Pros - location (so very close to Termini, but also to bars and restraunts) - ensuite bathroom - clean - professional staff - very effective window shades to let you sleep in after a big night - fastest and most reliable and easy-to-connect-to wifi I've ever had in a hostel Cons - ensuite bathroom (i.e., if someone's using the bathroom...

I've stayed at 5 countries and 7 hostels, and here is one of the best. good: reception was great, smart and kind. Perfect location so that you can walk to Termini station in 3min. (of course, to some pizzeria.) Clean toilet, and shower room is too. bad: hot water wasnt available at midnight.

We had a great time at the Alessandro Palace! It's in a fairly good location, close to the main train station and a couple of metro stops to the main attractions. We stayed in a 6 bed room, it was fairly basic compared to other hostels we had stayed in but clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff were... More

I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights this week, and had a pleasant stay. The reception was quite nice, and one of the front desk people even offered to show me Rome at night. The rooms were quite large, and so was the bathroom. The bunk beds were comfortable and not terribly squeaky like most. The only downside is... More

This hostel is in a great location and right near the train station. Room was clean and good air con, however it is a mixed room with a poor bathroom that could have done with a clean and an update with holes in the ceiling. No kitchen area to use which wasn't the best. Staff at the hostel were lovely... More

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

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
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.
