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.

    The only thing that could of been better is if there was a full length mirror in either the bedroom or atleast in the bathrooms. Also, the double bedroom was just two single beds put together which did cause some issues while sleeping ie beds moving and creating a gap. Other than that the hotel was perfect and the room was always lovely and clean

    Des Artistes is even better than the pictures. I stayed in a private room for 3 persons with my mom and cousin in the second building of the hotel. Very quiet, organized and calm. The cleaning was very good and they have a very nice number of bathrooms. There are also a fridge if you want to by some stuff as water, fruits or snacks to leave there. The staff was very welcoming and gentil. Super recommended!

    Definately worth it, 5 minutes to terminal from where by multiple buses 20 min to the city centre. The facilities are those of a hotel, as the room has a television and a private sink. Quiet Hostel, with many guests traveling solo

    Absolutely amazing hostel. Felt like a hotel. The only downside is no proper kitchen and nowhere to lock luggage away. Felt really secure, only a few minutes from the train station and not far to Rome’s landmarks. Lovely terrace space and common space, many bathrooms and showers on each floor and many fridges.

    One of my favorite hostel. It’s located in a small street which is quiet for our liking. First we went to the reception at another location which is the actual hotel. The staff is very professional and helpful. At this location, there is a common area on the fifth floor and there is a roof top. On the night of our arrival, we brought food from a nearby grocery store and went to the rooftop. The hostel itself is very clean. There are 3 washrooms which are also kept very clean. I would stay again.

    This is more of a hotel than a hostel itself. It is clean, safe, well located (near Castro Pretorio subway station), but it lacks a proper kitchen and air conditioning. I’ve been in Rome in the summer and it was a nightmare to be there without a/c. Thought it was expensive for what it offers, but I would book it again.

    The hostel was fine for the one night we stayed in it. We flew in very late at night so we were there for maybe 12 hours total. The staff was amazing. But, i feel like we were mislead by the pictures of the bathroom. It looked nothing like it (at least on my floor) and they were kinda nasty (My friend and I are a little high maintenance) . If you want an easy walk to the train station, this is your place if you don’t mind a 40 minute walk things like the Trevi Fountain/Spanish Steps.

    Booked 4 beds in a 6 bed dorm. Checked in and were placed in a 5 bed dorm. They kept adding a 6th person to the room when there weren't 6 beds so my friend kept having a random stranger in his bed for 2 days. The staff seemed to not understand why this was a problem even after we told them multiple times that there are only 5 beds not 6. The room was nice and hostel is in a good location. Bathrooms were always dirty and staff was not helpful.

    This is not a hostel. It is a hostel with dorm rooms. 0 atmosphere. The rooms were so hot! No aircon, no fans. Had an old guy in our room the first night who was incredibly rude and woke up the whole dorm early hours of the morning but they don't let people over 30 in the budget rooms? Wouldn't recommend. Stay somewhere else!
