The location is great. You're right next to Roma Termini/Metro station and within walking distance to most of Rome's attractions. A friend and I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm. The beds and sheets were clean and there was a wall outlet next to every bed. Luggage lockers were large and spacious. The hall baths were clean and in... More

The room was great. Other than the toilet seat being a bit loose and multiple instances of falling off the toilet, this was a great stay. Was visiting Venice for a few days and staying on Lido was just a short bus boat away from the main island, so it was very convenient. Staff were friendly, and breakfast was great... More

I've been travelling Europe for a month now, and I'm really impressed with the staff here at Alessandro Downtown. My travel plans got changed at the last minute and I ended up staying in Rome an extra four days.

The Alessandro was amazing! Staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean with great AC, and the bathrooms were perfect. The best part were the plethora of events that were hosted at the Hostel. I met about 40 people from 12 different countries and had a blast. - Colton

Just a walk away from the colosseum, the location is very handy. There is no bar or anything at this hostel - I think there is one at the other Alessandro Hostel in Rome, so just make sure you're aware which one you're booking! The other Alessandro is on the other side of the train station. I think this one... 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.
