There's no way these guys have a license to run a hostel. I scowered this entire 7-floor building top to bottom and couldn't find anything that said Two Ducks or Hostel. We finally called and they met up with us. It's very small. The two guys are not particularly welcoming. There's no place to store things. The room is not bad but the beds are damaged. Somebody stole my I-pod. I don't know if it was the guys at the hostel or guys in another room. But, we left our stuff for the day in the kitchen where they told us and when I came back, it was gone. Luckily on our last day, we kept the key without telling them. Otherwise, it would be impossible to retrieve our stuff because the 2 guys who run the hostel are never there. This place is not that cool. But, I guess it's also dirt cheap.

... much wildly swinging the sticks around and I think he was focusing on doing to the right moves, so that kind of ended in disaster. It wasn't quite e experience we thought it would be, but I blame a lot of it on the weather. And we did learn some cool things about gladiators. The cab we got home in was driven by a real Roma taxi driver! Gesturing at other drivers, swearing in Italian, not following any lines on the road, darting in and out of traffic. Yikes! He was ...
... they held there including:
Animal hunts, Jesters, Public executions, Re-enactments of battles, dramas based on Greek mythology and then the main event - gladiator fights (btw yes... public executions were a 'half time' entertainment where criminals were thrown into the arena and torn apart by lions - FAR OUT!).
You've probably all seen Gladiator, but seeing the re created arena (named after the sand thrown over the wooden ground hairina) was unforgettable.
... by the best espresso in Rome at Tazza d' Oro .... Made John smile. Putting on our earphones we had a Rick Steve's podcast to guide us through the Pantheon the domed temple built before Christ and has been continually worshipped in for over 1400 years...San Luigi was the next golden church we stopped in, so much elegance built in a time of poverty. Piazza Navona a square that contains shops and restaurants with local musicians and ...
... money (canned peas and corn, and lots and lots of wine, as well as an apero of water, a shot of water, and a main meal of bread), and dealt with all the
things that come up when you're stuck together for almost two weeks. We'd worked out a routine; who dealt with breakfast and who did dinner, who paid for things and who decided where to go, who asked questions and translated from Italian and who was the boss of what. ...
... shop here and there and all manner of unexpected enterprises. They are barely wide enough for the miniscule little smart cars which are prolific in Italy, and zippy little vesper motor scooters. They all zip in and out at breakneck speeds ridden by nonnas, mummas, young ladies and young men alike so you walk very very close to the walls of the buildings, which open out directly onto the street, and you hope to God you don't get your big fat hips swiped by ...
