Very nice, newly refurbished apartments! Clean and spacious. I would definitely stay there again! Excellent experience Ercole is super friendly and know the city very well. His custom made map is the bomb. No reason looking for accommodation anywhere else

Outstanding accommodation, perfectly matched to the online description. Staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful, outlining key landmarks and features of the neighbourhood which made my stay idyllic. The room itself was spotless and the bed very comfortable. I would highly recommend this hostel for comfort, privacy, relaxation and excellent proximity to key landmarks within walking distance - ideal for... More

I recently traveled to Rome solo and found Blue Hostel to be ideal for my needs. If you are looking for a clean comfortable room that offers a quiet nights sleep. If you want to be within walking distance of a number of different sites and great places to eat. If value is important to you without having to sacrifice... More

Blue Hostel is a room inside of an old convent. It was done up nice and had a very home-y feel. It is nestled in the heart of Rome near the Saint Maria Magiorie church. Hercule, the owner, is incredibly friendly and helpful. He has his own special map, and his suggestions for what to visit, when to visit, and... More

I was a bit nervous with the "hostel" title but this location was private and comfortable. We were looking for an inexpensive option while in Rome and this was a great find. The location was wonderful and they were very friendly and helpful.

It was a bit confusing to find, but I was greeted by friendly staff and the check in process was very simple. I was given a detailed description of sites in Rome as well as recommended restaurants and shops. The room itself was spacious and very clean, unlimited free tea and coffee and very quiet. The bed was comfortable and... More

This is a clean, spacious, private hostel/hotel. It is a bit more expensive than a hostel but honestly you get what you pay for and do yourself a favour as MBC1234 writes, do not sacrifice comfort on your trip. Paying a little extra for a good night's sleep is worth it. I have already recommended it to people who have... More

Stayed for three nights on short notice. 4 people in two twin rooms for one night and the "suite" for two nights which was a double in one room and a large fold out sofa in another. Also had a kitchen. Cost 330'euros . Very reasonable given: 3 minutes walk to termini and metro. Easy access to all major attractions... More

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.
