The area is known for graffiti murals and bars/nightclubs. Even though some of the buildings are run down i felt quite safe there. You can reach it by the metro station Piramide. It has also some good restaurants.

The area displays some of the best street art Rome has to offer and I highly recommend a short graffiti hunt around. There is just a small region where one can spot the art I attach in my photo which I witnessed with my own...More

Perhaps this just applies to the particular area of Ostiense we stayed in, but it seemed like there was a lot more going on at night compared to daytime. And I don't mean that in a positive way. Dodgy people drinking on street corners, doing...More

A perfect place to hang out in the evening and at night. You can find a good choice of restaurants, bars, clubs and ice-cream shops. Lively atmosphere.

Ostiense is a very dynamic neighbourhood. I was born and raised here and watched the whole area changing constantly. It ends where Roma Sud (Southern Rome) begins and has a privileged position: 2 underground stations away from the Colosseum, 20 mins walk to Circo Massimo...More

Hello! We felt completely safe when visiting Ostiense area but it was day time. The hotel you chose seems a nice one and at just 300m from Piramide station. Personally I found the area to be a very interesting one but bare... More
