Our family of three spent three nights at the Beehive in early May. Our first night was in the 8 bed mixed dorm, and the last two nights we were in the Sweets.
The staff was extremely helpful. They provided us with sound advice for the way to spend our time in Rome in order to make best use of our time and see the main sights. And they knew where we could walk to the best gelateria in Rome. We got to Come Il Latte every night.
The dorm room worked out fine for us. There were enough shared bathroom facilities so that contention was never an issue. The dorm room was clean and there was adequate lockable storage space. The other travelers who shared the space with us were courteous and quiet. At the same time, we were able to connect with others to share experiences. Just like in any hostel environment.
The Sweets were very nice. We had a large room, with an extra roll-away bed. We had our own private bath, and the room had a balcony with enough room for two to sit out and get fresh air.
The location was close to Termini, and hence, close to transportation in any direction. Breakfast was not included with the room rate, but was available on-site for an extra charge. I had a made-to-order omelet that was great. But she had run out of toast. Lesson learned: if you want breakfast, don't sleep in too long.
The Sweets were just a few Euros more per person per night. That room was an excellent value.
