Modern accommodation for women travelers in Rome


Our small accommodation is a clean, comfortable and well located place where, after a strenuous day sightseeing in the eternal city, you can sit back and relax.

We are located on the first floor of a residential 19th century building, surrounded by restaurants, supermarkets and laundromats, few minutes walk from the main station Termini and not far from the main tourist attractions.

In our cosy guesthouse you can truly feel at home: enjoy the comfort of cooking your own meals in our spacious and colourful kitchen, sit on the couch and watch TV or read in our common area , chat with the other guests.

The nicely decorated terrace is the perfect place to put your feet up and relax with a glass of wine or a cup of tea.

We prepare a small breakfast in the morning and we are there for you to provide you with any information you may need, insuring your time with us is enjoyable.

What our guests say about us

Had a great stay at Hostella! The staff are so friendly, kind and helpful. The hostel is a 5 minute walk from the main train station
and close enough to walk to the many sights of Rome. There is also a great sandwich shop nearby. There were no bunk beds which was great. It’s a great hostel to meet other people in.


Very quiet hostel within easy walking distance of the Termini in Rome. Easy to pass the entrance the first time because there is just a small sign above the doorway. The two women working the reception were both very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were clean and quiet. Only had small lockers for valuable not large ones for your entire luggage. Would definitely return. 


Great location and kitchen/common area. Room was warm during our 3 days in February. Everything worked well. There are no
lifts up to the first floor, but that was not a problem for me. 2.5 bathrooms which adequately serviced everyone who was staying there. The heater in our room ticks, but that wasn't a problem for me either.


El personal muy amable! Muy satisfecha con mi estancia.




성비가 괜찮다고 생각합니다. 다만 계단이 있어 캐리어를 끌고 올라가는 것이 힘들다는 것을 제외하고는 전반적으로 만족스러웠습니다. 직원들도 영어 잘하고 매우 친절합니다!!

Lovely hostel 5 minutes from Termini station and with easy acess to the main sites. The staff are very nice. There are pastries and tea all day for free. There are safes in the rooms and a little bed side table for everyone. The hostel is a bit tricky to spot at first, look for a big wooden door. 


Bed, bath room and everything is clean. Atmosphere is good. They provided tea, coffee, fruits and light breakfast, so it's very nice to enjoy a cup of tea and chat with the room mate in the living area.
