Lonely Planet review
The long-established M&J is a hostel-cum-hotel run by two well-travelled brothers. There are a number of brightly painted dorms (up to 10 people), one of which is female-only and some of which have their own bathrooms. The doubles are more upmarket, decorated in a chic, Zen style, and have air-con (dorms don’t). There’s 24-hour reception and a kitchen. The owners operate the Living Room bar downstairs, where breakfast is served as well as cheap meals, and which opens late. You can get deals if you book online. There’s also wi-fi.
Our independent authors have visited M&J Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Rome.
