Good hostel with a fun atmosphere. The bar is good fun and good value, and it does a good cheap breakfast (it's worth paying for a proper a la carte breakfast instead of the typical free hostel continental). Safes!! in the room AND locker under bed for bag which was great. 10 minutes from train station, and beside a metro. Showers/toilets could be better but you can't have it all! Recommend!

Really helpful and friendly staff! 5 min walk from Roma termini station. Individual safety boxes in rooms. Separate shower from toilet.. Very handy as an ensuite. Good for those who want to party but still good if you don't. Breakfast is yum... Can ores off the menu and prices very good. No laundry facilities in hostel but reasonable laundromat around the corner. Amazing Italian restaurant next to reception. Will definitely stay here again... Highly recommend!!!

Absolutely loved my stay at the yellow. It's perfect to make friends when you're traveling solo! Just go down to the bar and order a beer, before you know it you your with a group of new friends dancing the night away :) Staff is very friendly and helpful!

Staff is really helpful and all know English. The bar/ dance club has cheap drinks and nightly events. Great place to meet the young rowdy set. A bit of a walk to the historic sites, but manageable. Close to termini

I stayed at this hostel and came back a couple weeks later because I had such a great time. It's close to the train station which was great. And it's impossible not to make friends. I spent my birthday here and the staff as well as the guests made my birthday amazing. Very good vibe and good food too. Wifi isn't bad either. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

Had a wonderful time. Great location, can easily walk to most of the sites, or even bike. Excellent party vibe that draws travellers from other hostels in the area. I was told on more than one occasion "I wish I was staying at this hostel, mine is boring" also do yourself a favour and go on the party bus.

Wifi did not work inside our room for the length of our stay.

The rooms are weird, with dark walls and windows that get almost no light in during the day. Kinda makes it feel like a prison. Staff was helpful, there were safes and lockers in the room, the internet worked everywhere in the building, the lounge was fairly relaxing, and there wasn't much noise near the rooms. It's also a five minutes walk from Termini which is helpful if you're sightseeing all over the town. The bar downstairs is not great, go across the street for food.

If you don't book here then you made a mistake. Great hostel with bar restaurant right down stairs. Great social hostel so if you are looking to meet people than book here. Rooms are nice basic hostel rooms no complaints. Definitely a fun upbeat hostel would recommend you book here.

This is not a hostel for people who travel alone or want to make new friends in a normal common room. 1st,because there is no common room; and 2nd,the people always stay in the bar,always in big groups,so its difficult to start a conversation with someone(and music is always loudly);breakfast is very expensive.But is too easy to reach from the station Roma Termini,the locker is a little bit small but very safe, the main points of the city are well explained in the dashboard;good and clean beds.

Definitely not the cheapest hostel but definitely the best hostel to stay at in Rome. I did the pub crawl in Rome which was terrible when compared the party at the bar at the Yellow. The staff here is really cool and keep the party going. The bar has such a good party many people not staying at the hostel will stay at the bar. I would however reccomend staying at the hostel as you will so many more people that will be at the bar. I would highly reccomend this hostel it was lots of fun.

I booked into this hostel on a whim. It may have been the best decision of my whole trip. This hostel was fun, friendly and kinda crazy! There was a party every night downstairs but the bedrooms were quiet at night. The staff couldnt be more helpful if they tried and the other travellers were just incredible it made my holiday extra special. Thank you Yellow!

A little hike to major sites but nothing a backpacker can't handle. Nothing much happening in term of nightlife in the near area but that doesn't matter because all the nightlife you need is at the hostel. Great to meet travelers and enjoy your time in Rome.
