A rock solid hostel in a very central part of Rome right near the main train station which give easy access to the airport, the metro and buses all over the city. The highlight for me was the large wooden doors at the entrance; such a stately feel. The staff were incredibly helpful and did everything they could to help...

The staff was amazing! The guy stayed late because our flight was delayed and we couldn't get in until 11. He was very understanding and even told us some cool shortcuts for the city. A complimentary wine and free breakfast. The breakfast is amazing and really nice. My friends and I split a 5 person room and were amazed at...

Bed bugs! Was told to either stay in same bed or go to another hostel when i asked for help. The "owner" was utterly unprofessional, he kept on denying the problem. I only got bitten after second night, clearly from this hostel. When i finally found another hostel coz i had enough of his hostility, he only refunded me 27...

My two friends and I stayed at the Funny Palace for 2 nights. The hostel is near the train station, and within close proximity of several restaurants. Our room was upgraded, we were given towels, and a bottle of wine, all free of charge. Within moments of arriving we were briefed of the entire city with a map, color coated...

The rooms were comfortable , it was a little odd at the beginning since the check in is in a laundromat and the rooms 1 block from there, not sure where the other rooms were. Once we were in our room we felt comfortable. The location was fine, there were some good places for eating. Termini is not a beautiful...

At five minutes walking from Termini station, the location could not have been better! The staff are quite friendly and helpful. One heads up: the check-in is at the Laundromat and Internet point. Their rooms are distributed among several buildings. The rooms are really clean and well furnished. However, if you are looking for a typical youth hostel atmosphere, you...

This wasn't the most amazing hostel for atmosphere, and the check in was completed in a laundromat. There was no common area or kitchen. However, it was in a very good location and everything in the room was comfortable, clean and working. We enjoyed our stay because we slept well and found the stay to be quite comfortable. Rome can...

On our arrival we received a bottle of free wine which we later discovered was off. This pretty much set the tone of our five night stay at funny palace. This place is not really like a normal hostel as there are various rooms separated over a couple of floors which detracts from the atmosphere that other hostels have and...

when I first got dropped off from the airport I was a little lost and didnt know where to go. If you ask anybody where the street of the hostel is they will tell you its very close which is it. Once you figure out how to get there is probably 5 streets away from where you get dropped off....

This hostel was surprisingly very nice. I was a little skeptical when we arrived because the place dosent have a sign and where you check in is a laundry mat. But once we checked in the staff sat down with us, opened a map and showed up how to get everywhere. They basically helped us plan out our whole trip,...

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.
