The rooms are small and the shared bathrooms can be untidy. Opt for a private room at the cost of extra euros. The location is a plus point and there are lot of young people around in the evenings to hang out with.

Four of us arrived to Rome on Monday afternoon. We haven't booked any room before so just decided to find something there. Our first choice was hotel "the yellow" because they have good opinion on the internet. But the service at the reception was terrible so we went to hotel Pasitano which is just next door. The gentleman at the...

Pay extra to not have a shared bigger room. there's no soap, even for the sink. This is a very basic needs Hotel. No a/c, you should be kind of hot but nothing miserable at night. Great location, right across from a super fun bar, which is another reason to pay extra for a private room: you will face the...

We have spent 3 nights in this hostel. Firstly, they made a mistake and we got another room, which was even less comfortable than what we booked, even though it was in the hotel part! On the next day, they wanted us to leave our room around 11, and then leave our luggages in the hall next to reception because...

Hotel positano was the first hostel we stayed in on a 7 month european trip and it was one of the worst hostels though also one of the cheapest. The shower doors were broken and the floor dirty. Dorm rooms looked like a hospital, but sheets were clean and beds relatively comfortable. Fun backpackers bar across the road called Yellow....

location is good, close to the station. this was the 1st hostel I have stayed at hat did not have a kitchen so if you are staying a while you, you can't really prepare any meals. I didn't find the place very clean and there were bed bugs, they argued the fact of this not being possible. I requested a...

I got lucky because my gf and I were in the shared room and only on the final day did two other people move in. The room was decent, but the facilities such as the shower/toilet were really dirty. Not really any toilet paper/soap around which isn't nice, and going up and down that elevator for any sign of internet...

I was originally planning to stay at the "Yellow Hostel" that is in the same building as Hotel Positano. However, upon arrival I discovered that Yellow Hostel was fully booked. When I asked them for a recommendation, they directed me towards Hotel Positano which is in the same building. I'm so glad this happened, because I ended up with much...

We stayed here one night and then moved across the road to a different hostel. We booked a 5 person dorm. We arrived at about 10.30pm tired from travels, checked in and went upstairs. The place is old, dirty and the room numbers are like bits of paper with a number on. We arent fussy and only wanted a clean...

Maybe it is because we got a cheaper room up on the top floor... But this place was horrible! Can't understand why it's even classed as a hotel...no towels, room was dirty... Shudder to look at the state of the pillows under the pillow cases. Bed was lumpy and very old. Bathroom was the worst part- very dirty and scummy,...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
