La Controra Hostel Rome
Ranked #28 of 1,205 Speciality Lodging in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 October 2016

Excellent location: 10 minute walk from Roma Termini station / 10 minutes from Metro Berninini / 15 minutes form Trevi fountain and Spanish Steps.
Excellent rooms - lots of space, comfortable beds, modern decor, lovely bathroom and common area.
There are 2 floors, 1st and 3rd. I stayed on the 1st. Free breakfast from 08.30.
Friendly, helpful staff. Space to keep your suitcases after checkout and a bathroom to use.
So in summary, the hostel surpassed my expectations. It was clean, close to important attractions and travel spots and also has free wifi. Would stay here again no problem.

Room Tip: I staye din room of 4; had lots of space.

Everything was very clean and ready upon our arrival. offered many services, had a nice common lounge, and provided breakfast. It was also a short walk to termini and near a metro station. Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were clean.

The location of this hostel makes up for other problems. Most of the tourist attractions (pantheon, trevi fountain and spanish steps) are within walking distance. Bus stop and metro station are also very close. However, the breakfast can be improved. The biggest problem was the night time noise in the living room (mostly young backpackers and some locals). This can get onto your nerves after a long day in the city. Overall, it is a good place to stay if you manage to get a room away from the living room.

This hostel is on a quiet street walkable distance to most things in Rome & less than 10 mins to the metro station. The rooms are clean & comfortable with big lockers & nice bathrooms. I also had an aircon (not sure if every room does). Breakfast is basic & the staff are friendly & helpful in answering all your questions & making suggestions of where to go.
It is a little expensive for a hostel but you are staying in central Rome.
