Very friendly staff. I was only there for one night but it was a good experience. I like the keycard access. Legends is clean! If you are looking for a hostel then I think the is a good value for the money. My GPS took my down a road that was a little sketchy. But after I found the hostel...

A good value for the money, and it feels like you're at a nice hotel. It doesn't have the normal "hostel" feel. Our room had about 5 beds, with a private bathroom and balcony. The room gets cleaned daily between 10-3. Some thought this was an inconvenience because you must be out of the room at that time, but it...

We stayed there for 5 nights and we were very pleased with the place, location and staff. The location is very good, close to the main station yet the street itself is nice and quiet. All the staff were always friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy. Was a great help to have the breakfast and dinner included,...

I stayed in this hostel on my four days trip to Rome last month. I had a great stay at Legends. I felt I was just at home because of the homey atmosphere. There was free breakfast, a little night party in the annex building where I stayed. One can cook too . Supermarkets were just around the corner. The...

This place was actually pretty awesome, other than the fact the wifi was a tad weak at times. But I kinda enjoyed that fact that breakfast and dinner was provided. A saver for my pitiful wallet. The beds were comfy and the toilet I got for the 6 bedded female dorm in the annex building was pretty clean. The location...

I stayed here for four nights. The good things are you get a free breakfast and also a dinner which is pizza, but if you're on a budget it's a nice thing! The rooms weren't bad they were typically the only thing that sucked bad was the lockout period it was very annoying. And another thing I didn't like was...

Their rooms are clean and their staffs are nice. Very convenient. There are 2 supermarkets next to the hostel. They have a free map of Rome, free lockers(but you'll have to bring your own keylock), free wifi and PCs with internet access free to use. Breakfast is included and there's a pizza party every evening except on Sundays (you can...

Excellent vacation in Rome.. Definitely going back to legends.. :) Really accessible the Metro stations and other public transportation. Staff are really helpful, where they teach us on how to get around in the city and tourist attraction to see. Definitely worth it to stay.

I stay in hostels every time I travel and this has got to be the worst hostel ever even worse than the hostel I stayed in Cambodia. The room for 6 females is cramped and sockets are not placed for each bed. Breakfast is the worst. One croissant and a cappuccino which tastes like water. I can't believe I had...

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.

“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.”
