Alessandro Downtown Hostel, Rome
OK for one night to catch an early flight
Even though I had prepaid my reservation the reception could not find my booking and I was asked to pay again which I did not. No air conditioning while the door at the WC could not lock. The god thing was the location. Other than that very basic.

Not going back
The service was good. Big rooms. The AC wasn't strong enough for the room, so it never got cold. The bunk bed wasn't in the best condition, so it shakes. Good lockers. The power outlet might be a bit far from the bed so you better bring an extension Didn't have the breakfast, but it seemed worth It. The worst part ever was the location, I know, it's near termini, but the street was awful, full of garbage everywhere, grafitti in the walls, weird people around... I wouldn't walk around there at night, so I didn't.

Front desk service was incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were clean but nothing super comfortable or nice.
