  • The front staff was really nice and there is a nice bar set up inside and roof bars set up sporadically during the week. Good vibes inside and very conveniently located near Termini train station that can connect you anywhere quickly (or you can even walked to most places). The lines at the hostel bar can be a bit long, especially when you are taking part in an all-you-can-drink. Another bartender would help the situation. Other than that, it was great.

  • Great hostel, it's in a great location (walking distance to the coliseum) the rooms are clean, the staff is always willing to help. Only downfall is there is no kitchen or breakfast included if you're on a tight budget.

  • The hostel was a nice hostel with a cool roof-top bar. You aren't in the city center though, but it is easily walkable from where you are. Close to the train/bus station, and easy to get to and from the airport. Dinner suggestions were not very good,and restaurants close by were not that great. Beds are a little old and loose, and they have lockers that you will need a lock for. Not a lot of air flow. Great in room bathrooms with good water pressure and hot water. Staff wasn't overly friendly.

  • One thing i want to suggest, connection with all the busses going to airport. Like selling a ticket for the buses too. Is less stress for the guest. Like i'ved experience, long line to get the buss ticket and it takes times to the travellers. I'm planning to take 4:30 am buss going to airport, but because of the long line in the ticket boot. I missed the buss at 4:30. I'ved been in the line going to ticket boot 20mins.before 4:30, still i missed the buss.

  • I didn't enjoy the fact that the hostel itself was seperate from the main check-in building because I felt that if something did go wrong we weren't close enough. Also, there should be a backup router for the wifi. The whole time I was there I didn't have wifi in my room because it was down making it inconvenient trying to plan, talk with family and my husband while staying in my room. Overall though I enjoyed everything else. You have to pay for the breakfast but I think it's a good investment.

  • The cleanliness staff behavior were bad! On our first night I was given bedsheets covered in crusted stains. When I brought them to the reception, the staff treated me as a burden. They threw a fit and insulted me in Italian. The hostel's key-card system rarely works. We needed help getting in. Between the two of us traveling we were only allowed one key. The bathrooms were dirty,with faulty taps. The location is great, right off the main Termini station. But I wouldn't stay here again.

  • It was a good place that provided me with a bed and a nice bathroom. The staff was very friendly, and were always available. I would recommend it for people trying to spend as little as possible, while at the same time, looking for a place that isn't disgusting.

  • It was very pleasant stay. I like the location, atmosphere and it's great value for money. What I recomend is to create more space for hanging clothes and put more chairs in the room (not 1 for 8-). And the lockers: you should have your own or buy it. Other things I really like, the party was great, the staff helps you and aswer questions, facilities for the hostel are also good. And it's situated 10 minutes from train station, but on the calm street.
