We were expecting a party hostel due to the great reviews and did not get that at all. You get a 50€ fine if you drink in your room first off. That really kills the mood, the bar and people were alright, good food and cheap drinks. Our bathroom door did not even close and the lock was broken. The keys would never work when i wanted to go in the lounge room. The staff were terrible and didn't even give us a map or tell us where anything was. I would not go back ever,
Great Hostel really enjoyed my stay. The staff were awesome and the bar had a great atmosphere. I especially enjoyed the Beer Pong with Red Solo Cups and all, they led to many drunken nights and good times.
Had an amazing time here and met a really cool group of people from all over the world. The accommodation was great - very clean and tidy. The bar downstairs has a great atmosphere and is the perfect place to meet new people! As a single female traveller, I felt completely safe here! The staff are super friendly, the travellers merry and the atmosphere buzzy. Would recommend this hostel to anyone passing through Rome!

There was a large mold on the ceiling and parts of the ceiling were falling down continuously during our stay. Thats why we did not want to sleep in the bed that is under that part so had to combine the remaining 2 beds. But it was a fun hostel, the atmosphere was good. Comparing to other hostels I stayed, it was the most dirty one. About the location, it was very close to the trainstation and also the subway too.
Some private rooms are really small in b block. All private rooms generally without daylight , you may miss the time. !! There is only one towel for body you should deposite 10€ for extra towel for hair??!!! Staff , atmosphere, bar is great. Breakfast is also great for 5€. Some rooms in different building but security is ok. Too close to Termini central station. wireless signal is not so good in some rooms, you may not get gsm signal in some rooms. Generally young student stay in hostel.
Nice hostel, good atmosphere. Definitely will be staying here again!
Great staff and location. It's a bit of a party hostel and I felt a little old, but not a bad option.
The flusher in the bathroom was broken which made it a bit disgusting to use. I liked the lounge area because it was comfortable and not for partying. I didn't party here, but it seems like that's mostly what this hostel is all about and hard to meet others if you don't like partying. I liked the bar/restaurant, it was nice to hang out there even if alone.
Loved staying here. Great staff. Big lockers which was nice. The bar was great for meeting people. Definitely would recommend it!

It is located close to the Termini station, however I had a bit of problem finding the hostel as it is loacted in one of the streets near the termini. Great atmosphere to make new friends in the hostel. Most of the staff was good. Rooms are cleaned everyday which is good. HOWEVER THEY CAN IMPROVE THE CLEANLINESS OF THE BATHROOMS IN THE ENSUITE ROOMS. THE BATHROOMS IN THE ROOMS HAD CLOGGING PROBLEM AND WERE NOT CLEAN. All in all a great hostel which I would definitely stay at next time!
i got bedbugs super bad using their 'clean' sheets they insist that you use. it really was not very pleasant. other than that, it was a decent hostel. the bar was packed every night, lots of fun.
Easy to get to. Good atmosphere. If you're travelling through Rome I'd recommend it to you. Best place to stay!
The hostel was great and vibrant. guest mostly in college or mid 20's, but a fun time. The hostel staff are from all over the world and are very friendly. The bar downstairs was always full of very friendly people from all over the world visiting Rome. I would definitely stay here again. Also, it was very close to the Termini Station and the metro.
Cool hostel With its own bar, which is not that expensive Rooms are big enough Safe Really close to the termini station and metro station I would recommend this place for sure
We had so much fun! This is defiantly blast if you're in your 20s
This is easily the best hostel in Rome. It is constantly cleaned, has a great lounge with a decent kitchen, and it is conveniently located within 5 min of a metro stop and Roma Termini station. My friend wasn't able to book in time and stayed and a hostel nearby. He was very envious of the amenities, and the atmosphere. The Yellow has a great social scene, so much so that it's not uncommon to meet people staying at other hostels at the bar. The WiFi was great too. I would definitely book again!
It was PERFECT. The location is perfect. Close to the train station. Not far from all famous places. I liked that there is a possibility to get all three meals and it's really good and not expensive. 30 seconds from Hostel you can find a great Italian restaurant. The thing I loved was that you can meet people from all around the world in amazing place. I don't want to know other hostels in Rome because this is the best. The staff is GREAT. I don't know what else to say. JUST GO AND ENJOY.
Great hostel, about a 20 min walk to the colosseum.. met some very awesome people here from all over the world, dorms are bunk beds with roll out lockers under the beds which is awesome.. 5 euro beers at the bar, clean bathrooms and showers. wifi works in the rooms. this is a party hostel.. down stairs but is a bit small but people down there party hard so its fun
This place was so much fun! The social atmosphere is unbeatable and it's super close to everything you need. Not to mention that the food and drinks in the bar are a fantastic value!!
I really liked the location to the train station. It was a little far to the rest of the sights in Rome, but it was nice being near the train station before/after days of traveling. The staff was friendly and helpful. I also liked how they had a restaurant in the hostel that was good and cheap. The hostel was very safe and I liked how I had to wear a wristband so they knew I was a guest.
