Viaje a Roma en verano y las habitaciones a pesar de tener un equipo de sistema de aire acondicionado, el mismo se encontraba descompuesto, por lo que el calor era insoportable.

Hello Edison, thank you very much for being at the Rome Youth Hostel "Casa Pessina". We are deeply sorry about the trouble of the air conditioning. Unfortunately, due the high temperature that we had in Rome, our air conditioning system failed, but now the operator is working to fix it. We hope to host you again in our hostel and we will be happy to offer you a discount for the inconvenience of your last stay. Looking forward to see you soon. Kind Regards. Rome Youth Hostel "Casa Pessina" Staff
