My sister and I stayed 4 nights here and it was great. I love Trastevere so the location was perfect and the service was wonderful. I would recommend this hostel to any woman looking to stay in a clean, friendly place while visiting Rome.

This hostel is excellent with such low prices. I stayed in a 9-bed room, but the room was separated in half so I in fact felt that I only had to share it with 3 other girls. The room itself was very spacious, and each person had her own locker with clothes hangers. Breakfast was good with bread, jam, butter,... More

I like to stay in quiet places and when looking for hostels, I usually avoid those in which a good party is guaranteed. I have had a hard time finding a place to stay in Rome, as most options within my allocated budget are youth hostels and are located near Termini, an area I'm not particularly fond of. As I... More

A simple, beautiful and quiet place, very conveniently located. The women in charge were extremely helpful and accommodating, even after I made a mistake with my booked dates. The projects that they are working on are worth learning about!

Great location in Trastavere, close to Saint Peters Basilica and the restaurants and night life of the area. Housed in a beautiful old convent, this is also a womens center which supports some very good causes. Would be nice if breakfast's were not served with disposable everything however. The flimsy nature of the plastic plates and cutlery makes you doubt... More

This hostel is very clean, staff friendly. Single beds in dorms with bedside table and big locker for each guest. Free internet on two computers. Free breakfast also. This hostel is in a great location, close to the Vatican. Fabulous restaurants a 5/10 minute walk away with plenty to choose from. Only two negatives from my stay, which were minor:... More

The accomodation was great, a big and bright room. The breakfast was also very good, I enjoyed a lot. The fact they only take women in is great, because it's quiet and organized. It was very weel located, near Trastevere and Gianiccolo, from where you have the geatest view of all Rome. Oh how I miss it now I'm writing... More

The women at the front desk were extremely helpful when we checked in, the told us what we needed to see, where to eat, nearest grocery stores. Rooms were nice and spacious. It's very quiet and we could lounge around and look up our next activities. Breakfast was wonderful and I like the option of having the kitchen available to... More

This was a great place to stay. Most people kept to themselves so it was very quiet and I always felt comfortable and safe. The staff were generally very helpful and the breakfast is light and fresh with great coffee. The location was very close to restaurants and bars so as a solo traveller I felt happy walking out at...

My stay at Orsa Maggiore has been amazing. I booked this place at the last minute, and the girls at the desk were extremely helpful and responsive by email address. The place is really lovely to stay at – there’s a feeling of safety and homeliness. The bedrooms are clean and tidy, and you are given plenty of space including... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
