Hostels in Rome


Italy’s capital city of Rome is a must-stop on any proper tour of Europe – but for travelers on a budget Rome can be a challenge. Italy in general is on the expensive side, and it’s easy to spend quite a bit on accommodation. This is one reason why staying in hostels in Rome is a good idea.

There are quite a few Rome hostels to choose from when you’re planning your trip, and the links below will help you sort through all your options.

>> Ask around among budget travelers who’ve been to Rome a few times and you’re likely to hear the name “The Beehive” come up repeatedly. The Beehive started as a hostel, and has evolved over the last decade into one of Rome’s coolest budget hotels (there are still some dorm rooms available for hostelgoers) that boasts an on-site organic cafe. It’s run by American expats Steve & Linda, and although I’ve never stayed there I hear from several trusted sources that it’s a real gem. But don’t delay a booking here, because they fill up fast.
