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. Our common areas include our courtyard garden where you can relax at any time of the day and where we host many events. There's also our cozy living room for reading, working or socializing and 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.

We're a small hostel - no large groups accepted


The Beehive is us

We're environmentalists, social justice activists and vegetarians. We 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 have hosted clothing & book swaps, have acted as a drop-off point for donations to homeless organizations, promote sustainable travel and buying from and supporting local businesses to name a few things we do and have done.

The Beehive App

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.
