the seating outside the street at the bar makes the hostel. Good friendly vibes and so easy to get chatting and mingle with the people. Great street and atmosphere. The bar was good, except the male staff behind the bar are very arrogant and generally rude. especial the italians. the female staff are all friendly however. The rooms are nice and clean, bathrooms basic. there is a party bus tour, which is pure cringe. pretty expensive rates for rooms in general. but half decent social hostel
The yellow is a party hostel but at a cost. The room was dirty and the bathroom was worse, only hot water, which is cool until it gets so hot it burns your skin. The staff tries to help but they are overwhelm with all the ins and outs. The bar which is down stairs is cool but also dirty and the bouncers are very bossy for no reason .
This was an incredible hostel, great environment to meet people if you're traveling alone. The hostel offers so many things like bike tours, day/night walking tours, party bus etc. Great nightlife at the hostel too, I had a blast every single night!
Easy to get to from Roma termini. Clean and secure. Staff weren't that helpful. The European woman staff member with long mousey blond her was rude - made you feel like an inconvenience. The staff were the let down of my stay at The Yellow.
The facilities attached to the hostel were great, the bar was cheap and the food in their sister Italian restaurant opposite was good, the bathroom was filthy. This was the most expensive hostel I have stayed in and have slept in many a cleaner, cheaper, friendlier hostel.
Great party hostel which is what I was looking for in Rome. So nice having the bar just downstairs. Walking tour was also great and the staff helped with anything you needed
Located very close to the train station and is within walking distance to the Coluseum (25 min) and St. Peters (35 min). Rooms were spacious, with the opportunity to lock away your suitcase and a safety deposit box for your valuables. You can get a cheap breakfast across the street. It is a party hostel, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place for you.
I only had the chance to visit The Yellow on a stop over, however the location and atmosphere is perfect! It seemed a lively place and perfect to meet fellow travellers. I arrived late at night to be met by a young european guy on the desk who really did not seem interested in serving me at all. It was a chore for him to inform me of necessary information before chucking my passport back onto the desk top. I know jobs can be mundane but really?
Ok so it's a little pricy (including the bar unfortunately) but you are guaranteed to have a great time here. Plenty of people extended their stays after seeing the city just to hang out at the hostel. Good location near termini but a bit far from the sights (Rome is huge so not much you could do) about that, walking distance to the station is awesome. Highly recommend this hostel.
the stay here was great, I met so many people and made many friends. the location was good right next to the main station and the bar downstairs made it really easy to meet people. security was great had somewhere go lock my belongings and a safety Deposit box for valuables. the staff were helpful. the shower was the only disappointment as it was in its own room and so it became really hot after showering as there was no ventilation and you needed another shower from the sweat. would stay again!
No complaints at all. This place is awesome. Staff is so friendly and fun. If you are looking to party and meet lots of people, this is the place!
It was perfect hostel. I really liked to stay in there. If you are trying to find a hostel clean, party atmoshphere, this hostel is just for you. Enjoy it.
Really nce and accommodating staff keep up the good work

I was quite happy with my stay at the Yellow. They've provided many activities to do with other customers and provided information about the area and nearby stores and places to go to. The one downfall, but not a huge one, was the struggle to use outlets from a top bed.
Great place . Clean , good atmosphere , everyone we spoke with who worked there was really nice and helpful. Also, good mix of people from all over the world were staying there. If your in Rome , you should probably stay here.
Great place, simply a must do if staying in Rome.
This is a fantastic hostel! It is a party hostel though so I think if you are not into that it might not be a good fit for everybody. But still, I'm not a huge party person but it was nice to get into it for a few days in Rome! Its easy to meet new people and the staff is so great its like hanging out with old friends the moment you arrive. I recommend the free night walking tour. You can bring a beer with you and learn about history in a really fun and engaging way. Plus Rome is lovely by night
Great party hostel. The atmosphere is fantastic! The bar is very fun, the location is quite nice and located close to Termini. The showers were a little grubby and there is no kitchen which isn't brilliant. The staff were great though and I enjoyed my stay.
Amazing atmosphere, brilliant staff. I will be staying with you guys again thank you for such a great time. The tours are brilliant I will be going on them again.

When we arrived there was a problem with our booking being double booked but the hostel had made arrangements for us to stay at the hotel opposite. We were a little disappointed but the hostel still let us use their facilities and activities. Staff were very helpful and had tips for getting into all the attractions and their Rollin Bar at night was amazing! Definitely one of my favourite hostels.
