4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I enjoyed myself staying here, it was pleasant and I met some really nice people. The turnover is very fast so you'll definitely be able to meet new people everyday. It is also very convenient as it is near the train station. Good place to recommend for first timers like me.

The hostel is a best place to meet people :) That is a big difference from hotels and other similarities.

Very average, dirty rooms. I came home from a night out to find half the room flooded from the heater leaking straight onto the power cord, minutes away from starting a fire. As the lockers were so small my bag was on the floor soaking wet. Staff looked tired and bored. Bar was average. WARNING! The staff will try to... More

We hadn't booked hostels in time and this place was available at a good rate (€10 a night 8-dorm). The room while clean had just one white sheet provided to cover both the duvet and the mattress. While it wasn't high season it was busy enough yet there was less atmosphere compared to other hostels that I have stayed in.... More

Dear Fionn C, Thank you for posting your opinion. There has been a period we were able to provide with one large sheet (at size of double bed)instead of two single sheets per guest. It is because of technical problem with machinery at our linen supplier. It should be resolved soon. We are sorry if you found it as a... More

The atmosphere was sort of funky. Their pub crawl starts at their place and then moves on with the staff of the hostel being vaguely but noticeably tired of their lives. There was no hot water when we were there, not an ounce. It sucked to wash yourself in freezing water and it reminded me of how i imagine a... More

Very nice staff. Didn't get bed sheets or towels, but I get that's what is to be expected at a hostel. Very party oriented. Very close to the Termini Station. There was a café just outside, a fruit seller just down the street, pub yellow just around the corner with lots of nice people and pam supermarket.

We are happy to hear you found our staff nice :) Bed sheets are included in price and it is prepared on the bed instead of handing at reception. Regarding towels, you are right. We rental it for 2 Euros in order to cover the eventual cleaning service when booked bed/s in dorm, while it is included if double/twin room.... More

The beds were comfortable, and the staff were helpful and spoke very good English. The toilets in the rooms didn't seem to be cleaned whilst we were there for 4 nights, but the shower was powerful and hot. The bar downstairs was cheap; 7 euros for a bottle of wine and 4 euro happy hour cocktails with a large choice.... More

While I stayed in Rome, my friend and I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. The entire hostel was really really cold, there isn't a warm room in the place. They leave the door open all day and don't have the heat on. At night we had to sleep in our jackets and multiple layers of socks. Also, they... 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.
