Great location and really helpful staff. Rooms and common area were ok but not so clean. WiFi didn't work that well in rooms at least. Own bathrooms for girls and boys. Four season was a bit better and actually cheaper.

Good location just near Stazione Termini, 24h reception with very helpful and available personnel, quite clean hotel with comfortable beds and with a lot of useful facilities, would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Rome for a short period and on a budget

Good value for money. Good location with a very sociable common room. Only disadvantaged is a low stocked kitchen. Only small plates, no bowls. Toilets dont flush twice quickly in a row so be aware. Dorms were spacious and great ensuites. Option for cheap breakfast also an advantage. 4 euros for toast, 2 pces of ham and cheese, unlimited coffee,... More

Great location near termini station, very comfortable , quite and well organized hostel. Every facility has been carefully thought about. Good breakfast for just €4. Staff may come across as a bit dry and arrogant, but are very helpfull anyway.

Really nice hostel. Beds are comfy, rooms are clean and toilets/showers clean enough. Pretty cosy atmosphere, staff is really nice and helpful. They give you advice and even made a call for me to get information from a travel agency. Lockers in rooms, bring your own padlock or buy one for 5 € from a vending machine in the luggage... More

It offers good beds, food and bathrooms for an excellent price, it worth the money i've spent. The sheets and the dorms are very clean, the bathroom too. The kitchen and the breakfast are both very good, and the staff was really helpful.

We stayed in this hostel for three nights. The location is very good, just a few minutes from the train station, you can go by foot. The city centre is farer, walking there takes approx 20-25 min but you can also go by bus etc for little money. The staff is very friendly and helpful and we met lots of... More

Short walk from Termini, which is the main bus and train terminal in Rome. Travelers from all over the world stay there. Bar crawl with 2 other hostels was a fun way to meet other travelers if youre into the party scene. Staff were very helpful with navigating tourist attractions.

This hostel was our first stop in Italy on our trip around Europe - very close to termini station which was great as we were doing interrail so it made it easy for us to get to the station with our backpacks. The area seemed a little rough, but nothing too bad. When we arrived, most of the staff were... More

This Hostel is ok, Rooms are a good size, clean and have great air-con. There are little to no facilities on offer with the exception of a common room, kitchen and vending machines. The staff seem to have done everything to avoid talking to residents, vending machines for change, beer, breakfast tickers ad toiletries. The Hostel is in a good... 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.
