Friendly staff, but there was a REALLY noisy air ventilator in the room, right next to my bed, which made sleeping very difficult. I asked the manager to fix this, but I didn't hear anything. Turning it off was also not an option, this would mean the room would be very very cold.

The hostel is about what you can expect. There was not much reason to complain. However, I didn't like the breakfast for € 5. It tasted horrible.

We were 3 friends who needed a place to stay for 1 night in Rome. We stayed at a 6 person female dorm, there was noone but us so it was a nice experience . The room had its own private bathroom, it was very clean and comfortable to stay. Only negative comment is that we had to bring padlocks ourselves and we would have also liked to be able to check in before 15:00. But still, most of the tourist attractions were at a walking distance so the location was nice. I recommend.
