As well as the Top Rated La Controra Hostel Naples, La Controra Hostel Rome will be the best hub to discover the Eternal City.

La Controra is a concept: not only travellers but also artists, designers and musicians choose it to perform in both Naples and Rome.

Design factory yet economic property, La Controra Hostel Rome is located in the centre of the centre: Repubblica on one hand, Barberini, Villa Borghese and the Spanish Steps on the other, this smart 18th century building will make you feel like Mastroianni in La Dolce Vita.

Privates or dorms: no difference when the common denominator is that of a new and clean property where you meet all other backpackers as well as the Neapolitan oriented staff.

Tv in every room, possibility to listen to your music with any kind of cables, free Wi-Fi in rooms: our warm and friendly staff will make your stay an unforgettable travel experience!


When you arrive in Rome Ciampino Airport, there will be buses outside leading you directly to Rome Termini Central Station.

If you are arriving to Rome Fiumicino Airport, please take the train which will lead you to Rome Termini Central Station.

From the station you get La Controra basically going straight from one to the other point.
So walk toward Piazza della Repubblica, keep straight on Via Vittorio Emanuele Orlando ((left side of the fork) to Largo di Santa Susanna, you'd find the Moses with four lions in the Acqua Felice fountain: beware not to take Via Bissolati, simply walk straight to Via Umbria 7.

La Controra Hostel is located in Via Umbria 7, within 10 minutes walk from Termini Station, or 3 minutes from the Repubblica metro stop (1 stop from Termini).
Exit the main doors of the station, walking past the city buses, and go straight towards Piazza Della Republica, a roundabout with a large fountain.
Keep going straight (do not go down the hill!) until you reach “Fontana dell’acqua felice” (the fountain with Moses and the four lions), which will be on your right.
Look in front of you: you will see a big sign on the top of a building saying CARIGE. Via Umbria is the first road on the right side of that building, and behind the American Embassy (you can take it as a reference).
La Controra entrance is on the right-hand side of via Umbria - there is a sign on the wall.
Please, ring the doorbell!

Follow the signs for “AI TRENI”. At the platform, buy a ticket for the non-stop train Leonardo Express to Termini Station (14 Euros).
You can buy tickets from either the ticket window, the vending machines or the tobacco store near the tracks.
Once arrived at Termini Station, follow the directions as mentioned above.
You can also take a taxi. The cost is 48 Euros (fixed rate set by the City of Rome).

Take a Bus Shuttle for Termini Station. There are several companies operating, like Sit Bus Shuttle and Terravision. The ticket costs 5-6 Euros.
Once arrived at Termini Station, follow the directions as mentioned above.
You can also take a taxi. The cost is 30 Euros (fixed rate set by the City of Rome).

Located Near

Less than 10 minutes walking from Termini Station (Rome's main railway station), less than 5 from Metro stop Repubblica, La Controra is also within walking distance from the city centre and its main sights and liveliest areas, while being in a very quiet and safe neighbourhood.
We are at a 5-to-15 minutes walk from Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Villa Borghese, Piazza Barberini (Metro), Baths of Diocletian, Santa Maria della Vittoria Church (Ecstasy of Saint Teresa sculpture) and more!
