Not the nicest area but very close to Termini Station so it was really easy to get around. The restaurant across the road was really good! Wifi was pretty terrible and didn't work most of the time. Rooms were fine. More like a hotel than a hostel as it was so big.

Stayed two nights. Had a private twin room that was very clean and comfortable with air conditioning. The staff were very helpful. Were thrilled to have an elevator to get to our floor instead of lugging a bag up flights of steps. Would definitely stay at Alessandro Palace again.

We were only there for one night, but everything was fine. The room was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and clean and the staff was helpful enough. The breakfast was very good for 4 Euros and we even fixed a few sandwiches to take with us. All in all, a good place to stay in.

Good social hostel offering plenty of activities for guests, cocktail nights and pub crawls starting in the bar and roof top terrace etc. The hostel is in a good location close to the main train and the rooms and facilities are clean.

Loved the rooftop cocktail party and the bartender was great! Good beds, close to central station and walking distance to most sights. Great hostel for meeting people!

Very average place for the price, no real atmosphere but they do an over priced pub crawl where I'm prety sure they dilute the spirits with somthing.. Don't waste your time stay at the yellow hostel just around the corner instead.

The room given(46) was big and with two bathrooms which was lucky. The staff are friendly and helpful, basic breakfast provided, it lacks a comfortable/cosy common room but thats okay, bar area has a nice atmosphere, well connected thanks to the Termini station . We were cold at night, the blanket for summer is a bit thin. They do printouts for you and let you leave the bags which is great,. . The roof terrace/garden is not really exciting as it doesn't have a view.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Great location, near two metro stations (I recommend the Castro Pretorio blue line station north of the hostel - you won't have to deal with the chaos of the Termini). Lots of food and cafe options nearby. Lightning fast WiFi, even in the room. The only drawback was our bathroom had an odor on and off for our three night stay. The hostel was mostly clean, though. 7am churchbells every morning, but we brought ear plugs so it wasn't an issue. Recommended!!

enjoyed my stay here, the people who work at the front desk are very nice & friendly. they help me to book my tour and they also give to me a discount. the drinks at the bar is okay, breakfast worth and the wifi works great downstairs. i also met a lot of people at the roof top! i will definitely recommend

Well, as a hostel lovers; we chose Alessandro with the help of its' reviews. But in our first step to hostel, we regret. Noisy place, dirty rooms and baths and moreover unfriendly staff. We understood that their first aim is to gain money, not to make a friendly atmosphere. There are no kitchen to use in common. Bathrooms were really really dirty and smelling bad. No bed bugs, thanks god, this is the only positive. Location seems good but be aware of that Termini is an unsafe area.

Really really great staff working here. They were all very helpful and friendly each time I spoke with them, and were able to change me rooms in the middle of the night when I encountered an awful snoring situation. The hostel has a great location and puts on little functions each night to get guests hanging out at the bar. Room quality varied but was overall quite nice.

only complaint is the bar downstairs is loud if you want to sleep - but awesome if you want to socialise.

Staff were very nice and helpful in regards to suggestions about Roma. Wifi was slightly sketchy - on and off in rooms, non existent on roof but good in the reception. Bathrooms could use a floor mat - a pool of water by the end of the day after 8 people have showered. Otherwise perfect
