You'll find the cosmopolitan Des Artistes Budget Rooms within the 3-star Des Artistes hotel – giving you all the advantages of a hotel (like fresh linen) at a hostel price-point. Spend the morning with a frothy cappuccino on the rooftop terrace and soak up some sunshine, or fill your plate at the continental buffet for an additional charge. Come evening, stop by the hotel's bar for local beers and meet other travellers in the communal lounge before heading out for the night.


Our city-centre location in Municipio I means we're just a 9-minute walk from Termini train station and SIT bus station. To reach us from Ciampino Airport, take the non-stop Flixbus for 45 minutes to SIT. If you're coming from Fiumicino Airport, get the non-stop RV for 32 minutes to Termini. We're surrounded by transport links, which makes seeing the city super easy. The Colosseum is 10 minutes away via metro, while Vatican City can be reached in under 45 minutes (take the RV from Termini to Roma S.Pietro and then walk for 14 minutes).

Rooms and Dorms

Take the elevator up to the dormitory floor, where you'll get all the fun of hostel living in a hotel-like layout. You get a single bed instead of a bunk (bonus!), a cable TV, a hair dryer and air con. There are also private rooms – some in a separate annex of the hotel – with shared bathrooms.

Extras and activities

Before you spend a day wandering through Rome, stop by our 24-hour reception to pick up a free city map. Ask our helpful staff for recommendations on a top-notch gelateria, or hire a bike from us so you can cruise around the city's sights with your friends. Checking out earlier than your departing flight, train or bus? Leave your bags at the hostel in self-lock lockers (big enough for a small case) while you're out.

    Overall, I had a great stay here. I made good conversation with my hostel room mates. The receptionists were happy to provide advice when I needed it. My only criticism is that the Wi-Fi cannot cope when there are a lot of guests in the hotel at one time. Please try to increase your Wi-Fi bandwidth!

    Great hotel, very clean. 5 minutes walk from Termini. I stayed in a private room, and loved the amenities. It had a TV, study desk, safe & wardrobe. Soap and shampoo were provided at no extra cost. My only issue was it was not ensuite, but nonetheless all the bathrooms were very clean. Plus review: I had forgotten my new watch there, and they found it and kept it for me.

    Friendly welcoming staff. The whole hotel was clean to a high standard. It was quiet and just what we needed for our stay in Rome. Close to the metro and to bus stops. 15 minute walk from Termini. Nice little cafés and a handy wee supermarket nearby. We would stay here again.

    In brief, expect a hotel like venue rather than a hostel!. It is very comfortable, and friendly. Helpful staff are available and speak many languages; English and Italian at least. The hostel doesn't rent towels so you have to buy it for 3.5 Euros. For me that is better than renting it so at least I know the towels are new and clean and not used before. Lockers are available for free. If you want, bring a lock with you otherwise you'll have to buy a lock from them. Beds come with bed sheets.

    Clean and comfortable. The beds were sort of noisy - like covered in plastic? Which is reassuring for cleanliness but a little annoying. Check in process was smooth, location near termini was convenient. Absolutely acceptable hostel - not an exceptional experience (but not every hostel needs to be!) I would stay again.

    Fine if you just need a place to sleep. Zero atmosphere, basically an empty hotel, no common area, so you can only meet people in your room. Wifi also did not work properly most of the time I was there. Otherwise nice enough, fairly close to the main train station

    Located right by Termini station with good food options. Wifi was really slow, especially in the room. Toilet paper wasn’t refilled for two days in the shared bathrooms. Room service cleaned our rooms each day though which was good. If wifi was better, this would have been a great stay.
