Shower is scalding or freezing, Smelled like urine in room, the walk to the Vatican is an hour and the walk to the Colosseum is 30 min, cool atmosphere in bar underneath and close to train station.

(+) We stayed for 2 nights in 4 bed-female dorm. The room is not big enough, but warm in the winter. There are mirrors, closet, and the bathroom is super clean! We stay in another building of the main hostels, it's a bit noisy at night since near the road, but the security is good! (-) No plugs near the bunkbed. Plugs do exist only near the single beds.

Liked the location and the atmosphere, but my room was far from the showers and during the winter it was not nice to take a shower, also hot water rubs out during the day, which sucks.

the location of the yellow is really good. maybe 5 mins walk from termini. the rooms was good. i was lucky to meet really cool people in mine. the bar at the yellow is really good, but a little small right around the ordering part but still enjoyed it. in the morning they offer a good breakfast at a reasonable price. the location is really easy to walk to the colosseum and other major landmarks in central rome! will stay again xx

Overall was good. But they made me change my room during the stay, saying that I have booked different rooms for my stay, which was not true. I just booked the cheapest for the whole stay.

Thanks for the feedback, it sounds like someone broke the rules while you were here. Our apologies We are a party hostel, so it can get difficult controlling that kind of "behaviour". We hope you still enjoyed your time here in Rome. My best, elena.

This was one of my best experiences in a hostel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was open and fun and it was clean and organized. My friend and I stayed at The Yellow for two nights and loved the location and great vibe. The connected bar/ restaurant was also fantastic! Good food and drinks for a great price. The Yellow is absolutely the best hostel in Rome!

I stayed only one night. That was good. Hostel is fine and clean. Staff and location perfect. The only bad think is the brunks made too much noises and my room was cold in the morning.
