Best Hostels and Cheap Places to Stay in Rome

Spread the love

Rome is one of the most beautiful and at the same time expensive cities in the world. There are many hostels as in any other touristic city. But in comparing with hotels, hostels are mostly popular among people younger than 30 years old. Prices vary according to the location, so be ready to spend 1-1.5 hours on public transport to reach the cheapest hostel or to live with many other tourists in the city center, but with extra payment.
