The rooms were comfortable , it was a little odd at the beginning since the check in is in a laundromat and the rooms 1 block from there, not sure where the other rooms were. Once we were in our room we felt comfortable. The location was fine, there were some good places for eating. Termini is not a beautiful...

At five minutes walking from Termini station, the location could not have been better! The staff are quite friendly and helpful. One heads up: the check-in is at the Laundromat and Internet point. Their rooms are distributed among several buildings. The rooms are really clean and well furnished. However, if you are looking for a typical youth hostel atmosphere, you...

This wasn't the most amazing hostel for atmosphere, and the check in was completed in a laundromat. There was no common area or kitchen. However, it was in a very good location and everything in the room was comfortable, clean and working. We enjoyed our stay because we slept well and found the stay to be quite comfortable. Rome can...

On our arrival we received a bottle of free wine which we later discovered was off. This pretty much set the tone of our five night stay at funny palace. This place is not really like a normal hostel as there are various rooms separated over a couple of floors which detracts from the atmosphere that other hostels have and...

This hostel was surprisingly very nice. I was a little skeptical when we arrived because the place dosent have a sign and where you check in is a laundry mat. But once we checked in the staff sat down with us, opened a map and showed up how to get everywhere. They basically helped us plan out our whole trip,...

The location of this place is great. because its right next to the Termini. Its the place that you will land into once you reach Rome. Either by air or train. All trains from the airport connect you to this place. The owner is very friendly, gave us a bottle of wine as a welcome present. he will help you...

We emailed the owner to see if it would be okay to check in late, around 11 PM. He said that it would be fine, and after finally finding the place, he gave us a map with routes and a lot of information about how to plan our days in Rome. He also gave us a bottle of wine! We...

I stayed here with my daughter and was very surprised by the good reviews this hostel had received. I was happy to experience the check in through the laundry and internet point but it was dirty and untidy and I didn't find it ecclectic or interesting. Just dirty. The rooms were terrible and the bed rock hard and the shower...

The rooms are very nice (more like hotel) and close to the train station! The check in is a little odd in an Internet cafe but the owner is very friendly. We were a little concerned about the safety of our bags just sitting in the cafe while we toured around before check in though.

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.
