Stayed at the hostel for 5 nights over the New Year period. The room had 3 beds and room was tidied up and kept clean daily. Quite a comfortable stay. It helped that the other 2 beds were unoccupied on my last 2 nights, so I had the whole room for myself. General condition of the room was well maintained.... More

Just okay hotel for the historic city. I was on a two day visit to the famous attractions of the city and I found this place to be budget friendly. It good enough for a simple night's sleep, bath etc.,

If you're staying in the hostel, beware! The shared bathrooms are awful - very dirty, you can actually see the floors haven't been cleaned for ages. The smell was also terrible. One of the showers didn't have any place to hang the clothes. The pictures they show in the website are probably from the hotel, and not from the hostel... More

Very large comfortable and elegant rooms. May not include free breakfast or wifi yet one of our favourite places. You have no time to stay in doors during your visit to Rome. So much to see and do. Vatican + Fontana Trevi + Colosseum + Spanish steps, I could go on. Everything was breathtaking. Must visit once 👍♥️

I slept here for 3 nights. Staff guys were nice and helpful. Bed was comfortable and the room was OK. This hostel is just for blocks away from Termini -Rome train and bus central station- so you can go anywhere from there. Not the best hostel to meet people, sometimes I felt it pretty lonely!

The hotel is very close to Termini station thru via vicenza and right next to castro pretorio metro station. Wifi was horrible even on the 5floor and you have to buy in the rooms. Breakfast very pricy at €8. Rooms are quite spacious and beds comfortable. Even the toilets were quite clean during my stay. Pietro the receptionist was very... More

The room we stayed in, was perfect for us. It was a reasonable size with twin beds, a mirror and a wardrobe and dressing table. The location of this hostel was incredible. It was just a short walk to Termini metro line and train station and Castro Pretorio metro. The neighbourhood was quiet enough however we did hear some noise... More

Carlito's Way Hotel and Hostel is located in perfect location. Its very close to bus, metro stations and the central railway station. Its also based in posh and quiet area, close to the American Embassy and expensive hotels. What we really liked about the hostel was the lounge where you could meet other travelers from around the word, well equipped... 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.
