We had a fantastic stay at the Blue Hostel, Rome. I am so pleased we decided to book this accommodation as it was well above our expectations. Ercole was really helpful when we booked and when we arrived we were welcomed by a member of staff who did a great job of showing us all the places on the "infamous...

Great stay at Blue Hostel! It was an easy walk from Termini Station. The room and private bathroom were clean and spacious. Check in was easy and fast. The gentleman that helped us check in was very informative and gave us a great map and recommendations for dining. I did not see a lift/elevator in the building so some rooms...

I would definitely stay at Blue Hostel again if I went back to Rome. Blue Hostel has an apartment feel with hotel services - they own a couple hallways of a building of apartments. As soon as you walk out the door of the building, you walk into the bustling life of Rome. Staff helped my friend and I get...

Blue Hostel is situated in a great location, close to Termini and the metro, but also a comfortable walking distance from many of the key sites and Romes centre. The area has a nice mix of traditonal Italian restaurants and fine dining options, plus the bonus of the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore a few seconds away. Our room was...

We had a great stay in Blue Hostel. The appartement was perfect for the 4 of us. Having breakfast in Panella, walking through the park to the Colloseum, and having great meals in the restaurants our hosts proposed. A place you would like to keep a hidden secret. Clean, spacious, stylish , everything you need without being posh. Not being...

If it's a toss up between a hotel and a nice hostel- stay here for sure (coming from a couple that doesn't stay in hostels often). Book well in advance and feel confident that you will be very happy with the room. Hard to find at first as it seems to be in an old apartment building. No elevator but...

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.
