The staff wad very friendly and helpful. The rooms were average. Bathrooms were average, could do better cleaning and the showers were tiny. They have this odd rule that you have to be out of the rom from 10 to 3 everyday. This was not a huge issue most days but on the one day we wanted to sleep in... More

The hostel is very well located, close to Termini station, which makes possible to take any metro or train easly. Moreover, isn't far from the main attractions and there are many nearby restaurants and markets. The front desk staff is very attentive and try to help providing maps and information, the most important: and all speak a good English, which... More

The hostel is located near Termini station, the main one in the city, which makes really easy to use bus or metro to go everywhere. Moreover, the staff is very friendly and helped me a lot with some tips about Rome. The rooms, however, need a refurbishment. There is no individual plugs or lights near the bed and no privacy....

We stayed in a private room which is located just around the corner from the hostel rooms, the rooms were clean and the shared bathroom was kept very clean by the very friendly staff. The location was great with the train station just around the corner and a few great restaurants and pizzerias nearby.

This hostel is conveniently located near Termini Station. Everything was great except perhaps for the dude at the reception who was working on the day shift. He needs to be more friendly and accommodating to guests.

This hostel has great social vibes, encourgaed by the free breakfast and complimentary wine and evening snacks. So, of course, I met some great travelling companions! The colosseum is definitely within walking distance. The Vatican is a few metro stops. A great point from which to get to know Rome. And all the staff were perfect, really helpful with any... More

Only a 5 minute walk from Termini station when arriving to the city. The rooms were very clean and had comfortable beds. There was often a wait for the showers because each floor had two shared bathrooms. Within walking distance to the Colosseum. Free breakfast at the restaurant across the street and it had a dinner deal for hostel guests... More

A great hostel choice! It's within walking distance to most sights and close to the bus station for hop on-hop off tours. The hostel is a beautiful building with good accommodations. Rooms very clean. Good breakfast/snack room with wine bar. I felt safe in the hostel as well as the general area. While staying here, my sister fell down the... 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.
