We stayed at The Beehive at the end of June, 2006. Upon arriving in Rome and walking through The Beehvie's sketchy neighborhood, we were not expecting much (and were actually considering changing our reservation) but thankfully, the hotel/hostel is everything described on TripAdvisor and The Beehive's website, and MORE. The thick garden wall and security door provide safety in a truly questionable neighborhood, the staff is helpful and friendly, and the whole feel of the place is trendy and fun! We stayed in the dorm room, which I was hesitant about at first, but everyone was polite and quiet, and it ended up being a great way to save money. The highlight of The Beehive was certainly Francesca's cafe' downstairs. The food was tasty and healthy, and Francesca facilitated helpful and informative conversation among the guests. We made some new friends and got lots of travel tips. Don't miss her cafe', even if you don't stay at The Beehive. Yum! Our only concern was the lack of air conditioning. It's HOT in Rome, and this did make things a little unbearable at times, BUT, don't miss The Beehive for this one little hang up. Check it out- you won't be disappointed!
