I'm currently staying here as I write this. I see many hostels on here, but based on price, this is the best out there. Why spend money on a place if you're going to spend most of your time out in the city? I'm in a 2 person room and I got put in room 5. I chose this place because of the amount of reviews and it lives up to all of them. Ever day around 12 there are 2 people that come in and clean the place. There's usually one person in charge and this place has a really laid-back college dorm like feel. It's right near Termini like other places, but this is the closest hostel to the US embassy. The internet here is pretty quick. Danny and Francesca are wonderful. Everyone working here speaks English and you never know who's coming through that door. There is an elevator you have to go up to reach the 3rd floor. It make be tight if you have luggage and are with another person. You can use the fridge but make sure you label your stuff. There's also a couple of metro stops nearby (Reppublica and Barberini). There's a Carrefour express nearby so if you want to eat on a budget, it's within walking distance. There's also more space on the 2nd floor so there shouldn't be an issue with occupancy. It can get noisy in the communal area, but that's ok. The hot water comes on pretty quickly and it gets really hot, so be careful. There's a 2 euro fee for a towel that you can use for your entire stay. The 3,50 Euro a night tax has to be paid in cash. Checkout is between 8-11 in the morning. You'll get 3 keys, one for the front door, another for the hostel door, and a 3rd for your room. Room 5 doesn't have a drape for the window, but all the other businesses are closed by the time you go to bed. Depending on what's going around, things may get a little noisy.
