The staff was funny and very nice. Luigi was the best tourguide! The walking tours were interesting and they had a lot of activities in general and around christmas. The bathrooms were very clean and they were very careful around covid related things. Everything is close, like the trevi fountain (10min walk), colosseum (15 min walk) and the best pizza place I've tried so far (Trieste pizza).

Free Hostels Roma offers both rooms and beds in dormitory rooms just 5 minutes' walk from Manzoni Metro Station. This hostel features a colourful shared terrace.

Enjoy excellent transport links from Free Hostels Roma or take a pleasant 20-minute stroll to the Coliseum.

I liked everything. From the people working here from every little detail of the decorations. I liked how clean it was. Ideal for a few days (stayed 4 days). The staff was great. I don't remember everyone. Yasmine who was part of the team was especially helpful and hospitable. The beds were comfy. I liked the fact that you can close yourself in there and have your privacy when you feel that you need it and at the same time you can just open your nest, as the hostel calls it, and talk to your neighbor or if they are sleeping go down to the bar for a beer.

Youth Station Hostel is located in Rome, 120 metres from Bologna Metro. It offers rooms and dormitories with free WiFi and air conditioning.

Dormitories come with a lockable cupboard. Rooms feature a private bathroom.

It is a great place to stay, with a nice staff and location. Close to the Metro station and Villa Torlonia park. The surrounding area is full of old villas and it was particularly beautiful because of blossoming trees and bushes. Marco (a staff member) messaged me so I was able to check in earlier and communication with the staff was great overall. There was a kitchen with a kettle, an inductive stove, a microwave, and a bunch of dishes. A grocery store is next door with a bakery and some ready meals. Clean lady cleaned everywhere every day. The Wi-Fi was good and there are plenty of tables in rooms and in the kitchen if you need to work a bit.

Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    Really very good budget option for single female travellers as this is female-only hostel rooms There are some double-rooms, but in general, this place feels very safe and beds are surprisingly comfy, not the type you expect from the hostel they have storage rooms (you need lock) and now introduced late night reception, which is AMAZING Also, don't forget common small kitchen facility on 5th floor and terrace on 6th floor Also, i saw they agreed to refund a guy who made a reservation there by mistake - which was very nice of them

    Great location, safe, clean, good value. I hadn't stayed in a hostel since I was single and in my 20s but this time I was there with my two children (ages 9 and 12) and my two parents (in their 70s) and all had a great time. We had private triple rooms (three twin beds and private bathroom) The staff was great, the rooms were comfortable, and the breakfast was good. Would definitely stay here again.
