Stayed here for a week and a half. Place can be tricky to find, the main entrance to check in is not where you stay. I was given a key and a crappy map to find the actual hostel room location. Walked a couple blocks to find the place with no idea if what I was headed to was right.... More

We stayed in one of the private rooms that required use of a shared bathroom. (The hotel/hostel is in the same building as Hotel des Artistes.) The shared bathroom was always clean (although the shower stall is very small), and we never had to wait to use them. We were there on the weekend, so there was some noise late... More

My brother and I rent out out own room, which was nice. In the close proximity were 2 bathrooms and 2 showers. Everything was clean and we'll take cared for. Internet was super slow and often times non-existant but for the most part it's in a great area and was a nice place to go back to and rest. Not... More

This place is less than average! The photos of lush headboards, beautiful draped curtains and orchids is a far stretch from what it actually is! We started at this beautiful reception area, only to be diverted 2 blocks away to our actual hostel. We were then unfortunately given the room at the front entrance on the street side next to...

The best thing from this hostel is the location, very close to the main station in Rome. People that I shared the room with were quiet and respectful, I almost didn't notice them. Bathrooms are shared, generally I found them available and clean. They are also very spacious. The internet is very bad and they charge me 12 euros for... More

Stayed at the hostel for 5 nights over the New Year period. The room had 3 beds and room was tidied up and kept clean daily. Quite a comfortable stay. It helped that the other 2 beds were unoccupied on my last 2 nights, so I had the whole room for myself. General condition of the room was well maintained.... More

Just okay hotel for the historic city. I was on a two day visit to the famous attractions of the city and I found this place to be budget friendly. It good enough for a simple night's sleep, bath etc.,

If you're staying in the hostel, beware! The shared bathrooms are awful - very dirty, you can actually see the floors haven't been cleaned for ages. The smell was also terrible. One of the showers didn't have any place to hang the clothes. The pictures they show in the website are probably from the hotel, and not from the hostel... More

Do not go to this place if you want to experience a hostel. It is just a set of four rooms rented by a hotel to give it out. No reception, no body to talk around. Not at all good for backpackers. If you wish to stay lonely in your room and do nothing, you can stay here. they also... 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.
