I booked a room here last night, when I got the confirmation through I realised I had accidentally booked my room for the 19th - 23rd January instead of May which is when I am visiting. I immediately contacted the hotel by phone to let them know my mistake and was told I needed to email which I did straight... More

I have stayed in quite a few hostels and I think they have a pretty unecassarily bad reputation - but this place really felt like a "hostel". We only stayed here for two nights in Nov 2013 and it was fine, we had a place to sleep, shower and store our luggage safely so for us that was sufficient. For... More

Spent a whole week there with a friend. Firstly, it started off on the wrong foot; door not able to lock, moved to another room twice, cold shower in the other room. But they were very patient and helpful. Always greeting politely, always ready to help. No wifi on the room. Lastly, I left my Ipad at the hostel and... More

M&J was one of the best hostels I've visited in my entire Eurotrip! The staff is so friendly, willing to help, and eager to please. I was astonished at how delicious the food in the hostel's restaurant was! M&J is in such an easily accessible location, so close to the major public transportation system, that it was incredibly simple to... More

Highly recommend this hostel if you look for a reasonable budget hostel with great location near Roma Termini station. Nothing was too much to ask for. I was staying with my friend there and we were greeted friendly by the staffs, everyone were nice and very helpfull. Feel like home with them. Breakfast were great too! Definitely will stay there...

Located only few steps away from Termini station, which is also a subway crossing station. Beds didn't look like they were very much comfortable, but they were suprisingly comfy. I didn't get any bedbugs bites and nobody in my room did. The staff was just fine. When I had some questions they were always willing to help.

We booked BT Rooms Trani via venere.com, close to Termini.. When we Checked in BT Rooms, we were asked to go to this MJ Hostel Room which is Terrible. We were given the only room on the Terrace and the stair case is just narrow. If you big luggage you will have difficulty getting there. There is no guarantee of... More

Unfortunately, although I checked my bed for bed bugs, I neglected to check the unused bunk above me. That was my error. I woke up in the morning covered in both bed bugs and bed bug bites. They were on my things and in my bags. We checked out immediately and although the staff gave us a full refund, there... 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.
