I stayed at the Hostel Alessandro Palace for four nights last week and came back home to California not only with my souveniers but with flea bites! I started breaking out into hives the next day on my arms which then appeared on my both my legs, and neck. My body was suffering so terribly that I even had to go to the Emergency room two days later and the doctor told me it was a bad case of the flea bites and bumps were appearing all over my body as an allergic reaction. A few days later, things weren't improving so I went to the dermatologist and she prescribed me steroids to ease the itching pain and I've been taking them for two days now. I just called Hostel Alessandro Palace Downtown and told them about my situation and urged them to take better fumigation measures and she reluctantly said she'd look into it. I know that I will recover in a bout two weeks but I wouldn't want anyone to have to go through this themselves, especially if they have senstive skin like me. Please don't stay here -- enjoy your stay in Rome and then come back home without any bites!
