It was our first time in Rome and The Bluehostel was a perfect place for us to stay. It is close to the station, and a great place to come back to after exploring all day. The room was quiet and the bed very comfortable....More

We stayed at the Blue Hostel recently and it was the perfect base from which to explore Rome (and to rest and recover after a long day's sightseeing)! The rooms face away from the road and are therefore very quiet. There is no lift in...More

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
