It was all good, wifi was solid, people were nice, location was good- very close to Termini station- we had our own bathroom as well- we had a private room. Was very clean and we were given vouchers for free breakfast at a bar 1 second away and it was wonderful! Also had a 10% discount on a restaurant nearby,... More

Hostel was very clean and nice bathrooms. No common area so not good for socialising. Safes to keep valuables locked away. You need to check in at the laundry/Internet cafe building next door which is easy to find. Felt very safe as need three locks to get to room.

I'm very pleased with my stay at Funny Palace hostel. I went to Rome alone for 4 days and I booked my room about 3 weeks in advance. It was a little bit complicated to find the hostel though, but roman citizens were very friendly and helpful,so i managed to find it eventually) First the Funny Palace seemed quite pricey... More

I stayed at Funny palace with my partner for a duration of 3 nights. The hostel is in an excellent location around 5 minutes walk from the main station; Termini. Upon arrival we were greeted by Mabri, the hostel owner, who gave us a map with his suggested route around Rome to see everything you can imagine. He also gave... More

This place is awful!! Don't stay here. No hot water or wifi. Dirty. Reception is in a laundromat that is unlabeled, hard to find, and filthy. We booked online with credit card but upon arrival was told they only take cash. Shocked by the look of the place we checked out all the reviews only to find how awful it... More

A friend and I stayed at Funny Palace for 3 nights in Rome, we were upgraded at no charge to a double room with an ensuite bathroom because of a cancellation. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff was incredibly helpful in planning our time in Rome. Although it looks a bit sketchy in a not super populated area... More

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.
