    I enjoyed my stay at Alessandro, though I wish that I'd stayed on a Saturday night to be able to partake in the bar crawl and club experience. The freebsangria event didn't really bring people together. The rooms were clean and comfortable though it was weird to have one bathroom for an 8 person room. The location near the rain station was clutch, and the hostel was walkable to a lot of great sites and shopping streets.
