  • I booked the hostel at last minute and got there quite late so didn't really have a chance to judge the hostel. but the receptionist was very friendly and helpful, and even gave me a free bottle of wine upon arrival which I've never gotten from a hostel before so that was really great. the rooms were of high standard and the location was really close to the roma termini central train station.

  • Good location. But no shareroom or kitchen. Which made it Hard to meet and talk to other guest. Got free breakfast at a small café near by That was not good. But good location near termini.

  • I recently stayed 4 nights at the Funny Palace in Rome and I had an amazing experience. The owner/manager, Mabri, was quick, friendly, and always helping his guests in one way or another. By the time our first 5 minutes together were up, he had highlighted several cool walking tours on a map with different colored highlighters for each route, started a load of my laundry, suggested some websites to ease my Vatican visit and gave me my keys, a bottle of complimentary wine, some breakfast coupons.

  • The staff of hostel in Things to Note, wrote this sentence (copy - paste): Plear note that we do have aga restiction 40 years for shared room ! ! ! What does mean word AGA ? If AGA means AGE, what does mean restiction 40 years for shared room ? Any restriction, based on race, nationality, age, ..., are DISCRIMINATION due to European Union rules !

  • This hostel is hard to find but I am contended with staying this hostel. I originally booked a dormitory but They upgrade my booking into a private room without extra charge. And this hostel is very clean and bathroom is spacious I think. If I had a chance to revisit Rome, I would like to stay this hostel again.

  • There is no front desk. It appears to be in laundry shop accross the street so if the shop is closed you will have a hard time to find the front fesk. The people that were in charge seemed a bit sketchy. No atmosphere at all there are no common areas so it was hard to meet anyone.

  • I only stayed there for 2 nights, this place is close from Roma Termini station, it's cheap, I never saw a kitchen or a common room. Apparently it was clean but the toilet was really dirty, it hadn't been washed for months, the cleaning people came into the room without knocking on the door, they started to ask me about what the other people did last night, I wasn't there to do the job, the staff emailed me asking for a 100% review. I wouldn't stay here again nor would I recommend it to anyone.
