This place is disgusting - the website falsely advertised their hostel and the management photos on this page are not real. I had to pay a 10 euro deposit for my key card and once inside my room, there was a weird, nasty vibe to it. I came back and another dude was there and he smoked in the room...

Super friendly staff with good clean rooms. Mario is a great host and knows Rome inside out. He made our trip fun and easy to get around the city. Croissants almost around the clock for 1 euro and a vending machine loaded with water and beer. Grazie Mario and crew!!!

Okay, beds creaky, toilets stinky! But it's a great location, easy to find off the bus, walk to everything you need, staff are friendly, discount in 'front room' restaurant below which was the best we had eaten in Rome for €7 Was pricey €52 for 2 nights each. We got there quite late too! It has a kitchen and fridge!...

For around £25 a night it was a good price for a good location in Rome. There wasn't a very hostel vibe as the common area wasn't very comfy; just some tables and fold out chairs. The wifi was only in this area not the rooms. The staff were friendly but kept to themselves a bit. Less of a hostel...

Staff are super lovely and helpful. There's a good vibe at the hostel - definitely very easy to make friends. Our room was also clean and the beds comfortable, my only complaint being that the bathroom was slightly grim and a bit cramped.

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...

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...

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...

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.

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.
