Established in 1990, the Alessandro Palace has become one of the most popular hostels in Rome for backpackers and independent travelers worldwide.
The Alessandro Palace Hostel provides energy-saving air-conditioning and heating units as well as bathrooms in every room. Located in a safe central area, we're a short five-minute walk from Termini, Rome's central transportation hub for buses, metro, taxi stops, and trains to get you where you want to go.
This is one of the few hostels in Rome to have its own onsite pub with satellite TV and the cheapest drink specials in town. Furthermore, we're a proud selected member of Europe's Famous Hostels.
Our hostel boasts traditional Roman-style architecture and atmosphere. Michelangelo's masterpiece The Creation is painted on the ceiling, welcoming you along with our friendly bar staff. It's the perfect place to sit back, relax and chat with fellow travellers over a beer!
A wide-screen TV with satellite and a surround-sound speaker system keeps you entertained with all the sports and music until late. The bar offers a Wi-Fi connection and special events like free parties, games, the cheapest drinks in town and happy hour every night. It's open from 6pm until 2am (last call 1:30am) every night!
You can also relax on our roof garden from 8am to 9pm.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The Alessandro Palace (not to be confused with the Alessandro Downtown) is one of the many hostels and hotels in the area near to Termini Station. Because of this, the location is fine, when you are arriving and leaving. Not only trains run from Termini, but also Metro, and many buslines, including to the airports. From Termini it is just a couple of minutes to the Hostel. The staff was very helpful and speak several languages so getting information was really easy. The beds and the rooms are nice, and entrance secured by a batch you receive when checking in. If you arrive early (or leave you bags on the day of departure) you can use the big storage room downstairs. The only two downsides where the smell of the bathroom. As my bed was located closest to the bathroom I had to close the door a couple of times, because of this. The other small downside was the breakfast, that could have been a bit more diverse. That the coffee from a machine, I can understand for economical reasons, but in Italy with its rich coffee culture, you would not expect it. But the plusses outway the negatives by far, so I had a lovely stay. The bar is lively in the evening, and a nice place to meet other travellers. Free internet is always a plus.
