For two students travelling we didn't expect much from hostel accommodation, but Lilliput had the comfiest beds and best running shower we'd had in our month travelling Europe. The owners are lovely and so helpful, rooms cleaned daily with fresh sheets, towels and food. Plus the location is right next to Termini station and so easy to walk everywhere. Totally... More

This is a mini hostel transformed from an apartment, and offers spacious rooms with well-equipped common facilities. It is advised to call the owners before arrival, because it is easy to miss and there is no reception. Breakfast is dry junk food, I did not eat it. My rating reflects two problems we faced at our arrival. The first was... More

Located close to the main station in Rome this lovely little hostel is the ground floor of a block of flats. I had emailed the owner the time of our arrival so he was waiting for us when we arrived. He was very friendly and told us how to get around, what to see. The room and shared bathroom were... More

I was in Lilliput Hostel several times and I appreciate especially the sensation of intimity that it offers. It is extremely close to the main railway station in Rome (a very important thing, if you know what means the frequent strikes in the public transport in Rome), very close to nice area of shopping, restaurants and interresting monuments (like Victor...

Se had some amazing days in this small hotel. Its very central and is close by 5-10 min from a very beautiful known church, Colosseum and Forum, and right next to The main trainstation. It is easy to get around and it's right amongst grocery and restaurants. The host on the hotel was also very helpful and gave us a... More

Shocking service. There is actually no reception, after eventually finding the place (a block of flats inside a gated complex, with a little sign on the gate amongst other signs )when you are greater with a phone number to ring. Like most travellers arriving in a new country, we did not have a cell phone to phone, but there is... More

This hostel was so great. Firstly, the location was great, just 3 minutes away from termini train station and bus station and around 15 ,minutes walk from colloseum and Romes main attractions. Secondly, the rooms are nicely decorated and finally the staff are very friendly and helpfull. I would reccomend this hostel to anyone who wants to go to rome!

Me and a friend were backpacking around Europe and found this little gem on hostelworld. Having arrived by train into Rome it was brilliant to only have to walk 5 mins to our accommodation! We had arrived early but the owner had left us a phone number to contact them on so that they could come and let us in!!... More

The location is just perfect : just a few blocks from the Termini Station, you just come from the airport and walk 2 minutes and then, you enter in a beautiful & quiet little garden. The rooms are on the first floor, easy to access. They were very clean, and the neighborhood very cool and quiet. The owner of the... 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.
