Property Description

Rome's homiest and most chill hostel since 1999, we're a sanctuary in the midst of a bustling city. From the moment you walk in, The Beehive is the kind of place where you'll feel at home. It's walking barefoot down to the cafe for your morning coffee; getting great advice; eating good food; drinking great wine and having a good night's sleep. Located conveniently just two blocks from Rome's central train station, Termini, you won't have to lug around town a heavy backpack or luggage. Our relaxed vibe and casually stylish atmosphere are perfect for unwinding after a day of exploration.

Owned and run by Linda and Steve, the American owners who packed up their apartment in Los Angeles and took a chance on a crazy idea. Along with their two cats and a Swiss Army knife, they moved to Rome to follow their dream of creating a unique and welcoming space where they could also share their local insider information to their guests about all the best Rome has to offer.

Whether you're traveling solo, with friends or family, or as a couple, The Beehive has a variety of room types to suit all needs and budgets: dorm beds (including several female-only dorms), private rooms with shared bathroom and private rooms with private bathrooms.

Our cafe serves organic & vegetarian breakfast daily (not included in the rate), communal dinners twice a week and we offer weekly cooking classes. Wine, beer, coffee and tea are available from our reception staff throughout the day. Guests have access to limited self-catering kitchen facilities with microwave, kettle, refrigerator, plates & glasses, but no stovetop or oven access. Relax in the small indoor lounge filled with personal photos, books, board games and a guitar or out in our courtyard garden with trees, plants and colorful murals.

NO 24-hour reception. Our reception closes at 23:00. If your flight arrives after 21:00 it's not likely you will reach us in time. We cannot accept late arrivals. Late arrivals will find a closed reception and will be charged the late cancellation/no show penalty.

NB: Cards will be checked for validity and pre-authorized to check for funds. Any cards found to be invalid or with inadequate funds to cover the reservation amount will result in reservation cancellation.

Cancellation / no-show policy:

This property has a 2 day cancellation policy. Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first two nights of your stay.

COVID UPDATE: Upon reopening in early June we may have limited staff and limited services based on the number of guests and our ability to adhere to regional health guidelines. With few guests we can't guarantee that our cafe will be open or that classes, communal dinners and events will take place (although we're happy to recommend nearby places). We also cannot guarantee staff availability and request you contact us in advance for same day reservations and be prepared to let us know your arrival time so we can organize. Thanks!

    I enjoyed my stay at the Beehive, it was a very quiet and budget friendly place to stay. The woman at reception really took time to fill me in on local tips and I was grateful for it!

    I only got to stay in Rome for two nights, but I am very glad I got to stay at the Beehive. It was a nice relaxing atmosphere and my flatmates were awesome! The closeness to Termini Station was a huge plus. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Rome who want quick access to all of the main sites in the city and want a more relaxing (less party-vibe culture) stay. Also, loved meeting Yulie! She works hard and does everything she can to make you feel comfortable.

    One of the most beautiful places in the world. The receptionist is amazing. Kind and extremely inviting. The owners are wonderful people that anyone would be lucky to meet and spend time with. Lovely garden area. Super clean. Quiet at night. The private rooms are very reasonably priced considering the neighborhood and proximity to bus station and central Rome. If you're visiting Italy this is a place I highly recommend you consider staying. 10 out of 10 on every level. This spot is a gem.

    This hostel has a great atmosphere, is located in a very convenient place and offers you everything you need as a budget traveler. I would definitely recommend the family style dinners that they're offering. The only suggested improvement I have is installing some hooks in the bathroom and maybe also some handtowels

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Beehive. The dinner there was especially lovely, the food cooked by the owner of the hostel was delicious. There were seven of us at the dinner when I participated, which was just the perfect amount to get to know each other. Overall, the hostel has a really friendly vibe. Also, the location was very convenient, close to the Termini station and within walking distance from all the major sights. Highly recommend this place!

    Best hostel I've stayed at. Great location (right by Termini), very clean and comfortable. The only downside was the small kitchen area with just a microwave, but that is clearly advertised on the hostel page. As a budget traveler, I would have liked to stay longer but I cant get by without a stove for meals. However, I met a lot of lovely people during my stay and the community dinners and cooking class are a must!
