Our stay at the Ciak Hostel was pleasant and comfortable. The service is good, the rooms are a bit small but still fine and the bathrooms are big enough. The area were the hostel is situated is fine and close to a supermarket, metro station and there are also busses and trams you could use. The hostel is from walking...

We took the airport shuttle bus from Fiumicino airport to Termini station. You would think it would be difficult to navigate your way around Termini station but it is pretty easy to get around. The above ground area of the station is where you would catch the trains that would take you to other parts of Italy or other countries...

Good location, very close to the metro station Manzoni, also close to Termini. Staff is kinda mixed. Bare minimum breakfast, springy beds, just-about-functional bathrooms. Wifi only works in the lobby. Nothing spectacular, but if you're in Rome for 2 or 3 days you won't spend too much time indoors and therefore should be fine.

The hostel is well located - about 15 mins from the Termini station and about 5 mins from the Manzoni metro station. There is a tram stop at the Manzoni station which takes you to Colosseum. There is also a super market nearby for groceries. We had a private room in the basement of the 'Secret Garden' which is another...

My first thought on trudging my way from Termini station, was that Ciak is a lot farther away than it looks on the map! But a friendly welcome made me glad I chose this hostel. It's fairly small, maybe a little snug at times, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is basic, but that is typical of Rome anyhow. Nice...

Near by Trimini station, down town. Good transportation. Close to metro, tram or bus station. There is a supermarket near by. Staff is very kind and friendly. Nice and clean room (i took room for 4 female). Breakfast is not good. I don't know if it's better than nothing. But there are small kitchen so you can cook by yourself...

Staff are friendly and efficient if you need something but otherwise keep to themselves. Bathroom was not well ventilated so a bit mouldy but otherwise clean, I did have to ask for toilet paper once, though it was Sunday and apparently housekeeping doesn't happen on Sundays. Room was clean though a bit dusty under beds etc. Mattresses average. Window was...

Our room was in the basement of the Secret Garden. It was not really clear at the booking, that we would not stay in the Hostel, but in its brunch. Anyway, they have beautiful images on their website... which are not true. How dare they rent that room, we stayed in? It could be a storage room, but not a...

I went to Rome during the Easter weekend this year. Fortunately I stayed at Ciak Hostel. Very nicely located, steps away from the metro station, very near to the tramway. One could easily reach Collosseum by tram T2 or walk.

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.
