    It was an extremely clean and comfortable hostel as they have a/c. There is a bar area downstairs with cheap price. My favorite part of staying at Alessandro Downtown was the very helpful and informative staff, a real great team. Conveniently close to the metro station. Would recommend to anyone.

    I love this place, So cool place to stay. They have activities for everyone and it is great way to make new friends. The vatican tour they have was really nice. Staff was extremely helpful and available 24 hours. Kitchen and bathroom facilities are both excellent. Will definitely recommend this spot to others visiting Rome.

    22-25 year old male solo traveler, hostel was everything I needed, and the strong A/C in my room made sleeping really easy. The bunk beds were small, I’m 6’2” and didn’t fit on the bed laying flat, but again the A/C made up for it. 5€ breakfast was just okay, but location next to roma termini meant i could get anywhere (including vatican) within 30 minutes which was nice.

    Overall a nice hostel! Great location - very close to the metro and the historical city centre. Bedrooms were clean and comfortable and pasta nights were a welcome treat after long days of exploring Rome. Unfortunately, our experience was tainted by someone stealing our food, but the staff were attentive to our complaint. WiFi connection in our bedroom was awful, but worked well in the communal area. Overall, would recommend a stay here.

    Staff was great, location also great, very close to the main train station. Take care when closing the door to your room because sometimes it does not shut properly. The air con works nicely. Good place to meet lots of nice and friendly people. The window on the 5th floor is a good place to drink some wine.

    This hostel was really fun, they have a bar which everyone ends up at and the alcohol prices are pretty decent. The only thing we would complain about was the bar closed around 12:30-1 and that the kitchen is only available from 1 PM to 10 PM. They do offer breakfast but we liked making our own so it was hard to work around.

    The staff are the best part of this hostel— very welcoming and accommodating. It is also conveniently close to the main train station, but the area is a bit rough and dirty. Unfortunately, the bathroom and kitchen were unclean which I found reduced the value of my stay. There was a very bad smell in the bathroom which staff responded to in a timely manner but the smell immediately came back. If you are in Rome for a few days to see the sights, I would suggest staying closer to the center.
