    The bad experienced already started when we first arrived at the place at exactly the time we said (10:30 am). We rang the bell multiple time, without success. We then tried calling the number from our booking confirmation - no luck there either. After about 20 minutes of doing that, a couple came out the front door, telling us that...

Low price. MINUS 1. The hostel is hard to find. There is no sign on the street. 2. When we arrived, no staff was there to open...

    This hostel is more like staying at a small bed and breakfast or so, and rather than get the hotel feel, you get that stay at home, local home feel. There are either 3 or 4 rooms at the most, but the price is awesome for what you get. The room itself is very nice, as well as the shower....

    A very nice, feel-like-home place, a few minutes walk from the Coliseum. It is true that there's not much of a choice for breakfast and we didn't get fresh towels during our 4 day stay but this didn't really bother us as the price offered is great compared to the rest of Rome. There are plenty of places with the...

    This hostel have pretty amazing location, but don't expect any comfort. Except one huge silverfish i didn't notice any bugs, so it seems that this problem was solved (or there are no bugs during winter). Some fruits and cheap packed croissants were good for breakfast, but kettle was so messed up so i couldn't even make a tea in the...

    Bugs, everywhere! At least 130 we killed. Avoid this place, however the owner Francesca is probably a nice person, she doesn t really know how to deal with her badly infected hostel. She tried to do her best by using a spray, but everyday again we found bugs:behind paintings on the wall, in the frame of the bed, in the...

    My wife and I have been traveling for months and staying in mostly hostels. Hostels in Rome had mixed reviews and were all overpriced. We decided on Ape Latina because we could get our own private room at a cheaper rate that what we would have paid for 2 dorm beds in some locations. It is only a 5-10min walk...

    LOVED IT! =) We went there for 5 days in October and it was sooo nice. The apartment is clean, our room was very nice and cozy. The host Francesca is such a sweet person and always willing to help you with good advice about the must see places in Rome and also the best pizzerias and ice-cream shops =)....

    Neighbourhood Profile
    Monti
    Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
