A beautiful place to sleep when you travel alone or with a woman friend. We stayed for one night: the room was clean and confy. If you don't have your own bath towels with you, you can hire one for 2 Euros only!

Its location is convenient but it is very quiet. The prices of the rooms and food and drinks in vending machine are very cheap. The surroundings are very pleasant. You can walk to a beautiful villa and an ancient tourist site.

Everything was clean and comfortable and the kitchen area was large and well equipped. However, it's doesn't have much atmosphere for meeting other travelers. Everyone I met was friendly but mostly middle-aged women that were as eager to make new friends as I was.

I had my wallet stolen during my trip in Rome and luckily I stayed here. Valentina at reception helped me a lot by locating the police station and even gave me a bus ticket as I had no money at all. I managed to feed myself for 24 hours by making use of donated food left behind by previous guests....

I stayed in a 4-bed dormitory with its own bathroom. The room was spacious with two big windows to the yard. It was cleaned and tidied up every day.The bed, though a bit narrow, was comfortable. Tea and coffee were provided for free in the big and equipped kitchen. During the night it was very quiet. The ladies at the...

I stayed here for 1 week just before Christmas in a shared room. The best thing about this hostel is the location, as if you are not shy of walking a little you are able to get everywhere important in Rome just by walking, and it is especially close to the Vatican. I found the staff polite and helpful, the...

The hostel is in a great location and walking distance to everything you need. The staff were unable to book a taxi to pick me up from the airport. The shower in the bathroom constantly flooded, and my private room didn't feel so clean. For 60 euros a night I expected more. I can't comment on the dormitory style accommodation.

The place it is well located. You can basically walk to Vatican City and surroundings. If you like to walk you can reach easily other points in the city or take a bus.

The hostel is nice enough, room is basic but serviceable, amenities clean. Unfortunately the hostel is way to loud at night. Nevermind the noise from the streets, that's tolerable but the people in the courtyard/bar/outside keep laughing and talking until late at night and nobody tells them to tone its down or go elsewhere. Similarly, other residents phone and Skype...

Dear Madam, thank you for the review! We are sorry for the inconvenience but we wrote an email to the restaurant owners to complaint for the noise late at night. We went several times downstairs but the staff did not consider us. We told to the guest who was talking on Skype to stop because she was disturbing the other...

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A women only Hostel in the center of Rome. Our Hostel is located inside the Internationa Women's House in a XVI century ex convent. We are in the famous Trastevere district: bars, restaurants and city nightlife are few blocks away, as well as the major sightseeings: St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican Museums, Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona ecc. We have some private rooms and some dorms all with wodden ceilings and antique "cotto" tiles. Our Hostel is an ideal place for solo travellers, and for all the people who like to relax after a day out. ... more   less
