    The international atmosphere is good. There is a kitchen that can be used by guests. There is a computer in the hall with the access to Internet.

    The corridor between the rooms is used as common space and, therefore, it is quite noisy. The security is quite questionable.

    It's not actually near the train station, the location is just the office. The actual "hotel" (really a moldy apartment) is about a mile away (in the asain ghetto no less) from wear the address is. Also, this is not a hotel if anything it's more like an abandoned hostel.

  • Group of friends

    Pricey for what you get. The room had bed bugs and when it gets hot there is no fan. While it is good that there is WIFI the TV did not work and the toilets were average. It is a hostel and has several locations so you will not know where you are staying till yo get there. Which means that when you get to their central hostel you might have to walk another ten mintes to get to where you are staying.

    Location was the best. Economical and just enough for 2 people.

    No sign boards / directions on nearby streets. No warm water. No A. C. Complimentary Breakfast, although said to be included can almost be termed "non-existing"

    Clean, close to everything, but it was like a hostel..

    These guest houses are like guest houses.. Not like hotels!

    Very bad accommodation with worst conditions I ever had in hostel. They did not have available room that we booked (4-bed room with private bathroom) and gave us 4sqm dirty room with 5 beds in it and with very dirty shared bathroom. Conditions were like in military barrack and very smelly. Some guy slept in lobby in front of our door on armchair. This very very very bad accomodation I don’t recommend to enyone (even if you don’t have money for something else!!!).

    i liked only the location of this Pensionhouse,

    when we came the receptionist was not sure if he has room for us but gave us one. room was not clean and bathroom was untidy and smell was really bad. if you booking this place, please make sure that whole day you have what to do outside.

  • Group of friends

    nothing, horrible service!

    1. didn't provide us with a booked room on time 2. couldn't answer our questions about confusion with a room

  • Couple

    The staff was nice and let us to leave the luggage at the reception until we left.

    It is not a hotel, it is more like a hostel.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Our room was clean and relatively inexpensive for Rome. It was crowded with four people, but we only needed it for one night.

    We couldn't get coffee before 8 am, and we had to leave at 7:50.

    Good and polite staff,especially Victor. Very good, that breakfasts are included. I strongly reccomend this hostel.

    The owner was super friendly and helpful. He knew English as well, and kept offering to make sure everything was ok, and if there was anything he could do to help. Pointed out restaurants in the area, they had WiFi, etc. Right near the center of the city and train station. Overall a great place

    Since close to the train station, you hear road noise in your room. Rooms/floors were a little cold as well.

  • Single

    Good location near the train station. Viktor is friendly and helpful. Basic breakfast but good coffee. 2 hot showers, even if one is always busy. Good wifi.

    Not much soul to the living area. Might need a woman's touch! Lots of road noise.

  • Single

    The staff in this hostel is super nice.

    No locker or luggage room.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Reception is very friendly. He gave us all the keys, especially the key to enter the building. This is important, because if we don't have the keys and the receptionist is sleeping, we can't enter the building. Location is good. Close to main train station (roma termini) and subway station (vittorio emmanuele station). For muslim, there are a lot of halal foods in front of roma termini.

    No board sign. You need to look at the name of the hostel which is written very small in the wall next to the door.
