Property Description

Established in 1990, Sandy Hostel has come to be one of the most popular accommodations in Rome and a well-known place to stay for young travelers. Since its opening it has been recommended in all the main guide books.

The structure is located in Rione Monti, a lively neighborhood close to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Just down the hill you will find the charming cobble-stone streets, Monti proper, complete with fountain for nighttime gatherings. A trendy area, it boasts artisan and vintage shops, a plethora of dining options and cafes, and bustling crowds comprised of residents, artists, tourists, and other colorful folk.

Sandy is a calm, clean, budget-friendly place to crash in the heart of Rome. It is located on the fourth floor of a 19th-century townhouse on Via Cavour, one of Rome’s main roads. Despite being a small property, with no common room and no kitchen, our guests appreciate the cozy, homey atmosphere.

Sandy Hostel is easily accessible from Termini central train station, just a few minutes' walk from the structure. Termini hosts bus and train transport to and from Rome's airports.

If you need a good night sleep Sandy hostel is the place to be. I had a comfortable Bed, The place was clean and the Bathroom was nice: clean with full Lightings and a nice Shower. It doesn't feel like a Hostel thoug, since you cannot tell it has rooms until you are in one. But Franco was there quikly to give the keys and all informations. Also it is a perfect location, between the colosseum and Termini Railway station.

Ideal location in the heart of Rome. Franco is responsive, helpful, and very friendly. Let us book another night last minute when our plans changed. The hostel itself is very safe and so is Cavour street. You get keys to the building, the hostel door, and your own door upon arrival. The rooms are clean and comfortable with big windows. Bathrooms are small but the shower is hot, so what more could you ask for? Towels and blankets are provided. We loved staying here and would definitely come back!
