This hostel is great for meeting people, and is conveniently located to Termini station, however it's a little far from the sights. At times, it felt a little unclean (a few times the cleaning staff cleaned the wrong bed for people who had left, so those checking in did not have a clean bed) but nothing glaring. The bar crawl was a fun way to meet people, however a little expensive and you only get like one free shot and one free drink. I would recommend this or the downtown location.

Fun place with a cool rooftop patio. Good location to walk to and from the Colosseum. Very accommodating staff and multiple restaurants nearby. Pretty sure all the bunks had their own lights and outlets. Honestly can't think of a downside.

The price is too high for what it offers. I paid 26 per night, to stay in an 8 person's mixed bedroom with a bathroom that was never cleaned (or did not look like it was cleaned).

There's a great atmosphere at Alessandro Palace as it has its own bar, and a lovely terrace at the top of the building! I've stayed in a few hostels in Rome and this is probably the best place for meeting people!

Verry very friendly helpful staff. The rooms were really comfortable. The bar has a great atmosphere at night time. Super easy to meet people. Nice and close to termini station. Would stay here again.

Fantastic staff. Well-located near train station, supermarket and some restaurants. Possible to walk to all the famous sites. No problem with the wifi. Breakfast wasn't worth it. I didn't socialise much but I could sense a good atmosphere in the bar. Didn't like having to put my keycard in for the electricity in the room - it's possible to forget it and having to get someone else's when you want to leave is a pain. One bathroom smelled funny in our room. Aircon worked well.

WiFi connections needed to be strong as I was on 3rd floor and to connect I have to come down at the bar, if that is fixed then :)

In general it is a good place with a good atmosphere where you can meet new people, they also manage very nice activities to encourage socialising. Probably the only bad point is the wifi, is absolutely bad, but as I was there to enjoy a good time rather than being connected to internet, then the final score is positive

Ideal location and good value for money.

This place is a bit of a 'battery farm' for travellers. But it's got great organisation re night life so easy to meet people. No frills. Beds and booze.

This is a very expensive hostel in comparison to what you get. The bunks are made for very short people and are more temporary bunks rather than dorm bunks. The rooms are very hot and aircon doesn't really work. The lockers are available but it's difficult to use your own lock (staff will help but also the have a vending machine for locks). Breakfast isn't worth the money. Wifi is spotty at best. The staff however are very helpful and fun.
