good for camping Oct 13, 2013
This is a good hostel/camp if you're traveling with friends or family as it has a nice pool area to hang out at it with deck chairs also has a good bar that has different themes every night.

The rooms are really basic. the room I stayed in had a bunk bed and there wasn't much more room to put your bags. They had to go under the bed. I felt that the rooms hadn't been cleaned well and we're dirty.

The location is really bad. There is not much around the area and takes about 45 minutes to get into the city. However they do have shuttle buses that run regularly.

There were alot of tour buses that were staying there at the same time. Mostly contiki so it can get noisy at night and they don't do much to control the noise.

I wouldn't stay here again because it was too far from the city center for me however if you enjoy staying at a campsite or have your own transport this might be a good option

THE PLACE TOO BE Mar 21, 2013
I loved my time at Camping Roma! They have so many great things for all ages! I stayed in Cabins for 2 people.. can fit 3 tho as there were 3 beds!

Im young so I think the one thing I loved most about Camping Roma was their bar!! They have the coolest parties! I went to a traffic light party and a toga party the two nights I were there! They have awesome deals on alcohol and drinks and it just an awesome time out! Pretty much like your at a club!! Was a lot of fun!

The place has awesome facilities... had two pools and a spa, laundry, its own shopping store! was really cool!

Recommended to go... if you're young.. you'll have an awesome time and meet people so easily! There were families there as well.. so please don't be pushed away by what I have said if you're a family.. Im young and look at things in a different insight!

A great village! Sep 02, 2011
Camping Village in Rome is a really well organized village that offers everything a tourist can need. Is located in a hill, near the Vatican City and well served by buses for the center, train station and airport. The Camping Village provides shuttle service to Fiumicino and Campino airport and another one to the Vatican City. They also offer guided tours to Rome by night.

In this village you can choose to sleep in bungalows, in tends or if you have your tend there are open spaces where to open it. In the camping you can find swimming pools – unfortunately not deep – two Jacuzzi; table tennis; supermarket (is better the one out of the village because the prices are much more convenient :-) ); clean showers and toilets; restaurant; internet point; laundry; luggage deposit; disco pub; volley – play ground; summer bar and of course an information point where you have to do the check in and the check out.

I had to sleep in a tend because I decided to go just a few days before so there were no more free bungalows. Anyway, tends were really comfortable – better than expected – with three beds, clean sheets and a blanket because it was really cold at night (even if it was august). Of course there was not a bathroom inside and that was the reason I wanted a bungalow, but the common bathrooms were cleaned too!

The staff is really gently, they speak different languages so no one will have problems in communication.

Camping Village Roma May 24, 2011
Camping Village Roma is near Vatican City, about 3 Km, and it's the only campsite nearest Rome center. To get in to the center, you just have to pick up the bus to the Cornelia subway station, line A. If you want to go Vatican City just pick up the right bus that will leave you right in front of Vatican Museum.

The campsite is fine! I went there in August, there were a lot of foreign young people, that just want to party all the time and the the campsite just provide that :) The bungalows are very confortable, I stayed in a bungalow for 2 persons. The only thing that wasn't cool, was the fact that there wasn't hot water...The staff said that were a lot of people in the campsite to provide hot water to everyone, but I think that this just happen in every campsite at the peak season.

Basically the campsite offers you a market (there is one outside de campsite too), a restaurant of italian food, a nice pool with bar, laundry and a bar that is open till 3 a.m.

If you want to relax, maybe this isn't the right choice, cause young people just want to get fun on the summer :)

Tiny Jun 08, 2011
First of all, this place is located FAR FAR away from the center of Rome. You have to take a metro to the stop called "Cornelia" and then take the bus number 246 to reach the camping village. That is a good one hour from the center of Rome at least. Also, the metro line stops at 9:00 p.m. and the buses stop at midnight so if you're looking for a night out, prepare to sleep on the street or pay 90 Euros for a cab to get back.

The tiny bungalows are basically tin trailer sheds kind of things which are quite small. They though are quite clean and well fitted with lights, a nice clean bathroom, three beds and a table. For 45 Euros a night, I thought this was a wee bit expensive but for only two nights, it wasn't much of a pain.

It though is quite crowded and is full of tourists. If you would like to meet new people, maybe this is a good place. If you need peace and quiet, maybe not.

The wireless internet access is free but is only available in very select locations within the campus. Those areas are usually full and you might end up sitting on the steps or in the corridor trying to use the internet.

They asked us to leave our stuff at the information desk because they didnt have a new room clean for us. When we came back from our day out at midnight, they told us that the information desk was closed and I couldn't get my bags. After a reasonable argument, they agreed to open the information desk and let us take our bags...all they needed to do was just open one door. I don't know why they made a big fuss of all that. This adds up to spell BAD SERVICE.

All in all, a decent place to stay if you're stuck without anything else closer to the center and a decent place if you want to hook up with new people but for a general traveller, I would not recommend this place at all.

Cheap Camp Grounds in Rome the way to go Jun 06, 2011
This plus camping ground is great. Sheets and towels are included in the price. The place has a lot of free wifi points (although don't try to skype anyone, it never works). If you need faster wifi this might not be the place for you.

