This hostel have pretty amazing location, but don't expect any comfort. Except one huge silverfish i didn't notice any bugs, so it seems that this problem was solved (or there are no bugs during winter). Some fruits and cheap packed croissants were good for breakfast, but kettle was so messed up so i couldn't even make a tea in the... More

Bugs, everywhere! At least 130 we killed. Avoid this place, however the owner Francesca is probably a nice person, she doesn t really know how to deal with her badly infected hostel. She tried to do her best by using a spray, but everyday again we found bugs:behind paintings on the wall, in the frame of the bed, in the... More

My wife and I have been traveling for months and staying in mostly hostels. Hostels in Rome had mixed reviews and were all overpriced. We decided on Ape Latina because we could get our own private room at a cheaper rate that what we would have paid for 2 dorm beds in some locations. It is only a 5-10min walk... More

We stayed in Ape Latina in April 2013. Very friendly owners made our stay the most pleasant and comfortable with assisting us in best places to go and best places to eat. Rooms were clean and nice, equipped with all you need. It is really close to Coliseum so location is perfect. For the reasonable price you have even more... More

LOVED IT! =) We went there for 5 days in October and it was sooo nice. The apartment is clean, our room was very nice and cozy. The host Francesca is such a sweet person and always willing to help you with good advice about the must see places in Rome and also the best pizzerias and ice-cream shops =).... More

Showed up to the front door and was greeted so kindly by Francesca. she showed us a map and gave us great tips of the city. she brought us fruit to our room to welcome us. That made my whole stay worth while. The room was spacious and clean and had a private bathroom. Would definitely recommend it. So close... More

What's good about this place? Lets see - the location, the price, the cleanliness, and Francesca the host. She will tell you everything that you need to know about Rome. Just trust her recommendations (especially when it comes to food) and you will not go wrong. Her place is also located in a nice residential neighborhood near the colloseum so... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Ape Latina and could not fault it. Francessca and Andrea's hospitality and recommendations were fantastic. The rooms were clean and comfortable and in a great location. If anyone is heading to Rome I would not hesitate in booking a room at Ape Latina.

When we arrived we were in the big room as it was vacant, we checked in late but Francesca waited for us and gave us a lot of information about Rome. The room was decorated very beautifully, it felt very comfortable and cosy. The shower and hairdryer were to die for, probably the cleanest i felt the whole trip so... More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
