The Hostelz.com Review

Rome is always difficult when it comes to booking a hostel because there are so many to choose from all located in a similar area, but Alessandro Palace Hostel is a safe bet. It's a big, clean, reasonably priced hostel with enough information and activities to help you make the most of your time in Rome.

The Location

Located five minutes away from the main train station Termini, it is easy to find and convenient. Although this area is not the nicest during the evening. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. The hostel's suggested restaurant next door should be given a miss, as there are far better-priced options nearby. There are plenty of small supermarkets and bars to grab snacks from as well.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are spacious and spread out, the beds are a little strange. The bunk beds have a tendency to be very noisy when guests moved around in their sleep. They have also adapted a strange bed-making technique and the sheets are barely put on. The lockers are only big enough for valuables, which is fine due to the amount of space available for bags.

The bathrooms are ok, and there are extra ones in the hallway, which is helpful for the morning queue. The bathrooms are kept reasonably clean. The main concern is the floor, as exiting the bathroom with wet feet the outside floor is dangerously slippery, so beware.

Common Spaces

This is where Alessandro Palace excels -- it is a very social hostel and encourages all guests to take part, they have several areas for guests to hang out with couches and TVs and then they have the bars. Each night there is either a cocktail hour or pub crawl to attend. They have a rooftop bar as well as one downstairs for guests. They do close at midnight, but the staff will always recommend somewhere else to continue. They have a large locker room to store bags once people check out and don't seem too bothered by people hanging out waiting for trains and such.

Summary

Alessandro Palace is a good choice when staying in Rome. It's not the perfect hostel but it is social, mostly clean, and has a nice vibe. Its convenient location is perfect and the staff are friendly and willing to help.

A good, average hostel

This is a positive review. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the accommodations were fine, but the WiFi was less than ideal and the location was pretty far from most of the prominent sights in Rome (a half hour walk to Ancient Rome and an hour to the Vatican). That, coupled with the fact that the WiFi failed to work for me, despite help from their staff, moved this review from a 4 star to a 3 star.

Kind people, great atmosphere, and perfect location

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was super helpful in helping us find the must dos of Rome. We also loved the people we met there. Highly recommend this place!

Got me a bed at the last minutes, 24 hr reception, super friendly

I needed a bed last minute for a single night and the staff was super friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean (with AC!), and although I didn't hang out in the common area or at the bar as I was there such a short amount of time, they seemed nice and full of friendly people.

Awesome!

Everything was clean, people friendly and helpful, good air conditioning, lockers in the room, and a lively bar at night! It is in a great location too. Only downside I can think of -- really long line for bathroom/showers in the morning, but definitely well worth the money.

At Alessandro Palace Hostel, the staff are lively, the bar is buzzing, and the pizza is free.

The Location

If you want to be smack bang in the middle of the most touristy, tackiest part of Rome, this is the best place to be. Located in the heart of Rome's transportation system, this is a great place to stay if it's literally just a pit stop, as the huge beast that is Termini station is just minutes away by foot. For those who want to be in a quieter, more cultural area -- look elsewhere.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Rooms are large with an odd choice of furniture -- what could have easily have been lockers is instead a useless set of cabinets without locks. (After our visit, the hostel did claim to be putting in lockers by December 2008). Some of the beds are built into the cabinet, so you go to sleep feeling like you're in a box -- it's all very odd. There's a bathroom in every room, which sounds nice and luxurious but the reality is not pretty. It's inevitable that when one person wakes up in a dorm room of eight or so people, everyone wakes up -- which results in a huge toilet queue come morning time. Other than the general bad planning of the bedrooms, everything is nicely clean and tidy.

Common Spaces

Hostel bars are few and far between in Rome, but Alessandro's proudly boasts about their lively hub, which is a great place to mingle. There are also free pizza sessions here (every night from 12th January to 28th February 2009) -- maybe this is to make up for the lack of kitchen. There are often nights planned in the bar so if you decide to opt out, it's likely you'll be home alone -- people who stay in Alessandro's are generally party animal types. There's a great computer room with internet, but it isn't free to use. In fact it costs more than nearby internet cafes.

Summary

This hostel is huge and noisy with a focus on partying and having fun. With it (of course) comes a hoard of friendly, outgoing travelers. However, if you take away the fun factor, whats left? The free breakfast is pretty good and it's all relatively clean, but you can find much cheaper hostels in better locations if you're willing to sacrifice the bar.

Nice Location, Very Friendly Staff

I stayed here in March 2007 for three nights. The place is just a walkable distance from the central station and easily accessible to main attractions in the city. The best part is of course the very friendly staff. There is no curfew and it's open twenty-four hours. So it was easy for me to check out at 5:30 a.m. and catch my train at 6 a.m. The rooms and beds are clean and well maintained. I will recommend to anyone to choose this hostel. Good luck.

Just ok

The rooms were pretty clean and breakfast was alright. Beyond that, can't think of much good to say. AC wasn't working in our room either night and they refused to give any kind of discount. Don't think I would stay here again.
