It's a bit difficult to find. However, the owners/managers are so kind and helpful. Two of the nights I was there they cooked meals for everyone there - at no charge !!! Not large, but very personal, and close to Termini Station. I would certainly stay there again

My boyfriend, his daughter and I stayed at this hostel early February 17. The place is nice and Anna is the best host. At times it can be a little loud when you plan on resting and the smell of food can be a little overwhelming. Central location close to Rome's main train station.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was spectacular. They upgraded us from a 5-bed dorm to a private room FOR FREE, gave us free dinner twice, and free breakfast every day. About 5 minutes from Termini station, and easy to get to lots of tourist sites via metro or by walking. Our only problem was the spotty internet,...

The location of the hostel is very good, 5 minutes from Termini Station (most shuttle buses from the airports will get you here). It's easy to get by foot anywhere - 15 minutes to Colosseum, 15 minutes to Borghese Galleries. From Termini you can take the bus or the metro train too. The hostel is run by a sweet couple...

It is not a "real" hostel so to say (I mean not like a big place with a lot of dorms and rooms, where you can meet people and party etc.), but it is just nice little rooms, where you can sleep, take a shower, store your stuff and just do all basic things you need. Hostel has perfect location...

Hostel was clean and comfortable. We stayed in a cosy private double room which was small but suited our needs perfectly. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and were always cleaning. Upon check in, we were shown the all the points of interest around the city, which were all walkable distances away. Lovely pastries were provided every day for breakfast...

I stayed in this hostel for 4 days and really enjoyed it. It is in a great location, walking distance from the Rome termini, which made it super easy to get to all the sights in Rome. The hostel is in a cute old building and is clean with enough bathrooms that I rarely had to wait to use one....

Stayed here for 6 nights in a 5 bed dorm and loved it! The place is sociable, clean, has everything you could possibly need and the staff are lovely! They gave us a map and pointed out all of the best places and even cooked us dinner one night. Would recommend to anyone planning a trip to Rome 🇮🇹

My friend booked our stay in Roman Holidays but I'm so glad he did! The staff were very friendly and upon arrival gave us a map and marked with pen some brilliant sights, restaurants and places to visit whilst we were there! The room itself was spotless, the beds weren't the comfiest in the world but it didn't matter at...

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.

“It helps to check in early so you can get the best beds. It wasn't an issue for me but the bathroom/toilet is a bit cramped for 6 people but if you can use it at not so busy times you can take your time without being rushed. Definitely will recommend and I hope their prices will stay affordable. Thank you to the staff for making my stay memorable. Hostels are never known for their top-notch quality; this place broke the mold.”
