If you’re traveling to Rome soon and I looking for an affordable, conveniently located and interesting place to stay, Comics Guesthouse is your best bet!
I stumbled about this gold mine while doing my research on hostels for my trip to Rome.
What made me pick this place, out of so many other options, was the fact that it was themed from comics and cartoons, which I very much love!
I had never seen a hostel like this before, and the fact that they defined such a fun theme for their decor was simply amazing!
Rest assured, this place works well for people traveling solo, in couple or even for families! While I was there, there were several families who had come to spend a few nights.
This hostel had the perfect location, and I couldn’t and skills for more. The closest station is Lepanto (only a 3 mns walk) and from there you’re 15 mns away from Campo de Fiori, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the St Peters square (including the basilica) and the Vatican museums. This was simply the perfect location for me.
There are also a few cafes and supermarkets in the vicinity, and the hostel has a kitchen and free supplies that you can use (coffee, tea, sugar, drinks, pasta,etc).
Location: viale Giulio Cesare 38 00192 Roma, 00192 Roma, Italy.
Cost: less than 20 euros/night
What I loved: The cartoon theme, the perfect location and the amazing staff! There are also a lot of cafes and shopping places in the vicinity.
What they could improve on: the location is not very obvious and the sign at front of the building is pretty small. I had to stop at the bakery nearby to ask for directions.
Otherwise, I loved the place. The only reason I checked out earlier was because my plans changed, but I stayed at another amazing hostel, the Generator Home, and you might want to check it out here!
