Fabulous 8.6 From 55 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Good value in Rome
Great place to stay in Rome. Usually pretty quiet at night but just a few steps from restaurants and night life. Despite being cleaned daily, the bathrooms are typically a bit smelly, but it wouldn't deter me from staying again. Some of the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, but others act like every time you talk to them is a chore. Kitchen is great, but there's no space to keep your food and only two burners on the stove, so you might have to wait. I would stay again. Good value.

Great location, huge rooms.
Lovely stay at Orsa Maggiore. The rooms were huge, so each person had lots of space. The rooms were clean & beds were comfortable. The location was excellent, located a short walk from lots of restaurants and bars. Would recommend.

Excellent staff. Helped me get a taxi when the public transport went on strike on my departure date. Staff speak excellent english. Very close to everything you can possibly want to see when you’re in Rome. However I believe the room I was staying in had bed bugs, having got many bites over the night and having googled it and the room smelt the way it was suggested online. But can’t be certain as never saw any

Cozy Place in a Bustling City
The hostel was so calm, quiet, and cozy, a nice respite in the busy city. I appreciate that it is also in reasonable walking distance to so many things, including Vatican City. The staff was pleasant and helpful; the bed was firm, but comfortable; and the facilities were quite good. The room itself was so spacious, with four twin beds--very exciting after years spent crammed into small hostel rooms with bunkbeds!

Calm base in central Rome
This was my first time staying in a hostel "for women" and it was lovely - very calm environment with lovely fellow guests. The staff were great. The showers and bathroom areas were clean and there was always plenty of room. The local environment was noisy at night but that was to be expected and wasn't too much of a distraction. The kitchen was fine and I think they could use a third fridge as space was limited. There are bus routes nearby directly to Rome Termini and the bus service in Rome is incredibly easy to use as a visitor.
