There is so much to do in Rome, one can't expect to stay all cooped in a hostel! My friend and I stayed at the Pop Inn for a couple of nights in the winter. Although there were no heaters, they provided many blankets or warmth. There were no working showers on our side of the building so we would have to leave our floor and go down the hall to the next one. The bathrooms were big and clean and one was always free.

There is no shared kitchen but there is one shared common room. They also have two computers with Internet but it's expensive to use.

The location of the Pop Inn was fantastic. It was right by the train station so it was perfect because there were subways going to all parts of Rome, trains going to all parts of Italy, and there is also a $14 train ride to the airport.

Booked PopInn with less than 12 hours notice late at night and made clear booking conditional on wifi included, as implied on website. Wifi was extra charge so withdrew booking immediately and stayed elsewhere. They still charged one night even though they could have used goodwill in the circumstances. Not a good ad for either price or customer service. Stay elsewhere.

My first ever trip to Rome was last September and I stayed at Pop Inn. I had the pleasure of staying in the African themed room and it was incredibly clean, comfortable temperature (it was very hot at this time of year) and the location was perfect. It's literally opposite the Rome Termini station! They also give you a free croissant and coffee in the morning staying there. Also the WiFi is very fast and easy to use. Only downside is they charge a deposit to use towels. The staff weren't great though, I was really sick one of the nights and needed to get to a hospital and they were reluctant to help me book a taxi/give me directions. But to be fair I don't speak Italian and they didn't speak good English so maybe it was a language barrier thing.

Room Tip: Rooms that are private are next to a bathroom usually.

Negative:
- Uncomfortable beds. I understand that one can't expect hotel beds in a hostel, but these beds were really small and made lots of noise when turning in it.
- Not so clean. Though the showers and sheets seemed to be clean, the floor in our dorm was really dirty.
- On the website it says: '15 Minutes FREE Internet per person per day at an Internet point' but according to the guy at the reception this was not true.
- To get in the building you have to ring the bell downstairs. If you have a room close to the reception (which I had) you hear the bell ringing the whole night.

Positive:
- Location. It's close to Termini trainstation, which is good if you have to go to the airport. On the other hand, the neighbourhood is not so nice and it's like 20 minutes walk from the major sights (colloseum etc.)
- Showers were clean.
- 24 hours reception. There is always someone there.

Room Tip: I would opt for a room that's not too close to the reception, because of the ringing of the door bell.
