The Billabong Reviews


The Billabong hostel is situated in the hearth of the University of Rome. The Metro line B will take you to Colosseum in only 8-9 minutes and you can walk to the Metro in a wee bit. The neighborough is well worthy for who's looking for a cheap bars, restaurants and pizza, including nightlife as well since night buses run from Colosseum the all night long.

On the other side you can start visiting Rome by seeing San Paolo Basilica 'Fuori le mura' - walking distance - and then Piramide Caio Cestio, Circo Massimo, Colosseum, stop by stop by using the same Metro (B line). By the way you can reach the Vatican within seven subway stops.

The simple and modern furnishings and the friendly young staff make Billabong the right place to spend your holiday or your business trip.
The reception is always open to meet the customers' requirements, free maps of the city, check in and check out very quick and there is no curfew!

One bathroom every 4 people, a shared modern kitchen and wireless internet access in the room.

If you are interested we also have a connection with one of the most interesting clubs in Rome that shows all International Sports from around the world. So it's easy for you to watch your game and if you want fun at night we suggest to join Spanish steps or Colosseum pub crawl with us.
From the FCO airport we are only 40 minutes away and we provide shuttle to and from the airport on your request, remember that we provide bikes a your request!
