To find this place was pure coincidence as we booked it off a whim, and the great reviews. An incredible find and literally made our stay at Rome. If you've found this place and there's availability, book it. We wouldn't have discovered the "real" Rome otherwise. Travelling as two young girls, safety and advice are key. We were met with...

Stayed at The Ape Latina last July. The location is wonderful, if you walk just 5 minutes through a park you come to the Colosseum and Forum/Palatine Hill. The rooms are of a good quality with comfy beds and clean, with one bedroom with an ensuite room and 2 rooms sharing one bathroom which being a student was no problem!...

BE WARNED!!! If you book here, you don't actually stay here. I booked a few nights at this HOSTEL but like many other people who have written comments on this site, I showed up to the front door of this DUMP looking apartment building, where I waited for OVER 2 hours until somebody finally showed up and told me that...

Ape Latina was amazing for the price! We had a huge room & comfortable bed. There were other people staying but we never had to wait to use the bathroom. Had a nice kitchen/bar area to fix food and eat at. Very clean & safe! I was with my husband but would stay there alone without any hesitations! The neighborhood...

After a disaster trying to find the place ( the 'new address' you are told to go to from the website is infact not the correct address) we arrived really annoyed that we had wasted so much time stuffing around. But franchesca was so lovely that we couldn't stay mad. The place is really clean and retro. The rooms are...

Boyfriend and I stayed here for a week over new years. Paid 440 euro for 7 nights. More expensive in the new year period. This is not actually a hostel, but an apartment. The owner/s are never here, literally. You get your own set of keys upon arrival and come and go as you please. Be sure to advise which...

We were a little unsure of the location at first but once we found it we were very impressed! For 15 euro a night in Rome, excellent proximity to the metro, walkable to Colosseum, helpful staff. One of the women who owns it, Francesca, was very helpful! Had great tips and ideas for things to do. She told us about...

We made reservations for a double room with a shared bathroom in Ape Latina. Before leaving for Rome, we wrote 2 email messages to make sure someone would be waiting to greet us at Ape Latina.

After much deliberation on the internet we chose Ape Latina and it was a shock when we finally arrived at the hotel. The room had two different height single beds pushed together and was anything but clean. The bathroom was just as dirty and the plug in the shower was blocked. My partner had to pull out a dreadlock of...

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
