The hostel is close to the central bus/rail station. It's a place to stay in for transit, which means one or two nights. I think it might not be nice staying in that place for longer. It's too small and the people are not that much friendly. Anyway, Rome is the worse city for accommodation that I've been in all... More

Its a great hostel, it's small but in my experience people are nice, in the reception people explain everything. Clean, cool. You should stay here. Free breakfasts, Internet, computers, maps, near to a metro station, 3 minutes walking and there's too much restaurants near

This hostel was great value for money with an excellent location and nice dorms. My favourite things about it was the cleanliness and the location, within walking distance from the main attractions if you don't mind walking 20-30 minutes. The only downs for me were the wifi - which would not work in my room - and the lack of... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in Nov 2014 with two friends. Pros: We had free pasta dinner on our first night (Thursday) which was nice. Having a kitchen to cook in (very small though). Rooms were clean. Close walking distance to Colosseum, Turini, metro. (also G. Fassi - the best gelato!) Breakfast is free. Cons: front-desk staff gave us the... More

Stayed here in November 2014 and it was an amazing stay. The location is really good as it is a walking distance to a metro station. The room was nice and clean and well ventilated. Would love to be back of course. Manuel.

Been here in August, with a friend, two days. Unfortunately, our rooms where in a different place ( I didn't noticed that while booking) but the lady at reception (very nice, like all staff) gave us for the second night two rooms in the same palace! Place is very clean, and position is perfect. Also, you can have pasta some... More

Don't stay here. Rome is awesome but this hostel sucks. During my stay I was bitten at least 25 times by bed bugs and was horrified when I woke in the middle of the night to scratching. I went to the front desk (which was sleeping on the couch out front) to tell them about my bites and the lady... More

We found this hostel to be really well located if you want to go and see the sights of rome, breakfast is included and the free pasta on Tuesday and Thursday makes it perfect for Interailing. The room was quite small but very clean. Overall a good place to stay for its price

We were in Rome for a few days in 2013. Ciak Hostel was our choice after looking through hostelworld. As a couple traveling along with a friend we chose the room with 4 beds, but when we got there we were assigned to a room with 6 beds without any further explanation (this was my biggest disappointment, because there were...

Of all the hostels I stayed in during my month's backpacking in Europe, Ciak ranks among the top. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice and clean, the bathroom was great, and free breakfast in the morning was delicious! Will definitely visit again if I make it back to Rome.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
