First thing you need to know about this Hostel is that it's 5 minutes from Termini. Which is great. But it's 5 minutes from Termini, meaning you're not in the heart of Rome and the neighbourhood is a tad on the sketchy side. That said, it's cheap, with a great staff, great crowd, and decent rooms, so if you're like... More

I think I'm allowed to call this hostel the worst ever, as I live in hostels every day as I travel full time. This is the FIRST time I've had to leave a hostel less than 24 hours after checking in - I had booked five nights, but that's how bad it was. The beds are the worst I've ever... More

The directions on the website regarding how to find the place were wonderful. I got off of my flight and didn't have to stop and ask for directions once. I hadn't gone to the ATM before check in so I did not have any Euros on me, but the front desk staff still let me check in provided I paid... More

This was my first time ever staying in a hostel, and overall it was pretty great! I really don't have much bad to say about this place. The rooms were clean for the most part, the wifi connection was good (although it did break at one point while we were there), there were luggage lockers, and the hostel bar was... More

I booked the hostel by reading many reviews, and this hostel is rated among top 5 hostels in Rome. However,didn't find the staff friendly. The rooms did not have proper lockers. The location is walkable from the termini station but since it is so close, the area is rundown and did not feel safe to walk around at night. The... More

Two minute walk from the train station and some nice local restaurants around. Friendly staff, but the parties the hostel host are kind of lame and they kind of dont care about quiet hours. Dont recomend the breakfast, and its a very hot place. The rooftop is the best thing from the place, where you can hang out with drinks... More

The staff are all very friendly, the rooms are clean and well kept. There's a bar and restaurant, however, what I really loved was the events that were organized; it felt like the entire hostel was a group of friends. A lot of us spent a decent amount of our stay on the rooftop patio playing games and socialising. My... 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.
