I think this hostel was offering very cheap price (tax included, other hostels will charge 3-3,5 euros per night for the tax) with good facilities and the room space was quite big for 6 persons. And very closes to Termini.

Really hospitable hostel. 5 min walk from Rome Termini station, nice young guests who also stayed in the common room. Only the staff wasn't at reception at all times but a walk to staff room would do.

I stayed in a women's dorm, and found amenities to be exactly what I had been told to expect. I ended up on a top bunk, and had to get creative with things I normally keep bedside, but I was able to make it work. There were lockers IN the dorm, which made it very convenient to store property while...

Hostel nice and close to train station. Buzz to get let in. Reception on second floor all staff friendly! Then rooms on third floor, there is a lift if your feeling lazy. Shared bathroom, pretty good, two showers and two toilets with 4 basins and two hairdryers, could do with bit of updating but all clean and functional. Beds are...

Very clean hostel, with spacious rooms and very good prices for the standards of Rome. The local tax (3.5 € per day) does not have to be paid, which gives a big advantage to the hostel. The neighbourhood is quiet in general and the hostel as well. Great location very close to Termini station as well as Cavour metro, just...

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.
