The hostel is close to the main train station which makes it easy to access from both airports. It's also at walking distance from most touristic sites. I stayed for 4 nights in the double room, it was clean and pretty spacious. The hostel is very quiet so really good to be able to sleep after walking all day. But...

Stayed in a 3 bed dorm, so not too crowded. Breakfast is simple, yet, enough to start the day. Bathroom and shower worked well, though one of them tended to clog. On my second stay, the AC was not cooling properly at night, but since it was only one night I did not care for it. The staff was helpful...

Across from US embassy, very safe. Can walk or metro from here with ease. Friendly staff. Love the bean bag in the common space. Smaller place, maybe 28 beds or so, made the stay feel more like home, not very busy.

The location of this hostel is good. You can walk to any sights and there is a subway station near, which goes directly to the Vatican city. It is not too far from the Termini-station either. The room was spacious and tidy, and quite good value for money.

This Hostel is perfectly located in the heart of Rome. We stayed here with the family and we enjoyed the short distances to all Rome highlights. The rooms and facilities are good equipped and are perfectly clean. I will tell all friends to stay here, whenever they want to visit Rome.

The location of this hostel makes up for other problems. Most of the tourist attractions (pantheon, trevi fountain and spanish steps) are within walking distance. Bus stop and metro station are also very close. However, the breakfast can be improved. The biggest problem was the night time noise in the living room (mostly young backpackers and some locals). This can...

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighbourhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 20:00.
