We stayed at this property. Before going few reviews on this hostel scared us. But we are very happy with the location (max. 5 mins from Roma Termini), value for money and hospitality of the staff. On registration the staff explain the important places to see in Rome based on the duration of stay of each guest. Tips on transport... More

A hostel located in different departments of buildings. The beds are bad, very old. Bathrooms are insufficient. No common areas. It is located in a degraded and dirty area, it is not pleasant to walk but well connected. The best ticket you get for breakfast.

Good price and just two minutes away from main station Termini, walking distance to many touristic atractions. Mabri gave us a map and drew routings for each day of our stay which saved us a lot of time. Complimentary bottle of wine was also a very nice gesture. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. The only minus was a bathroom... More

We booked a double room. Easy walking distance from the train station and we were welcomed after our long haul flight in the laundromat come Internet cafe check in point. We were given a map and tips on catching public transport and places to eat. Our room was two buildings up from this and we had keys to access it... More

My son and I stayed here, and had a great experience. We booked a twin room (two single beds), with private bath and shower (there are other options available, including more hostel-esque accommodations with shared rooms and bathroom facilities). Our room was clean and comfortable, with air conditioning that maintained a comfortable temperature in the heat of Rome in August.... More

We were initially taken aback by the check in area. It was a small laundry shop. However, the moment we entered, the owner welcomed us very pleasantly and began to offer us tips on how to get around and places to visit. This really helped out with our planning. We were also given a bottle of wine and an upgrade... More

I spent a week in Rome staying at Funny Palace and was really happy with my time at the hostel, and of course in the city! The team; Eric, Mabri and everyone else were really accommodating and helpful! :) I was actually meant to change room several times as I was staying there 7 nights, but Eric kindly arranged it...

A rock solid hostel in a very central part of Rome right near the main train station which give easy access to the airport, the metro and buses all over the city. The highlight for me was the large wooden doors at the entrance; such a stately feel. The staff were incredibly helpful and did everything they could to help... 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.
