I'm looking for a good hostel in Rome. Really don't care about centrality, as long as it is quiet, friendly and not too expensive. Any good experiences?

Thanks,
Niels

Hey Niels,

We stayed at the Colours Hostel last year for Easter - It's near the Vatican so it was good for the easter parade and the service. We found it to be a pretty small and quiet hostel with a nice little balcony and a handy kitchen.

There was plenty of accomodation around, I'd give hostelworld.com a try or check out a lonely planet / rough guide etc. for decent reviews.

cheers

ben

Last year March we stayed in Absolute. About 10 min from Termini station, where the airport buses arrive.
At the opposite of the B&B the best and oldets ice cream bar of Roma.

This is the description:

Absolute B&B is well connected to all major historical monuments such as the Vatican, the Spanish Steps, the Fountain of Trevi and the area surrounding Via del Corso with the metro Line A, which is found 200 metres from the B&B and connects all of Rome's historical centre.
Only a few minutes walk past the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Piazza Venezia you may reach the Basilicas Santa Maria Maggiore and San Giovanni in Laterano and the University area of San Lorenzo.
You can reach Trastevere with tram n° 3, the perfect place for a romantic evening and the Catacombs with bus n° 218, located on the ancient Appia Antica.
Absolute B&B in Rome, quiet and bright, is situated on the fourth floor of a 19th century Patrician building and has recently been restored. Absolute B&B offers large rooms with private bathrooms, liberty style furniture, 4.20 metre-high ceilings, soundproof windows, TVs, air conditioning and ceiling fans.

Absolute B&B is run directly by us!! Giulia, who is Italian/Swedish and Alexis, who is Italian/Greek.
We speak Italian, English, Swedish and Greek and have had years of experience in the tourism field. We believe that Absolute B&B in Rome is the ideal accommodation to ensure an enjoyable holiday while experiencing the history of the city.

google 'Accommodation Planet 29'. It's on Via Gaeta about 3 mins from Termini station. It is 3 yrs since i was there but we had a nice room, lovely bathroom (shared) and I think it was only 35 E each a night, well worth it, and could come and go with our keys. I would stay there again.
