Not bad. The staff was nice, but not the nicest I have met. The external wall of the building that holds the Hostel was in recuperation so the garden was a mess and a construction place. The window from our first room cannot be oppened, and the noise of the work started really early, so the awake was terrible for... More

Location: Easy to reach within a 5minute walk to Roma train station Accommodation: I stayed in a private room & was very happy. Clean, comfortable with private bathroom. Staff: very helpful & suggested the best way to see the sights was to walk. Provided a map & suggested route to cover all major points of interest. Experience: I loved that... More

Let me be brief. Plus points: 1. Price, very reasonable in a place like Rome 2. Location, minutes walk from the main train station Roma Termini 3. Staff, very helpful, make you feel comfortable right from the first minute Minus points: 1. The dorm I stayed in was a dungeon. It was too small for four people. 2. The bathroom... More

The sign isn't very obvious so google map it before you go. It's conveniently located 5 mins away from the main station and from lots of sights. Johnny the owner was great company while I waited for my check in at 3pm, you can leave your luggage at the hostel if you want to head out. There's cleaning so just... More

Good stay, we shared a 4 person dorm with a shared bath. Conveniently located near the termini, ATM machines, and a minimart with groceries if you need some snacks, beverages or alcohol. Wifi works well and the showers are hot. Free coffee in the morning and wine in the evening.

The staff was very welcoming and friendly; they made me feel like a family friend rather than a hostel guest. There are free snacks and wine each night, which is a great time to meet fellow travellers. This is a great hostel for solo travellers (as well as couples and families). There is a lovely outdoor garden. The Termini train... More

I only stayed 1 night, but the staff were very friendly talking to all guests at all times it seems. Very close to Roma Termini and not too far from the major attractions in Rome. If you're looking for a cheap hostel, this place isn't bad :)

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

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.
