My stay at the Yellow was interesting. Nothing bad to report as it was extremely standard as far as youth hostels go. Pretty easy to get there from the airport. Upon arrival, there is a lot going on. With their own bar downstairs, there is action literally all night. The WiFi wasn't working and neither was the hot water in the shower...which was very cold. But "when in Rome" you just gotta go for it. I'd say the staff was generally nice. You are provided with your own locking save which is nice.
Good hostel, only downside was the room got warm
Look no further, this hostel is epic. The facilities are awesome and there's a cool bar/restaurant right below. The staff were fantastic as well. I would highly recommend.
The hostel bar was really amazing and the drinks were very affordable! The rooms themselves were pretty clean but unfortunately the outlet plug beside my bed wasn't working. Overall the hostel was very nice and location was very convenient and only 5 minutes from the Termini station.
The worst hotel/hostel we stayed in Europe. We've been to Madrid, Barcelona, Pamplona, and Paris. No airconditioning, no TV, no cabinets, cement flooring. It feels you get suffocated just trying to get to your room. Just to give you an idea, Motel 6 is 5 Stars and this hostel is 1 Star.

This place is great. The hostel itself is good but it's the hostel bar and nightclub which make the stay unforgettable!! I had three very late nights (3am) at the night club and the dj they had was good and the band even better!!! Wi fi was good and plenty of places to chill out and meet people. If you're traveling solo stay here.
confusing to find due to two locations, and multiple hotels within the same building. Staff was helpful, but did experience a few mishaps ie; room entry card malfunction, and overcharging my credit card. Bathrooms get pretty dirty.
Fantastic hostel, one of the best in Rome. Great place to meet other travelers and to have a great time at the bar and restaurant. Every night is a party and a fantastic way to meet people.
Rooms were a nice size and clean. Location was nice because it's by the Termini so you can hop on a bus anywhere since Rome is big. Bar was always packed with people, sometimes insanely packed you couldn't even move. The staff was not very helpful or friendly we found... They seemed more inclined to drink and hang out amongst themselves at all hours of the day. Nice little outside eating spot though and decent lunch/dinner
The bar is great to meet people, had some awesome parties there! Many Americans, sometimes I felt more in the USA than in Italy (the bar even serves burgers, no pasta). Facilities were good, but the kitchen didn't have a stove or oven so cooking was not an option. Rooms were spacious with big lockers under the bed to put your backpack in and seperate lockers for passport and other small valuables. The bathrooms were very old but clean enough for me.
Loved my time at the yellow. Sooooooo much!!! Al the staff were so friendly and made you feel welcome straight away, and every single night there is an awesome atmosphere at the bar. Best hostel I've been to in Europe so far!! Also very clean. Can't complain about anything!!
The best hostel for nightlife by far and just a great atmosphere, a safe in the room was a fab idea!

This hostel had a bit of a American frat sort of feel which was a turn off for me, but other people might like it. There's a bar where people hang out and it's close to the main train station which can connect you to the rest of the city.
Had an amazing time staying at the yellow, great atmosphere, the bar area is really fun at night, really good food and the staff are friendly
Best hostel I've stayed at! Such amazing people and such a great place to meet friends. Would definitely come back
The Yellow is the place to stay in Rome. 5 Nights there were the absolutely best time of my entire trip. Everything was great. The only things stopping it from being perfect is the lack of AC (Rome is hot) and the lack of curtains on the beds. I don't know what to say, only that if you don't stop here you are missing out. It's a party hostel and perfect on that sense. If that is not what you're looking for, maybe its not for you. Rooms are still quiet at night, everyone is at the bar until late.
If you want a Frat house then this place is for you. Lack of toilets and showers meant you had to que. Other guests were very boisterous and young.
Stayed at the yellow 4 years ago and it's only gotten better since. Staff is friendly, location is central (close to termini) and facilities are clean. The bar downstairs is happening. One of the better hostels in Europe by far.
One of the best Hostels I've ever stayed! If you plan on going there, ask for Siciliano. He s the Soul of the party! Not only him, but all the staff is amazing. Made so many good friends there! Can't wait to come back!
