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. If you're looking for a small, friendly, informal and relaxed environment - then ours is the place for you! While we don't live on the premises, The Beehive is our home and we want you to feel like you are staying in the home of a friend. 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 you can relax at anytime of the day and where we host many events and there's our cozy lounge for reading and socializing..
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, act 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.
