          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

          Just wondering if there is car parking available, and if so how much? I am traveling with my own car and this can always be a little bit difficult when booking accomodation. However this hostel looks amazing so I am very interested in staying!
