Hotel positano was the first hostel we stayed in on a 7 month european trip and it was one of the worst hostels though also one of the cheapest. The shower doors were broken and the floor dirty. Dorm rooms looked like a hospital, but sheets were clean and beds relatively comfortable. Fun backpackers bar across the road called Yellow.... More

location is good, close to the station. this was the 1st hostel I have stayed at hat did not have a kitchen so if you are staying a while you, you can't really prepare any meals. I didn't find the place very clean and there were bed bugs, they argued the fact of this not being possible. I requested a... More

I got lucky because my gf and I were in the shared room and only on the final day did two other people move in. The room was decent, but the facilities such as the shower/toilet were really dirty. Not really any toilet paper/soap around which isn't nice, and going up and down that elevator for any sign of internet... More

I was originally planning to stay at the "Yellow Hostel" that is in the same building as Hotel Positano. However, upon arrival I discovered that Yellow Hostel was fully booked. When I asked them for a recommendation, they directed me towards Hotel Positano which is in the same building. I'm so glad this happened, because I ended up with much... More

We stayed here one night and then moved across the road to a different hostel. We booked a 5 person dorm. We arrived at about 10.30pm tired from travels, checked in and went upstairs. The place is old, dirty and the room numbers are like bits of paper with a number on. We arent fussy and only wanted a clean... More

Maybe it is because we got a cheaper room up on the top floor... But this place was horrible! Can't understand why it's even classed as a hotel...no towels, room was dirty... Shudder to look at the state of the pillows under the pillow cases. Bed was lumpy and very old. Bathroom was the worst part- very dirty and scummy,... More

Great place to sleep, small rooms with about 4 people, breezt and comfy. The storage lock up for your bags is terrible but the room was great. Overall positive stay. But the clerk up front wasn't the friendliest and the bathroom needed a lot of work.

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.
