Otherwise: - sanity and cleaness were questionable (judging also from the smelly room were we left our luggage) -breakfast was a coffee and a croissant (if you advertise offering breakfast and charge for it, then at least you should provide something decent) -No wifi in the rooms -Too much noise -Too expensive for...

The people in charge are very helpful, the rooms are very comfortable and updated, the free breakfast is a very nice way to start the day. It is very close to the metro, the busses, and the train station. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend staying at Funny Palace. Jonny was so helpful when we arrived and gave us a map on which he showed us how to make the most of our time in Rome as well as vital information about transport. The hostel is in a very convenient location near Termini and our room was very nice - clean, comfortable... More

We got a five bed superior and were really impressed. The only bad thing is. There's one bathroom for everyone or at least five rooms. Its super clean they have good wifi. They give you free towels and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good nearby. City tax is added per night. Its 3.50

The rooms are more akin to a hotel than a hostel. The staff is absurdly helpful, more like one would encounter at a tourism bureau than a hostel. They provide a map and recommend a detailed itinerary in addition to the best ways to book them. My only word of warning is to avoid the recommended restaurant 'Andrés' as its... More

The check in is at a laundrymat and the restroom there is scary so you might wonder if you made a right choice. But then they take you out on another street to go to the room and it's like a proper hotel. The rooms are clean, with A/C and TV. Shower and toilet are in the room and clean.... More

Hostel was very clean and nice bathrooms. No common area so not good for socialising. Safes to keep valuables locked away. You need to check in at the laundry/Internet cafe building next door which is easy to find. Felt very safe as need three locks to get to room.

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.
