We loved our stay at the Blue Hostel. We stayed in the Trapezio Apartment, which was spacious and comfortable for a group of four. It is so close to everything, including the train station, and the staff was incredibly helpful. They also provided a map with a bunch of their restaurant and gelato recommendations, and we loved EVERYWHERE they recommended.... More

We would definitely stay at Blue Hostel again if we went back to Rome. The Blue Hostel is conveniently situated near Termini Station and in a nice neighbourhood. The room was clean, quiet and tastefully decorated with a comfortable bed. Staff helped my friend and I get oriented to Rome by providing a very useful map as well as excellent... More

I was blown away by my stay at the Blue Hostel. Attention to detail is at every level - all rooms are en-suite,fitted with high timber framed ceilings and parquet floors, with a serene view over a small private courtyard, which makes it absurdly quiet and tranquil for a noisy part of town. They all come complete with LCD TV,... More

We stayed 1 night after long haul before catching the train to Naples with our 2 young adult sons. A great night - lovely authentic rooms with good aircon. Great location both for exploring Rome and the train station. No self service or food available but not a problem with lots on the doorstep. The staff gave great recommendations. Service... More

Perfect place to start my long journey across Europe. Went there 3 weeks ago and the room was great, with a very comfortable bed and clean. Staff was really helpful as well and recommended some good places to see. I recommend this place. :-)

Our stay at Blue Hostel was a pleasant one. Ercole was a great host, and greeted us with a map and extremely helpful suggestions that saved us time and allowed for a great visit in Rome. The room was comfortable, clean, and had great air conditioning as well as a small refrigerator, coffee maker, and TV. There were many stairs... More

We stayed at the Blue Hostel for the last leg of our trip to visit our daughter and son-in-law in Italy, and we thought Blue Hostel was excellent in all respects. Both Ercole and Andrea were friendly, and accessible. including being available at 0330 to carry our bags down three flights of stairs so we could make an early flight... More

We stayed in the Trapezio suite apartment for 4 nights. Great location, perfect if you are arriving/departing by train, there is also an express train from Termini to the airport. Colluseum is just a 10 minute walk away, everywhere else is walkable but we did use the metro a couple of times to give us a head start (Vatican City... More

My husband and I kicked off our Italian honeymoon at the Blue Hostel, for which we could not have been happier. It was easy to get to and incredibly central, the staff were second to none and spoke perfect English (which was great as our Italian was a bit rusty), and the rooms were comfortable and spacious. The cost of... 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.