Everything else is great, they have 2 pools, a bar, restaurant, supermarket. They throw regular parties at the bar and even had a line band playing at the pool one night I was there.

It's by far the cheapest accomodation you will get in Rome, I wish I had spent all my time in Rome there due to the price and its fun. Nothing like a dip in the pool after a hard day sightseeing.

Great campsite! Mar 12, 2011
Lovely campsite, a short walk from Aurelia train station. Nice big swimming pool, also WiFi available free on site. Cost is very reasonable. However, if you want to camp there (as supposed to renting a three-person bungalow), the ground is not very good. It's rather hard in places, and there is not that much grass. The campsite is secure, and there is a nice shop, a restaurant and even a night club on site, with lots of young people around! Had a great three days there :) Would highly reccommend it, but i would reccommend using the air-conditioned bungalos, not camping (as i did)! Also, trips are organised to Vatican City every day, you can just take a minibus there, very cheap!! It's like 2 Euros! All in all, very good :)

Great place and lots of fun. Aug 24, 2010
We were looking for something fairly inexpensive in Rome... which doesn't happen. Stumbled upon this place and it was great. Outside of Rome, which was great because we had a car with us and parking was included. Driving in Rome is not fun. Easy access to large shower building, Internet, cafe, pizza, ice cream and there is loads going on. It was a little loud at night, but so no much that we couldn't sleep. We stayed in a platform tent with two beds which was perfect as all we wanted to do after a long day was get some food and crash. Easy access to Rome via inexpensive public transit. Would def stay here again!!! (Especially if we had a car.)

Great place to stay Dec 11, 2009
Well again, we were there in a relatively quiet time of year. But the site itself is pretty cool. There were two resturants to eat at that you have to put money down on a card in order to purchase food or drink. But all of it was at a reasonable price. We stayed in a private tent and it was a good price for two of us. Although very close to other tents... so yes you hear the girls gossiping... and the couple "making up" after a fight... or just having fun. haha this was honest to god quiet awkward and funny. Easy walking distance to the pool, resturants and front desk.

A little bit unorganization at the tourist desk with bookings and getting on the shuttle bus to the city... But everything worked out.

Easy transporation to the hostel from the main trainstation... but it does take awhile.

Again a big hostel, lots of room and potential for big parties and alot of fun!!!
The tents all lines up.

Best Summer Deal In Rome Feb 18, 2009
We stayed here in July 2008 for 10 days. We were blown away at how beautiful the grounds were. It's located 20 minutes(bus then quick Metro ride from grounds)from downtown Roma and about half an hour from Fuimicino.

It was scorching, almost unbearably hot in Rome in July so we took full appreciation of their pool area. Private bungalo's with kitchen, bathrooms, and deck area. Great for families and groups alike, if you don't mind being a a little far from the city-center. Definitely a a great value for a very expensive Rome.

Camping Village Roma Mar 16, 2008
My friend and I went to Rome in 2006 and we stayed at the Camping Village Roma, which we found via the hostelsclub website. We stayed there for ten days, but the website only allowed us to book 7 and then 3 days seperately, so we had to move. That wasn't a big problem though. Its possible to pay with all major credit cards.

There isn't really a shuttle service from the Airports, so you have to go to one of the travel-agencys there for a shuttle or go by train and bus, if you know your way. They do have a shuttle service to Termini station, but you have to book that four days early (which they don't tell you.)

The rooms start at 18 Euro per bed. The bed is usually in a three-bed hut, which is kind of made out of plastic. There is a refridgerator, an air-condition and a small bathroom. Its usually mixed rooms, but the people who stay there are mostly between 17 and 30. There are older people too, but they often stay at the camping place, which is also available. The even cheaper beds are in tents, but I have not been in one of those.

But what makes this location really special is the surroundings, there is a shallow pool, two whirlpools, an affordable and good restaurant and two bars. One bar is quiet and open air, and the other is more of a club, with differing music and drinks. Its a non-smoking area.

There is a supermarket just across the street from the Camp, which sells almost anything. And it also has an ATM.

The only minus was the distance from the inner city. The busstop is right in front of the camp, but its usually quite full, so going with lugguage is a bit annoying. And a secret tip, when coming back from the city, instead of waiting forever for the bus at Cornelia Station, just go ten meters around the corner and take the other bus there. (Most of the tourists didn't seem to know that.)

You may want to use to find what is best for you but the cheapest place I found was Plus Camping Roma. I stayed there when I was in Rome and really liked it. Its about 20 Euro a night for a 2 person room (1/2 of a mobile home) you get your own shower and bathroom and there is Air conditioning! You would be able to stay in a dorm for about $14 USD a night as well if it is availible. So check it out! The camp site takes the subway then a short bus ride to get to so the only bad thing is if you aren't back by 9pm you'll probably have to pay for a cab. But the camping site has a pool and hot tub, not very warm. There is a nice area to lay out with a pool bar. There is also another place to eat and at night its a club/bar. There are coin operatued laundry facilities on site as well. Hope this information helps and good luck on your trip!
