    Great spot! Amazing experience, one of the best hostels I've stayed in Europe. It could been more awesome if they provide free breakfast too. Fantastic facilities, rooms, topnotch secured. Very lovely staff and amazing experience. It was super clean and comfortable. My only issues were that there wasn’t much internet connection in the room. Having said that, I would say here again. Overall it was a great stay to start my trip.

    I only stayed here for one night but for what I needed it was perfect, from the staff, rooms and facilities. I liked the location near the train station and not too far from some main attractions like the Colosseum and there’s a lot of restaurants around the area. Great bar and atmosphere.I had a great time.

    The staff here is very chill and all very nice. Pasta night and pub crawls are another great way to meet people if you didn't get a chance to during the day. Good restaurants recommendation. The room is wide and clean. The tour I booked with them was nice. Can't wait to come back.

    It is super good. The staff is so nice and they are always looking out for you, They try to find solutions when you have a problem and they gave me a free upgrade to a 6bed ensuite. The rooms were clean and beds were easily accessible. Very good connection to the city center with metro and bus from Termini station. Very good value.

    Alessandro downtown location was great, right next to the main train station. It's easy to get to from anywhere in the city . Hated the lockers. My first lock didn't fit, luckily I had a smaller lock but it was still a hassle getting in and out. Staff was kind and helpful. The common room also bar have much ambiance, can't judge the pub crawl because I didn't go. Overall clean facilities and good location but mellow common areas. Nice stay in total.

    I stayed for 3 nights. Met some awesome people in the hostel bar. The Party night out was okay, but we had more fun the nights we explored bars on our own. It was hard making dinner in the kitchen with only 4 burners, and you can’t access your food in the fridge after 10pm. The walk to the colosseum was nice and some good exercise. It was really nice having access to a washer AND a dryer here. Showers offered some privacy and space to undress/dress. And only a 5 minute walk to/from the trains
