This was our first time staying at a hostel and it was a great experience. Everything was very clean and ready upon our arrival. We had a private room/bath much cheaper then any hotel you could find in Rome. The location was very convenient and less than a 20 min. walk to most of the major sites. A breakfast of...

Super clean, great location, really safe, and felt like home. There's a small kitchen that we could prep lunch in to save some money in Rome. The rooms are also very clean (especially the bathrooms!). The staff were also very helpful!

this hostel was the best i have stayed in. it was clean, offered many services, had a nice common lounge, and provided breakfast. It was also a short walk to termini and near a metro station. However, what made the experience phenomenal was the staff. They were so friendly and willing to help us in a foreign city. I would...

It's good for group bookings as well. Not a lot of rooms so they keep it simple. Very clean, a nice and basic breakfast, lovely and helpful staff. It's a nice building, close to Termini station, friendly atmosphere. Would go back, for sure. :)

The staff were the best part of this place. They were friendly and helpful and full of information. Nothing was too difficult for them. The hostel was close to many sites and in a good location. It was clean and comfortable and I would recommend you stay there when in Rome.

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighbourhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 20:00.
