A worthed 26E/night, too bad it is for woman only!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 12, 2007

I went there for an Easter celebration.

As I was travelling alone, I didn't need much for an accomodation. I was just expecting for a clean shared bathroom, bedroom & breakfast - and the location should be near the Vatican. What I got here, is exceeding my expectation.

The location is only 10-15 minutes walk from the Vatican City. Or about 15-10 minutes to other tourist location. The hostel nestled in the ecletic and vibrant yet it remains genuine, trastevere.

The shared bathroom and bedroom was clean. You get free fresh and clean towel. You get your own bed - not those steel bunk bed that you might shared with someone else, a stranger below you and you on the upper deck - don't wory this won't happen here.

The breakfast was EXTREMELY GOOD for a hostel like this. They serve, when I was there, cheese, ham, breads (with various fruit jam and nutella - which i considered as a luxury as no other place that I stayed before, serve nutella!), biscuits, youghurts (again, with a various selection of fruit), "real" juice (what I meant with real juice is you get it straight from the cartoon, and so they don't mixed it with water. I experienced so many WATERY JUICE), milk, & a nice lady named Sandra, serving the lavazza coffee. She really knows how to use the machine and prepare a nice hot coffee for you. Usually just have to pour a cup from the container or jug. Here, she will made it for you exclusively, just like in the real cafe. Isn't it nice?

I would recommend ladies who can handle the 3.00 AM curfew to stay at this place. And I would stay here again of course - if I visit Rome alone or with my girlfriends - as male are not allowed to stay here. I need to find one nice place like this for my and my boyfriend..he.he..

Unique Quality: Others than all the quality they have, the nice shared bathroom, bedroom and breakfaste, they have these nice yard. You will see this yard after you enter a the big grey gate and passed the stairs. They have this one nice Magnolia tree in with small flower plants aroud it. You can sit there and relax, have a cup of coffee, or just to think or figure out what do you want to do that day..!!!
