Only thing is over 30€ is pretty expensive but I must say its a really great hostel to party and meet peeps! Pretty cool dorms with safe lockers and most of the time AC! Sick bar that makes this place unique! Pretty good restaurent, not too expensive with good food! Definitively a great hostel to go in Rome! ENJOY YOURSELF!

Incredibly clean, and my all female 6 person dorm had no bunk beds, a nice ensuite bathroom, and 2 different rooms. But what made the yellow special for me was the people. I became very close with two different roommates, and that has not happened at any other hostel. Everyone, including the staff, is inclusive and friendly. I did not like Rome all that much but if was worth going just to stay here and spend time with my roommates.

It's what you expect from a large hostel. It's harder to meet people necessarily as there isn't really a common room but the bar is good with pretty decent food. Location is great for the train station and you can pretty much walk everywhere else in the city. There were only 2 showers and toilets for at least over 25 people so not the best but they were clean. I wouldn't stay here again but only because Rome has so many different hostels I would like to try somewhere new.

The rooms were clean but the concrete floor made it feel like a jail cell, bathrooms were modern and nice. The AC in our room didn't work which was unpleasant since it was the middle of summer. Upon arrival, the girl at reception was rude and unhelpful however we didn't find this with any of the other staff. Also, the old-school elevator would often not work since people would get drunk and accidentally leave the elevator door open on their floor. Great location & the bar is a lot of fun!

Best hostel I have ever stayed at. They had everything you needed. The rolling bus was a blast. Easy to meet others at the bar. Met a lot of cool people and they don't stop partying until around 4 or 5 am.

Overall, I loved staying at The Yellow. It's the perfect place for young people to stay, especially if it's your first time in Rome. Not only does it come with its very own 24 hour bar/restaurant/dance club right across the street, but the staff knows a lot of great local places that you can go to as well. Additionally, they offer several inexpensive tours each day - some of which are 100% free. I not only made several new friends on my trip, but I was able to site-see most of Rome in 1 day.

Great hostel in a decent spot close. To the metro to go into town. Only thing is at night you usually end up staying at the yellow bar instead of going to the bars in town.

Great location and awesome bar down stairs. Was great to come back and have a drink after touring around all day. Was right off the train station which was also super nice.

I would likely recommend this hostel. If you're staying 1 or 2 nights it's not so bad but the bathroom isn't the cleanest. Good atmosphere and staff were very nice and helpful.

It was close to Termini station like 10 min so the first and last day of the journey was easy. But it was a bit far to other tourist places. Staff was okay and they provided a big towel with the deposit of 10 euro. Breakfast with one bread, one fruit, and one juice costs like 3 euro and it was okay. Around the hostel was a bit dark and looks kinda unsafe. But the street which the yellow was located was noisy and full of people at night. It sure was a party hostel.
