Pros: The hostel does have a great location, especially of you arrive late at Roma Termini. And Mario can say everything that has something to do with the hostel in a lot of languages (English, French, Russian, Japanese and Spanish or Portuguese). And there's a decent all you can eat breakfast for 3 EUR. That's it. Cons: The elevator doesn't... More

M&J is not overall a bad hostel- it's nice enough, fairly sociable and the staff were friendly. However, when I stayed there I unfortunately got terribly bitten by bed bugs. I complained after the first night and was told to move beds. I saw the marks on my sheets and even saw a couple of bugs, so there's no doubt... More

Stayed 4 nights in the first week of Aug. Good location, very close to Termini station, the heart of Rome. Cheap breakfast for three euros! Cereal, coffee, a muffin and the likes. Has a cafe on the ground level owned by the hostel too. Serves really good cappuccino. Extremely hot rooms! No air conditioning! Average toilets. Decently clean. Free wi... More

This is a late review, I stayed here last 2010. I was told, not to expect high European standards when it comes to hostels in Rome…it’s expensive for it’s price for the room and service you are getting, so just be warned and not so fussy about it. The hostel is close Termini Train Station. Exit at Marsala then go... More

Its not the nicest place, but the location really is great. If you're looking for a hotel to spend time and relax in, go somewhere else. But if you want to spend your day seeing the countless sites in Rome and have a cheap place to crash, this is an okay place.

The first thing I noticed about this place was that it had no A/C. When you're in Rome during the middle of July this is a very big deal. Just so you all know this was my first stay in a hostel so maybe I had too many expectations. Check in went smooth with the exception of the unadvertised 10... More

Great quality for what you pay. I have stayed in 4 hostels in Rome and this one was by far the best. We had a very nice double room with a bathroom and AC which was modern, clean and comfortable. Towels and soap were provided. They also have breakfast downstairs for 3 euro which was pretty good compared to other... More

I was here for 3 nights... Location of the hostel is just walking distance from Roma Termini... check in is only at 15:00... so if you land up early, you can keep your bags in common luggage room and come back at or after 15:00...even though you book Male dorm, you might end up in Mix dorm...power points are available...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
