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 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 View House Rules

    Great location, very close to Termini train station. Very clean and friendly. I stayed in one of the female dorms, which is located around the corner from the main site. I like the big table in the common area. Most of the other women were also traveling solo and it forced us to sit together, get to know each other, and share travel stories and advice.

    This hostel sets the bar high. It was my first experience staying at a hostel when I stayed a year and a half ago. I’ve since returned 3 times. I am pleasantly surprised at everything this hostel has to offer: clean and secure rooms with elegant decor, a fully functional kitchen with breakfast and dinner service available at times, a comfortable and homey common room, bathrooms very clean and big, an outdoor seating area and a reception desk staffed with friendly and informative staff.

    The Beehive is a lovely hostel! Super convenient to the main train station that is an access point for anywhere in Rome. Fun, safe neighborhood and communal dinners were lovely.

    One of the best hostels I've been to so far in my travels. The front desk young woman (forgot her name) is so hospitable and will show you everything! Clean, quiet, welcoming, and the location is perfect!! Right down the street from Train Station. I am definitely coming back here next time I come to Rome!!

    The good. Super clean, great location, friendly staff, comfortable beds, no bunk beds, very safe, excellent communal area. My dislikes. The kitchen area for guests is sufficient, except no proper sink is available for washing produce or filling the kettle. You are supposed to walk upstairs to ask the front desk to do it for you instead of walking 10ft to do it yourself in the kitchen sink. No free luggage storage. 2euro fee. This is the second hostel I've ever experienced this with.

    A truly excellent hostel run by great people. Lovely warm welcome on arrival. Spotless facilities. A stone’s throw from Termini. Thoroughly recommend doing the family dinner - fantastic food, free-flowing wine and terrific company. I will be back!

    I’ve stayed at a lot of hostels in the past 10 years, and this is by far the best one. The owners have put so much love into this place. They greet you by name, they have an app with all the best recommendations, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and secure, the bathrooms are ALWAYS spotless, they cook breakfasts and dinners (affordable) and have delicious affordable wine and coffee. Not a party hostel, but fantastic for chilling out. This place is just wonderful and feels like home. Thanks!

    Friendly staff and people so great environment. Showers are all outside of rooms. I stayed only one night before an early flight however I would certainly go back :). They have wine and food options at great rates! Super close to train station but away from the crazy business of the city.

    Really loved the place. Stayed in a separate building in a female only room. It was relaxing and quiet after a busy day. Close to Termini and the bus station so very accessible to drive on public transport to places. Linda and Yuli were so friendly and helpful. The place felt quite clean which is a plus and the bathrooms in the female dorm were not overused as only a few of us using them... There was alot of noise from outside but I would definitely recommend staying here. Great place!
