The hostel is good, in general. The location is perfectly convenient for people who travel from Roma Termini. The bar offers foods and drink with reasonable prices, the tastes are pretty good. The bathroom is nice and well-equiped However, the room is rather small. I feel it is lack of air (it seems that I cannot breath inside the room). Overall, I like this hostel.

The Yellow was close to the train station which helped a lot. No one showed us to our room though and the staff didn't seem to care - it was hit or miss. The kitchenette was cute but small and I wish they had a stove. There really was no atmosphere here since the lounge was tiny and often occupied by staff and most rooms are divided on each floor. The bar was a good way to meet people and they had good events too but it was kind of intimidating. averagely clean

Had a pretty fun time at The Yellow. The staff seemed nice and helpful, the bar had pretty cheap drinks and specials, the location isn't anything exciting but has a few restaurants nearby and a close metro stop. Only stayed here one night and it was a good experience for a short time.

Really fun hostel. Easy to meet people. Rooms were nothing special and a little run down, but the bathrooms were fine and the atmosphere of the hostel makes up for the not very nice rooms. I was traveling by myself and had no problem meeting people and I never felt unsafe! It's a little far from the main Rome attractions but right by Termini, so it's a give and take.

it doesn't serve breakfast which is not so good. but generally it is really close to metro station about 2 min. and just 5 min walk from central train station. spacious rooms and clean bedsheets. one of the best hostels in italy. Just when you leave your luggage after check-out inside a room, everyone can access it without any security or locker inside. so it should be more safe than it is now.

The staff was helpful. The atmosphere was fun if you like to party and drink. I did not like how loud it was when i was trying to sleep.

The staff is very helpful, the pub at the ground floor is nice. I'm not sure if the breakfast worth the price. The room is big, comfortable and clean. The only thing that wasn't so good is the location, but at least is close to the main station so it's easy to arrive departure at/from the hostel, but you definitely need to get a metro to go to any other place. At least is close to 2 different metro stations, what helps a lot.

Clean communal bathrooms/showers. Lockers for bags for added security. 24/7 reception who is very helpful with questions. Hostel plans nightly events if you are looking for some late night fun.

The place is beautiful but the location is regular. You re near of the termini (it is very nice when you wanna take a bus o train) but at night in the neighborhood's streets i felt unsafe.

Very fun hostel with great bar, perfect for meeting fellow travellers! Rooms were good and very spacious, with huge lockable draws under the beds which can easily fit a large backpack in. Good location very close to main station and a metro stop! Would definately stay here again when in Rome

I love this place! I stay there for 3 weeks and I spend a wonderful time. The staff is amazing!!! Great guys and girls, so lovely, patience, nice, fun, they did everything to help me and I have no complains about it. The bar is great, the rooms clean and big, nice and clean sheets. The breakfast in the bar is very good for 3-4€ so really, this is the place to be. Thank you so much for everything! They help Me so much that they even know my name by heart haha!

Very clean and tidy. Good bar and place for breakfast. Great for being close to Termini station but a fair distance from the old town and bars of Trastevere. Like the lockers and safe's in the rooms.

The hostel was a little stiff for my liking. From indifferent seeming staff to their policies (no alcohol). It didn't have that relaxed vibe that most hostels have. Surface value though, it was great! About a 5 minute walk from the train station. Lockers (bring your own lock!). The shower was a bit tricky (either scalding or freezing), but otherwise all the facilities were clean and comfortable.
