I really enjoyed my stay here. The sheets they gave you were very clean. I couldn't spot a single dirty part! They also gave you very large sheets and blankets. I think they're meant for double beds so it was really warm. I slept in a 6 bed room with no bunk beds. All the beds were standalone so it... More

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst in Rome,great location to be honest with an amazing cafe opposite the hostel!. The rooms were ok! Bunk beds were very squeaky,showers were not great at all! Had to let it run for about 10 minutes to get hot water and it honestly only lasted about 10 seconds! Wi-fi only worked in reception which... More

The power went out twice during my two night stay, the first time I was in the shower, and had to wait 10 minutes in the dark in the bathroom because I couldn't see anything and was covered in soap. The bathroom in my dorm only had cold water and the toilet was completely detached from the floor. The hostel... More

Alright, let's start with the good, They had a great location, nice and close to Termini. Staff were somewhat helpful although I did find the 10$ deposit on the room key to be silly. Regardless, that's it. The cons: Damp, Dark and Dingy. There is mold in the constantly wet washrooms, hair litters the floors. Nothing to dry your hands... More

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

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.
