The Yellow in Rome is one of those hostels that is constantly pushing the boundaries of what a hostel can be: party hotspot, tattoo parlour, hair salon, foodie magnet and local tour guide with the best off-the-beaten track tips in town. Here are just a few reasons why you’ll love staying here…
The Hostel Roofterrace is 👌
Feeling wholesome? The morning rooftop yoga sessions at The Yellow will have you glowing all day, and you’ll be treated to some stunning views of the city at the same time. If you’re more of a night owl, head up there at sunset armed with beer and cheap pizza and you’re sure to meet some new travel buddies 🍕🍕🍕
The Hostel Has Its Own Tattoo Parlour And Hair Salon
…for when you urgently need to commemorate your most recent travel adventure, or just dye your hair pink! Click on the vid to see what happens when we challenged a group of hostellers to get their dream tattoo… whilst skyping their parents! Special thanks to Mr Belly Tattoo Shop and CRH Hub.
Fancy Dorms On A Backpacker’s Budget
If you’re looking for a bit of luxury on a budget, you can choose from Backpacker, Globetrotter or Flashpacker dorms. And if you manage to impress the staff with your art, you can even blag a free stay!
This Hostel Knows How To Throw A Party – Every. Single. Night!
“Loud is the new Black” is The Yellow’s motto, and with a late-night hostel bar, partying ‘til 4am with fellow travellers and locals is the norm. The hostel also hosts some pretty awesome live music nights, featuring local and international artists. The staff are experts on the wildest parties in Rome, so if you’re feeling brave, join them for the infamous “Rollin’ Bar” pub crawl – a party bus armed with shot glasses, a stripper pole and an outrageous bus driver who will get your pre-party going!
If you’re looking for something a little tamer, try the “In the Dark” city tour, which lets Yellow guests see Rome’s coolest sites by moonlight for FREE.
It’s A Design Hostel that doesn’t take itself too seriously
Have you ever seen such beautiful floors? Design fans will love exploring The Yellow, with its vintage chic furniture, quirky original features and plants growing out of the walls.
The hostel breakfast is THE BEST
Got a hangover? Fear not, The Arcade is transformed in to an airy café by day where you can dig in to their “rehab” breakfast, sip on (several) Bloody Marys and chat with your mates about WTF happened last night…
Treat Yo’self To A Private Room
Every traveller needs a little TLC now and again, and the private rooms in the annex directly opposite the dorms are the perfect place to treat yo’self whilst still enjoying the hostel’s sociable vibes. Private rooms come with en-suite bathroom, mini fridge, safe, hair dryer, air con and a TV with MTV (cue reruns of Jersey Shore!).
The bathrooms are classy AF
Free hairdryers, full-length mirrors in every room and the fancy shared and private bathrooms. Yup, The Yellow knows how to make its guests feel a million dollars.
Reviews from your fellow travellers:
“I seriously can’t fault the Yellow. I had such a fab time here – my favourite hostel of the whole of my 2 month Europe trip. The staff are so nice and helpful, the rooms are awesome, the food in the bar in unreal (pancakes and bacon!), the party atmosphere is wicked, the location is amazing and I just loved it.”
“Great party atmosphere, good food, good drink, good club. Great base to head out into Rome and also escape the crowds.”
“It was my first time travelling alone, but I never felt lonely! The staff are all wonderful, ready to help and to party along with the guests. The walking tours are very informative and entertaining and there’s never a dull moment during the evening with a different party every night! I will definitely stay there the next time I’m in Rome!”
Whether you want to party, relax or explore the city, The Yellow has it covered.
