If someone is looking for a small, relaxed, family-type environment - then this would be the place for them. While we don't live on the premises, The Beehive is our home. We want our guests to feel like they are staying in the home of a friend in Rome. We start out trusting and respecting everyone who walks through our doors and we hope you will trust and respect us and our place in return. We are not a party hostel, but we are sociable and while we are not always around, we are always accessible. We like to provide great information (or the tools to get that information) to our guests and a cozy, clean and peaceful atmosphere. We are currently not fully operational due to the Covid-19 crisis and so are looking for someone who needs a place to live in exchange for reception, caretaking and cleaning help and giving us a helping hand and once we do have guests to put together social activities and spend time with guests.
My husband and I are Americans who moved to Rome 20+ years ago and started our hostel, The Beehive. We own and operate the business ourselves along with our long-time staff member and manager, Yuli. We do have a cleaning person, Lea, but she does not work on weekends. My husband and I are friendly and informal but we are professional and take what we do seriously and we are very protective of our hostel.
The experience at Beehive Hostel has been very enriching. From the first day I arrived they made me feel at home, everything is very flexible, the tasks are easy and the place is super quiet (they also have a wonderful garden). But the best of all is the people there, both the guests who stay there and the staff members. Yuli has been very patient and above all very kind, Lea makes your day with her "Buongiorno"! and the owners, Steve and Linda, deserve a special mention, they have been amazing hosts and I learned how to make fresh pasta!
I would definitely choose them again :)

Beehive is the perfect cozy Hostel everybody needs to stay when in Rome, the tasks were so easy and in exchange I had a beautiful room and a lot of time to explore Rome, so I feel very grateful.
Even during Covid Time I met some cool guests.
