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.


Awesome location, great atmosphere to meet other travellers and socialise lots, good bar and yummy food there. Not where you stay if you want an early night!


Amazing staff, amazing atmosphere. Never lacking things to do and the party never stops!

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!


Had a really fun time at this hostel. Great atmosphere and location in Rome. If you want a hostel with a party atmosphere then I highly recommend it. The bar is always busy and a great place to meet people.


Amazing times great place in Rome Staff super chill, hard workers you can tell And if your a history buff go on Kevin's walking tours, I hate tours normally but Kevin know how to spice it up and I loved it. Thank you, to all the yellow P.s cleff is still okay ;)


Very secure, great location close to bus and train stations. Cheap food and drink in the bar (best pancakes I've ever had!). However staff is rude and lazy. My bed had dirty sheets on it at 11pm when I arrived, took forever to get one of the three people I talked to to help me. Acted as if I were being a bother and didn't know where to find me a clean comforter, so I had to do without. Definitely a party hostel - run for teenagers, by teenagers. I'm 22 and it seemed a little young even for me.


In a way, the Yellow was both exactly what I expected and didn't expect at all. It was a wild party house - and I mostly knew what I was signing up for; but what caught me off guard was the quality of the food served at the bar. I remember that on my first day in Rome, I got myself a burger at the Yellow bar because I was craving some junk food after eating a whole lot of pasta in other Italian cities. And it was a damn good burger. The brunch was also great, sold at a very reasonable price.


Only stayed one night but seemed like a great atmosphere :) good location and very social!


Nice and friendly place to stay in Rome. The staffs provides knowledgeable information for things to see and do around the city.


Great location right near Termini train station in Rome. Nice rooms with comfy beds. Staff were helpful and friendly. The Yellow bar and restaurant are awesome and a fun way to meet people :) the free night time walking tour was good too!


if you are searching a party hostel.. that's the one. i was not happy at all with my room, the bathroom was dirty. apart from that the hostel is good. good food, bar, location.


Overall, if you're looking for a place to party with a good location in Rome then The Yellow is definitely your place. However, be ready to be woken up at 4am-8am by cleaners tipping glass. Not the best value for money, pretty clean, staff are okay.


This hostel had the most amazing wifi ever... Haha. Great party atmosphere, made tons of friends here with little to no effort and we all had a blast exploring Rome together and then partying at night, the pub crawl is expensive but worth it. It's a pricy place to stay but this is expected for a nice place in Rome. Bathrooms questionable, like the shower was absurdly tiny. But overall would recommend.


Our wifi didn't work in our first room. Staff acted as though it was a huge inconvenience to change our room. Our 2nd room the shower flooded every time someone showered and flooded into the toilet area. We were asked to pay for our stay 3 separate times as though we hadn't paid when we arrived. Overall disorganized staff. Overpriced for what it was.

I had a great stay here - the walking tour had an awesome guide and it was a good way to meet other travellers. Rooms were modern, quiet (even despite they bar outside), spacious & had good internet. Coffee at the bar is pretty decent too! The staff at reception could be a little friendlier, sometimes they made me feel like it was soo much effort or they were too busy to help - smiles go a long way. The ones in concierge were very helpful though :)


The Yellow is frikken awesome! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, clean place and great location! They have a few different tours with little or no charge, their bar is across the street and includes a small club in the basement and they have chalk boards full of info in the lobby. Definitely go on the rolling bar tour, so much fun! I highly recommend The Yellow! Also stop into mama Angela's! It is the best pasta of your life! Great wine as well!


I legit stayed a night but it seemed chill and the bar was tight. I'll go back when I see Rome fur real
