Checked in, had to pay up front with cash. The credit card on file is used for people who don't show up. They said the money will be released within a month. So bad luck if you needed the money for something else. The room doesn't have a lock. The door to the rooms is meant to be closed but... More

I love this place! I was staying in a dormitory with cool paintings on the walls and a sink which was really useful if the bathrooms were busy. I spent so much time in the common rooms because they were so cozy! Just loved everything, especially the nice atmosphere. Cleanliness was ok, but it's understandable in dormitories, still there was... More

We felt the rooms were less secure in terms of security, in addition we observed irregular bathroom and room cleaning schedules and poor wifi receptivity in some floors ! the only advantage is that the hostel is located opposite to termini station (center of rome)!

I'm someone who doesn't complain. Cheap hostels don't phase me. However, this place is in a completely different category. Upon arrival I had to pay the total fee in cash before receiving my room key. My 'bed' was two couch cushions pushed together on the floor. I booked a three person share but they squish four people in a room... More

I only had one night in Rome and chose this hostel due to its location in front of Termini station. I booked a private room with ensuite private washroom. On arrival in the evening, I was told that the credit card machine was not working and I had to pay the full room rent before getting the room keys in... More

I stayed here for one night. The hostel was very easy to find and the location perfect for a person with an early flight back home. You only need to cross the road to get to Termini Station. I got a map and very good suggestions on what I would have time to see in my limited time in Rome,... More

0 out of 5 -- This hostel isn't even worth a second of your time. Unfortunately, I had to book a room here because The Yellow (so fun-- 5 mins walking away) was booked for my final night in Rome. When I arrived at 10:30 pm that night, nothing was ready and she told me I'd be staying on a... More

We found this place ok. It was right next to the train station which is very handy. The room was clean. The wifi is only available in the reception area. The water pressure in the shower was terrible. Other than that the room was fine. Not sure i would stay there again next time.

I have literally just left Pop Inn Hostel and am waiting at the airport for my flight. My friend and I got the train to the airport and whilst we were sat waiting to arrive I noticed something biting my foot. I killed it and noticed it was a BED BUG!

Staying in Esquilino

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.
