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. We were walking around the area, but it was not labeled at all. Eventually we saw a small label and a call button...

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...

I was just happy to have a place to stay because I hadn't booked a room anywhere before getting to Roma. But that was all this place was...a bed to sleep in, and a very shaky bed at that. I asked for a towel and they gave me one but it was basically a hand towel for my shower. I...

Good location - only 20 minute walk from Colosseum and plenty of cheap restaurants nearby. Nicely decorated - small thing but makes a difference. Good wifi in comparison to other hostels! Fully equipped kitchen (if v small). Only one shower which is v annoying as our flat had at least 15 people staying in it. Kitchen v cramped but good...

We stayed at the hostel for four nights and given the low prices, our stay was alright. The staff is trying their best to manage the hostel and the beds are fairly clean and comfortable. The hostel is located in the very centre of Rome which makes it easy to get to all the main attractions. If you don't want...

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.
