I booked into Blue Hostel late on the night of my stay, not knowing what to expect. I was greeted courteously by Ercole at the door and ushered upstairs. The building interior is old and underwhelming, but as soon as we entered one of the wings the ambience became lovely. The room itself was charming, spacious, welcoming, so much more... More

I found this hotel via Facebook and was immediately attracted to the well-designed and informative website. Ercole, the hotel owner, was very prompt in replying to my emails before our departure. He gave us plenty of useful information beforehand that helped. Location: Ideal for getting around. Very close to the Colosseum and Roman Forum and within easy walking distance of... More

This hostel was amazing. The staff go out of their way to make sure you have the best time in Rome, Alessandro took the time to talk us through the best places to go and we chose to use the hostel's map rather than the one in our travel guide. We had originally booked to stay in a double room,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. I'll start off by saying that it is more like a hotel than a hostel! The rooms are spacious, stunning, and so romantic with exposed wood ceilings and a private bathroom. They even have the rooms cleaned everyday while you are gone. We arrived to Rome at Roma Termini... More

Could not think of a better place to stay in Rome. Fantastic value for money with awesome rooms. Great location to get around most of the major sights in Rome. Ercole (the proprietor) will go out of his way to accommodate you. A fantastic touch is that he has developed his own map of Rome that lists his favourite places... More

A brief three night stay in Rome made easier with the welcoming and attentive approach of our host Ercole. A 5 minute walk from Roma Termini train station, greeted at the door by Ercole who efficiently checked us in and gave us the essential tips and maps. A quaint little establishmnent - a little quirky, but outstanding for value. Clean,... More

This place is one of my favourite places to stay when I come through Roma. Nestled right off of Maria Maggiore, it's location to Termini is ideal and it's a perfect, quiet respite from the noise and pollution of the city. Ercole (the proprietor) is a lovely man who works hard to accommodate his guests, even going so far once... More

The Blue Hostel stay reaveled to be just the perfect choice for my 6 year old daughter and me. Extremely clean and tidy, we enjoyed so much walking from the hotel to many different locations in Rome. We could enjoy an extremely nice and tasteful decoration while feeling like living like another Roman family with stairs to climb - which... More
