This place kicked ass too. It was really small...I think that like I dunno 16 people can stay there or something so everyone who DID stay there got really close. The staff there were awesome and it just had a super relaxed, fun vibe. We all just sat around this big main table where we ate/drank the night away. Cant reccommend this place enough. Sometimes when too many people show up wanting a room, they'll let you sleep on the roof or whereever you can find a spot to sleep for like 5 bucks.

Did they have smaller dorms (like 6 bed ones) or just a couple of larger rooms? We're looking for something in Rome, but we need something where we can get a private room for the bunch of us. Sounds like we'd fill them up pretty quick, though...

Its three small rooms that sleep like 3 bunk beds each. AWESOME place!! They have a "spooning" rate where people can sleep two to a bad for the price of one. haha.

Two thumbs up from me!

Sounds like an awesome place. I've been to Rome before, but stayed in a classy hotel because it was on a school trip, but that was so long ago. I need to go back and this place sounds cool.
