Good 7.8 From 134 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Basic but good enough
The hostel was good for what it was. It's super close to termini so that was convenient but it was far (about 20 min walk) to the main part of Rome. Which isn't bad I would probably stay here again. The staff aren't very helpful at other hostels staff will take out a map and show me places/streets whatever that I should go to but here they just check you in or answer your questions. Which is fine. They're really nice they helped me when I was checking in cause one girl didn't properly check out or something in my room so it seemed like there wasn't a free bed but the guy from the front desk came in and figured it out after basically interrogating everyone in the room. It was awkward but the people in the room weren't being helpful either so whatever. I was glad the guy at the front desk just dealt with it quickly and efficiently.

The staff were always there if you needed help with anything, the air-condition in the room was amazing! I had a great time while in Rome.

Never come back again
Have to checkout the room one hour earlier, at 9 a.m., without any notice at booking time, bad smell in the room, waiting for more than half and hour for check in, paying for storage room, noisy ...

Good place for budget traveler.
Great location, friendly staff. Little bit noisy because of noise from outside. Some other inconvenience but lets think about the price. Totally recommendable.
