Lonely Planet review
Forty-six rooms are tucked into every labyrinthine corner of an old mansion stuffed full of Roman-style statuary and baroque art. An established backpacker spot, it can get noisy, but the rooms are clean, the water hot; and the bedspreads, incredibly shiny. A roof deck shrouded in greenery serves as a breakfast cafe (for an extra S4) and a nice spot to check email using free wi-fi.
