Organic/natural ingredient focus. Communal experience with hostel guests and staff chatting over breakfast. Great service from the chef. Not...More

Excellent food at a reasonable price. They only service breakfast. I am not sure if you can come here if you are not staying at the Beehive. I highly recommend it.

Menu is a little boring to meat-lovers, in addition, we would have loved to get some typically Italian pastries, like cornetti or other paste, or tramezzini, or panini. It mostly accommodates American taste and is not too special, though used produce is excellent. A little...More

I ate the breakfast every day, homemade bread and jam with eggs, so good. It was hard to choose from all the good choices each offered. The cappuccino's were amazing too. I highly recommend eating here, even if you aren't staying in the hotel. yum!!!!

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot

Our small kitchen, set in the oasis of The Beehive hostel, is open for breakfast daily between 7:30-10:30am where we serve fresh, organic, vegetarian and vegan friendly breakfast. On Wednesdays we have family style vegetarian dinners and on Friday vegan dinners, both with fixed menus and "pay by donation" of whatever you think is fair. It's a great way to have a personal, casual experience of good, authentic food in an environment that's not a restaurant nor a private home.
