This hostel was okay. I enjoyed the look of it from the outside. There also an old elevator, the ones where you have to shut both the gates...enjoyed using that! At check-in, they were brutish and came off rude. Might be because they don't know too much English. Was upset a little because they wanted payment first (understandable), but we...

Don't stay here! They have bed bugs and the place is really dirty. I booked September 23-28 here and I could only stay one night because it was really gross and I got bitten by bed bugs. When I arrived the person who greeted me was drunk as well and they don't speak very good english. They also didn't give...

we booked Astro but were moved to Cherry hostel across the street. Poor English of the staff, charged us with Roman local tax (2 euros per person per night!). Luckily we stayed only one night and it was close to Termini (10 min walk). Room very hot, no air conditioning but clean sheets and towels.

I was on a school trip to Rome. When we arrived at Astro Hostel, there was nobody to help us. We had to wait for half an hour. After that, we were told that they overbooked, we were sent to a flat on 5-high. The persons who showed us the rooms said he had nothing to do with this and...

Do NOT stay here!!!! They try to charge you a hostel tax fee, which does NOT exist in Rome for HOSTELS! It exists for Bed and Breakfasts, campsites, nicer hotels, but NOT for hostels! They will charge you 2 more euros every night for every person who stays there. Which is clearly a scam! They WILL overbook, and if that...

We spent 7 nights there. The staff, although nice, do not speak English so could not be of much assistance. The place is dirty.

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.
