I was just happy to have a place to stay because I hadn't booked a room anywhere before getting to Roma. But that was all this place was...a bed to sleep in, and a very shaky bed at that. I asked for a towel and they gave me one but it was basically a hand towel for my shower. I... More

Good location - only 20 minute walk from Colosseum and plenty of cheap restaurants nearby. Nicely decorated - small thing but makes a difference. Good wifi in comparison to other hostels! Fully equipped kitchen (if v small). Only one shower which is v annoying as our flat had at least 15 people staying in it. Kitchen v cramped but good... More

We stayed at the hostel for four nights and given the low prices, our stay was alright. The staff is trying their best to manage the hostel and the beds are fairly clean and comfortable. The hostel is located in the very centre of Rome which makes it easy to get to all the main attractions. If you don't want... More

Don't know where to start. I was so disappointed with this hostel. Firstly, finding the hostel is a nightmare. It is on the 5th floor of an apartment block which has no signs what so ever so I was practically walking around in circles for at least half an hour. When I finally found the reception, the staff were incredibly... More

We have just arrived in Rome as the first stop on our month long Interrail trip, as students on a budget we picked this hostel with an open minded regardless of the mixed reviews you will read on this page. The staff are rude and told us that we had to remain quiet the entire time we were in the... More

Very good localization, close to Termini station and withib the walkimg distance to Forum Romanum. Rooms and bathroom were clean. Quiet and cosy atmosphere. The staff friendly and helpfull. Also elevator in the building is really awesome :) The only major fault I can pinpoimt is that the reception desk is not open 24h.

I stayed at the womens dorm, wich is a block away from via Calatafimi. I stayed in a 4 persons room. The beds were just fine, the bed linen clean and it had airconditioning. The bathroom was spacious and very clean. The shower was clean and there was hot water every time. There was even a kitchen with a fridge.... More

Firstly I would like to say thanks to the crew of Bangladeshi people who run the hostel. They are very nice and friendly. The room and the hostel at all was so clean, there is free wi-fi and everything you need. Only one thing I would change is I would add one more bthroom or make a toilet separately, because... More

This hostel was the cheapest in the city so I was expecting something somewhat sketchy, dirty, etc. Instead the room was spacious and comfortable, the staff was helpful, the bathroom was clean... it felt like a BnB kind of. Perfectly pleasant experience

I hadn't read the tripadvisor reviews before I came here, just the ones from the hostel booking site I used and I must say the reviews on tripadvisor are surprising. I overall had a great stay. It's nothing luxurious, but it is a budget hostel so if you're expecting a fancy accommodation this isn't it. That being said the beds... 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.
