The hostel itself has a...

Amazing hostel with a great staff, specially Filmer who helped us very well. If you want a cool hostel, this is your choice. It's really close from Termini Station and you can reach all the touristic places from here.

My friend and I stayed in this hostel for three nights. I enjoyed it because the hostel tried to provide activities that enabled you to meet other people. On some nights you can bar hop with people in the hostel and on other nights the hostel has sangria and snacks. It's a great place to go and socialize. Also the...

Nice & clean place, wonderful location, the staff was always helpful and there were very diverse guests always willing to chat and share a wine. The kitchen facilities were a plus, being able to cook your own food helps saving money eating healthy.

One of the best hostels I've ever been in. Stuff is so nice and friendly, especially Ovens. Station is one street away. Really nice location because you can use any bus at station, also 10mins by walk to Colosseo. Comfortable, clean, never had any waiting for the bathroom because there are too many.

Went to this hostel based on reviews on Hostelworld and was very satisfied. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and cleaned daily and the staff was welcoming and friendly. They offer a 4€ breakfast which wasn't that great, but for 4€ it was fine. We didn't go to any unfortunately but they offer a few activities between other hostels in...

It was my first time staying at a hostel, and also the first time visiting a city as a backpacker. The location is perfect, the staff is very kind and helpful and the rooms are spacious. Tried the breakfast as well and it's pretty good for 4€.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. 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 neighbourhood 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 centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
