Excellent location near the Termini Station. Matt gave us our whole itenerary in the first ten minutes. husband reccomends staying here just for there advice on wher to go and how to get there. I knew where I wanted to go, opening times, how long it would take etc etc etc... but Matt gave us bus numbers and when to avoid lines, resturant recommendations. It was fantastic.

Beds were singles pushed together that slid apart. Did dampen our holiday but the sheets were queen size. modern decor. Western toilet. very secure - three doors to get into your room. We stayed in the building next door. Recieved a bottle of red on arrival. Didn't drink it as we are not red wine drinkers. Free 30mins internet per person. Enough for our three night stay. Rome is best seen at night if you want to walk the streets.

Great place to stay and after our chalet in Banff Canda, this would be our next best accomodation we stayed at in our 5 week world tour. Eat the the Taverna Alba around the corner for the best cheap Italian meals with authentic atmosphere and accoridan player. Breakfast was included but a coffee and sliver of cake or crossiant is not enough. Had to pay 1Euro to suppliment the coffee for a hot choc. We bought bananas at the fruit market and had biscuits to suppliment breakfast.

I my self have worked for a famous 5 stars hotel in Vietnam and would like to try to experience a hostel in Europe. As first sight, this hotel is really strange since the checkin point is an Internet and laundry shop but the room is more than decent: about 24 m2 and we have been upgraded to a room with separate bath room and WC. The hotel is just nearby the train station TERMINI so you can almost go every where. we have free internet and small breakfast. suggestion programme for 3 day: day 1: Vatican and its Museum (bus 64 or 40), discover the centre. day 2 Coloseo (bus 175). day 3: villas Borghese bus 910.
many interesting shop near on the way from Panthenon to Fontana di Trevi . leather shop : belt, leather i phone cover

Me and my cousin travelled in Italy for 5 days in September and we stayed at the Funny Palace hostel during our stay in Rome on 23rd and 24th nights. The location is very close to Roma Termini Station - just a 5 minute walk.

We were thankfully looking for the internet / laundromat reception, if not it would have been difficult to find the place as there was no name board suggesting the hostel's name at all. Anyway, having seen good reviews we chose this place and reserved a shared bathroom dorm. We were greeted by Matt, who was working there and ran us through the map of Rome and provided wonderful suggestions on where we should visit, and ideal times and also suggested good places to eat and also the hit Granita di Cafe.....
We were then greeted by Mabri (The owner I think), who simply upgraded us to a private double with ensuite due to a cancellation and that for free too! He also greeted us with a complimentary bottle of wine! now who would expect this from a hostel? It was simply awesome and when we were escorted into the room, we were shocked, it was a very nice room and very clean too! Mabri was so friendly and helpful too...I would definitely go back to stay there during my next visit if ever....and I would highly recommend this place....awesome location.

The breakfast as others mention, is offsite in a local cafe, but was limited to a coffee and a croissant of your choice, but was more than satisfactory for me and I have no complaints on that. All in all, it was a wonderful place to stay if you visit to Rome.

My girlfriend and I (25 & 23) were in Rome May 15, 2010. We stayed one night at the funny palace. Really close to the Termini. Were greeted with hospitality and shown a map with all the places to visit and close places to eat. Free breakfast in the morning. Stayed in a private room with own shower. Nice room, clean and ideal. Nice window to open wide and watch the street below. Overall great stay. I already recommended my brother & sister stay here when they visit Rome.
