Kelsey’s Travels: Italy- Rome (1 Accommodation)



Hi everyone,

I know it’s been a while, but life got in the way and now I’m back!

If you have read my last post about fear, you know that I have started planning my travels. So, I have decided to start a new series called Kelsey’s Travel where I will show you how I plan, where I want to go, what I want to do and everything in-between and hopefully inspire some of you too.

Now firstly I had to decide where I want to go! So I thought for my first solo travel I would go and travel Europe. Since I already live in the UK I thought Europe would be the perfect start. So I’ve decided to visit 5 countries over 5 months.

My first country will be Italy!

I have decided to visit three cities in Italy my first stop being Rome.

In this post I will be talking about the two accommodations I have found which are both hostels. While looking for hostels to stay in I was looking for a place which had all these components:

  • Safety
  • Quality for money
  • Friendly and places to meet other travelers
  • Quite close to the center of Rome or transport.

The website I went to look on was since it was the most reliable website.

Now on to the hostels!
