I didn't leave this hostel with the same jubilation that I usually leave hostels with (you know, having had a great time, met loads of great people and not having spent too much...)
The staff on numerous occasions gave us incorrect information. I asked them about the RomaPass, which is pretty standard Rome tourist stuff, and the girl didn't even know how much it was, let alone what it entailed.
The room was good, nice and spacious, and the bathroom was also pretty decent, and just a couple of metres down the hall from our room.
Noise levels in this hostel were hideous. Obviously it's not the hostel's fault that we were next door to an obnoxiously vocal group of teenagers, but nonetheless, it detracted from our stay.
I would warn everyone too that if you choose to stay in the Downtown hostel, a lot of the things such as the 'Pizza Party' are actually in the sister hostel, a good 10 minutes away. Something we were less than thrilled with.
Breakfast was really good, however guess what...NOT INCLUDED in the price (even though on the website it says it is). I mean come on guys, that's just flat out deception!
I had an ok time here but next time I'm in Rome will seek a better alternative.
