I will arrive in Rome at night and I figured once I'm done checking-in in the hotel it'll be past 22h. My hotel is close to Termini to (between termini and castro pretorio stations) and I wanted some advice on where to go to eat, relax and drink something without having to take the metro or a cab to other parts of the city. We're two late-20s women.

22h is pretty late. Where you can go depends on what day you'll arrive. Will it be during the week, the weekend or Sunday? You may be able to catch one of the McDonalds (yeah, unfortunate). Though there are plenty of small pizza/sandwich shops in the area that may be open. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
i suggest you to move in trastevere or centre of rome. Although you have to take a taxi in this way you can choose between a lot or restaurant and bar.
since you are close to the railroad station...make your way to the Via Veneto short distance and there you will find coffee shops and late night snacks.
I agree with Daisan: Trastevere is your best bet for food that late at night, plus it's a really nice area. Testaccio is also a good choice.
No need to go far or worry!
I am from Rome, and we never go to the restaurant before 9 pm, so 10 pm is exactly when you start! you'll have the time to go to your hotel, check in, and go for dinner in one of the many nice restaurants in the area at walking distance!
Termini station are, aspecially where you will be staying, is full of hotels of all size, from pensions to luxury, and there is always people walking around! Don't worry!
You can even take a little longer walking towards Santa Maria Maggiore, opposite site of the train station, and admire it at night, have a great icecream, and find plenty of nice restaurants and wine barswhere also Italians go!
