It was alright.Posted Feb 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
I came to Rome for four days and wasn't expecting much for a hostel. Having said that, the condition of this hostel was below my lowest expectations. The shower heads are broken, the rooms were beyond freezing, the beds are not at all comfortable, there is only one electrical outlet by the door, and the location was worse then I Initially thought. You have to take a train into Rome (15 minute ride) then take cab/bus throughout the city. The staff, however, was friendly. I did not like how they went to the side door and stick their heads out to smoke. The entire hostel smelt like an ashtray after this. This area of ciampino isn't at all aesthetically pleasing or clean. Don't expect you use credit/debit cards either. Every place I went to was cash only. Would I recommend this to anyone, not really unless they wanted something extremely affordable. Will I ever stay here again? No.

Close to Ciampino Airport...but that's about it.Posted Jul 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very convenient location because I needed to fly from Ciampino Airport the next morning, and a shuttle bus leaves from just outside the hostel. Unfortunately, the hostel receptionist gave me the incorrect shuttle time, meaning I was pushed for time and a bit stressed getting to my flight. Go outside and check the timetable yourself!! The bed and the room in general was very comfortable, but the showers and bathrooms weren't. There were three showers, one was broken and the other two were only a trickle of water which was cold. There is a common room with a television, but no movies that I could find, and nothing was done by the hostel to encourage socialising - no events or any advertisement of any local bars/events. Got the general vibe that the staff merely couldn't be bothered working here. Would not stay here if I wanted to see Rome, and might have stayed on at my previous hostel and arranged transport to the airport from there.
