The best thing of it is that the position is really the best. You take a shuttle bus from the airport, hop off it, cross the road and you arrived.It could not be better than this. The ladies at the reception are very welcoming, they helped us out a lot around the city, the information was precious and saved us a lot of time and even money. We paid 40 euro for a double room, the value is really great. The room is clean and comfortable. Thank you.

Very good position
We arrived to Rome with my friends having no reservation and we found this place. There were 5 of us, they offered us a five-bed-room for 100 euro. We took it. Free wi-fi, we could stay out late having no trouble to come back. They saved us money keeping the luggage. On our first trip we payed a fortune for the luggage deposit at Termini station. Much appreciated! Also it is nice to meet English speaking people, it was quite hard during our trip in Italy!

Best value for your money
If you only need a safe, clean and warm (or cool ) place to sleep this is the best value around that area.
I had my flight from FCO the next day so I found it very convenient because it's right across from the train station and the bus to the airport. So it's safe because you literally only need to cross the street from the train station building.
It is not a 4 star and they don't charge you like a 4 star.
So I don't understand what people expect from a place which really only charges you the most fair amount of money for a clean room with clean sheets and towels, hot water and heating (it's actually the same device as the AC so I suppose it works very well in the summer doing the opposite job) that you can increase or decrease as you please. I stayed there on on a very very cold night and I was very comfortable. The next day you take a hot shower and you go about your day.
The gentlemen at the reception were very nice and there s always someone at night. I'll definitely stay here again. People whining for not finding this and that should just be willing to fork out extra money and go sleep at a 3 or 4 star. This isn't one. You get what you paid for but what you get to me was more than enough.

What a lovely tour. It all started when we were approached by a street vendor touting how great the tour is. We were a bit apprehensive at first but decided to check out the office. The fee for the tour was very reasonable (41€) for two persons after some negotiations and we skipped the long line. The tour guide was fantastic. Her knowledge of Vatican History was amazing. I was captivated by the different areas we went into and the history surrounding them.
A must if you want to come away with useful knowledge.

Me and my boyfriend already had a ticket for the Vatican (sixtine chapel & museum) and the employee of the Caput Mundi told us we NEEDED to pay to visit the Basilica San Pietro... They told us we needed to pay another fee. So we bought their tour for much money to be able to go there. The guide was cool but the tour wasn't long and we weren't looking at anything we were just running all over the place. If I had to do it again I wouldn't ever pay again for this. (Plus we didnt even "need" this to go in the Basilica). You could tell us the truth at least even if you wanna sell.
