This is not a hostel for people who travel alone or want to make new friends in a normal common room. 1st,because there is no common room; and 2nd,the people always stay in the bar,always in big groups,so its difficult to start a conversation with someone(and music is always loudly);breakfast is very expensive.But is too easy to reach from the station Roma Termini,the locker is a little bit small but very safe, the main points of the city are well explained in the dashboard;good and clean beds.


I booked into this hostel on a whim. It may have been the best decision of my whole trip. This hostel was fun, friendly and kinda crazy! There was a party every night downstairs but the bedrooms were quiet at night. The staff couldnt be more helpful if they tried and the other travellers were just incredible it made my holiday extra special. Thank you Yellow!

A little hike to major sites but nothing a backpacker can't handle. Nothing much happening in term of nightlife in the near area but that doesn't matter because all the nightlife you need is at the hostel. Great to meet travelers and enjoy your time in Rome.


LOVED IT. Fantastic atmosphere. easy to meet people, easy to sleep with no noise. good food at the bar. will stay there again without a doubt!


Perfect Stay in this Hostel. The Yellow Bar is really a difference maker, even it's probably not very characteristic, food-wise expecially, but then again, everything has very honest prices and tastes great, especially the beer! I met so many nice people there, the bar is really the place you wanna go if you travel alone, you might end up sitting next someone from anywhere in the world, and everybody is totally in the right mood for friendship!


Such a great vibe!! Loved every night that I stayed there. Great staff and the night life was awesome!! Definitely would go back :)


Awesome place!! Travelling alone and met so many friends. Wifi gets weak in the night due to so many people down at the bar but that's okay. Had so much fun! Love Jamie the cute bartender


It was a great hostel! Met a lot of people and staff was very up beat and were always smiling. Not really the best hostel to stay at if you don't want to party every night you're there, there's not much to do if you don't want to spend money on drinks or the party bus but hey that's the night life so bring ear plugs and a sleeping mask. Also the food downstairs is SO good so stuff your face there. Really close to the train station and underground so that was a plus.


This is a large party hostel that feels a little impersonal at times. The rooms are spacious and air-conditioned, but the facilities in the girls dorms did not work during my stay (hair dries, hot water), and there were two showers/bathrooms to three rooms of girls staying. The hostel is close to the central station and a little walk to the main sites, so otherwise it was an okay stay.


The staff are great and friendly although service gets really slow at peak hours. The location is a bit far from the tourist attractions when you plan on walking but pretty close to termini station. The lobby, bar/breakfast area is a great place to hang out and meet people and it's generally a younger crowd which makes for a great atmosphere. There's karaoke night!! I really enjoyed my stay here even though it was only one night. I felt safe, welcome, and there's cheap gelato next door!!


AC would be a plus


Excellent hostel, very near Termini train station. Quite far to walk to most of the attractions but easy to get to via metro system. Would definitely stay here again.


Location is very close to Termini. Wifi was down for a day and a half while I was there. Perfect for large groups or for people who are travelling with someone. No atmosphere in the hostel as there is only a quiet area - everyone hangs out at the Yellow bar (which allows entrance to non-hostel clients as well). Bathrooms were old and not really very clean - towels by the showers were often reused even though the "cleaning sheet" has been signed. Room has one fan directed at one bed.


Affordable drinks, strong wifi, and clean rooms. Great hostel to party at. The only downside was it felt too much like an American party. I am traveling out of the States and want to experience Europe and it felt like a party back home. It definitely could have been there was just a bunch of Americans and Canadians during my stay.


If I hadn't been so sick, I really would have enjoyed my stay here. The staff were helpful and friendly, location was close to the train station, and the atmosphere was very social. It would be a perfect place for a single backpacker to go and meet people.


- Hostel located far outside of the main attractions. - Rude staff that was most concerned about leaving their work and to party in the evening - Expensive rooms with no AC or fans! Impossible to sleep during the summer!!


Best type of atmosphere to get a good party going. No need to leave the bar because they have everything you can need and all the people you want to meet are staying in the same hostel. Fun staff, security not hired by the yellow was the only bad experience I had my entire stay.


Awesome hostel. Good environment, something going on every night for free downstairs. A little pricy but I guess that's what you get anywhere in rome for the most part. Loaction is right beside the train station which is nice but probably 30 minutes walking from all the main attractions which isn't terrible.


Awsome hostel, common room, cheap downstairs pub/night club, dont have to pay extra for lockers. If your going to rome but know anything about its history, dont waste good money on the audio tours. Shell out 20€ for the walking tour. Its worth it.


I had a nice stay at the Yellow. Excellent dorms, very clean and organized. The only thing I didn't like was the reception being in a separated building (at least we had just to cross the street cause it's in front of the dorm's building).
