This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Although we were worried about 12 beds in a room (noise), it was just fine. Everything looked clean, organized and neat. The floor had lots of room, but the bathroom was big and there was one toilet inside the room as well, which is very convenient at the middle of night. The breakfast for 2 euros was nice and the happy hour drinks in the bar were very cheap too. The atmosphere between the guests was welcoming, everybody respectful, young and happy. Nice sitting area outside bar, with very friendly staff. However, we thought the reception staff a little bit grumpy and not too friendly. We tried to stay one more night, but it was all booked out, so, we advice people to book ahead on time.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was a clean place, full of young guys, with a free wifi service at the reception and the bar that is located in the first floor...if you have a laptop or wifi device..excellent. If you dont, they have some laptops for free the first 30 minutes...after that its like 1 euro per hour...

Good location near TERMINI (train station that conect with fiumicino airport train service called LEONARDO EXPRESS...BUY THE RETURN TICKET, ITS CHEAPER) and CASTRO PRETORIO subway station (5 minutes walking or so)

REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR SHEETS AND PILOW COVER TO RECEPTION WHEN YOU CHECK OUT OR YOU´LL HAVE TO GO BACK UPSTAIRS FOR THEM...

THE SERVICE WAS OK, BREAKFAST NOT INCLUDED, CLEAN DORM BATHROOM AND TOILETS....I DIDNT EXPECT ANYTHING ELSE FOR THE MONEY I PAID, SO...GOOD DEAL.-

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It is a nice and clean hostel not far away from the "classical Rome" and it can be reached easily via the Termini train station. The staff is friendly but a little cool and distant, for my taste.
For all of us travelling with a computer or wifi-device the free internet access is a blessing.
In the evening you can sit outside the hostel or inside the yellow bar and meet other travellers while having a drink or two. But for in my opinion, the beverages were quite expensive.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The people here are great. My biggest complaint would be the water temperature which was insanely hot! Other than that mostly good things. The general hang out area is the Yellow Bar which also has outdoor seating and is a great place to meet people. Nice big lockers, which are fairly quiet. All the staff speak English and anything typed is written in English. 30 minutes free of internet everyday on laptops which you can check out from the front desk. It can be a bit noisy, but relatively similar to the noise level in most hostels I've stayed in. Technically no food or beverages allowed in the rooms, but the staff generally seems to overlook this. Close to Termini Station where you can catch the subway or many buses. Also within walking distance of many sights.
