Although small, this hostel is perfect for me, as it would be for any lone traveler who wants to have all the comforts of a hotel while still experiencing the warmth of a family.

Do NOT stay here!!!! They try to charge you a hostel tax fee, which does NOT exist in Rome for HOSTELS! It exists for Bed and Breakfasts, campsites, nicer hotels, but NOT for hostels! They will charge you 2 more euros every night for every person who stays there. Which is clearly a scam! There are three hostels like this...

DO NOT STAY HERE! You will get bed bugs! The staff is nice but the rooms are disgusting, cluttered, and unsafe. This is the worst hostel i have ever stayed in and would never stay again. In the States, a place like this would no longer be in existence someone needs to call the Italian health department on this place!...

We booked at Cherry, but actually stayed at the Astro pensionhouse across the street. It was homey, clean, cosy and great value for money. Staff very friendly, and literally just around the corner from the metro. Will stay there again and again!!

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.

“Ask for the room at the back completely: there are two doors before yours so it's pretty quiet, and you don't have people constantly walk by. The beds are much more comfortable too. No neighbours. Bring enough money to pay cash, but at the end of the stay if you don't want to walk to the other hotel to pay credit.”
