I had a great stay here. I am a 24y.o female travelling alone and stayed in a 4 bed dorm with bathroom. I loved it. I was lucky to have stayed in a room with 3 other really cool guys. There were lockers in our rooms, bathroom was nice and clean and we did the pub crawl which was fun. also the rooftop tce drinks are relaxing. location is great a very short walk to termini train station (which is a big main station) where you can pretty much get to anywhere quickly and easily. I would stay again.

Great location, and super close to the train station and shuttle to the airport. This hostel throw great parties everynight on the rooftop, pub crawls or BBQs. The room were good, but the bathrooms need to be upgraded. (No drain on the bathroom floor so water pooled up after showers. There is a travel agency inside the hostel complex so booking trips and sights in Rome were right there!

It is located 5 minutes to Termini which makes it handy to transport with luggage; very clean and the bar offers a very good vibe enhanced by the world cup mood. Recommended.

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.

Nothing entirely special about the place. It's a decent place to stay if you can get a good price. The best features: it's only 5 minutes from Roma Termini and an amazing restaurant around the corner.

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 :)

I would recommend this place to anyone! It was a great place to meet other travelers from all over. The staff was extremely friendly and readily to help you. They had all kinds of events every night while I was there, I will say it is definitely a party hostel, but the location is perfect.
