Its like an apartment that you have your own room and share a bathroom with the people that are in the other room (probably a couple). The room is small but it was always clean and warm (in the case of winter). The staff were very helpful, always trying to help, we have a breakfast ticket that give us the... More

Not really a hostel because you are only sharing with maybe one other couple in the apartment. More like a B&B or self-contained apartment that your sharing. No front desk - you meet up with owner at the other accommodation place and they'll take you there. You go up a very small elevator to the top floor of a tall... 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.
