The atmosphere was sort of funky. Their pub crawl starts at their place and then moves on with the staff of the hostel being vaguely but noticeably tired of their lives. There was no hot water when we were there, not an ounce. It sucked...More

its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot

Hi Gareth, I suggest getting a private room. They have 2 singles beds with a private bathroom and enough place to leave you bikes. Sounds like a great adventure! Enjoy!
