Welcome to The Beehive!

We're Linda & Steve and we moved to Rome with a dream, 2 cats and a Swiss Army knife to start our hostel, The Beehive.  Since 1999, we've been welcoming travelers of all ages and countries to our small, cozy, family-owned hostel. Behind the front desk you'll find the owners Linda or Steve or our manager Yuli or one of our rotating volunteers. Our housekeeper Lea keeps our place clean, neat, and tidy. We're located right near Rome's central train station Termini so no need to lug your bags across the city when you first arrive. Whether you're traveling solo, with friends or family, or as a couple, we have a variety of room types to suit a variety of travel styles and budgets: dorm rooms (including female-only dorms) and private rooms with shared or private bathroom. Other areas include our courtyard garden where you can relax at anytime of the day and where we host many events. There's also our cozy lounge for reading and socializing and the use of our communal eat-in kitchen.

Please note that we do not have 24 hour reception. Check-in hours are 09:00-21:00.


The Beehive is us

We're environmentalists, social justice activists and vegetarians. We don't just talk the talk but extend our beliefs into our business and have been doing so for over two decades. We use recycled paper products, LED lighting, repurpose furniture and more. We host clothing & book swaps, have acted as a drop-off point for donations to a homeless organization, promote sustainable travel and buying from and supporting local businesses to name a few things we do. For podcasts and articles about us, click here.

A trip is only made great if you receive (and use) excellent advice and recommendations. Our app contains two decades worth of curated suggestions, compiled by our own experience of living in this city and of staying informed about what's new & relevant. We believe strongly in sharing our advice so whether you're here for 1 day or 1 week, we want you to eat well and experience the best of Rome.
