Slept in a 4 bed dorm that was fairly comfortable, but the AC was broken meaning that there was a constant dripping throughout the night, Despite me telling the staff that it was broken and that we could not sleep in the room, nothing was done. The dripping was so bad that I ended up having to leave the Hostel... More

I had a great time staying here; my room was ready early, everything was clean and comfortable, and the lockers are huge and even have hangers. The water in the shower was hot and a good pressure. The free breakfast was great to have before heading out for the day and the staff are super friendly and helpful. They also... More

I stayed at the Legends hostel last week with a group of 13 other students, and the hostel was absolutely perfect for us. I had a private room so can't review the shared rooms, but from what I saw they were of a really good standard! The hostel isn't too hard to find (you have to press a button to... More

We stayed 4 nights in rome in the mixed room. It is a little hard to find but once there it's a great location as only 5 minute walk from the train station. the rooms were generally clean. There was free breakfast in the morning and the free wine in the evening was a nice touch!

Thought that the eating room is bigger than that.. Free breakfast every morning.. Anyway, there is a lockout period from 10am to 3pm and you have to get out from your room during that time.. It's not that easy to find, keep your eyes open, it's on the second floor above that bar something.. Room is good, toilet is good,... More

Hostel is well located (especially if getting the shuttle bus from either airport), situated a five minute walk from Rome's central transport hub. The hostel itself, despite being difficult to find is spacious with a large kitchen, dining area and balcony and the rooms are comfortable and clean. For these reasons I would certainly recommend this hostel! The staff also... More

Overall a very nice hostel in a fabulous location. And it thankfully had a/c during the hot summer. Unfortunately, there was no kitchen, which was a hassle. And there was no laundry, we had to go to a laundromat. Overall, comfortable and safe and clean. I would stay there again.

Legend Hostel has good transport links as it is only 5 minutes away from Termini station (Coach, Metro and direct train to Fiumicino Airport). This hostel is particularly cheap during the Winter season (only 27 euros for two nights). The rooms are reasonably spacious fitted with a bunk bed (firm mattress), cupboard, large mirror and a table. This particularly convenient... 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.
