I stayed at Legends Hostel for three nights and it was okay, with some issues. I had to switch rooms every day and the first two rooms were smelling like sausage... At first I thought someone ate sausages there, but then I realized it came from the air condicioning... The Dutch receptionist was very kind and recommended me a great...

This hostel is very simple but some of my friends stayed at another hostel and it was terrible, so i think this one must be preety nice for roman hostels. It's facilities are not new and you can tell, but it was okay. It is preety clean, the staff is nice and polite, but the breakfast was a little too...

But of an outraged review sorry folks! Decided to change my ways and review anywhere I remembered particularly well. I stayed here 4 nights in October 2011. Nice hostel. Best bathroom of any hostel I've been to- still. 1 ensuite bathroom for 4 girl dorm. Clean, hot water and shelving unit so able to partially unpack- little luxury. Super friendly...

The legends hostel wasn't the best experience for us. We couldn't find the place at first because it's on the 2nd level of an apartment building with no sign. Once we got in there was no one at reception for about 15 minutes so we waited in the room with no air conditioning. Once the guy arrived he was furious...

Definitely an older hostel, and small, but still not bad! The staff were very nice, and there was a good vibe with the other travellers and easy to meet new people! The breakfast was not very good... But there is a coffee/espresso machine available for use 24/7! Also, very close to Termini station which was very nice

I stayed at Legends RG for five nights and loved it. The room was clean and the sheets fresh every night. The ensuite was also really clean and spacious with a great shower. The free breakfast was great - eat as much as you want toast, bread, jams, biscuits, and cereals (cornflakes and muesli). They have a fridge where you...

One of the better hostels I've stayed in. The room is very clean as well as the bathroom. Very close to the train station, and right down the street is a diner that has 3€ "American" breakfast. Honestly can't go wrong with this place.

This is neither a bad review nor a great one. Overall I felt the accommodation did what it promised. It was suitable for my needs and was as expected. But I feel that with a few alterations and improvements, it has great potential and could go from being adequate to amazing. With regards to the beds, they we ok. I...

I had a great time there, staff friendly, located about 100m from Termini station, which you can get transport to the whole city... I met incredible people there. When I arrived there I could take a shower b4 my checkin, that helped me a lot..lol! They also give the possibility to pay the booking when you do the check out....

Great hostel, the cleaner guy took a lot of pride in his work, as he should because the place was spotless! He wouldn't even let me do my own dishes, have never had that in a hostel before. Day staff were friendly and helpful, provided us with a really useful map and some local knowledge. Beds were very comfy and...

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.

“All rooms have large windows that open onto street or noisy court yard, but the windows block out 90% of the noise when closed, so don't worry if there is street noise when you first go into the room.”
