I guess it depends on what you're looking for but the yellow just wasn't for me. If you like hanging out and chilling with interesting people. It's hard to do that here. They close the outside portion of the bar at midnight and force everyone inside or down the block. I get it, people are loud. But the bar is a disaster. So many inconsiderate people so little space. Location is good but could be closer to the sights. Imagine staying inside a nightclub, if that sounds fun enjoy the yellow.
The Yellow is a good party hostel if you want that. The room I stayed in was in the reception building and was quiet and clean. The staff kinda sucked. The bar across the street gets busy at night and the outside patio closes at midnight so you're squished into the already crowded bar. The breakfast is good in the morning though. Coffee isn't bad.
I will never stay at The Yellow again. On my first night I receive bed bug bites. The staff moved me to another room but did nothing to resolve their bed bug situation. Even when I told one of the cleaners about my bed, she said ok changed the sheets and left the same blanket on the bed! I know they gave that bed to another traveller that night and did not inform the rest of the room. Beware of room D57 on the 5th floor across the street from the main office. Showers are clean disgusting too.
If you are looking for a place to party with other young travellers than this is the spot for you. It's hard to sleep though if you want an early morning and are skipping on the 24 hour bar. The female staff were very friendly. The rooms are big but pretty much the bare essentials. I did like though that they had lockers under the bed big enough to fit my whole pack. The bouncers were also super nice there. I would go there again. Especially since it's a 5 minute walk from the main train
the location was awesome just a few block from the main metro/bus/train terminal. the hop on bus stops were down the street and plenty of places for shopping or walking or eating very close by. staff was great, place was clean and wifi was a little iffy at times but it got the job done. love the yellow, love rome, would totally come back!
I paid for a private room and was charged for double the cost. Ok I understand that double rooms require I pay for 2 buy this place costed more than some nice hotels. OK maybe I didn't read the find print somewhere but I got charged $700 for 5 days in Rome at this hostel. Seems a little high.. I believe this needs to be made more clear on the website. Place was quiet enough after midnight when the bar closed with the windows closed. I had a room on the streett side. Room was small.
the seating outside the street at the bar makes the hostel. Good friendly vibes and so easy to get chatting and mingle with the people. Great street and atmosphere. The bar was good, except the male staff behind the bar are very arrogant and generally rude. especial the italians. the female staff are all friendly however. The rooms are nice and clean, bathrooms basic. there is a party bus tour, which is pure cringe. pretty expensive rates for rooms in general. but half decent social hostel
The yellow is a party hostel but at a cost. The room was dirty and the bathroom was worse, only hot water, which is cool until it gets so hot it burns your skin. The staff tries to help but they are overwhelm with all the ins and outs. The bar which is down stairs is cool but also dirty and the bouncers are very bossy for no reason .
This was an incredible hostel, great environment to meet people if you're traveling alone. The hostel offers so many things like bike tours, day/night walking tours, party bus etc. Great nightlife at the hostel too, I had a blast every single night!
Easy to get to from Roma termini. Clean and secure. Staff weren't that helpful. The European woman staff member with long mousey blond her was rude - made you feel like an inconvenience. The staff were the let down of my stay at The Yellow.
The facilities attached to the hostel were great, the bar was cheap and the food in their sister Italian restaurant opposite was good, the bathroom was filthy. This was the most expensive hostel I have stayed in and have slept in many a cleaner, cheaper, friendlier hostel.
Great party hostel which is what I was looking for in Rome. So nice having the bar just downstairs. Walking tour was also great and the staff helped with anything you needed
Located very close to the train station and is within walking distance to the Coluseum (25 min) and St. Peters (35 min). Rooms were spacious, with the opportunity to lock away your suitcase and a safety deposit box for your valuables. You can get a cheap breakfast across the street. It is a party hostel, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place for you.
I only had the chance to visit The Yellow on a stop over, however the location and atmosphere is perfect! It seemed a lively place and perfect to meet fellow travellers. I arrived late at night to be met by a young european guy on the desk who really did not seem interested in serving me at all. It was a chore for him to inform me of necessary information before chucking my passport back onto the desk top. I know jobs can be mundane but really?
Ok so it's a little pricy (including the bar unfortunately) but you are guaranteed to have a great time here. Plenty of people extended their stays after seeing the city just to hang out at the hostel. Good location near termini but a bit far from the sights (Rome is huge so not much you could do) about that, walking distance to the station is awesome. Highly recommend this hostel.
the stay here was great, I met so many people and made many friends. the location was good right next to the main station and the bar downstairs made it really easy to meet people. security was great had somewhere go lock my belongings and a safety Deposit box for valuables. the staff were helpful. the shower was the only disappointment as it was in its own room and so it became really hot after showering as there was no ventilation and you needed another shower from the sweat. would stay again!
No complaints at all. This place is awesome. Staff is so friendly and fun. If you are looking to party and meet lots of people, this is the place!
It was perfect hostel. I really liked to stay in there. If you are trying to find a hostel clean, party atmoshphere, this hostel is just for you. Enjoy it.
Really nce and accommodating staff keep up the good work
