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.

Look no further, this hostel is epic. The facilities are awesome and there's a cool bar/restaurant right below. The staff were fantastic as well. I would highly recommend.

Amazing hostel! The bar/restaurant was great. Terrific food (one of the best breakfasts I've ever had). Lunch and dinner options are tasty too. They have the longest happy hour ever. Great location: short walk to the train station, so it's easy to get around Rome (use the Metro). Tons of restaurants and grocery stores near by. If you don't feel like going out at night there are different events at the bar each night.

This hostel is fantastic - all staff here are fantastic and get involved with the bar/club and drinking and are also helpful for any directions etc. Was the best hostel I have been to so far, absolutely loved it and had the best time!

The hostel bar was really amazing and the drinks were very affordable! The rooms themselves were pretty clean but unfortunately the outlet plug beside my bed wasn't working. Overall the hostel was very nice and location was very convenient and only 5 minutes from the Termini station.

The worst hotel/hostel we stayed in Europe. We've been to Madrid, Barcelona, Pamplona, and Paris. No airconditioning, no TV, no cabinets, cement flooring. It feels you get suffocated just trying to get to your room. Just to give you an idea, Motel 6 is 5 Stars and this hostel is 1 Star.

This place is great. The hostel itself is good but it's the hostel bar and nightclub which make the stay unforgettable!! I had three very late nights (3am) at the night club and the dj they had was good and the band even better!!! Wi fi was good and plenty of places to chill out and meet people. If you're traveling solo stay here.

confusing to find due to two locations, and multiple hotels within the same building. Staff was helpful, but did experience a few mishaps ie; room entry card malfunction, and overcharging my credit card. Bathrooms get pretty dirty.

Nice hostel with a good atmosphere. If you want to meet people and have fun, their bar is a great place! We were in a private room in the building across the street, so it was quiet and good to sleep. I'd recommend it!

Fantastic hostel, one of the best in Rome. Great place to meet other travelers and to have a great time at the bar and restaurant. Every night is a party and a fantastic way to meet people.

The Yellow was very very fun, the food was good and the rooms were clean. I would add a mirror to the rooms because the bathrooms get filled up, also the bar could do a little better, there's not even a welcome drink anymore. Besides those things I think it's an amazing choice!

Rooms were a nice size and clean. Location was nice because it's by the Termini so you can hop on a bus anywhere since Rome is big. Bar was always packed with people, sometimes insanely packed you couldn't even move. The staff was not very helpful or friendly we found... They seemed more inclined to drink and hang out amongst themselves at all hours of the day. Nice little outside eating spot though and decent lunch/dinner

The bar is great to meet people, had some awesome parties there! Many Americans, sometimes I felt more in the USA than in Italy (the bar even serves burgers, no pasta). Facilities were good, but the kitchen didn't have a stove or oven so cooking was not an option. Rooms were spacious with big lockers under the bed to put your backpack in and seperate lockers for passport and other small valuables. The bathrooms were very old but clean enough for me.

Loved my time at the yellow. Sooooooo much!!! Al the staff were so friendly and made you feel welcome straight away, and every single night there is an awesome atmosphere at the bar. Best hostel I've been to in Europe so far!! Also very clean. Can't complain about anything!!

The best hostel for nightlife by far and just a great atmosphere, a safe in the room was a fab idea!
