Don't talk to strangers if you are a female. I met two Italian men in Roma who helped me to find the way at first and kept on taking advantage of me afterwards!
Rome is a fantastic, brilliant city but one that, like most large and popular cities, offers traps for the unwary. There are lots of pickpockets (and they are very good at their jobs), but just pay attention and don't flaunt your valuables. On the plus side, Rome has a very low serious crime rate for such a large city and is generally safe (with all the usual provisos). You can also be ripped off (however, not as badly as I've been ripped off in London, Paris, or New York) and pay too much for bad food but that is usually only if you eat at tourist spots and don't wander off the tourist path (it doesn't take much wandering -- usually just a street away). Eat at local places, drink your coffee standing up, and generally try to get the feel of the place and you will have a much much better time. People are not mean or pushy, but nor will they fawn and grovel at your feet -- Italians (Romans especially, who can be a bit old fashioned) people respond to politeness and attempts to at…
Read the reviews and comments on here before you pick a hostel. Roma has more than its fair share of duds when it comes to hostels.
Rome is a fantastic city to live in, but from a tourist perspective -- especially if you aren't comfortable with a city that is as chaotic as Rome -- it might not be so great. I myself hated Rome the first time I visited, but came back and looked at things from a new perspective and saw all the great things it has to offer, and now live here. There are also numerous opportunities to meet people from all over the world all over the city if you are social and talk to people. The Spanish steps are a great place for tourists to hang out, listen to some locals play the guitar and sing, and meet new people. Rome is not a dangerous city if you don't make yourself a target. That means not wandering around with a map in your hand or wearing obviously touristy clothing (fanny packs for instance). Also, attempt to have an air of confidence about where you are even if you're totally lost. You can still ask for directions, but don't make it obvious that you're lost. As far as Romans not being…
Most hostels in Roma are located near the train station. It's a very touristy area, but it's a reasionably central area in the city and it's nice to be able to walk directly to your hostel from the train station. If you stay somewhere not near the train station, there's also a metro stop at the train station, so you can usually get to your hostel that way.
Roma was just amazing. It was on my list of must-see cities, and it fulfilled every expectation. The usual tourist haunts should be visited and won't disappoint -- Trevi Fountain, Colosseo, and Vatican City. For something a little more off the crowded track, try Appia Antica, the ancient acquaduct, and the catacombs. We took the "Archeo-bus" out there and loved it. It ended up being our favorite day. Maybe we got lucky, but everything we ate was awesome! The food was so good. Just try to find something a little off the tourist track and you won't be disappointed. The pizza was outstanding and so cheap. Picnics were great too -- just find a deli and order some meat and cheese. Overall, everyone should visit Rome -- you won't regret seeing the "Eternal City."
