Great place to stay in Rome. Very accommodating and helpful staff, they let us change our room right when we arrived, and gave us a map the first day. No wifi in the rooms, but there is wifi in the lobby. We had a private room, and it was very big and clean. I would recommend this place to anyone... More

The day we arrive the girl in the reception couldn't tell us at what hour we could enter our room, she answered us in a cynical way telling us "you are going to do sightseeing right? Come in a couple of hours" The room wouldn't even lock, it didn't even have a fan, I would got up in the middle... More

On arriving at the hostel after a crazy journey the welcoming staff were so friendly and helpful. M&J is very close to Termini station so great for taking buses and trains, or even walking to the main monuments. The place is always sociable but never loud. The sitting area has vending machines, computers, air conditioning, a kitchen, books, information and... More

Helpful staff but no lift and WiFi doesn't reach rooms. Shower temperature temperamental and often too hot to use. Very hot room and no blind or curtain for the window. The pub crawl was a joke and not worth €20.

Worst place ever. One of the staff was extremely rude and racist. I told him that i found his racial commenta towards me offensive and he still didnt stop. I have been backpacking for 2 years and this was the worst place i stayed at.

No Wi-Fi in the dorms - the reception told us this was because of the age of the building (1700s) so installation of more access points was impossible. Reception was amazing when it came to tourist information, but the common room itself is relatively small and crowded. No power points near the beds is also slightly annoying but manageable.

Only thing good about these rooms is the bathroom itself. The beds are old and creeky! Bed sheets and pillow cases are fresh with a white sheet provided. However the duvet itself is dirty and left me with rashes. Also, having no wifi in the rooms is a struggle.

I can't say enough great things about the guy that runs it. I was there trying to get documents for a duel citizenship and was having a problem with the language barrier. He made all the calls to figure out where I needed to go and what I needed. He set the whole trip up. As for the hotel I... More

I had booked a bed in a dorm of 10 so arriving to find only 5 beds in the room seemed like an upgrade, though the room was quite warm (expected given the glorious weather during my stay). No airconditioning or fan but we could open the balcony door (however there was some noise from the bar downstairs and smell... 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.
