The cleanliness of the bathroom was questionable. There was black dirt in the shower and looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly in weeks. Security was fine apart from confirming my identity when i needed a new room key. I was not asked to state my name when i asked for a replacement card. That was the major security issue. The bar downstairs does a great breakfast and great value for money

Second time staying at the Yellow: it's definitely a party-oriented hostel, so if that's not what you're into you can for sure found other great hostels. Rooms are good, a little stuffy in the summer but you have AC which is amazing, beds are spacious. Zero mirrors in the girls' dorms which is kindof annoying when everyone's trying to get ready in the one bathroom. Checkin took incredibly long (for everyone, we asked others too), so try arriving at like 4pm to avoid the checkin-traffic-jam.

Amazing hostel - rooms were gorgeous and clean and staff were really helpful. Right by the train station, it's easy to get to everywhere you want

An absolute party hostel. Be prepared to use restrooms strewn with puke though.

Excellent party hostel. PARTY HOSTEL. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is not the place. Staff, facilities, and atmosphere were all great. The food is bland but the beer is cheap. Party on !

Neat little bar/club and restaurant attached to the Hostel. Staff is very helpful, friendly and sociable. You don't get your own locker and actually share a luggage room with everyone else. Also, is more expensive for sure, and honestly, if you're looking to party, it's not really worth the money because usually, you find people to party and venture with no matter the hostel, however staying here just guarantees you will find people to party with. Really beautiful hostel though.

Lack of human resources in hostel as the staffs are too busy to serve guest but they are all helpful.

Awesome party. Not so awesome rooms. They were kinda gross with everything being sticky and old. The staff wasn't the friendliest but they ultimately helped with everything.

Definitely the most fun we had on our whole trip! If you visit Rome, you must stay here!! An amazing atmosphere in the bar every night, cheap drinks and we met loads of great people!

Great location. The hostel has cute tips on what to do in and how to get around Rome. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room and bathroom were clean. Just don't do the pub crawl they advertise - it is a waste of money and is actually a party bus (you don't go to any pubs except the pick-up and drop-off point).

Staff seemed hungover and completely unbothered when I checked in, room smelled like chips THE WHOLE 4 DAYS, there was no light/little spot by the wall next to my bunk beds to keep my sleeping stuff, the bathroom light used a sensor so I'd have to keep waving every 30 seconds during my shower. However the Yellow bar is pretty good value, the hostel is clean and the location is really good. I did 2 walking tours provided by the hostel, both by Jacob (the Dane), and he was a really great guide.

The bar is super fun and a great chance to make friends. The room was clean too, just a shame there isnt a full kitchen. We had an amazing time in Rome because of this hostel.

Had a great time at The Yellow! The staff is very friendly and helpful. We did the night time tour which was great! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and seeing all the sites lit up at night made the tour even better. A little far from most of the sites but the staff was very helpful with explaining the transportation systems. Also the food and drink at the bar are a great value and the bartenders are all very friendly!

Great mood in the bar and in general, and a good welcome when you check in. One of the best hostels I've stayed in!

They offer plenty to see and do, The Yellow Bar across the road is a great place to meet people and the hostel is walking distance from the train station.

One of the best hostels we've stayed at in our 6 weeks of travel! The room was great and wifi worked well. The bar with the hostel is excellent - food and drink wise. 9 hour happy hour, you can't really go wrong. It definitely is a place to party. The staff on the bar side were amazing, however, our experience with reception wasn't top notch. We had a couple of questions one afternoon and we were told to come back later. If you stay here, do the Rollin' Bar! Sticky Stan is the man!
