This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great location! 5 mins walk to the Vatican. Really friendly helpful staff. Free wifi which was handy. Apart from that it was a pretty grotty place... Beds were really quite awful, saggy as anything and really squeaky! The rooms were covered in dust and muck. They had no towels so was given a bed sheet to use. The showers smelled of something quite awful, one of the toilets was broken and there were vents in the door so people in the hostel could hear what you were up to... There was no common room so it wasn't particularly social. Wouldn't stay there again.

Its near to the Vatican, but no so clean, clean sheets, but never seemed to clean the floor. Besides the common bathrooms and showers are very uncomfortable.

Really clean and nice. Real close to the metro station which was a plus. You can see the dome of the Sistine chapel from there which was pretty cool.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I really enjoyed this hostel. It was right next to the Vatican, which made getting their early to beat the crowd really easy. It was really clean and located a lot of great cafes and fantastic gelato! All of the staff that I interacted with seemed to be native English speakers and they were all very nice. The only downside is that they have a lockout period, which happens to be at the hottest part of the day.

Just don't leave anything on your bed when you go out. I left a book there and when I came back the bed was made and the book had vanished. They have lockers though! I just didn't think anyone would take a book.
