The area of the hostel was not very safe at night. I really didn't enjoy walking back after dark. No other issues. The atmosphere was great and I met some really nice people there.

It's close to the main station which is handy. Room and facilities are all ok, beds aren't the comfiest but you make do. CJ at reception was by far the nicest staff member at this hostel.

Stayed in this hostel for 4 nights in a mix dorm ensuite. The rooms were fairly clean as well as the bathrooms. The wifi was spotty in the rooms but in the bar it was pretty good. The station is pretty close to the termini station so making it easy getting around town since the station is the hub for all the transportation. There wasn't much to do around the area of the hostel, just some restaurants and a supermarket. But since it was close to the station it was no real problem.

I loved the place. The workers were amazing especially the young bartender! Very much a younger crowd stays here 19-22 was the average age. Bar and roof top garden are pretty cool. I would totally stay here again without a doubt. Location was great. Right next to a hop on hop off bus tour and the train station.

The hostel was so close to Rome's main train station, which was great. My partner and I booked an 8 bed dorm

The hostel was okay but the area was super sketchy! You have to be very careful to your surroundings and watch your back. I didn't feel safe to walk around and explore the city. The wifi didn't work very well in the rooms. The terrace was a good place to relax and chill.

Great location. All staff so helpful, lots of great information. Party atmosphere, but not disruptive to those of us who actually need to get some sleep. :) Wifi mostly only worked in the lobby.

Very good location, nice beds, good athmosphere everywhere. The staff was very helpful with everything. Really liked it. Only negative point i could say, is that there is no kitchen....

Well, this place is majestic. Staff, people and atmosphere as exactly we would have imagined. Close to Rome termini station with good facilities. Met a awesome lot of people, their pub crawl and parties are really a whole different level. Hats off guys, we would be surely coming there next time.

Not a place for a older people, but if your young then im sure you will have a great time. Lots of people to meet and a very nice place to stay. The Hostel really pushes people to get to know each other having bar and club party's throughout the week. Theres a large bar on the bottom floor where you can meet plenty of young pretty women and laid back guys. Worth a stay people!

This hostel is on the list of Europe's famous hostels - a great list of the best hostels around Europe & I have consistently had a great experience at the hostels on the list. Until Alessandro Palace. There was quite a bit of hair in the shower. The rooms were small to share for 4 people. The breakfast was pretty pathetic. The luggage room was not locked. Only bonus was a mini fridge in the room. I have stayed in numerous hostels, and this was just average. If you want excellent, look elsewhere.

Found this hostel quite average, Not overly clean and both showers had drainage problems. The rooms were quite small and claustrophobic with no windows. The only upsides were it is very central and close to Roma Termini which is helpful if you don't want to walk far after getting off a train and the staff were friendly. I wouldn't stay here again though.

So here´s the real deal on this hostel as i was there from August 11-15 this hostel is a cash grab every pub crawl they have they charge you money which is sumthing i wasn´t used to at all its 25buck a night for pub crawl which gets you free drinks at the bar but you will only get 1-2 drinks cuz 4 other hostel join you. Secondly and this is my biggest complaint about this hostel is that you have to use a card in order to get lights, AC, its also in a very dirty area so watch out.

Alessandro palace and bar is a great place to say while in Rome. All of the staff is fantastic, nas and Ian are especially helpful and welcoming. The rooms are clean and there is a bar on the rooftop and inside the building. Perfect place to meet people and stay while you see Rome!

The hostel is in two different buildings, so we were little separated from the main hostel. I expected little more for this hostel. It was nice but little expensive. Location is good, there is less than 5 minutes walk to Termini.

Its a good hostel to stay at as it is near to the train station and not far away from tourist attractions

This is definitely the best hostel in Rome! It has a bar downstairs and a very nice terrace on the roof where they have cheap cocktails every other day. They also organise a lot of pub crawls. This is where you should stay if you want to meet people! The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean, and there's always a good atmosphere. Cooking facilities would be nice, but you can't have everything!
