Welcome to The Beehive
We're Linda & Steve and we moved to Rome in 1999 with a dream, 2 cats and a Swiss Army knife to start our hostel, The Beehive. Our place is small, cozy and intimate. We have room types to fit a variety of travel styles and budgets: from dormitory rooms to private rooms with shared or private bathroom. Other areas include our courtyard garden where our guests can relax and where we host many events, a small vegetarian cafe where we serve breakfast daily as well as weekly family-style dinners and cooking classes, and a cozy lounge for reading and socializing.
The Beehive is also an extension of who we are.
As 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 a decade. We use eco-friendly cleaning products, recycle, use LED lighting, recycled toilet paper, hand towels & napkins, host clothing & book swaps, and much more.
