Très bon accueil, personnel disponible et agréable. Lits inconfortables et peu solides (barre de fer qui s'est détachée sous le poids de mon fils) matelas trop usés. Douches et wc communs : auraient besoin de ménage au moins deux fois par jour car beaucoup utilisés et vite souillés. Ne donne pas envie de s'y laver et de poser ses affaires. Avons apprécié les casiers à disposition pour les effets personnels (et ceux pour les dépose-bagages le jour du départ). Certains équipements cuisine en panne.

This hostel is great! The location is super convenient. The atmosphere here was very social and I had the opportunity to meet some incredible people. The staff are also excellent, making sure to have your best interest in mind at all times - shoutout to PJ for being the best! Highly recommend if you are doing Rome on a budget/want to meet fellow travellers!
