I was nervous at first about staying here because I haven't stayed at many hostels in the past. Everything here went smoothly and I would recommend this hostel for budget backpackers who are spending a few days in Rome. The staff here were a pleasure to talk to and were very knowledgeable about Rome and had some awesome recommendations for...

I've been to Rome twice, and stayed at M&J both times. Next time I visit, I'll stay there again. Firstly, Mario is awesome. He speaks a few languages and is passionate about ensuring visitors enjoy his native city. He want far out of his way to provide directions and suggestions, and was extremely helpful. He and the rest of the...

The worst hostal I've ever been in my life. The personal is rude, unfriendly and incompetent, from the manager to the employeers. The floor of the bathrooms are incredibly dirty and not to mention the beds... Look for another hostels in Roma, the exist!! There are just as cheap and with other kind of staff, trust me.

I like the place. The room was very nice, I stay in a single room and this was very comfortable and clean. The service was great and also the attention. The breakfast is cheap and you can eat whatever you want. I would return to this hostel.

My friend and I were not impressed with the service, or the room or the bathroom. In fact, we could not wait to get out of this hostel. The room was freezing, the shower leaked everywhere and when I was using the wifi in the lobby, they turned off the lights at one point.... (maybe to conserve energy?? great way...

I got in winter time, for a week. It is really well located, next to the train station (termini), and the guys in the front desk offer a great service, great atention.

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.
