It´s really more a hotel than a hostel. Nice if you want to have party. You have to pay for everything, even a cup of tee. There s no hostel atmosphere, you cannot cook, Breakfast is cheap and good in the restaurant besides with a big discount for the hostelers. Rooms are small with a nice and private bathroom. The staff administrates it like a hotel. I wouldn´t recomend this hostel.

The shower flooded and it was really difficult to regulate the temperture. The room was cold, and the heater would shout down if there was no key put in the room. One bathroom for 6 people. Besides that, the room was clean and comfortable. Great place for meeting people, and great breakfast for 4 euros. The bar doesn't have much going on. Totally recommend, good value for your money.

Staff were not overly helpful, it felt more like we were interrupting them all the time. Bunk beds were pretty average, they were literally a fold up sofa bed and it felt like the top bunk was going to collapse every time the person above moved. No kitchen/cooking facilities and no included breakfasts can make it hard for budget travellers. Great pub crawl.

Location is its pro. But the top bunkbed should be with safety rail

The only thing I had a negative view of was the cleanliness of the facilities. Though I did see cleaning ladies come through, I don't know how well the rooms were cleaned, especially the bathrooms. The hostel has a good ambiance for meeting new people. I would recommend they learn about what free walking tours are available in the city. Since when asked for info on the tours they did offer, they said they were no longer available.

Nice hostel, the only bad thing was the pillows were super hard and you could hear any noise from the hallway perfectly clear in the room but everything else was awesome. The restaurant next door with the discount breakfast is delicious and a great value.

I LOVED this hostel ! It was so much fun ! My friend and I met so many people in their bar (which is so fun) that we are still friends with today ! It's really close to where the airport shuttle drops you off which is very nice, especially if you get in very late or have an early flight. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms weren't bad and I liked having a shower right in our room. It was for he most part as clean as a hostel bathroom can get ! I definitely recommend.

While I accept that the lift being repaired was necessary, could there have been a way to do it without an open door to the space behind through which freezing cold air and dust kept blowing? Heaters in the rooms might also be a good idea

Alessandro is a very good hostel, rooms are confortable and have everything you need to have a confortable stay. The bar is great to meet people and have some fun and the Bramble offers great deals if you want to have breakfast or lunch. I just think the pub crawl organized in the hostel could be a lot better.
