One of the best location if you want to get around Rome without spending money for public transport. Everything you should see is nearby on walking distance, and I got really impressed of the close I was to everything. The hostel was cute and clean, and also the italian dinner was a good deal. Definitely worth. One word: comfortable. Would...

So, we stayed here for 3 nights. A brief review - mixed dorms, clean rooms, clean beds. Very friendly staff, helpful for information and directions. Hot pasta meal provided at 7 pm daily. Great if you're on a budget. If you are looking to keep cost down but are not looking for frills, book and stay here! P.s the 'terrible'...

Nice hostel. Nothing special, but everything you need to stay over for a night or two. Lockers, hot water, wifi and free pasta every night. Friendly Indian guy as a stuff.

People strill freely in/out no one askes who or where you belong. 2. tiny rooms and poor equpment. No other furniture than bunk beds - you only can spread your stuff on the floor. Common room is...

Easy (10 mins) walk from the train station made an easy transfer from the airport. The welcome we got was warm and friendly and the hostel was immaculate.

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
