How to get there

Colosseum, Roman Forum, San Pietro in Vincoli, Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, the shopping Mecca Spanish steps, Trevi Fountain, the classy Via Veneto can all be reached on foot in half an hour approx. From Termini station:
Alessandro Downtown Hostel is located within a 5 minute walking distance from Termini train station. It's very easy to reach the hostel:
1. Exit Termini Station by Track No.22 (with the train tracks at your back, track No.22 is on the left hand side of the station).
2. Make a left on Via Giolitti, and then take your second right down Via C.Cattaneo.
3. Continue down Via Catttaneo, until you reach #23 (will be on the left hand side of the street).

From Fiumicino Airport (Leonardo da Vinci):
* Follow the signs for 'Ai Treni' to the platform, buy a ticket for the non-stop train to Termini (Leonardo Express). You can purchase from the ticket window, vending machines, or tobacco store near the platform. Leonardo Express leaves every 30 minutes.
Duration: about 30 minutes

* A slightly cheaper (but slower) option is to take local train that has the final destination of either Orte or Fara Sabina. It will stop at a few small local stations heading into Rome, but it does not stop at Termini Train Station. You need to get off at Tiburtina station (about the 8th stop), and then follow the directions “from Tiburtina” and then “from Termini”. Trains leave approximately every 15-30 minutes.
Duration: about 1hr-1.5hrs

IMPORTANT when you take train:
Don't forget to validate your ticket with the little orange or yellow boxes before you get on the train!

* If you take a taxi, it is highly recommended to take it from official airport taxi stand, not private ones.
Duration: about 30-40 minutes (depends on traffic situation)

From Ciampino Airport (Usually RyanAir and Easyjet):
* The easiest way to reach city centre from Ciampino is to take a shuttle bus which departs after every flight.
We recommend Terravision service:
Duration: about 45 minutes

Ciampino airport transfers
* The blue Cotral Bus service connects Ciampino Airport to the Anagnina metro (underground) station and costs approximately. Tickets can be purchased at the vending machines located at the bus stop or inside the airport. Once you arrive at Anagnina, buy a metro ticket and get off at the Termini stop (about the 15th stop). Follow the directions “From Termini”
Duration: about 1hr-1.5hrs

* If you take a taxi, it is highly recommended to take it from airport taxi stand, not private ones.
Duration: about 30-40 minutes (depends on traffic situation)

From Tiburtina Train Station:
* Follow the signs for the Metro (Underground). Take Linea B (Line B) in the direction of Laurentina and get off at Termini station (the 4th stop). Then follow the directions “From Termini”.

The rooms are ok and they have a private bathroom with hair dryers and all you need. You can use as well the locker but you need to have your own lock. The breakfast costs 4 euros and it's not worth it, the kind of ham is thick and a bit disgusting and they just have white bread so i recommend you to buy your breakfast in the supermarket. It's very close from the train station, just 3min walking and quite easy to find. The staff is very relaxed and helfull and they have free maps on the reception and information tours in case you need. The wi-fi is very bad because i was in the 4th floor but its the reception it works very well. You can leave your bag after the check-out and with the payment you need to give them 5 euros for the key (you got the money back after you leave)

It was a great pleasure to stay in Downtown Hostel during my visit in Rome. I arrived at Rome around midnight. But, I was able to check in and settle down very quickly. Ibam, as one of the staffs, was very helpful in that and throughout my stay.

Air conditioning sucks, its only on from 7pm til 4am, and only is on for spurts at a time. I ended up sleeping on the floor in front of the AC.

This was the last hostel I stayed at on my backpacking journey.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There are hairdryers included int he bathroom and internet is free.

So it is pretty huge, and pretty famous, so there are A LOT of people here. But they have plenty of bathrooms and showers that are never all full. That get cleaned every day at 3. So that is really nice.

The rooms are nice and clean. Just make sure you know check in is at 3 pm so that you can plan accordingly.

All of the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. They have a few south Asian guys that work from midnight to 7 am that are really sweet and make you feel very comfortable.

The price is good for what you are getting. It is only a 3 minute walk to the metro station. That helps a lot while in Rome. And if you want to walk, it is in a fairly good location. The city is not that hard to walk through and you will always find astounding buildings while walking that are not on the tourist maps or in the guides.

And if you are interested in going out, they host a pub crawl. It is organized for you, so if you are traveling alone or even with people, it is a great chance to get to know fellow travelers from around the world.

they have a breakfast buffet (3 euros) from 7:30 to 10. It is not a 5 star buffet, but you get unlimited toast, jam, cereal, coffe, milk, tea, juice, fresh fruit, ham, and cheese.

They have a brown bag lunch that you can buy. This is the first hostel I have seen that does this. It is a good option for a busy day.

And they have free pasta every tuesday, thursday, friday, saturday. Free pasta is good pasta.

I highly recommended staying here.

Overall, the hostel was quite good. The rooms and washrooms were clean, the location good, and the staff relatively friendly. I suggest, however, to include some basic fruit in your breakfast (apples, bananas).

Value for money to have free pasta dinner and breadfast though the portion of pasta may not be enough for a guy. There is a lift in the building and overall facilities are ok. Internet service is always full.

Great hostel - has everything you could want: nice rooms and bathrooms, brilliant central location, free pasta for dinner was amazing. But breakfast could be improved as a bread roll and jam isn't much of a breakfast. Would definitely stay here again though and would recommend to all travellers!
