LOVED Sunshine Hostel!!! Myself and 2 friends arrived early on an overnight train from Venice, and Florinda let us check in/drop off our bags right away. Located in an apartment building close to the train station. Cozy rooms, clean bathrooms. Little backyard area. Has coffee and croissants every morning. Great Stay!!!

I stayed at Sunshine for 4 nights in October. It is cosy, central and the owner Florida looked after me and my friend. This is the perfect place to stay in central Rome, 10 minutes walking from Termini Station, very close to San Lorenzo artistic area. Highly recommended.

It was a great stay in Rome -3 nights. The rooms are very clean, the beds are confortable and there is wifi in the hostel. A disadvantage is that the bathroom is very small. The hostel is located near the train station (~10min walking) and tram line,so it can be a little noisy. The breakfast is taisty and the staff... More

Me and my friend arrived Rome almost at 9 pm. Thus, we sent an email ahead of our arrival and called upon our arrival (as it says no check in after 2 pm). Finding this place it totally irritating. The numbers on the street are not in order making it more frustrating for us to find. Although so, we managed... More

I was slightly worried after reading some of the reviews but you get exactly what you pay for. For the price you wouldn't find anything better than this so close to the centre of Rome. The hostel is clean and welcoming, it does have a rather strange choice of decoration! You get a drink and a lovely fresh pastry for... More

The hostel's offer is basic (standard rooms, shared shower, Roman style breakfast), but it was clean, comfortable, and the folks who run it are very accommodating and happy to help with things like storing luggage. It was a little bit hard to find as the road numbering system is not straightforward and there was minimal signage (just a small sign... More

I will start off with the bad to get it out of the way for there wasnt much..To start off, it took us a long time to find this hostel, probably an hour, and our other friends that were coming late it took them 3 hours to find it, and not one of the locals had heard about it before.... More

It's inside a big building so I had to wait until the opening time of the building to get inside, since I came on an early train. The owners come and open the door at 8am, so if you arrive earlier you have to make phone call, and still have to wait outside. Room is spacious and clean, however it... More

Spent a long time travelling and definitely the poorest hostel I've stayed in. Though clean, due to odd rule of 'no check in after 1400', we arrived late to a locked door and directions of how to let ourselves into the hostel. No owners around for most of the day and night. A lone young guest got denied entrance and... More

My friend and I stayed in an eight person dorm for three nights. We found sunshine hostel accommodating, and the staff really friendly! The room was comfortable and not to hot, especially being summer we thought no aircon would be horrible, but it wasn't overly warm at all. The beds are comfy and easy to sleep in, they don't make...

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.
