I have never been in a dirty place like that. But I start from the beginning: - The address is probably not the address where you will sleep. We had to leave the building and street. The apartment in which we have been was in Via Macao, third floor, named ‘Roberta’. It is an apartment with a few rooms, little...

Booked this hostel in advance because it was the cheapest hostel in Rome. I wouldn't recommend this hostel, it was kind of dirty and it isn't located in a very nice neighbourhood. It is close to the trainstation though.

Well, it wasn't as good as every other hostel that I have seen, but me and my friend booked it last minute so it was our only choice. It is well located. It was very difficult to find the hostel at first. We were walking around the area, but it was not labeled at all. And we asked a person...

Firstly, when I visited the reception to check in it was only then you were instructed that the hostel was not located there but in another close by building. The room I stayed in had 6 beds and the dorm contained 3 rooms but it was a bit upsetting that there was one 1 toilet and bath for everyone to...

I had read so much about this place that I thought I would stay here. I was moving back to the United States after attending university in Rome and, being that I was not sure of my exact date of departure, originally booked for three nights and stopped at the front desk for the next two days to extend my...

The location is very good. It is close to metro station. There are enough markets and local restaurants, pubs, and bars in the neighborhoods as well. The staff seemed nice, helpful, and sweet. The prices are on budget. There is free wifi, fast enough. The room can fit 6 to 8 people. There are three rooms per flat. So if...

A friend and I booked this hostel pretty last minute for our trip to Rome. The location was nice, only a five minute walk from Termini station. It was very difficult to find the hostel at first.

My daughter visited Rome last week and was unfortunately mugged and robbed some 5 minute walk from the coliseum. She was staying at the 2 Ducks who offered little or no assistance following this incident. From the feed back i have received the rooms were dirty, insecure and in a poor state of repair. As a parent i would recommend...

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.
