I was only in Rome for one night, unfortunately, but my experience at Freedom Traveller was fantastic. The room was clean and orderly. The staff was simply fantastic. I really enjoyed talking with them and getting tips for traveling around the city. Without them I am not sure how I would have gotten around, and surely would have missed things.... More

We recently stayed a night at the Freedom Traveller, a hostel near Termini Station and found this to be a good spot for budget-minded travellers and backpackers needing a place near the station. Reservation was made via booking.com, check-in went smoothly and we found staff there very helpful and informative. Paid our night stay upon arrival, luggage storage available for... More

It's a pretty nice place, clean with comfy beds. It provides free Wi-Fi, although in our room the signal wasn't great, it also had Wi-Fi in the common areas. It includes breakfast, and even though it's not great, it's enough for you to not have to buy it outside (they'll give you different kinds of bread and pastries and coffee... More

Free wine! Good location close to the station , friendly staff, bad breakfast, common room shuts at 11 but the staff allows you to be in the common area if you're quiet , prices are fair and will visit again

As I have stayed there one night it was the absolute maximum, but I guess it all depends on your roommates, not on the service. The people running the hotel are extremely nice and helpful, they coocked us pasta, which was super nice and the location is really around the corner of Termini station. Overall it was a nice place... More

It's my second time in Rome, and my second time in this Hostel. I really recomend to all Travellers stay here. Very friendly and polite. The rooms are clean and organized, and each one have a reliable locker. Only the breakfast could be improved.

Keep expectations relatively low and you won't be disappointed. Originally we had booked a 3 bed private room but we changed it to a 4 bed private room by emailing the hostel (communications very good). We arrived and were told our room was in a separate building -turned out to be a couple of streets away in a different hotel.... More

Stayed in a 4 bed dormitory during November 2013. It is close to Termini on Via Gaeta. But it is difficult to find the place with only a small label mentioning the hotel name stuck on the door. Many people on Via Gaeta with whom I enquired had no idea about Freedom Traveller. Finally I found it thanks to the... More

My expectations was a bit worse than was reality. I had to find a place where to stay in the very last moment and wasn't sure how it would be to share room with other three, unknown girls. But, I have to admit that my experience was amazing! I arrived in this place the service explained everything correctly that you... More

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

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.
