This place was great. The staff was very helpful, the location was pretty decent, and the WIFI works well. We stayed in an all female dorm. That's what I reserved, although when we got there they said we had a 'free upgrade' to an all female dorm, so that was odd. Their breakfast is slightly expensive, but still decent. They... More

This hostel was our first one and had everything we needed! We stayed in a comfortable 8 bed dorm with plenty of locker space. The air con kept it cool, although was a little noisy. Showers and toilets right across the hall and I never had to wait. There is good space to take items in without anything getting wet.... More

The shared room of 8 was very big with a lot of space, downstairs was a nice communal area where we watched the world cup which had a nice atmosphere. The hostel was clean and I never had a problem waiting for toilets or showers but would recommend flip flops as with any hostel. Again noise and light of other... More

I stayed in this hostel for just one night, because trains didn't run late enough for me to get to my next destination. It was even closer to Roma Termini station than Google Maps had led me to believe, because apparently Google Maps doesn't know that there are multiple exits from the station. Everyone spoke fluent English, even the gallant... More

Its a hostel so I wasn't expecting much luxury anyway. It's location is awesome and that's why we chose it for our trip and its cheap which makes it ideal for backpackers and on-budget travellers. Its safe and I find that important advantage especially you share your room with others. it has lockers but you bring your own lock. It's... More

I realize that Rome is a very expensive city, but I was expecting a little more for €28/night. Pros: - great location - friendly staff - large dining area Cons: - the water temperature was very unreliable. In some showers the temperature was lukewarm at best no matter how long you waited. - the kitchen was ill equipped: two of... More

The Alessandro was in a great location right next to Roma Termini. It also wasn't a massive place so we were able to meet with a ton of the other travelers. The rooms were great and prices affordable. I would definitely go back again.

We arrived in italy with nothing booked and this was the first hostel we found and ended up staying for 4 nights! It's right next to Termini station and we walked to all of the tourist locations from there. There's a supermarket close by, lockers, kitchen and a social room. The best part was how friendly and helpful the staff... More

The location of the hostel is very good, is only a few blocks away from Termini Station so either if you want to take the subway or if you are traveling around Italy and need to take a train it is a good option, the beds are good but aren't the best, they charge you a fee if you want... More
