Budget best in Rome

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 29, 2005

The Hostel is in a typical old European building which is neat if not slightly charming. It is essentially a residential building with a few floors at the front housing the more upmarket Hotel Starlight, however, Hostel Starlight is on an upper floor reached via stars in the inner courtyard - there is no lift for the hostel. Our room was the only double and it shares two bathrooms with the other 3 or 4 bunk rooms. As others have written, the manager does indeed live in a nook behind a curtain in the kitchen. If you can get over this, the place is clean and quiet plus the staff are polite and easygoing. As with many hostels the breakfast service remained a mystery, so factor in a couple of euros to get coffee and croissant out.

Unique Quality: We paid 35 euro a night for the double room which would have to be the cheapest legitimate room in Rome. It's a quite adequate base to explore Rome - just don't expect 5 star service at this price.

Directions: Arriving at Termini we walked along Via Giovanni Giolitti but it was not easy. We should have caught the tram, which goes to the corner of Via Cairolli and Via Princip Eugenio.<br/>Manzoni subway is 7mins. Supermarket is 2mins

Great hotel with nice rooms (with red curtains!), comfortable, clean, renovated, with TV...
The hotel is situated not far from the station (in a quiet neighborhood) and not so expensive : double room for 65 euros, breakfast included. The manager is a women coming from East of France married to a Italian and both speak perfectly French.

Directions: Near Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II (metro Vittorio Emanuele II)

Hostel in Rome

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 18, 2004

The room is okay. Clean washrooms. This private hostel has about 6 private rooms. About 15 minutes walk from main train station. It is located at a quiet street, but the way from train station to the hostel seems unsafe.

Directions: Chinatown.<br/>15 min south of main train station.
