    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

    Hello! I've read a lot about the neighbourhood being potentially sketchy - is there anything to be concerned about as a solo female traveller with the area? Also how far is the hostel from the main attractions in Rome? I've read some reviews that say the hostel is close to attractions and some reviews say the hostel is far away. Thank you!
