My stay at Alessandro Palace Hostel was definitely memorable! I met some amazing people there with who we shared bunch of stories on the rooftop at night. The staff was very friendly (mostly Andrei)! I had no problems with any facilities, except the elevator but walking up the stairs doesn't kill nobody! The location couldn't be any better at a 5min walk from Termini. My next stay in Rome will be there again for sure!

This hostel is a good bang for your buck. The location is good in that it is near the main rail station and great for backpackers. The only downside to the location is that it's a bit of a hike to the Colosseum and Forum. The staff was friendly enough, while some were just business as usual. The room was ensuite so that was a plus. The washroom was open with the drain on the floor and after the shower was used it could get a bit funky. Still, overall it was a good experience.

If you are just looking for a fun place to crush at night, this is your hostel. It's comfortable, the rooms are spacious and the wifi is excellent. It doesn't have a common room or sth like that, though, apart from the bar, so if you're looking for somewhere to chill maybe it's not the best option. Otherwise, I totally recommend it

It's alright

The current policy for changing the bed linen is to place only one sheet with the new pillow case. The problem with this is that when using the bed your faced with the option of either covering the matress or using it as a top sheet. In either case your sleeping with a surface that someone else slept with and NEVER gets washed. Health code violation in USA

Great hostel. The staff are great and very friendly. nice bar and the other people were fun. Great location really close to everything, the train/buss station are around the corner and most things are within easy walking distance.

Beds are uncomfortable and dirty. Rooms are tiny for a hostel. Price is expensive for this bad hostel. If you dont want to feel back pain after sleeping, I dont recommend this hostel. Beds change your anatomy in one night.

Overall, it's okay. The rooms are on a different building, 6 beds room with a bathroom. They don't offer breakfast. The bar it's quite good, and it is at the side of Yellow Hostel. Very close to TERMINI station, in which you have both metro lines.

Nice hostel. Very well located, clean and nice staff. Two small negative points: 1) wifi connection was not really good in the room I stayed in (3rd floor). Basically, we would only get wifi in one corner of the room. 2) Only 6 lockers in a 8-bed room. Except these two negative points, everything else was great!

This hostel was really dirty. The toilet was not properly working and the bathroom and room were gross in general. Additionally, the room smelled awful and the beds didn't have enough sheets to be sanitary. The hall was echoey so I was constantly woken up by people talking in the staircase. Would definitely NOT recommend.

The hostel is fine. For the location it is worth it. Still so many things are off about this place. the top bunks had no gaurd rails in our room (6 female), the comforter that they provide is not changed between guests (we witnessed this), the lockers are difficult, the shower in the bathroom backed up and didn't drain well so water gets everywhere. the bar and some good deals and the rooftop patio is nice, but no common room or kitchen. its a loud hostel if you don't like partying.

Alessandro was clean and close to Termini, which was good because we had flights the next day. However there was no common space or any sense of community in the hostel, so it was less enjoyable than many hostels I have stayed in. The room was fine but nothing special. Breakfast was not included, which made the morning more difficult.

Good place to stay, but the facilities are just basic

Honestly? Nothing special. Room it self was all right, but I dont think anybody cleaned or set the empty beds for the three days I was there. No garbage can inside the room. Good thing is that they have a baggage hold. Nice little room with toilet, wifi and chairs/table, where you have to be buzzed in. So it's pretty safe. And you can use those facilities even if you are checked out

This place was pretty basic - I would definitely recommend the yellow over this hostel for a fun time in Rome. However, it's close enough to the yellow to go party and still be able to come back and sleep and the staff is friendly and courteous.

staying here was a great choice, staff provide detailed information how to get around the city. location is near the train station, and the room was clean and the reception is open 24 hours which is so helpful.
