Hostel Alessandro is in a good location because it is so close to Termini train station. However, also because of this I would not recommend walking around alone at night as it is not the best area. It wasn't the best place I've ever stayed but it also wasn't the worst.

The hostel was great and they had different things going on each night, which was cool!

The room with 8 was nice and big lots of room and each bed had a plug and a light. They did try to make a bit of atmosphere but it was hard easiest to just meet people in your room. Loved the free "sangria" and snacks (pistachios, score!) on the Monday. The Yellow bar is just down the road and much better atmosphere at that bar and easy to meet people so id recommend heading there after playing flipcup at Alessandros. THe staff were nice and friendly. Close to Termini and walkable to the city

Wifi connection seemed non-existent even downstairs in reception/bar, but location was awesome - only a few blocks from the main train station.

Well located hostel (three blocks from the metro station and also the bus station!) .. The room is great, but unfortunately the closets are small! My backpack for example does not fit (50L) ... and the hole for the lock is odd, then a small lock like mine would not close the door to the closet! In my room had an internal bath that was very good !! Excellent shower! They also have a nice bar inside the hostel, with nice prices for drinks !!

Positive things: location (5 minutes away from Termini), security (lockers available) and cleanliness. Things to improve: they moved me to other building like half a block away, which was a bit annoying when having to ask things to the staff (like getting a towel in the morning). Also, the bar is quite boring compared to the Yellow Hostel bar and the pub crawl doesn't happen everynight. The barwoman in the night also was recepcionist, so i waited like 15 minutes to get a drink. Yellow much bette

fun stay, the staff are really cool, and friendly. they offer to me a free room upgrade :) cheap cocktails they served at the bar downstairs, nice way to meet and socialize to the other travelers. wifi works well at the lobby. breakfast worth for the price and the location is easy to reach.

Good location near the Termini station, staff not so friendly but ok. Not the best place to meet other travelers. The facilities were ok. I was moved to the building nearby which was a bit inconvenient. There was no Wi-Fi in that building so I had to go to the main building in order to have wifi signal which was really inconvenient. Overall, a mediocre hostel, I would recommend it for someone who wants to stay for a night in Rome near Termini but I wasnt impressed at all.

Fantastic hostel and the best I've ever stayed at! Staff was extremely helpful and they have great tips on the city.. Far exceeded my expectations. Really great value. I will defiantly stay again.

Great location, at 5 minutes from the bus station. And the partys that they make to meet people it's a good idea. Excelente ubicación a 5 minutos de la estación de autobuses. Y las fiestas que organizan para que la gente se conozca se me hace una idea muy buena.

I have been staying at this hotel for a number of years, I bring friends as well as my parents with me to stay. The staff are friendly and the hostel is close to the main train station, so from here you can catch a train to just about anywhere in Italy. It also has the buses as well as the hop-on-hop - off buses close by.

Wifi did not work on the rooms. The card reader to get in the rooms did not work properly, and sometimes I had to wait long minutes until I could open the door

Wow.. What a stay in rome. One of the best hostels in Italy. If you want a good time in Rome, stay at alessandro palace. Great staff, awesome bar and a nice big clean place to stay in Rome. Big thanks to Nas and John and Tara for being good friends and making my stay a memorable one. Looking forward to coming back to Roma

Good hostel with a pretty good atmosphere. Internet doesn't seem to work in some rooms and you are also logged out of it every hour, which gets boring... it is right by the main train station, all the main sights to see in Rome are within walking distance. Showers are pretty average no pressure and temparture fluctuates quite a bit.

A comfortable and clean hostel, a plus the bathroom inside the room (4 people), a little bit noisy at night because there is too much people in the hostel but I´d no problems to sleep. I definitely recommend it and also the day tours they offer to the Colosseum and the Vatican.

Great helpful staff. They gave good recommendations for a birthday dinner right around the corner and the transportation systems are very close and easy. There is always staff there ready to help. We personally didn't have any trouble checking in or out but it took some others a bit longer because the server was down, but thats hard to really fix. Wifi was sometimes available in the room, but always good in the lobby. Good experience overall
