Trastevere is a little out of the way but it is a lovely part of the city to explore anyway. Just a short walk up the hill from the hostel there is a fantastic view of the whole city.
I was in a room with four beds and an ensuite bathroom with shower. The shower filled up with water but this seemed to be just a way of ensuring you only spent 2 minutes running the water! The bathroom remained clean and dry throughout my two day stay.
The comings and goings of the other two women were very considerate and did not disturb me too much. There was a basic breakfast included - toast bread, cheese, jam, cornflakes, milk and coffee/tea.
I would definitely stay there again as it was much cheaper than the alternatives. It was may and so we didn't need the large fan in the centre of the ceiling. Probably warm in summer.
