It was my first time staying at a hostel, and also the first time visiting a city as a backpacker. The location is perfect, the staff is very kind and helpful and the rooms are spacious. Tried the breakfast as well and it's pretty good for 4€.

Everything is close at hand. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place is neat and tidy. It's a perfect place for group visits. The atmosphere is inviting especially for youngsters. It's full of young and lively people.

probably the best Hostel location in Rome ... it's about 3 minutes walking from Rome Termini ( the main train , bus and Metro station in Rome ) and 1.5 km from the colosseum and Trevi Fountain ... the staff are so friendly and they have many parties ... the place is clean and comfortable

Very well located near to Termini (main train station) and one metro stop away from the bus station. The service is good for backpackers travellers, with plenty of common spaces. Is really near to the coliseum and many other atractions by walk distance. Completely recommended for a cheap and convenient stay in Rome.

As a female traveling alone there is always caution on my mind and those this doesn't look like the best neighborhood I did not have any problems and found the area great for seeing Rome.

I have visited Rome a few times and stayed in a few hostels. The standard of hostels in Rome is generally lower than, for example, Berlin. However, this hostel is one of the best on offer. The staff are really helpful and polite, and all the services you expect are here. I had a noisy group of travellers in my...

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.
