This thread is marked as being about Italy

Well, cheap is a relative term. What's cheap for one may not be cheap for another. It'll be helpful to specify your budget so that others know what to recommend you. In the mean time, check out the list of budget accommodation in Rome. :)

Well, Rome isn't an expensive city to begin with. There are many hostels that are around 10 EUR per night and it is not impossible to find a hotel room cheap, especially in November.

But if you want it very cheap you might want to check out Plus Camping Roma. They have Bungalows for rent. More private than a hostel dorm for the same price, plus it is easy to self-cater. Last year they had a special offer (50% off) for anybody staying longer than 3 nights after Nov 15th, it was a very good deal.

The Yellow Hostel in Rome near Termini was not necessarily cheap, but decent price in a great location.

I'd like to know about some of Maia's 10-euro-places; I've been to Rome often, and last time I saw something at that price level must have been over 5 years ago.

I can recommend two hotels from recent experience (last month): Hotel Max (via Gioberti, 200 mts from Termini) charges 70 euros for a double, and Hotel Felice (via Tiburtina, 15 minutes on foot from Termini, but in the opposite direction from most tourist sights), which charges 55 euros for a double. Both were clean, quiet and pleasant.

The Beehive in November is 20 euro for the dorm. I stayed there last July and really liked it. It's near the Termini so you have all the trains, subway, taxis and buses you could ever need and the station itself has many cheap places to eat. You can also get simple meals in there that are very reasonable. Free computer time to get on the internet, too.

Well, I admit that I wasn't looking too closely at the prices for hostel beds. I was cycle touring and had my tent with me, so I stayed at the above camping site when I was there. But cycling around the city I saw a number of adverts for hostel beds, usually in the 10-15 EUR price range. It surprised me because I had expected Rome to be much more expensive, on a level with Paris or London. Could have been that the signs were outdated or that I was in places that were a bit further away from the city, thus making things cheaper.

There are also usually some package deals in November where you get a flight and a stay for 3-5 days at a 2-3 star hotel. (At least there are from Germany, I assume it is the same for the UK and some other countries.) I did the math a few times, cost for accomodation in these package deals usually worked out to about 25-35 EUR per person per night, including breakfast. But what these adverts didn't tell was the location of these cheap hotels, so they could have been quite far out.

Rome can be as expensive as London or Paris - if you'd like it to be, but as a Western Europe capital city - it has endless bargains too - difficult to find on such a scale anywhere else, except in (maybe) Amsterdam.

I've stayed at the Hotel Regno in Rome. It won't necessarily be cheap, but the location is grand. A small hotel, clean, nicely furnished with good breakfast. We walked to many sites. I'd google it and then try to find a 'deal' on a travel site.

Thanks all for the input.

Looks like I will have to do my research!
