Great place to stay and meet new people. After traveling and backpacking on my own it was fun to relax at the hostel bar and chat with people from all over. Very friendly bunch. Also the wifi is great.


Best place to stay in Rome! The staff is friendly, speaks very good English and I.met some amazing people, both in the room and at the bar downstairs! Will sure book again when I go back to Rome!


Was a great stay everything was really good and the staff were helpful and really nice


The hostel was generally pretty clean and the all female dorms had good facilities. The bed's aren't made which is a bit of a pain when you arrive and if you get a bottom bunk you can't sit up in it, which isn't the end of the world. The bar is nice, the food's decent and the food/drink prices are average + for the city but it seems to close at whatever hour they choose. There was a nice Dutch guy on reception but the other staff were kinda aloof. Good facilities, mediocre hostel experience.


We only spent one night in The Yellow before catching flights home but had a really good experience. There were just 2 of us and were supposed to be in a dorm but The Yellow upgraded us to a private for free. Everyone was really friendly and, though we didn't stop by, the bar was bumping when we walked home at 1am. Rooms were pretty clean and very comfortable. Seems like a great party hostel where I would def stay again.


Place has got good location soo close to termini station (the main railway and bus station)and staff is very helpful and friendly...


The yellow was an awesome place to meet people from all over. The staff were all really friendly and the location could not have been more convenient in terms of travel. The food and drinks were reasonably priced and tasted amazing. Lastly, Kris had the nicest ass I'd ever seen and for that I am forever grateful- everything was amazing and strongly advise anyone to stay here but book in advance!

It's a fantastic hostel! I lived some unique 3 nights with very unexpected things happening,as you get to know a lot of people and the bar's a good meeting point too. If you're travelling alone, just take some time to get to speak to people and you'll see it's so easy! And hostel organizes bus parties and other events which you can also join if you feel like partying.


The bathrooms were dirty and smelly and the covers on the bunk beds were dirty.


Choose this hostel in Rome!! Nice rooms, fun bar, cheap meals. Only downside is the kitchen is basic so you can't really cook in it.


I stayed in a 6-bed all women's room and also a 10-bed mixed room (very last minute and availability was not as great, so I just had to make due). Both rooms were very spacious and kept pretty clean. Sheets and beds were fairly comfortable, but top bunks are really low so you can't sit up if you have a lower bunk. Easy location, food at the bar is good, and the outside patio is great to relax and meet people. Pools of water accumulated in the showers and/or the water is scalding hot though.


A pretty basic hostel but it had a good atmosphere. The bar downstairs was fun.


From the moment we arrived the staff were energetic., friendly and welcoming. The rooms were very clean with comfy beds. The bar offered amazing value for money on both food and drink making it a great place to be in the evenings and meet people from the hostel.

Really good place. Clean and good location. 20mins walk to the Spanish steps or you can train it easily. The bar is going off every night! Lots of tours, bar crawls etc for a big hostel having the bar there makes it really easy to meet other people. I really liked this place.


Not as clean as the pictures make it appear. Small rooms and I even had a superior ensuite room. Overall, good hostel.


cok temiz guzel bir hostel. termini ye cok yakin. her türlü ihtiyacınızı cok rahat sağlayabilirsiniz.


Great hostel, good atmosphere, really easy to meet people and plenty of activities going on to keep people busy!


The Yellow is a normal hostel with average service. It is good for as a BB, but expect no more.


We had a great time at yellow mainly because of the bar and club downstairs along with the other travellers we met. Unfortunately the female staff were very unpleasant to us for some reason however the rest of the staff including the breakfast waiting staff were lovely! Rooms were fine but with no air con, bathrooms were so small and normally not very clean! But if you are looking a bit of a party then this is the place to go! Not far from main train station either with is handy!


The yellow was pretty average..the breakfast (eggs and bacon) downstairs was served cold and the drinks weren't cheap, our check out was at 10 but by 9:30 am there was someone in already asking to put his bag in my locker cause they told him to check in..I still had half an hour and wasn't ready yet but he still asked me to remove my stuff, never has happened at any other hostel! The bathrooms wasnt that clean but the linen was! Wifi good and room was spacious with big lockers! Average.
