Close to the sea, well connected to public transport, clean rooms, great wifi connection, nice and friendly staff.
The building is even better inside than outside: you can even watch the sea from your window. Best quality/price ratio for a hostel in Rome. Recommended especially for Not only a hostel, but a family... you come as a client, you go out as a friend! ??

Nice people and better looking....
Mainentrance is not from beachfront, it is from other side of the building. Building looks quite ruffy from outside but hostel is nice inside and very very nice people working there.
Breakfast is mostly sugarstuff, but coffeis quite ok.
Our room was big, clean and nice, bathroom ensuite.
From backdoor you just cross the street and you are at a free beach.
Restaurants, pizzeria, ATM and everything else you need is close to Litus.
I could definately stay here next timme I go to Ostia.

A big hostel with seaside loca....
My husband and I (middle aged),have stayed in many hostels around the world,and this one rates high.An old imposing building on the exterior,yet airy and spacious with high ceilings and archways,on the inside.Also lots of bold,colourful artwork,make the place cheery.
We could park our car securely in the grounds,there is a laundry,cafe,cinema,games room and a lift.The location is excellent,
literally right across the road from the beach.The traffic is busy and noisy however. Our private room (no.201)was large with an ensuite,desk,TV and a brilliant view across to the beach.Linens and towels were provided and the breakfast was quite good and plentiful too.Considering this is a hostel,we had a very comfortable stay at a budget price.Rome is easily accessible by train too.

I went here in august with 9 friends. You pay per bed instead of rooms so we took a lot of space for ourselves. We stayed at the 4 rooms on the top floor which all had an incredible view. It's a great place if you want to combine a beach vacation with a city trip.

So it's coming to the end of July 2016 and me and my mate are rounding up a just under 4 week trip through Europe. Our last destination is Rome and we think ''we'll head to the coast, spend a few days on the beach, that way we're close to the airport, it'll be a lovely end to a really fantastic trip''. Well… Let me begin by stating for the record that this was by no means the 'worst' hostel we stayed in, oh no. The place is big, huge in fact, relatively clean, with spacious rooms etc. However, make no mistake, this is NOT a traveller's hostel. At best I can describe this hostel as… Italy's answer to Butlins. Mobbed with nothing but locals who looked down on us, were rude, inconsiderate and don't even get me going on sharing a room with them. So lets start with the building shall we, as stated it's huge, however, it also looks like you've just walked onto the set of 'The Shining'. We quickly deduced, an abandoned school/warehouse/mental institution with a so called 'Ensuite' room actually transpiring to be a room with a bathroom 20 metres down the hall to which only you had the key. Oh joy. So we wake in our hospital ward of a room, on our first morning here and my only thought is 'we're in Italy, the location has to be great right?'. Wrong. Apparently the coast of Rome is the land that, the once great empire, forgot to make any use of at all. To add to this the future generations don't seem to have given 2 s**ts either. Now I grew up in London, trust me, I know rough areas, I went to a local comprehensive that, by the time I was in my 3rd year, had the local met office based next door for 'convenience'. However, never have I ever seen such a dump of a place. Again, not a tourist in sight, it was 72 hours of funny looks, being told in loud, angry Italian to move off of grey, dingy beaches and pushed out of cues for food. Me and my friend didn't even feel comfortable staying out past 7 o clock and spent most of our time sat in the lobby of the hostel (there's no wifi in the rooms) connecting and reconnecting to a mediocre internet.
Needless to say, I'll certainly never be returning here, or perhaps even Italy, ever again.
Final note: There are rats in the walls and ceilings of the hostel, but hey, at least they're making someone, other than their own, feel welcome.
