I had a good stay here. The wifi was pretty bad and only worked in the general areas of the hostel. It is not the most centrally located but about 30mins walk from most tourist sites in Rome (not a problem if you don't mind walking).

I stayed for two nights, bed was really uncomfortable but the room was really spacious, with lockers and bathroom was really clean. The staff was very accommodating and helped me out with an earlier check in. Very close to Termini! Kitchen is not available to use all day so if you can't eat their breakfast, you can't really cook until...

I stayed in a mixed room and as a solo woman traveler I felt REALLY safe and it was a great experience. I met a lot of people and the location is right near the terminal. The staff is also there 24/7 which is awesome just in case anything happens. A couple of things though breakfast and towels aren't included.

I stayed in this hostel for three nights, it was really easy to find from the main station, and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The hostel organises social events to get to know other people staying in the hostel, which were great nights out in Rome!

Wasn't sure what to expect as this was the first time that I had stayed in a hostel? Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Despite a misunderstanding on the first night, my stay was very enjoyable. Great to meet other people. Sangria nights are a good way to break the ice between people. My room was huge for six people,...

I was there for the weekend and the place is pretty nice the attention is good, the people there help you out with any doubt you may have, and the location of the hostal, close to Termini station is amazing, you can go anywhere in Rome or walk if you want to (it's 15 min away walking of the Colosseum)

Last week we went to this hostel with a large group and everything was perfect. The manager was very kind and could help us out with all our questions. All rooms were very spacious and the bath rooms were always clean. Furthermore, the location was very practical, since it is really close to the main train station. Therefore, I can...

The location was fantastic-it was in the centre of Rome and very easy to get everywhere by foot or public transit. The room was clean and facilities were also modern/clean. Nice atmosphere and nice staff. Rooms felt secure.

It's my first time as solo traveler, glad I get a smart choice! Great location-just 5 mins walk from Roma Termini and airport shuttle bus, and Rome Termini has a supermarket which easier to get what you need.

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.
