There was no hot water when I arrived, which was a big inconvenience, but they had it fixed within 24 hours (though one of the guests in the room said there had been no hot water the past 2 days). Other than that, the hostel was nice! Perfect location!

Absolutely awesome stay at the Yellow, perfect place to end my 5 months of continuous travel around europe, They really made my last days in Rome something special. Really awesome how they have the share your talent, stay for free policy as well, was happy to be able to make a film with them, and dance for the other people there, had a ton of fun with that. Great time, great fun, stay at the yellow!

The hostel is overall very good. It offers a good value for money, with great facilities and staff; the cleanliness could be a bit better though. You should also offer a breakfast option for your guests. The pub is OK but sometimes you want something a bit cheaper than a conventional cafe (and that's why you have chosen to stay in a hostel :)).

Upon arrival everything looks just too fantastic. Great crew, great atmosphere and everything looks more than satisfying. Once you checked-in you will be guided to your room. A dirty room that is, with thin walls where you can enjoy the bar music and happy drinking ppl all night. There are 2 extra doors in that room one contains a tiny space with the shower without hooks or anything... VERY inconvenient. The other door contains a even smaller space with the toilet and sink. Qualitysafes in room.

Great hostel with a really fun bar and a great drinking bus tour. Rooms were good and clean and it was close to everywhere important. Main criticism would be that the kitchen is really just a kettle and a couple of microwaves. Would definitely stay here again!

AMAZING hostel. upon arriving, we were upgraded to a private 3-person room. It felt like a 5-star hotel to me. I loved it. If you want to be near Termini, this is the perfect location. Its about a 15 minute walk from the heart of the city, but if you have an early or late flight, being near the train station is a plus. The employees are all SO friendly and helpful. I loved my stay here!

I had a great stay at the yellow and was very impressed by the whole experience. Met some fun travelers and had a great time. Is very close to termini station and convenient for most things either walking or metro. The only disappointment was the kitchen was really just two microwaves. Apart from that the bar was really cool as well.

Bar is cool and conducive to meeting travelers and locals. Big cages under beds that will fit a backpacking bag and more. Bring your own lock or buy one from the hostel (€2-3?). Small safes in rooms for valuables. Hairdryers provided, and a reasonably large area with mirrors and chairs, in the female dorms at least. Very small rooms, if everyone doesn't put their bags in the cages there's not enough room to walk.

Good party hostel, the bar is really good with afordable prices and a good atmosphere. Not a good place for meeting people though, there's no hostel life besides the bar at night so as a solo traveller your only chance will be to meet people in your room. My room had 2 sockets for 8 people, so good luck charging your phone at night. The halls outside the dorms have big doors so it's considerably noisy, earplugs are a must. Showers had no hooks which was very unconfortable.

A somewhat cool hostel in the Middle of the Rome city. Very near to the Termini and even the staff is friendly with good English. What's better is that we got a free upgrade into a private room. Much appreciated!

The Yellow was everything I expected and more! Everyone on staff was so friendly and fun to be with. The food was really good, not what you'd expect at a hostel. Definitely try the Parmesan garlic fries, those were my favorite! I stayed in an all girl dorm and it was so clean! The bathrooms are ensuite and there is a long vanity mirror with blow dryers. It felt like such a luxury! Over all The Yellow is a fun place to just chill or party, whatever you're looking for, they can accommodate.

It's a wonderful hostel and I would definitely stay there again. If you've been to Porto/Lisbon and stayed in 'Yes' hostel --> well, it's same style. We were first scared it would be very noisy at night and that we would not be able to sleep because of the bar, but it's certainly not like that, so don't worry. Location is perfect and price/quality = awesome. Recommended.

The Yellow is a great hostel! I stayed in the 4-bedroom female dorm and it was very neat and clean. The bar/restaurant downstairs made it super easy to met people. Perfect place for anyone traveling solo!

Cool staff. The bathrooms were awful. Not a place to rest, just to party.

i had an amazing time at the yellow! All the staff was really friendly and actually became my friends on the trip. I was a girl traveling solo and this hostel was great for meeting people instantly. The bar is really fun at night and allows you to party without having to leave the hostel. the atmosphere and vibe of The yellow is great for young, social travelers that want to experience the city and meet awesome people. in addition, if you are a more quiet person the rooms are silent.

I had a good stay at the yellow. The place was clean and the room has everything you need, nothing else. The shower in the room is really tight though and it makes it hard to get changed in it, it is so tight that a lot of water will splash in your towel and clothes if you bring it in with you. Most f the staff was cool and helpful. A lot of the same people hang out at the bar every night and the guys helping with the party atmosphere do not really help you at all, they have their own cliques.
