speaking of free internet...Ive used AOL now for 8 months...FREE OF CHARGE :D :D about 8 months ago my free trial ended and I had given them an old card number that at the time was being closed (switched banks to the one I work for) and I logged on to find the AOL welcome screen locked up, it wouldnt let me do anything unless I entered a new card number, it wouldnt even let me exit! I thought about it for a few minutes and then tried to open up internet explorer...still no luck! Last but not least I double clicked the little yahoo messenger icon and up came messenger login, I logged on and used the search to pull up yahoo.com, guess what?? IT WORKED! Ive done this since with no problems. The only flaw is when Im done I have to hit control, alt, delete to get out of AOL because its locked, but it still works like a charm.


Im not suggesting we all do this...Im just adding my two pence to the free internet topic :D

I've heard M & J is fun, but I must give props to Pop Inn. The staff was just the best! Comprised mostly of cute girls (take note, fellers), they all were helpful and fun (like serving us wine!!!). Plus free internet, even though the computers were a tad slow. The common room was a great place where I met tons of people and got caught up on my MTV Italia. Outside of the place, it's a little loud, as it's next to the train station. Be sure to bring earplugs!!!!

M&J's is pretty awesome. I worked there for a week. I had the best time overall at M&J's when I was in Rome. Go there!

It was a cool hostel, I stayed there last summer. A really nice kitchen facility and nice couches. Good rooms too, with big windows and big beds. The owners are kind of assholes though, they nearly kicked me and my travelpartners out for something I cant remember. Probably

Stayed at Yellow Hostel, was a little more expensive, but really nice. One of my good friends here in London used to work there and told me to go... The staff was funny, sarcastic, and helpful... Free breakfast was really good; eggs, toast, juice, museli, everything. The pub crawl is a MUST. I will stay there again. For sure.
