no light to each bed so that at early morning you have to move towards the exit to get light where there is a sensor for an automatic light situated and it may disturb other still sleeping hostellers. The kitchen is too small and trash bins are not classified so that both bins are filled with plastic, paper, food and others. the kitchen was suddenly closed without noticed for cleaning. Others are all right.

There were no curtains or privacy screenings on the beds, so when other guests got up at 5am and turned on all the lights to get ready to leave it woke everyone else in the room up. Also the lockers in the rooms require an actual padlock to securely close. If you have anything with a thinner cord or smaller bar then you can still open the lockers with the lock on.

Not a place I would recomend to traveling students. Not great location. The room smelled weird. And I was always worried about my stuff. Very disappointed compared to the last hostel I booked through this site.

Dear guest, It is regretted to receive your review based only on negative phases. We DO care about saftey. In our hostel we have video surveillance system in corridor and common spaces, fire extinguishers, fire proof doors, smoke detectors. There are lockers in dorm rooms and each guest can use a locker (with guest's own padlock). Location-wise, we are situated in 5 minute walking distance from Rome's main station Termini. We are confident our location is very convenient for our guests who come explore Rome. This eterna city has so many places to visit and see. In reality, major part of them have rated our location very positively. We also program evening events in order to help our guests to meet each other and socialize. It is truly regrettable all these features that we make efforts to create have been ignored.. We are sorry our place was not for you. However, importantly we hope the same you made a good holiday in Rome. Sincerely yours, Alessandro Palace & Bar
