I stayed here for 2 nights and was overall happy with my stay. Clean dorms, friendly staff, wifi throughout and a kitchen and living room available for use. A couple of things made me dock it a star though - there was some mould on the walls in the shower (high up, not within reach, but still...). Also the beds...

Nice Hostel! Frindly staff. Inlcluded breakfast. Clean bathroom, inside the bedrooms, the only problem is that if you take a shower after everyone, you might end up without hot water. They also don't have plugs in every bed to charge your devices. They have a big locker that can fit a suitcase! And also a printer if you need one...

The hostel is very central. The staff is nice and the rooms are clean. Atmosphere is good there. We paid 31 € including tax. Breakfast is included but don't expect much. Only cheap toasts. We would definitely go there again.

I thought that it was a bit expensive, especially with the "accomodation" tax that was not mentioned on Hostelbookers, but this is a good place, in the centre, not far from the train station. The facilities are good and the staff is nice. The common room is really comfy, with TV and a computer. There's free wifi.

I stayed at this hostel for 3 excellent nights after having originally planned for 1. Each day I asked the staff if they could book me in for another night and they were more than accommodating, and a answered so many of my questions about how to get around the city, tips, costs, etc etc. I stayed both downstairs and...

We stayed in a double room with an ensuite. Clean, friendly, safe and good value for location. All rooms are off the main kitchen/dining area so can be a bit noisy. Bed was comfy, room had air conditioning.

This place sets the standard for how hostels should be. You aren't smack dab in the middle of things, but after a day in hectic Rome, you are thankful for it. It's set in the business district, which is fun to walk around during the day simply because you will be one of the few tourists around. Do not hesitate...

The best thing about this hostel was how sociable everyone was. It was good to have a shared kitchen and seating area to socialise in. There seemed to be lots of single travellers so was great for getting to know people. Breakfast was a bonus. Bedroom roomy and bathroom and room very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful and...

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.
