How can I cancel my booking?

Do you take walk-ins?
If you arrive at our front door without a booking, then we'll do our very best to find you a bed or a room. However, we can't guarantee that there will be room for you. The best way to guaranteed a booking is to do so by reserving a bed or a room by booking online here.

How do I make a group booking?
We have a dedicated staff member who will take care of all your group needs, if you are travelling as a group of ten ore more people. Just get in touch at ciao@theromehello.com.

Will my friends and I all be in the same room?
We do our very best to make sure you and your friends are all placed in the same room. However, we also have private doubles, twins, triples, and quads that you can book per room if you want to be certain that you will be in the same room as your friends.

Can I bring children under 16 years of age?
You can indeed! We welcome youngsters in private bookings. Children under 16 must be booked in private rooms or the whole party must take over a whole dorm. Teenagers aged 16 and 17 can be booked into shared dorms as long as they’re with someone aged 18 or over.

What’s the difference between a twin room and a double room?
A twin room is a room that has one bunk bed and a double room is a room that has one double bed.

Are the dormitories mixed?
Dorms are mixed unless you book a ‘Girls Only’ dorm. We don’t have boys only dorms

What time is check in and check out?
Check in is from 2:00 pm. Our reception is open 24/7, so if you’re arriving late, just get in touch so we know you’re coming! If you arrive before 2:00pm, feel free to pop your bag in the luggage room and get out and explore the city! If you’re leaving any valuables, make sure to rent a secure locker.

Is the guest kitchen open 24 hours?
Want to make a budget friendly lunch or dinner? The self-catering kitchen is open 24 hours.

A pillow, duvet and fresh bedding awaits you! Towels are provided in private rooms but you’ll need to bring your own or rent one from Reception for a small fee if you’re staying in a dorm.

Are there hairdryers  in the rooms?
Yes there are hairdryers in all rooms.

Where can I leave my things?
If you arrive before 2.00pm, you can pop your bag in the lockers ( free of charge ) and head out and explore the city! You can do the same on the day you check out if you’re not leaving the city until later on.

Can I bring alcohol into the hostel?
You are more than welcome to bring wine into the common areas of the hostel to share with new friends, just please don't take alcohol into the shared rooms. If you'd like to party, feel free to head to our bar: The Barrel!

You bet! Reception is open 24/7, so there’s always someone available if you have any issues or need a question answered. Access to all the hostels is by key code only – so keep it safe! Our staff are on duty every night and CCTV cameras are up and running in all communal areas and corridors.

Are we pet friendly?
To be honest, we would love to meet your furry friends! But unfortunately, we've found that bringing pets into our hostel can make quite a commotion. For that reason, we ask that you leave your dogs, cats, and any other domesticated (or wild) friends at home. But feel free to bring us pictures!

Do we charge city tax?
No, we don't charge city tax.

Is breakfast included?
We serve a luxurious breakfast buffet every morning that provides a selection of hot eggs, bacon, and sausages, as well as fresh fruit drinks, cold cuts of meat and cheese, and cereals. The breakfast isn't included in the price of your bed or room, but it will be €2 cheaper if you reserve it online at the same time as your booking!
