VERY easy to find, truly a five minute walk from the train station. Within walking distance of several delicious restaurants. Staff was very helpful and friendly, but if you want to do any tours try and book them ahead of time.

I stayed here in July with two of my sisters. It was our first time traveling outside the country on our own, and we had never stayed in hostels before. Even though it's been almost a year since I've stayed here, I wanted to come back and reiterate what a great experience it was, especially for three young American girls.... More

LOCATION = TOP! It is one of the best thing when you travel! And after a long trip it is a good feeling when they welcome you with a very good check in!. Boys at the reception where amazing! They would even tell you what you want to know before you can ask it! I guess that's experience. They just... More

BED BUGS!!!!! I got over 60 bites on my body on my first night there. I had to relocate to a different room at 3am and then changed hostels first thing in the morning. I was refunded for the nights I didn't stay, but they should have given me a complete refund since they gave me bed bugs! Bad business... More

I stayed here from 8/5/15-11/5/15. I originally booked for two beds but my friend couldn't come. They allowed for me to cancel the other bed free of charge when I arrived. When I arrived I was greeted by staff who were very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm and it was fine. Air conditioned, comfy... More

I have stayed there in March 2015 for a week, when in Rome. It was a walk in booking. The great thing about the place is the location, really convenient close to Termini station. Unfortunatelly there is not much care of the cleanliness of the corners behind the beds, and fridge - loads of dust and cobwebs. AC unit wasnt... More

We stayed in this hostel for 2 days. We flew Mum-AUH-fco with atalia. We didn't got our checkin luggage. Excellent support was provided by Nas in getting our bags back. Reception team is good out here and speak fluent english.

The good side of this hotel was its strategic location. It is within walking distance from Roma Termini. The staff; some were nice and some were not so nice. The room was not so clean. I may consider some other place to stay should I ever visit Rome again.

This hostel is not so clean. When I went to bed, the duvet smelled like sweat, it seems they never air them or change them. They cleaned the room except on Sundays. On top of that, the room's bathroom did not have a floor division between the shower and the rest of the bathroom, just a curtain, when you showered... More

Not my favourite hostel I've stayed in! Fantastically located and nice staff but it has the feel that it hasn't been decorated for 25 years (although still clean). The breakfast is very average but OK value for money being in a city. WIFI barely worked and first morning we had to have a cold shower. For price you pay, one... 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.
