First of all, our host Alessandro was just genuinely lovely, super helpful in providing recommendations for places to eat and made us feel right at home from the very start. The room itself was gorgeous and clean, and the hostel was in a perfect location for us to easily access the parts of Rome that we wanted to see as first time visitors. I know where I'll be staying next time I visit!

Property's Favorite Review
Blue Hostel was excellent. Ercole provided us with everything we needed, and nothing we didn't. Everything was carefully thought out for his guests. Every bit of detail was clear and concise from check out times to room information. Upon arrival, he took his time and thoroughly explained the map with things to do, etc. The room itself was cozy and very homey. Loved every bit of it from the personal touches of (what I think to be old family) photos (forgot to ask) to the juliette balcony to the bathroom tile. Location was also great, as we were close to everything within walking distance. Fantastic experience. Grazie, Ercole.

Alessandro is the reason to stay here. Such a kind and accommodating person. The location is great. The rooms are very nice and very quiet. There is no lift and I have a bad knee. No problem! Alessandro carried my luggage up for me. He offered great suggestions for places to eat and visit. Terrific visit.

The host Ercole was so incredibly gracious. His recommendations were spot on. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. It had thoughtful touches like a fridge with water, Nespresso machine, extra blankets, etc. The location was excellent. So easy to get to the train station & walk to major sites. We loved it, would highly recommend it and would definitely stay again.

My stay at The Blue Hostel was absolutely perfect! It is a quiet little getaway that gives you the true feeling of the life in Roma! Ercole goes above and beyond being helpful in every way making everything easy and helping you find the local food spots :) The building is a close walk from the central station making it easy to get to from the airport. The room is very comfortable and unlike your average hostel. The pillows are soft and bed is comfy, while your own private shower is everything! Definitely going to stay here again!

My son and I stayed at the BlueHostel last week and it was a lovely place to stay. We felt safe and it was a 20 minute walk to most of the main sites. Ercole was so nice and even helped carry my luggage to our room. He made a lot of great recommendations. We will definitely be staying at the BlueHostel on our next visit to Rome. Thank you for making us feel at home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Hostel while we were in Rome. The location was great, with Roma Termini, restaurants and major attractions (Colusseum, Spanish Steps) within walking distance. Ercole was a great host; friendly, accommodating and full of suggestions for places to go and where to eat.

The Blue Hostel is one of the best places I've ever stayed abroad. A colleague recommended it to me, I booked it for August and I'm so glad I did. The host was incredibly friendly, communication was great and there was no question he wouldn't answer. The map they provide is excellent, with recommendations for restaurants and places to visit in Rome, tips on how to avoid long lines and general advice on moving around Rome. The room looked great, was very clean and had a fridge full of roman tap water (very good!) as well as a coffee machine with tabs and an AC Unit. The hostel is a few streets away from Roma Termini, the central railway station and right between a few nice restaurants, bistros and bakeries, a lot of options for a good breakfast (the host recommended Panella, we went there every morning) and everything from fine dining to a slice of pizza to take away. If you're looking for a safe haven to return to after a strenuous day exploring everything Rome has to offer, there is no better place for it.

We stayed in the Trapeze Suite (one bed apartment) during August. The apartment is beautifully furnished and the attention to decor is very stylish. Also importantly the air-conditioning was excellent. As a family of four our children used the sofa bed which was great and having the extra living space was perfect for us. It was very spacious, extremely comfortable, and beautifully clean. The location of the apartment is amazing. It is close to the station which was great for us as we travelled by train and within very easy walking distance of the Colosseum. In fact we walked everywhere from the apartment. The hosts are extremely helpful and gave us amazing tips and recommendations for places to eat out which we really appreciated. Thank you so much! We would 100% recommend the Blue Hostel if visiting Rome and would definitely stay here again if we return. I only wished we could have stayed longer as I loved it so much.

Attentive, friendly and very helpful host Alessandro. Beautifully appointed room with many lovely and historic touches (original features with modern comforts). Well positioned close to Santa Maria Maggiore, a few minutes walk to Roma Termini and walking distance to many sites eg. Colosseum, Trevi Fountain etc. Highly Recommended.
