Wow! We don't even know where to start. Both of us travel frequently and have each been to a lot of hostels alone and together (100+) but this is by far one of the best! We were greeted by Jonny who set us up with a map for the next three days, marking restaurants (check out Andrea's!), prices, tips and... More

I stayed at Funny Palace last week and would definitely recommend it as it is run by people who go the extra mile to make sure you have a good stay. I loved the whole system - checking in at the launderette with it's computer screens,maps and chatter, and being given vouchers for an evening meal and breakfast. The local... More

Loved not having bunks, instead individual beds. bathroom clean and towels provided. Lilly, who met us on arrival was friendly and gave us many suggestions for our 2 day stay. We were able to store our bags after check out too which was fabulous. Breakfast was good and just around the corner. No large lockers for bags just a safe... More

Okay, this place is really close to the main train station so I called and asked if they had a "double" room for my wife and I. The very friendly Eritrean woman running the place said they did so we walked over there. There's no sign saying "funny palace" or anything like that… Just some black dude standing in front... More

I was really looking forward to staying in this place, but did not make it past the door! Recently went to Rome on a sporting trip. My teammates and I all booked separately and at different times, as some of us where traveling with family members to make a holiday out of it. I personally was travelling with my sister,... More

I've spent a few days in Rome and Funny Palace Hostel was absolutely good choice. The room was clean, towels and liens were provided. Eric (the owner) is very helpful. What is also important hostel is located in walking distance from Termini Station and it's relatively cheap.

We were a little surprised when we got there because we thought we had booked 4 nights in a hostels but it turns out Funny Place isn't one. The check-in was funny all right. The manager of the place also seems to be the manager of a laundromat, where you actually check in before he takes you to your room.... More

Location was great, right behind Termini station. Otherwise: - sanity and cleaness were questionable (judging also from the smelly room were we left our luggage) -breakfast was a coffee and a croissant (if you advertise offering breakfast and charge for it, then at least you should provide something decent) -No wifi in the rooms -Too much noise -Too expensive for...

The people in charge are very helpful, the rooms are very comfortable and updated, the free breakfast is a very nice way to start the day. It is very close to the metro, the busses, and the train station. Highly recommended!

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.
