The location was the primary attraction and from that aspect it was ideal. The room was reasonably basic but not unexpectedly so. There was a very nice restaurant next door that hostel customers get discounted breakfasts and evening meals. We didn't try the bar because we had friends staying at the Yellow hostel around the corner and drank there. Having... More

Nice clean rooms, great atmosphere, super close location to everything you need. Really close to the Yellow hostel too, which has an even better nightlife. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Only criticism was the wifi was patchy in my room! No kitchen but you can use the sister hostels…. wasnt a deal breaker for me! Would definitely reccommend :)

The street leading from the Termini to the hostel looks terribly seedy and dirty. However, once past that it all is very safe. The hostel is less than five minutes from the Metro so this is enormously convenient. There are also loads of reasonably priced food outlets in the vicinity of the hostel. I stayed in a private room for... More

This may have been one of the worst hostels I've stayed. The location was good, close to the main train station. But that was about it. There is no Kitchen, which is a big deal in my opinion. There is no common room to hang out and meet other travelers, just a rather small bar. And my room was in... More

The hostel is very nice, and very big also. The rooms are very comfortable, although on mine, there was water on all the floor because of some failure with the bath. But as soon as I complained in reception, they fixed the problem. There is no breakfast room inside, and they do not have coffee or tea for the guests.... More

Location is great, right tin the centre of Rome, you can go everywhere very easily. But the staff is what makes a great hostel! They were all very friendly, helpful and made me feel at home! By...

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. More like a hotel than a hostel. Myself and my friends booked a three bed private room and it did not disappoint. We had a modern clean room with a private ensure. Safes as TV in the room also. Access to the rooftop garden where we could relax on the sun... More

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in a four bed female only room with a bathroom. It was very clean which was very imporant to us. They say that the location is a little dangerous but if you are aware of your surroundings, there is no problem. The hostel was very easy to find and in a... More

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.
