Hi all!

I'm planning a visit to Rome with my girlfriend in June, and first of all I'm looking for a hostel nice to stay..

Is there any one that you can suggest, which offers double bed less than 30€ per night?

Otherwise, is there any dorm style about 20€? I can check it on hostelworld of course, but I don't understand the locations..

I'll stay for 3 days in Rome and planning to see main buildings in Rome and Vatican... how much is the daily transportation ticket in there? can I use my student card in there too? or is there a youth discount?

and also, is there any good beach close to Rome? how far is it? it shouldn't be full of rock like Nice... it should be full of sand like Miami USA, or Antalya Turkey...

btw, I'm mainly intresting with the soul of the cities, architecture and eating local foods.. so if you've any advices for a student budget of course, you're welcome to say...

thank you in advance!!!

Just a few things than might help you:

1) Double bed room for less than 55€ per room in Rome (in a good location even more) it'll be difficult to get.

2) Dorms in hostels are around 18/20€ per person per night.

3) Pretty close to Rome you have Civitavecchia, where you can find sandy beaches. It's not a marvellous area, but might do it.

Besides that, and of course depending of the total amount of time you have and things you plan to see, I would strongly consider to stay more than 3 days in Rome. It's a really marvellous place that deserves for sure more than that.

Hope it helped! ;)

Hi Dem! Thank you very much for your answer!!

I've searched a little bit, and found these pictures about that beach..

and seems not so clean to me =) may be just because of I'm realy used to the ones in my country like that...

btw, I really don't like to see the museums =) may be I'm an art enemy =)) so the point is, do you still think that a 3 days holiday is not enough for Rome, to see the city, eat & drink, intresting with architecture..?

if you've visited Berlin before, I've complated that city including some suburbal areas only in 3 days!! may be you can compare...

also I've decide to see the Florance as well after I've read this topic..

but according to my plan, I've decided to go Rome from Venice by a night train between 00.oo-06.oo and now I have to stay one more extra night in a hostel because of that!! =)

the other question for the italian people is, I've found the train tickets from milan to venice for 32€ but my friend said that she always buy it for 12.5€!!! ..don't know why...

the last thing is...
(as you see we meet at milan bcs of it's the only low-cost flight detination from istanbul, and follow venice, [florance] and roma route..) after Rome, I'll go to Paris... I've found a train ticket from Rome to Paris for 35€ but it takes about 14 hours =) the advantage comparing easy jet is, we don't have to pay for airport-city transfer and, we save one night instead of stay in a hostel... otherwise easyjet has the same price...

do you have any suggestion for the way to go Paris, or for a new meeting point except Milan, which has a low cost flights from istanbul...?

now that's al, I'm sorry to consume your time.. but if you've any information about istanbul and copenhagen, you can ask as well..

ciao, and gradze!! (hope it's correct form)

My travel pace is like yours with seeing things very quickly, but their is no way you'll be seeing Rome properly in 3 days even if you ran half your time. I walked for a total of 40 hours in 3 days and still didn't see everything.

Stay in Yellow Hostel, near Termini train station. I have spent 29 nights in the hostel on 5 different trips to Rome and would never even consider staying at another hostel. They were voted 5th best hostel in the world in 2005 and have recently undergone a renovation that made the place a Hostel Heaven. free internet 24/7, great rooms, really cheap, the best staff in the whole world, best pub crawl- Romeing Tours- you gotta go on it-free booze at 4 different bars/clubs all in one night!, all around best hostel i have stayed at yet.

You can try searching at Cross-Pollinate, else The Beehive offers dorms. I didnt stay at the Beehive, but we went to pick up our keys there and it looked clean and really pretty. They have cats, though, in case you're allergic.

i stayed at the beehive and it was sooooooo good! i cant imagine a better hostel to stay in! it was so clean and fresh and modern. i stayed in a double room there- was a bit more expesive than i wouldve liked but its worth it. the termini area isnt very nice but the side we were on was hepas nicer than the otrher side which was dirty and run down...its only 5 minutes opposite the station too which is handy!
