Get to know Rome (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel.

 Hostels Rome Italy

Rome, also known as the Eternal City, is the capital of beautiful Italy.

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.

It's a super busy with a LOT to see, so make sure you book in advance and spend at least a few days here.

All things Hostels Rome

The majority of the hostels in Rome are clustered around the main Roma Termini train station. These are labeled on as “Near Termini”. The area is so dense that there will often be multiple hostels located in the same building.

The neighborhood surrounding Termini station is touristy and unimpressive, but it does make for a convenient central base for exploring the city centre (plus hotspots like Santa Maria Maggiore), especially since both of the Rome metro lines also intersect at Termini and most bus routes also connect there.

When you're wondering where to stay in Rome, we recommend the Termini area for convenience.

Piazza Bologna is another good spot, not too far away from Termini. A good hostel here is Youth Station Hostel.

Roma Tiburtina is the second-largest train station with good connections to the city. We recommend Roma Scout Center in this area.
