Fair 4.0
Very very very basic
Staff was alright but got tired after the second question. I was in a 3 bed shared room. It was very basic. Small room with 3 beds almost stuck next to each other. No bunk beds, no curtains or any privacy. Room had a raunchy smell when I first got it but it eventually went away. The bathrooms were clean but the glass door/ shower curtain wouldn’t close properly on one of them. A bit far as well. 30 min walk to colosseum. Near a pretty ghetto metro station Castro Petro.

Clean and basic space to stay
It was quite good experience in this hostel. 1. Clean toilet, shower room. Free wifi. Didn't try the 12 euro breakfast. 2. The room is clean. 3. location is good, about 8 min walking to the Rome Termini station. 4. there is no real shared space in the hostel.

I am happy
The room is not too small so are the bathrooms and toilets. There are large lockers too. Iron and ironing board is in the corridor - good.

Good location, good staff
Location is pretty good - you can find more central places, but honestly you'd be in the centre from this hostel by only a few mins of walk. Friendly enough staff as well. Rooms are of OK size - but somehow the beds are put somewhat close to each other. Make sure to bring a standard-size padlock (not too small, not too big) as the lockers are in the corridor and you need to have your own padlock. One improvement I'd suggest is to put more towels in the bathrooms to absorb the water from the floor after shower (because sometimes it made a big mess, with wet floors). Also wifi signal really needs improvement :-)

Very Good 8.0
The hotel is around 10 minutes on a straight walk from Termini. Receptionist is okay, my room is pretty large on the 5th floor for 3 persons and it includes a sink with 2 mirrors. TV is good with cable. Shower and toilet is shared outside the room with other guests, but it was kept relatively clean. My AC is not working (it says heating only?) but it's not that hot on the day I stayed so whatever. The downside, my room is next to the toilet and shared room and it gets quite noisy at night. Breakfast is pretty pricey too, but there's a microwave and kettle in the shared room so I brought my own food. All in all a decent hotel if you're not too picky, but probably you could find a better deal if location is not your priority.

Helpful staff. Quiet location. Walking distance from all major attractions. Only complaints would be very poor WiFi and no in-room bathrooms.

Comfortable lodgings, gained instant experience at using trams. Downstairs toilet not a great thing. It was quite small, but clean. Information on security needs fully conveyed. One street away from the tram was ideal. Sofa bed needs replacing with a good bed.

A good place, close to the Metro, with everything relatively close, breakfast is a bit expensive however quite good. Would probably be better to stay in non-summer times however as there is no aircon, only a fan
