You're awesome! Thank you so much! Hopefully seeing you soon then :-) Regards, Amparo


Very nice hostel with very nice staff! Only thing I would comment on is check in should be earlier than 1:30pm as we got there at 6am after a 22 hour train journey and all we wanted was some sleep!

Hello, thanks for your review! Sorry to hear you weren't able to sleep upon arrival, it's because people need to check out and then our housekeeping need to clean the rooms. Good to see it didn't affect the rest of your stay and you liked us and the hostel! Safe travels, Amparo


Bathrooms were a bit cramped, pretty dirty. But that may be due to patrons at the time of stay, otherwise perhaps they may be generally on top of cleanliness. Hard to say. I liked that there was a bar/restaurant attached, good fun place to mingle with other travelers.


Amazing time at Yellow with the best people I've met. Awesome fun staff and you'll be surprised how clean the place is despite being a party hostel. Was really sad to leave :(


Frame is good lookin

Hello there!! I would like to thank you a lot for this review. We love to see reviews like this :) Glad to hear you liked all the facilities and that you enjoyed everything about your stay. We hope to see you soon again! Regards, Amparo


Great location and the easy access to every thing .because it is a crowded hostel i think the showers and toilets should be cleaned twice a day .but generally i strongly recommend it. short walking distance to termini is an excelent possible to reach the metro and buses. there is a good supermarket just a few meteres from the hostel .

Great to see a review like this! We clean the bathrooms in the morning, afternoon and also during the night, but i will pass the message on to our housekeeping just in case. We love our location as well, it's very important for us that everything is in reach for our guests. We hopefully see you soon again. Regards, Amparo


Nice hostel in a convenient location... The rooms were very clean and well kept. The bar has a nice and friendly atmosphere great for meeting other travellers. However if you don't enjoy bars there aren't many other areas for mingling.

Loved it! Nice place, rooms, staff. We had some problems with the toilets that we not fixed, but it didnt make my staying bad. The bar and pub are awesome!

Hi there, thanks a lot for your review :) Come back soon to enjoy our bar again! Regards, Amparo


I had a great experience at this hostel. the beds were comfy and clean, the showers were great and the cafe/bar had great food and coffee for probably the cheapest prices in Rome. the location was also fantastic - anything famous was a 3 min walk and then short train ride away. plenty of great food and shops nearby as well. awesome hostel!

Comfortable stay at great location. Hostel is always full and has a very busy and bustling vibe. The staff and facilities were good.

We're always happy to hear when someone has a great stay. So thank you for letting us know and we hope to see you again soon.


Only stayed one night. Was fine. Bathrooms and showers needed a good scrub. The light and socket by every bed was great. A better vibe than the last placed I stayed in Rome. Location is next to termini which is useful.

Hey there, thanks for you review. Great to hear you liked the hostel despite your short stay, hopefully seeing you soon again for a longer one! We're all about good vibes here and it's glad to know you enjoyed it. Regards, Amparo


Overrated hostel. Is close to Termini but far from all touristic places in Rome. There's no common area, just a bar where the beer is really expensive and there's no discount for who's hosted there! Staff works as they are doing a favor for you. Not enough plugs for everyone in the room. And the worst: i lost my flight, i was desperate and the guy in the reception didn't even try to help me, just told me to call the airline from a payphone. I wouldn't recommend at all.


I stayed 4 nights at this hostel and to be honest I can't fault it. When we arrived me and my 2 friends had booked a 6 bed dorm and it turned out we were upgraded to a private! That had its pros and cons... I think we were in the quiet part of the hostel, therefore we got told off for being loud at 3am, not what you expect from a party hostel!! Although apart from that we had a really good stay, without the bar/club across the road it wouldnt have been so enjoyable!


Yellow hostel is the best!!!

You're awesome! Thank you very much!!! Regards, Amparo


We really enjoyed our stay, staff was great and food was good. The downstairs club area was pretty awful smelling, i think that detered alot of people from going down there.
