Location is really a strong point of this hostel. Well, and its price. However, the top bunkbed was without rails -> a person sleeping there could just easily fall down! Wifi was free. Overall, this is an average hostel.

Location is good: 5 minutes from Termini Station (subway and train station), close to restaurants and a supermarket. Facilities are ok: lift, bar and reception are well-functional. However I had some problems with the room. The room is superficially cleaned everyday, however corners were dirty and the shower corners with full of that black wet dirty, like it had never... More

I've stayed in both Alessandro hotels. Both are within walking distance of the main train station (which is also where the airport transfer buses drop off and pick up, and the Train from the airport comes into, and the tour buses also stop/start here, and the metro(Every link, to get any where basically)) So the location of both are quite...

Fantastic place for meeting new people and going on their bar crawls, also a great bar. However, there was a a very unpleasant and rude receptionist which did tarnish my opinion of the place. He started shouting at a group of us because some people weren't staying there but were drinking at the bar. We tried to apologise and ask... More

The room we were in was a little loud but the place seemed friendly and relaxed. It was a little too hotel like for me with everyone running around doing their own things but the reception staff were polite and helpful. I'm not a fan of chain hostels and the place just seemed a little too "processed" for me. The... More

Good location and easy going reception. In the middle of what seems to be the acomadation area of rome there are lots of restaurants and other hotels around. They have teed up a deal with the resultant next door for a really cheap 4 Euro breakfast, probably the best value for money breakfast I've had!

My experience at this hostel went from good to pathetic in a matter of hours. When I checked in, the entire process was extremely smooth. They have a room to deposit your bags in, and a locker where they store your valuables if you'd like that. After I'd done both, I went out to tour Rome. The problems began when... More

Hostels Alessandro was pretty basic as hostels go. Nothing fancy, and the atmosphere left a little to be desired. However, when I forgot my jacket there, the owner Niccolo was INCREDIBLY helpful - he found it, held it for me, and ultimately mailed it to the states for me! 5/5 for the customer service

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
