You can walk from Termini Railway Station and navigate the small alleys to reach this hostel. It is quite easy to find and there are a lot of shops around to buy daily necessities or to have decent dinner or lunch. The hostel situated on 4th or 3rd floor (I can't remember), but they have antique lift to use. The...

We came to this hostel immediately after checking out of another hostel which we'd had a terrible experience at. The rooms were big and spacious, the bathrooms were very clean and the showers were good (not the best water pressure but definitely decent). Staff were incredible and very helpful. Only downside was that the stove does not work.

The hostel is just half of floor of a building, it really doesn't have a reception, so the check in and everything you have to do it with hotel across the street, and prepare yourself because they're not the welcoming type. Basically the hostel it's just 4 rooms with 3 shared bathrooms, that aren't really clean. It's near to the...

The location is within walking distance (even with luggage) from the Termini Train Station, but far away enough that there are not lots of random people hanging around it. I walked from the hostel to all of the main sites, including the Vatican. It is a very small hostel, it has 4 rooms of 6 (I think). So not the...

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.

The Ciampino Airport is kind of far from the center of Rome, so you can take a Cotral/Schiaffini bus from the airport to get to the Ciampino Train Station. From there you should be able to take a train and get to Rome Termini which is only few blocks away from the hostel (Via Castelfidardo). The hostel is in front of the Il Papavero Hotel, but you'll have to go there first to check-in and then move on to the Papaya Hostel. Hope it helps!

“Ask for the room with the private bathroom if you are travelling with friends and the hostel has enough bunk beds, if they do, you might have the room and the bathroom all to yourselves :3”
