We had the best time! The bar was always busy even during the middle of the week. We will be back for sure :)


I don't what the fuss is all about. The staff here thinks they're too cool for school. I wasn't given any information upon check-in other than my room number and key. I had to ask another staff member where my room is. They do not have bike rentals, even though it's listed under their amenities. The kitchen and lounge are across the street, which is odd to me. I kept walking into their restaurant thinking that it's part of the hostel. They do have a great wi-fi connection though.


Good location, 7 minutes walk from the termini station which connects you to all Rome. Clean for a hostel, but beds a bit tight in the room. Recommended for a short stay where the hostel is only used for your night sleep.

Hi there, thanks a lot for your review! We love our location as well, as it's easy to get everywhere from our hostel. Come back anytime soon, regards Massimo


One of those mega hostels you run into where the staff are really just there to give you your room key and take your money. Clean beds and pretty clean bathrooms. Has a nice bar right downstairs that is packed every night. Location wasn't the best. Could've found a better place to stay but not unhappy I stayed here.


Massive hostel, they own most of the buildings on the street. The bar is good but there was a lack of other common areas


Too loud for my liking but if you use headphones or earplugs should be fine!

Hi there, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. It's true that we are more of a party hostel, glad to see you liked our hostel anyway! We hope to see you soon in the Yellow, maybe in the low season when it's a bit more quiet, you'll enjoy it more. Regards, Amparo


Fantastic location and not badly priced restraunt, comfy beds! Wifi was quite weak in the rooms

Thanks for staying at The Yellow, we are glad to know you enjoyed it. We're sorry we had wifi problems during these days. We hope to see you soon here again Cheers ilaria Yellow Staff


Great first two nights meeting people at the hostel bar and only good experiences with the staff. Place is fairly modern in a good location, and the wifi works great.

The Yellow was one of the best hostels I've been. The atmosphere is amazing, the price is fair and the location as well. The stuff is very prestarive and kind. A special thanks for Filip who helped me a lot with some luggage problems that I had with an Italian air company:)

I loved the hostel. It definitely adds up to the reputation. The vibe was good, the staff were cool and the rooms were nice and clean. I would definitely recommend The Yellow to anyone traveling to Rome.

Hello! You're awesome :) Thanks so much for your review! Come back anytime soon and party with us again! Regards, Amparo


Overated hostel. I was in a six bed room and there was only 2 plugs. Bathroom was nice and clean, but only 2 for a hole floor. There is a nice bar, but the beer is really expensive and there's no discount for who's hosted there!! Is close to Termini but far from the touristic points. There's no common area besides the bar, difficult to socialize. The staff never helped me or tried to socialize the hosts. I wouldn't recomend. I would tell you to stay in another place and go to the bar some night.




Yellow is the must place to stay. Excellent atmosphere and facilities. Next to Roma termini station so you can easily get around. Very helpful stuff and the hostel itself provides with a lot of activities during your stay. Totally recommended

Hey there, thank you for your review! We always try to create a good atmosphere with certain events and activities and it's great to hear you enjoyed them! Glad you liked the staff :) come back soon and party with us again! Regards, Amparo


Awesome locaiton, staff was nice. awesome bar down stairs. straight party vibe. lovely city! Dorm set up was awesome too.


Helpful staff, clean rooms, clean bathrooms. Bar's a bit pricey but not too much so for Italy. Everybody gets a locker drawer under the bed (bring a padlock) and a cool safe for your valuables. I walked to all the major sights that I wanted to see. Definitely worth the money.


Very commercial hostel but nice nonetheless. Good bar underneath and clean rooms with good showers/bathrooms.

You're awesome! Thanks so much! Hopefully seeing you soon :) Amparo, reception team


Very fun hostel with a party vibe -- but the bar downstairs is far enough away from dorm rooms that it is quiet when you want to sleep (best of both worlds). Good priced food available 24/7, lively bar with different events each night (live music, beer pong, etc). EXTREMELY friendly and helpful staff from reception to the bar. Really close to train station and metro, SO easy to navigate city. Showers are decent and beds are comfortable. Would 100% stay here again.
