“Ridiculous Cancellation Policy:”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

This Hostel has what may be the most ridiculous and unforgiving cancellation policy on the planet. We were charged the full rate of the room for cancelling our reservation a full 5 days in advance of our stay. I certainly can understand a 24 hour policy, but 5 days. What is worse their website does not indicate that this time frame is in effect. Several communications to the establishment to discuss this aberation were never returned. Never again.

I stayed in one of the private rooms. The room was huge but no ac.
The location is only good because it's close to the station but that's about it!
Oh and up like 100 flights of stairs.
Wouldn't stay again but doesn't mean I would recommend it to friends.

Location is the best thing abt the hostel. If you are looking for a good night's sleep this is DEFINITELY not the place to be. Everything else is just OK.

There is so much to do in Rome, one can't expect to stay all cooped in a hostel! My friend and I stayed at the Pop Inn for a couple of nights in the winter. Although there were no heaters, they provided many blankets or warmth. There were no working showers on our side of the building so we would have to leave our floor and go down the hall to the next one. The bathrooms were big and clean and one was always free.

There is no shared kitchen but there is one shared common room. They also have two computers with Internet but it's expensive to use.

The location of the Pop Inn was fantastic. It was right by the train station so it was perfect because there were subways going to all parts of Rome, trains going to all parts of Italy, and there is also a $14 train ride to the airport.
