A group of us lost 150 Euros to this scam of a hostel, please do not fall into this trap! A traumatic experience that I would not wish upon anyone. Top of my head the horrors of staying here: bed bugs, dirty sheets (blood stains, hair and even shoe prints), shower is filled with grim and faeces found stuck to... More

When it comes to getting around Rome, the train system is cheap and efficient, thats why you want to stay in this area. Hostel Beautiful is right next to the central train station of Rome and you can be at any of the attractions within minutes from there. There are some great little restaurants in the streets surrounding Hostel Beautiful... More

We stayed at Hotel Beauty for 2 nights. Upon walking upstairs, we were immediately greeted by a cheerful lady named Tiziana who was super helpful with a great understanding of Rome. She showed us all of the best places to go, times and where to buy tickets so we would not have had to wait in line. The location is... More

People, DO NOT GO IN HERE. The place is a bed bug nest. The first night, couple of people were already bitten with huge bite marks, and the owner blamed them for bringing the bed bugs from another place. Check the reviews, there are a lot of bed bugs in this place. The bathrooms on the first floor were disgusting,... More

Very close to the train station, 4 minutes by walking. The area is safe with lots of hotels around. The hostel has good conditions. The room is very nice with private bathroom. The zone of socializing is friendly and cozy. The staff was helpful and friendly.

The Receptionists (Khan) made me feel at home before entering the hostel. He explained to me how to find the most interesting places of the city. Overall it was... More

Stayed in a private bedroom with own bathroom, I suppose it was live able ,it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. However I wouldn't say it's in the best location , it is close to Roma termini which is perfect but for sightseeing and good restaurants were hard to find in the area. Also we had a school... More

No frills. This ain't the Hilton but for €10 per night, this place rocks! It's clean, great staff, and you meet the most fun and most charming travellers. Cleanliness is A1, and I am a clean freak who takes 2-3 showers a day! The floors are mopped EVERY day, bed sheets are brand new when you get there, mattresses are... 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.
