PLUS Camping Fabulous

If you've had enough of sweaty hostels in Rome then maybe it's time to head to the coast. Rome is still close enough to do all the essential sightseeing while the beach is close enough for some serious ray catching.

PLUS Camping Fabulous is not like an ordinary hostel in Rome. It has all the services you would expect and some fantastic bonuses that no other youth hostel can offer. A great restaurant, bar, pizzeria, internetpoint, organized tours, laundry, mini-market, swimming pools with a lazy lagoon, 15 tennis courts, beach volleyball, football pitch and the beautiful Roman Coast of Ostia.

Our cheap accommodation options mean you have a resort style experience at an affordable price.

PLUS Camping Fabulous is just 30mins from the centre of Rome and 20mins from the stunning coast of Ostia. The location is ideal for those who wish to explore the Roman ruins of Ostia Antica, take time out of the city to relax on the beach or spend some time in the Eternal city, without the hassle of staying in the crowded city centre.

We organize excursions into Rome (tours such as Rome by night, Ostia Antica day trip, Tivoli day trip) and a day trip to Pompei & Naples.

For information on the airport shuttle-see the FAQ section at the top of the page.

Reception is open 24hrs, check in starts at 01.00 pm and check-out is by 10.00 am. Cancellations must be done at least 24hrs before checkin to avoid being charged for your first night's stay.

If you are leaving late feel free to put your bags in the lockup to catch a few extra rays by the pool. 

*Please note that from the 1st of January 2011 the City Council of Rome has decided to introduce an overnight accommodation tax of € 1,00 per person / per night (max. 5 days). Children under 10 years old are exempt from payment. This tourist tax has to be paid upon arrival.

NEAR BY ATTRACTIONS:

OSTIA ANTICA

This ancient city was a major port and defense post for the fledgling Rome at the mouth of the Tiber, dating back to around the 4th Century BC. Today you can spend a day walking among the ruins which are near perfectly preserved, examining the shops, houses and roads almost as they were in their heyday. Some houses have most of their walls still intact and the public baths have complete mosaics on the floor giving a real insight into Roman daily life.

OSTIA BEACH

The public beach has undergone some major renovation, with the Strand and the private areas with their sunbeds, restaurants, bars, windsurfers and jet skis for hire. There are public areas in between that sometimes have a small charge to access them.
