I stayed in a women's dorm, and found amenities to be exactly what I had been told to expect.

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... More

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.
