Close to everything. Late Check-In was possible. Really friendly and kind staff. Room was nice and good for few nights. Only minus is that we didn't know that we have to pay extra for the late Check-In. Really good an peaceful place to sleep.

My stay here was not very good. The rooms are tiny and the beds practicly on top of each other. The ensuite bathrooms are very loud so you get woken up anytime one of your roommates used a bathroom in the middle of the night. The walls are also pretty thin so you can hear everything that happens in the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in the single room. Can't complain at all. Comfy, clean bed. Bathroom clean. Located 5 mins walk from the train station, in amongst little supermarkets and nice restaurants. Every attraction well within walking distance. Would recommend to the sightseer who's just looking for a place to rest his/her head

Overall it's a good place if you're looking to put your head down for the night. It's easy to find and is close to termini. The rooms and bathrooms were always clean and the staff were helpful. It's not the best place if you're looking for other backpackers but overall it's good value for money.

If you need a basic, no frills, comfortable, cheap place to stay in Rome, the Cressy is for you. An easy five minute walk from Termini, lots of restaurants and markets nearby, a pleasant staff, comfortable bed, free wifi--the Cressy offers everything you need.

Cressy is located very close to Termini, making it a great spot to start your adventures in Rome. The rooms were clean, maintained daily, and are more like hotel rooms than a hostel dormitory. The beds were fairly comfy, and Cressy is high enough above the street that the noise is very tolerable. The bathrooms are shared, but were kept... More

The hostel was very easy to find and well located. The staff was very friendly.

Short walk from train station, the basic room was clean and tidy, shared toilet was in the corridor.

This is a very basic "hotel". Its more of a hostel. limited space and shared washrooms. But at the price, it serves its purpose very well. the location is great, very close to the main train station (Roma termini). We even walked to the coliseum from here (approx. 45min). there are sites to see in between (like the ministry of... 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.
