recommend the hostel for family and friends..
keep in mind that the hostel has no signage outside so it might be hard to find.
the hostel is on the 1st floor of a building infront of the basilica church.

Stayed here with our daughter in Feb 2014. Fantastic accommodation, warm, clean, great location, (only 15-20 minutes stroll from the Colosseum). Stunning breakfast, with delicious fresh pastries and cappuccinos. And Marvin is the most welcoming host - very friendly and extremely helpful. Great value for money, peaceful, relaxing, highly recommended. (I am a light sleeper, but a set of ear-plugs overcame the small amount of street noise).

Nika Hostel made our stay that much more amazing in Roma, the Hostel itself was well presented, clean and had lovely facilities. We had a private room, that was exactly like a hotel room! It was a wonderful surprise as we have never stayed in a hostel before. The staff there, Marvin, - he was the most welcoming and helpful man, he made our stay and our engagement in Rome extra special by putting roses and even buying us a bottle of wine to share.

Nika Hostels location was brilliant too, only a short walk from the metro and a ten minute walk to the Colosseum. Marvin gave us a map and pointed us out all the best places to go on arrival and he made us fresh Italian cappuccino every morning with our breakfast pastry.

We didn't want to come home! I have recommend Nika Hostel to everyone I know as it was amazing value for money and was a an amazing place to stay! 100/100 all the way!!!!

I've been in Rome for a few days with friends to visit the city. This hostel is quite cheap but the quality-price ratio is absolutely great. The hostel is wonderful, the rooms are extremely clean and welcoming. Even the common bathrooms are always clean. In the hostel there is a small kitchen but it's big enough to let all of the few guests use it. The personnel is extremely kind and absolutely willing to help you in case you need advice for your staying in Rome.
I strongly recommend this wonderful hostel and I would definitely stay here again should I go back to Rome.

This is a very clean and friendly hostel it did not even feel like a hostel. Marvin was very helpful and knows his way around Rome. I would definitely stay here again. really really good place to stay. Only thing is there is stairs which you have to take your suitcase up but usually the staff help with this.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and clean

The hostel is small, but they are very thoughtful. The location is wonderful, less than 10 min walking in a slow pace from the Colesseum and is not far from the Central Station as well. They also suggest places to go, and help you if you have any doubts about how to get anywhere.
