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.

Place was very clean and staff was very nice. Anything we needed, they helped us out and they were very organized with their events. Great event : the party bus! A must. Felt very safe during our stay.

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.

Perfect Stay in this Hostel. The Yellow Bar is really a difference maker, even it's probably not very characteristic, food-wise expecially, but then again, everything has very honest prices and tastes great, especially the beer! I met so many nice people there, the bar is really the place you wanna go if you travel alone, you might end up sitting next someone from anywhere in the world, and everybody is totally in the right mood for friendship!

Awesome place!! Travelling alone and met so many friends. Wifi gets weak in the night due to so many people down at the bar but that's okay. Had so much fun! Love Jamie the cute bartender

EVERYONE loves the Yellow, I wasn't really impressed though. But maybe I just tried to do too much in too few days in Rome. The bar is fun, pretty standard mess of drunkenness. Some drinks are fairly cheap, beer is not one of them. It's impossible to sleep at any point in the night if you are in the building above the bar unless passed out drunk. The staff at the bar and restaurant were not friendly. Easy to meet people if you are outgoing because nobody ever seems to leave the bar area.

It was a great hostel! Met a lot of people and staff was very up beat and were always smiling. Not really the best hostel to stay at if you don't want to party every night you're there, there's not much to do if you don't want to spend money on drinks or the party bus but hey that's the night life so bring ear plugs and a sleeping mask. Also the food downstairs is SO good so stuff your face there. Really close to the train station and underground so that was a plus.

This is a large party hostel that feels a little impersonal at times. The rooms are spacious and air-conditioned, but the facilities in the girls dorms did not work during my stay (hair dries, hot water), and there were two showers/bathrooms to three rooms of girls staying. The hostel is close to the central station and a little walk to the main sites, so otherwise it was an okay stay.
