Blue Hostel is situated in a great location, close to Termini and the metro, but also a comfortable walking distance from many of the key sites and Romes centre. The area has a nice mix of traditonal Italian restaurants and fine dining options, plus the bonus of the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore a few seconds away. Our room was... More

We had a great stay in Blue Hostel. The appartement was perfect for the 4 of us. Having breakfast in Panella, walking through the park to the Colloseum, and having great meals in the restaurants our hosts proposed. A place you would like to keep a hidden secret. Clean, spacious, stylish , everything you need without being posh. Not being... More

If it's a toss up between a hotel and a nice hostel- stay here for sure (coming from a couple that doesn't stay in hostels often). Book well in advance and feel confident that you will be very happy with the room. Hard to find at first as it seems to be in an old apartment building. No elevator but... More

The Blue Hostel is perfect for a place to stay in Rome! The rooms are really homely and comfortable, and the hostel is in a great location - easily within walking distance from all the main attractions. Upon arrival, Ercole gave us a personalised map of Rome with lots of recommendations of where to eat etc and this was so... More

Simple , clean apartments, pretty close to all the main attractions. Staff very helpful. Watch out for the stairs. Good idea to take advantage of taxi offer as airport a reasonable distance away. Enjoy

Ercole and Alessandro were extremely accommodating to us during our five-night stay. The room was charming, and the location was superb. Blue Hostel's location made it easy for us to hop from great restaurant to great bar in the Monti district, and with a landmark like Santa Maria Maggiore, finding our way home was never difficult. Highly Recommended!

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
