I booked a room here thinking it would be a little more like a backpackers hostel, but I didn't get that vibe. I'm pretty easy going with hotels and have backpacked around the world, but ended up checking out of this place before my stay even began. The room and lobby were clean, and the man working front desk was very kind and friendly. My room did have a musty smell to it. It was a fair distance from Termini (maybe a 20 minute walk if you don't get lost and are carrying luggage). The area, San Lorenzo, is relatively safe, but I was alone and didn't get a good vibe of the area. You have to walk through a tunnel to get to Foresteria, and I did not feel safe as a solo female walking it past dark. There is better accommodation closer to Termini for only a little more, I booked this because it was a good price and had positive reviews, but I wouldn't do that again. It is worth it to pay a little more, be in a better area, and have a better room.
