It is a cheap, very basic hotel/hostel, but it have what you need on Holiday in Rome, when you spend all day out anyway. The staff is very friendly eventhough we only meet them at check in and out....

It was nice staying here. The "hotel" is very close to metro and termini station. Also a few staps to coloseum and forum romanum. Room is very small but it is enough if you just stay there for the night-leaving in the morning and coming back in night. Staff is very helpful altough we met them only during check in/out,... More

Rooms are fine to stay for few nights with a affordable budget. The service is bad the breakfast is generally a coffee/ tea with a croissant. In our case we Got old ones with bacteria on it. No wifi. We recommend if you really don't have any other options, On and the building is really quite old :(

I've stayed at this place 6 times, and it has been great each time. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. Don't expect a4 star hotel when you book here, but for its price, this is a very good place to stay (both hotel and hostel). I would recommend to stay at the hotel though... More

We stayed here for just one night but it was awful! The hostel is not near the center of anything, not even the train station. I know in the map it looks close but you have to walk a lot! The neighborhood was not very nice, just a bunch of asian cloth stores, not a lot of restaurants. Then there... More

The hostel is almost in the city center, so it was really comfortable to get to it in every time of the day. Relation Quality vs Price is good. The most I liked the receptionist, he showed all sightseenings on the map, suggest how to get to them. It is good place for student or persons who would like to... More

I dont even know where to start with this hostel. First of all the stairs.. its like five floors worth the stairs, so if you have any kind of problem or heavy luggage, avoid it. Our room was kind a nice, but that was it. The "reception" was this guy's room/kitchen, in which he kept playing videogame 24/7. And the... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend during September for 5 nights, although the place was close to Termini and was not too expensive I would not stay there again. We had to pay in Cash, which when you are on a budget is not good, as we were planning on paying for all our hotels on our credit card. The room... More

There are two separate floors for the hostel portion and the hotel portion of Hostel Starlight. This review is only for the hostel. The location is close to the termini, and while it is convenient, the neighborhood is rundown and has a population of homeless people loitering about near the station. The building is old, complete with rickety elevator. Dorm... 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.
