M&J Place Hostel Rome Reviews

Friendly, clean, cheap and very convenient

Right next to Roma termini, but one of the cheapest hostels in Italy, friendly and helpful staff, kitchen and luggage room, only thing lacking was a nice common room, but you shouldn't be sitting round a hostel when in Rome!

Age 29 | Australia

Bare essentials -- barely

Very cold, depressing place, its main value being cheap price and location -- short walk away from Termini. I was returning to Rome for one day before my flight so I took it, just to spend the night and get to airport in time. If you think about spending more than one night, search for other hostel. Toilets smell, you'll be hitting your head and back on the bed above, there are no lights near beds but strange iron thingies you can hit your head with. Nothing but main basics, and even those -- just about. WiFi only works in a reception, where its damnably cold for some reason, and loud. Personnel is ok-ish, pretty uninterested, they don't make up for shortcomings, but that would be a tall order indeed. Oh, and below they have very annoying, noisy eating place with personnel harassing you like maniacs. At least they only want your money.


M & J Place Hostel is good value for money; the prices are different depending on if you're staying in dorms or private rooms. The best thing about it is its location -- it's extremely easy to find and in the heart of the city.

The Location

This hostel is a very short walk away (approximately four minutes) from Termini Train Station and not far from many attractions. You can take public transportation or simply walk everywhere from the hostel into the city.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorms are spacious and relatively clean. Everybody has a card key to enter the dorms, for which you have to pay a deposit. The bunk beds are not very comfortable, though, because the mattresses are covered with plastic -- which we guess is a good protection against bedbugs and keeps them safely clean, but, at the same time, trying to sleep on the rustling noise of the plastic isn't the best option.

There are different common bathrooms with showers, which, again, are relatively clean. There are no problems with hot water available twenty-four hours, which is good. Towels are available for rent by paying an additional small fee.

Common Spaces

The reception area is full of helpful leaflets and free maps of Rome, the staff are very friendly and helpful, if you have any questions to ask they will be more than happy to answer them. There aren't lockers in the dorms -- if you have small things to lock like your passport there are small safety boxes in the reception that are free to use. If you want to, you can leave bigger valuables (like laptops) with the reception staff, who will look after them. There is free Wi-Fi but only in the sitting area by the reception. Unfortunately, there isn't a functional elevator, only stairs.

There is a kitchen that can be used but only for limited hours during the day (not in the morning). The breakfast isn't included in the price of the room, but there is a bar/restaurant at the ground floor that serves breakfast, drinks, and other food at an additional fee.


Despite having a great location, this hostel is only ideal for short stops of a day (or at maximum, two). In fact because there is bar downstairs, it's quite noisy and makes sleeping a bit difficult (depending on which room you are in).

One of the worst of my trip

Perhaps it is Rome, because it is very hard to get anything decent for a cheap price. The hostel is not too expensive, but in no particular order; they charge 50cents for printing, only 2 computers, their breakfast is rubbish and it means you have to find something decent to eat around Termini which is no easy task, I was given the wrong directions to Trastevere and received barely an apology, my dorm had no curtain on the window, the security locks are poor quality, the music downstairs, vibrates the room at night, I had a guy check-in at 11.30pm in my room and then woke up with some guy who looked like he was off the street or an employee, the mattresses still have the plastic on them, the staff are rude (not all of them though) and there is no lift and you have to climb up quite a few floors. There is a free drink but only if you have their awful bar wine. The kitchen is ok though and the cleaners do clean. Overall, one of the worst but if you are desperate and do not ask them for directions, it is bearable.

The worst Hostel I have ever stayed in

Just came back from a weekend there. The place is a complete rack. Dirty, smelly, and has such a low water-pressure that it is impossible to take a decent shower. It is also very noisy mainly due to the bar downstairs (which is owned by the hostel). If that is not enough, the owner, Mario, is a nasty piece of work. When we complained about some of the things mentioned above, he basically told us to f*** of.

In short, think twice before staying there. There are better and cheaper, hostels in Rome.



I just stayed here three nights, and it wasn't all that bad. It wasn't great either, but I do think it should get more than one star. The location really is the best thing about it. Breakfast was a nice choice of different sweets, cereals, juices, and coffee. Staff was average. There are two internet stations, you get ten minutes free every day. The common area is really small and didn't appeal to me to hang out. But I met nice people in the dorms. Bathrooms are small and old. Be prepared to walk up many steps!


Honestly, staff generally unfriendly (specially the young arrogant guy) and way too uptight about its hostel reservation policy. We were six people and had to pay for eight. The beds sat empty when two other friends where not able to make it (Checked in at 6 p.m., there was still plenty of time to rent out the beds to other guests). Rooms are green and not much to them, but I guess that's what you could expect in a hostel. They accept no credit cards. During our entire stay (two nights) there was a bucket right in front of our door catching the water from the dripping ceiling. Almost fell over it going to the bathroom at night. The breakfast is served somewhere outside the hostel so you have to go all the way down three floors and out of the hostel to get your morning coffee. We skipped it. I guess what put me off most with this place was the attitude at the front desk. He was just too eager to get our money and explain his refined hostel policy to us. It just didn't feel right and gave a bad taste of the whole stay at M&J's. The only favorable thing about this place, if I have to choose one, would be is its ok location. If you have a reservation and check in after 6 p.m., be prepared, you will lose your bed at this place! Good luck if you have to pick this one!


This hostel is very close to termini station. But is only that. This is the worse hostel that I've ever been. So, I hope that everybody has one idea before the reservation. the bathrooms are dirty. the hostel doesn't have internet (as well as said in the reservation). the staff is ok. doesn't have lift and the hotel is on fourth floor. the breakfast is served in a bar downstairs, but isn't only simple. Is only terrible, awful.

So, if you want to stay close to termini station is good, but is only this thing that is nice.
