I loved staying here! I have never stayed in a hostel before but chose to stay here as I had come to Rome to study italian for a week. I wanted to keep my costs down. I was so delighted with the location, the staff and the other guests. The place was very warm and cosy. No issues re heating or hot water. My roommates were from Columbia and Torino. They were super polite and kind. Women from all over the world were staying here. This place made me feel so proud to be a woman. I hope to return next year. Do bring flip flops and a lock for your cupboard. I rented a towel for the week which cost 2 euros. They could do with buying some more cutlery for the kitchen. A fresh tea towel every day would be helpful. All in all a wonderful stay.
Clean and very quiet

Nice women's only hostel. Very spacious. Seemed to be very very quiet while I was there with not many people around at all. Room was very large, unfortunately I found it to be very chilly at night even with 2 blankets on bed. Beds and pillows weren't the greatest. Hostel was extremely clean with cleaning staff doing a very thorough job every day. Bathrooms and shower room well kept. Staff was extremely nice, but as I do not speak any Italian there seemed to be a bit of language barrier when I asked for some recommendations. That being said they always did their best to answer my questions. The location is excellent!
No socialization; 3 helpful staff, one horrible staff person

First of all, the strength of this hostel is the location. Three of the staff members: the extremely short woman, the older woman and the woman who has worked there many years are very helpful. There is a young woman with long dark hair who works nights who is a nightmare! Let me admit--I had a horrendous time in Rome as I was almost run over in traffic sustaining injuries. The horrible night woman actually sneered and became quite sarcastic when I returned to the hostel late and requested assistance contacting the shuttle company to arrange departure. Yes, I was late but there was no reason for her to take such joy in saying she could not assist in any way. Ended up having to pay for a taxi to the airport. I really had high expectations for this hostel but there was absolutely no interaction in the common area, which was the kitchen. I have now stayed in a few hostels which did facilitate contact and I regret to say the distinguishing factor to the other places is that they had a bar. I don't drink but I think it helps other people to loosen up.

To start, I just want to be clear that the location is wonderful. There's a market with restaurants, shops & street performers just five minutes away. Easily my favourite spot in Rome. It's a ~40 minute walk to the Colassium but a great trek, especially in the morning when there's less tourists about. Very close to the Vatican city and in general, a 15-30 minute walk away from anything you care to see. Bathrooms, spotless. Kitchen/common space was fantastic to have. Staff were incredibly nice. The only reason I'd give here a 4/5 would be the beds. I shared a dorm room with 3 sets of bunk beds. I was on the top bunk and I am a very restless sleeper (lots of tossing) and those beds are not kind for that. The bunks move quiet easily, so if you're a light sleeper I'd suggest requesting a bottom bunk or a no bunk bed room. I felt bad for my bunk mate the whole time. But can't beat the price or location!
Trip with my teen daughter

Loved this hostel in Rome. Stayed 4 nights with my 13 year old daughter. We had a room with a double bed, high ceilings, fan, small table and chair. There are many washrooms and showers. There are linens on the bed and a towel was provided at check in. There was never a line up and they always seemed clean. There is a kitchen with fridges to store food, a stove top and a microwave. There is coffee available every morning (no breakfast but some cake/bread is available). The staff are friendly and helpful. The wifi didn’t work in our rooms but there are couches in the hallway where you can sit and connect. The hostel is within easy walking distance to all the major sites and so many fantastic restaurants. The area felt safe and we often were walking back in the dark. There seems to be a mix of young and more “seasoned” travellers. Highly recommend for female travellers.
