Good 6.0
Reasonable for the price
Location is good, close to the train station and subway, also a walking distance to the Coliseum. However, the hostel is very basic if comparing with others in Europe for the same price. It was okay, though, no problems.

The best hostel in Roma
This place was great! I felt very welcomed and the staff was helpful in every way. The front desk showed me where important spots were including the closest ATM and good shops to buy supplies for a budget minded traveler such as myself. The breakfast is amazing. You can go back up and get as many platefuls of bacon and eggs as you like! I'm a big breakfast eater so this was a lifesaver for me. The breakfast staff were very passionate about providing a plate full of food and a warm smile every time. Also got to hear some cool music while eating. The beds were comfortable and heater worked well. This was a wonderful experience. It is close to everything I mean everything. I would highly recommend Alessandro Downtown Hostel to anyone. You can't beat the price either!

Good for a short stay
The location of the hostel is pretty good, very close to the station Roma Termini and 20min away from the Colosseum. The staff is friendly, however the hostel does not accept payments through cards. Besides that, the breakfast is limited. The beds were very noisy and a bit uncomfortable. Overall a good place to stay for a short trip.

Have to checkout the room one hour earlier, at 9 a.m., without any notice at booking time, bad smell in the room, waiting for more than half and hour for check in, paying for storage room, noisy ...

Good place for budget traveler.
Great location, friendly staff. Little bit noisy because of noise from outside. Some other inconvenience but lets think about the price. Totally recommendable.
