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

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.

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.
