My wife was a bit skeptical when I told her I booked a room in a hostel, but she was absolutely delighted when she saw our room in "The Sweets." The Sweets are charming and very comfortable. Our room was large, the wi-if was fast, and there was plenty of hot water in our bathroom. As a bonus, our room...

The Beehive is just a stone's throw from Roma Termini; a perfect location, not only convenient to the train, but within walking distance of countless major sites. Steve welcomed us warmly on arrival, explained everything from the in-house laundry to the café. We were accommodated at the annex (HotelUrbe) on our 2nd night, (the Beehive was already completely booked when...

Great hostel. In easy reach of the main train station. Friendly staff, very clean and great facilities (including a great little lounge and cafe to buy breakfast). Would happily stay again if back in Rome.

Our overnight stay in Room #3, a queen/private bathroom was a delight. The Staff is friendly and helpful about sites to see, the location is central/perfect, accommodations are clean, modern, and very comfortable.

A fantastic hostel! Would definitely recommend and will definitely stay here again given the chance. Location: About 2 minutes walk away from the Termini train station. Trains running straight from the airport too. If you don't mind a little walking you can get to just about all of the main sites in Rome from here. About 20-25 minutes walk to...

The staff at The Beehive went out of their way to make my stay fantastic. Not only was the hostel clean and warm, the manager Yuli gave me great recommendations on places to eat, helped me reserve a place at major tourist sites and even unlock my phone! Would definitely recommend for your stay in Rome :)

Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable and were pleasantly surprised that there was a little cafe for breakfast. The ladies working there were all so nice and helpful. We had a beautiful stay and will definitely be back next time we're in Rome!!!

Highly recommend.:-) I will definitely be back at the Hive! The staff was helpful and creative with the recommendations and the room was perfect for the purpose. If you are looking for something practical and extremely close to Termini station, go no further!

I came for the Women's March and decided last minute to spend the night in Rome to attend a storytelling event at the Beehive.

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Beehive is a cool, stylish, eco-friendly budget hostel/hotel owned by an American couple, Linda & Steve, who came to Rome to follow a dream. In 1999 we packed up our apartment in Los Angeles and, along with our 2 cats moved to Rome and opened The Beehive, a unique cross between a budget hotel and an upscale hostel - a place where you can feel at home. Everything about The Beehive reflects our own personal values and we genuinely want to be helpful and hospitable. We love to share the kind of information that helps you get the most out of your travels. Over the years The Beehive has evolved along with us and our many repeat guests. With our amazing onsite staff and manager, all of our guests receive our dedication and effort to helping you get the best out of your holiday. As always, we want you to know you have a safe haven and friends in Rome. ... more   less
