“Not the Best”
Reviewed 21 April 2013 via mobile

The place is incredibly hard to find because there is no sign outside at the check in area. The showers trickled with really dirty bathroom floors. The rooms are decent with comfortable beds, a fan, and extra blankets. The free breakfast is merely a donut. For a cheap place near the train station, this place is not the best.

That morning, my friend and I arrived at the hostel after a long, exhausting night train travel, and I really felt terrible and sick. The staff found out about my poor physical condition, and she allowed us into the room ahead of the scheduled time. The girl at the reception and the Chinese lady are really kind and helpful.
The free breakfast is decent, in a good environment too.
The hostel is only a few minute's walk to the Termini, the central train+bus station, so the location of the hostel is really convenient.

Sweet memories.for Mary & Frank ...

The reception is in the pizzeria quite close to the hostel. After check-out you can leave the luggage there for free till the pizzeria closes (11.00 p.m.). The hostel had 3 or 4 rooms. Mine was 6 bed mixed dorm, but the room was so tiny and dark (the window was covered from the outside) and all the beds were very close to each other. No lockers. My bed was very uncomfortable, but had clean sheet. No wifi as well, though it is advertised that it has it. The bathroom was quite ok. There were 2 bathrooms in that area. Breakfast was served in the mentioned pizzeria - coffee and croissant as everywhere :)

Everyone was friendly and helpful, and the location was really good near a train station - Termini. The room and the beds were quite nice and so comfortable, but didn't have internet access. The showers weren't good and the bathdroom weren't quite clean. The breakfast great, but didnt have variety. I enjoyed being there.
good staff in a good hostel.

We went there in April last year. It was a very good surprise considering the price we paid (around 30 euros per night). The room was spacious, the bathroom recently refreshed and clean. We didn't notice any particular noise.
Every nice monument in Rome can be reach walking and there is a very nice bar close to the hotel to have a drink after a hard day "touristing".

The only bad point would be for the breakfast which is mainly made of a coffee and a croissant, not enough if you plan to walk the whole morning.

Pretty easy to find and near the main train station. However, take note that the check-in is in a completely different street to that of the hostel apartment itself (a restaurant). Hostel is a flat (possibly flats) converted into room with communal area and two bathroom/toilets to share between three bedrooms. Bathroom floor always wet which isn't pleasant in the middle of the night . Could do with some air conditioning (rooms had aircon unit but didn't work), kitchen or at least fridge and some better bedding. Breakfast consisting of pastry and coffee/juice was included. I would recommend looking into accommodation with air conditioning before considering this place if traveling in summer.

Me and my family stay here overnight. The hostel is very near Roma Termini. But also very near restaurants and bars, so its noisy at night. I was barely able to sleep. The beds were squeaky and had bed bugs. Me and my daughter ended up with lots of bite marks. The lady who served the breakfast is not very friendly, we were treated like we were inconvenience to her own schedule... The bathroom floor is always wet, not very good drain and shower setup. We will not stay here again.
