The Pensione Ottaviano Hostel is the longest running hostel in Rome. Established in 1956, we have seen generations of backpackers. Since the hostel opened it has been recommended in the main guide books of the world and we suppose there is a reason for that!
The hostel is located in a pleasant, quiet area, only a short walk from St. Peter's Square. From our windows there is a view of the Dome. It is a clean, budget wise place to crash close to the Vatican and several other main sights with several transport options available.
The hostel is easily accessed from Termini Central Station, just a few stops on the Metro (Line A) and from the airport.
