Best hostel to stay at in Rome. The place is super clean and has awesome scanning cards that are wicked. It also has the best party you're going to find in Rome at the bar downstairs, but in general Rome is not a party city.

Bar is far too noisy at night! I could easily hear the ruckus from my room. Moreover, the staff was not overly professional. For example, a worker came into the our room at 3 in the morning, turned on the lights, and conversed with a hosteler in order to reconcile a booking mistake the Yellow had made. When informed about this incident the next day, the staff merely offered a half-hearted apology without taking corrective measures. Would not return.

Best hostel ever!!! Such a great place for meeting people from all over the world. The staff was extremely friendly and cooperative. During the day they offered great tours through Rome and at night they partied with the guests at their bar. Sooo awesome!

We had a great time here. The room was lovely and the bar served good food. It is very near the train station which made getting around very easy.

This was by far my favourite hostel to stay at within Europe. The staff are young, lively and up for a party! The whole system is brilliant and all the info you need about tourist attractions is available. The bar is a lot of fun and the food is cheap but yummy!

Great hostel with an attached bar that is a blast in the evenings. Located very near to the train station, but not so close to significant sights. The hostel map provided was very useful and the wifi connection was superb around the whole hostel.

A hostel for party, weak security as my adaptor have been missing and service level is below average in world standard. But for Italy standard should consider average.

We had a great stay at the yellow! Very clean and modern rooms that felt more like a hotel than a hostel. The staff were great and the atmosphere was fantastic. I would absolutely recommend a stay here!

Without a doubt, the best hostel I have had the fortune of visiting in Europe! Just a short 5 minute walk to the metro and availability to all of the sights you can imagine! The bar across the street is awesome, definitely worth checking out! Highly recommend staying here for your travels to Rome! Seriously cannot be beat.

Great hostel with great vibe. The bar is always lively with entertainment and people. Close to metro and within walking distance of many attractions (if you like walking, approx 40min by foot to colosseum). Showers are a bit small, rooms were pretty grotty, mainly due to people staying in them but not cleaned by cleaners daily. Stayed here more for the vibe and bar and was not dissapointed. Can be loud at night so if you're looking for peace and quiet, consider alternative

Definitely the best hostel in Rome as you can tell by all the people who come to the bar each nigh and are staying in different hostels. It's a big hostel with a great bar. Spent every night in Rome at the bar...it was so good there wasn't really any reason to leave. The dorms are separated from the bar so they stay perfectly quite at night if you need to get sleep. Loved the hostel and will only stay here when i come to Rome

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.
