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. It is only two blocks from the side of the train station. The double decker tour busses are only a couple of block on the...

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...

My trip was the first time I've ever backpacked to a foreign country alone, and the first time I did a hostel. And Alessandro didn't let me down. It was amazing, the staff were super friendly and helpful. The people in my dorm were lovely and everyone just got along really well. It's the PERFECT location, being so close to...

I stayed at this hostel twice back in June 2016. It was my first time staying in a hostel and I was a little apprehensive especially being a single female traveller. I have to say it exceeded my expectations. The front desk workers were extremely friendly and very helpful. The room was a decent size and the lockers (the ones...

This hostel is simple enough, 90% of the staff are friendly Filipino dudes who will do their best to help. I picked this place initially because the late check in availability. When I first arrived here it was at 1am and was an incredibly short walk from termini. This is hands down the closest hostel to the airport coach bus...

The place was clean and inexpensive. Ample hot water, room heater worked well and washer/dryer wasn't broken. These are the main things I look for when I book hostels. You don't realise the importance of these once you run into something that doesn't work. It is a 7 mins walk to Termini so thats a huge plus if you are...

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.
