This happening hostel with a social buzz offers both private and dormitory-style accommodations for a good price.
Pros: Fun vibe. Breakfast and Wi-Fi included.
Cons: Very basic accommodations.
The Freedom Traveller is a hostel’s hostel, replete with a very social vibe and regular pizza parties. Accommodations here are the barest of bones, but the price is right for the unfussy traveler who just wants a central crash pad. In addition to dorms, which sleep four or six people, the Freedom Traveller also offers private singles, doubles and triples. Furniture is a grab bag, and these are certainly not the best looking rooms in Rome, but they are outfitted with air conditioning. Dorms offer security lockers and the private rooms have a television.
Some of the privates and four-bed dorms have private bathrooms, while other rooms share facilities. Private or shared, the bathrooms are basic. Towels are provided for the private rooms, while dorm guests can rent a towel for €2.
The Freedom Traveller is definitely a backpacker spot. It hosts free pizza and wine parties every Monday and Thursday (6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.), and every night but Saturday guests can purchase a pasta dinner (including a glass of wine) for only €5. There is also a guest kitchen, backyard garden and book exchange.
A small breakfast (coffee and croissants) is included in the room rate. Wi-Fi is free throughout, and the hostel also has a free Internet station.

About the Freedom Traveller neighborhood
The largely residential area north of Stazione Centrale Termini is both convenient and affordable. Trains heading to Fumincino airport and across Italy depart from this massive station, the front of which is also a major bus and metro stop. Although not the most picturesque neighborhood in central Rome, lots of hotel competition can often mean good rates. The area is always crowded and sometimes a little seedy.
