I have been trying to cross reference their places and book direct, but of course now it's last minute. ARGH.
    Dd used them in Thailand and has used them for her entire European trip. No issues in Thailand at least.

    Thanks. I think its possible that she may be a bit more conscientious about advance planning than my DS...

    The Terminii area (train station) is rather safe and there are lots of hotels there.

    For Rome and Italy in general, one source with some interesting choices is www.monasterystays.com

    For Italy, I also use www.booking.com

    We stayed in a hostel type building a couple of minutes walk from the main Roma terminus train station for 1 nt. It would suit your DS. It was through booking.com. It was a room in an apartment with shared bathroom with the other bedroom in the apartment. We were in a very nice private apartment over Christmas but just had this room for 1 nt as we needed a place close to the station for 1nt only on another part of the same trip. The location sold it for us. Wouldn't stay there for more than 1nt though.

    We use booking.com for all our trips. I think it's one of the best accommodation sites.
