Good hostel if you just need a place to sleep - air conditioning in the rooms was great! There was very little atmosphere so probably not the best place to meet new people. Very close to Termini station and about 15 minutes from Colosseum and the Roman forum.

Brilliantly close to the main train station (Termini), which meant getting round was a lot easier. Had pretty much everything you'd want from a hostel in terms of facilities. wifi was a bit slow to connect. friendly staff. has an option to put luggage in secure storage for 12 hours for 2 euros with a key-in code, which was great (or you could just leave it in the luggage room for free). rooms were pretty standard and clean.

this was a great place to stay. the staff was friendly and they have a lot of events to meet others in the hostel. great location, beds were better than most hostels and the bathrooms we're clean/functioning. I recommend this to anyone staying in rome.

I really enjoyed my stay at Alessandro Downtown Hostel. The hostel is ideally located in the center of Rome, three blocks from Termini Station and about twenty to thirty minutes walk from all the main attractions. The hostel was super clean with great bathroom and kitchen facilities and lockers for every guest. The staff are super friendly and helpful and even posted a letter to me in Venice. Although it is located in Termini which has a reputation of being a dodgy area I had no problems.

I loved the hostel. It was clean, the staff were very helpful and located right beside the train station. Only negative wifi didn't work in the rooms at all.

Overall a good experience - in my travels I have found that very few hostels ask for a key deposit and I found it a little disappointed that this one did, especially when the keys were in such bad shape (mine was close to snapping in half) and hardly worked well, we had to bring it down to have it re-programmed a couple of times. Also for this same price range, many other hostels have breakfast included.

Very friendly staff. Love the building sercurity. The area it is located in is OK at night, however can be a little sketchy for two females coming back late. They have cheap lockers available to store luggage for 2EUR for 12 hours since we showed up before our room was ready. Provided towels and a blow dryer in the room! Downfall - paid for private room and it was located beside an all male 8 person room which ended up breaking out in fist fight at 3AM and no staff member came to settlle it down

Wifi kept cutting out in the rooms. Staff was helpful though. Noise wasn't controlled well as there are multiple stories that the hostel is on. Breakfast not worth the 4euro as there are tons of great restaurants right around the corner. Great location though, within 30minute walking distance from most attractions such as the colosseum.

Had a little trouble finding the place because it's called a Downtown Hostel, not Alessandro, but no big deal. Great place to begin exploring Rome from, walkable to everywhere. Good expat scene. Cheap food nearby. Not so great for doing tours through the hostel. Staff nice but not overly professional. Card key in door a real problem for everyone.

Very nice hostel! Clean, helpful staff, right next to the train station. Only thing is it's not by any of the main attractions so it's quite a walk to get anywhere!

Good location near Termini. Staff was helpful. Rooms locked with 24 hr staff so felt safe. Beds were old and flat with no cushion. 6 people and 2 outlets near the door so charging your phone is hard.

Conveniently located near Termini station, although not the best area for walking around at night. Very clean rooms and bathrooms, hot showers, and overall great value for money. I wish the staff had been a little more friendly/outgoing.

It was a great price for a room, it felt very secure and was very close to the center of town. It was clean and the girl at the desk was very nice.

Very average hostel. Not worth the price. The staff was rude and you could tell they were not happy with their jobs. There was no sense of atmosphere or a good place or activities for solo travelers to meet. The location is convenient because it's so close to termini but it's loud and the locals there didn't seemed thrilled with the tourists. Spend your money elsewhere!

Decent place to stay for a short period only. Very convenient to termini station, which is good for getting into/out of Rome and accessing metro. Bit of a walk to the major sites though. Not a whole lot of atmosphere as this is an outpost of their main hostel. Neighborhood can be a bit iffy at night, though I did notice a number of police patrolling at night so maybe they are trying to fix that. Mattresses not the best I've slept on but also not the worse. stay here for easy transport options
