Liked: Breakfast included. The location was great, I got off my train from napels and only had to lug my backpack 2 blocks. Very close! Also close to busses and metro, which are great for seeing the sites. Everything is walkable though.

Disliked: The staff told us there was free pizza, this was also advertised in their description. First night no pizza, the staff on duty said they didn't even know about it, second night you were lucky to get a slice. So don't count on it for dinner. Also at the time the lift was being replaced, so 4 long flights of starts were a bit much. I was also put in a room with 7 males and I was the only female. Not a very comfortable situation to put a lone female traveller in. I was just lucky the guys were freindly.

Liked: Alessandro had a pretty good location. You're able to walk to any of the main attractions. Free pizza and breakfast is a great move. (Be sure to get on the pizza as quick as you can, not around long). Drink prices weren't bad and its always nice having a bar on location, helps to meet people interested in doing the same stuff as you. 3 bed private was neat, with a decent ensuite.

Disliked: They were doing construction while we were there and it smelled heavily of lacquer in the hallway. Not the prettiest sight for a traveler just arriving in rome. Also had to hike up about four flights of stairs. (Hopefully, construction will be done soon and the elevator will be working). Staff wasnt the friendliest, or overly helpful. We had electrical problems in our room, and the repair man seemed somewhat put out when we had to ask him 3 separate times to come fix it (but what the heck!? the a/c and lights werent even working, what are we supposed to do???). He said he would return the next day to work on it, but did not. We had to kind of rig it ourselves. Also, you have to get tokens to pay for drinks. Dumb and kind of annoying...

Liked: Great location, near Termini.

Disliked: Staff seemed like it was a hassle to help you and weren't interested at all. The rooms are EXTREMELY overpriced for what you get and the beds the most uncomfortable I've ever had in a hostel. The bar is a good way to meet people / hang out with people but there's a bit of a pointless token system to buy drinks.

Liked: location, location, location---real close to termini station. but, a HUGE flaw in this hostel is that somebody bought banks and banks of lockers that are TOO SMALL that can be used just for normal size backpack. Very friendly staff and nice breakfast free. I think everybody should complain about those ridiculous size lockers. Can you imagine, outfit the entire hostal with lockers that you are unable to place your backpack in...Somebody really blew it.

Disliked: Lockers throughout the hostel are too small to place a normal size backpack. A big flaw in an otherwise super hostel.
