Let's have a look at the cheapest hotel category in Rome (not as cheap as hostels though). When living in a budget hotel or apartment, with the price from 45 to 80 euros per day, you may spend up to an hour and a half to get to the historical center. Metro will most likely have to be reached by bus, and showers may be shared. But not always and not necessarily. Just be prepared. There are, however, some rare variants that may surprise you and exceed all your expectations. They can be easily overlooked, and some of them are booked up months in advance.
It's quite legendary among European students. The place is rather attractive for youth, since there is an outdoor pool, a disco, and an atmosphere.

The place is ideal for student companies, and there are also many campers with mobile homes. There is free internet and the opportunity to have breakfast for about 5 euros.
