Property Description

We’re 15 minutes’ walk from St. Peter’s Cathedral. Located in the heart of Rome (Trastevere) this women-only hostel is set in a 16th-century ex-convent inside the International Women's House (Casa Internazionale delle Donne).

We offer beds in dorms or private rooms. All the rooms are very large and quiet and overlook the inner garden or the typical red rooftops. There are no bunk beds. Each room features ceiling fans and include linen.

The living room features a kitchen corner and a fridge for the guests' use. Breakfast is not included, but we offer american coffe and tea.

Our amenities include free Internet and Wi-Fi in the lobby and garden, free hot showers, 10 toilets, a wash-and-dry service and a book exchange/library. We also have maps and tourist information and can help you with museum reservations.

Guests can relax in our large garden under the centuries-old magnolia and taste the menus offered at the Restaurant Luna e l’Altra, at a special price.

Orsa Maggiore is located in a quiet and relaxing spot in the very centre of Rome. Our characteristic neighbourhood, Trastevere, is one of the attractions of ancient Rome, full of cinemas, theatres, bars, small restaurants and artisan shops; hence, it’s an ideal spot for a taste of everyday city life. We’re also just a few minutes’ walk from Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, Synagogue, Gianicolo Hill and the Botanical Gardens.
