I would recommend this if you are solo and want to be safe. It definitely is safe and about a 5-10 min walk from the train station. It is also near many restaurants and every morning they have a market outside on the street with...More
I stayed here in June with a friend while on a month long trip around Europe. The facilities were excellent: free wifi, and two desktop computers also connected to the internet that were free to use; a kitchen, which lacked a proper oven but had...More
I cannot recommend Papaya high enough! I stayed here for 4 nights as a solo female traveller and after some bad experiences at previous hostels regarding poor hygiene or safety I was thoroughly relieved to find Papaya was just as promised online. It was bright...More
Besides one handsy male helper, this place was great! The wifi worked, the bathrooms were beautiful and I felt very safe. Not to mention the location was very good. :) Just know that you have to check in across the street. I had a rough...More
We stayed at the Papaya hostel for a week and found it to be clean, safe and comfortable.

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood.

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

The Ciampino Airport is kind of far from the center of Rome, so you can take a Cotral/Schiaffini bus from the airport to get to the Ciampino Train Station. From there you should be able to take a train and get to Rome Termini which is only few blocks away from the hostel (Via Castelfidardo). The hostel is in front of the Il Papavero Hotel, but you'll have to go there first to check-in and then move on to the Papaya Hostel. Hope it helps!
