I stayed at Funny Palace for three nights and it truly was a very nice place. First off, I must admit I am a hotel snob. When traveling with my family, I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world. Thus, I was a bit unnerved about staying in a hostel for the first time with a... More

Let me say that I am writing this on my own accord and no one has asked me to. I just say this because of other reviews on the site. The hostel is conveniently located not far from Rome Termini and upon booking it I was given clear instructions on how to find it. It is a bit funny sitting... More

My 2 friends and I booked for 3 nights. We ended up staying only one. One of the workers, very rudely, at about midnight banged on the door and demanded that it could not be locked. At no time did they inform us that it could not. He was in an incoherent fury and stayed in the living room area... More

I went to Rome in April that i stayed 2 days with my friend. Hostel was perfect. (%100 safe) Staff were polite and friendly. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Also location was very good. You can go every where just on foot. If i go to Rome for second time, i'll stay there again. Thanks for everything Jonny. We... More

I had a nice stay here. The best part was the location. It was right by Termini, making it easy to get around the city. The staff was very helpful with public transportation and attraction recommendations. The room was nice, although the beds felt a bit close. Security consisted of an automatically locking door to the flats themselves, and then... More

A few days in Rome we booked again with Funny Place, the location is perfect for the termini and walking the many great places in Rome. As ever the reception was warm and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for Eric, Marabi and Johnny who run the establishment. If we had a quire about how to get to places or... More

You're a bit worried when you discover that the reception is located in a shabby looking lavatory/internet point, but it turns out the rooms, apparently converted flats, are located in another building. The rooms are okay, although the beds are a bit too close to each other. The bathroom is functional and there is aa safe. Breakfast is just a... More

I stayed at Funny Palace with 5 friends - we were visiting Rome for a conference at Sapienza University (15/20 mins walk away). The check - in is actually in a internet cafe/launderette, which was a bit unusual, and the a4 printed sign stuck in the window did not fill me with confidence. However, once we went it and started... More

The hostel is right near the termini metro station which is perfect for getting a start to your day. small discount at a food joint nearby (food was average) and a free breakfast at a cafe near them as well (coffee or juice and croissant). Beds were clean and room had a television. Downsides were the walls are super thin,... More

Wow! We don't even know where to start. Both of us travel frequently and have each been to a lot of hostels alone and together (100+) but this is by far one of the best! We were greeted by Jonny who set us up with a map for the next three days, marking restaurants (check out Andrea's!), prices, tips and... More

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.
