Great value for money. Nothing to complain about

Right next to the Termini train station and easy to find. The bar was a lot of fun to hang out at and the room was cozy and clean. It was a little noisy at night but we just put in earplugs and went right to sleep. At reception, they offer walking tours of the city which I wish we had had time to do. We only stayed 3 nights and it didn't feel long enough! Very fun, hip vibe all around. I definitely recommend this place!

I'm very satisfied with my stay in The Yellow. Great location, great value! The shower was not really hot in the first few days, but it got repaired later on, and it works perfectly!

Internet coverage was a bit poor in the dorms but everything else was excellent!

Absolutely awesome stay at the Yellow, perfect place to end my 5 months of continuous travel around europe, They really made my last days in Rome something special. Really awesome how they have the share your talent, stay for free policy as well, was happy to be able to make a film with them, and dance for the other people there, had a ton of fun with that. Great time, great fun, stay at the yellow!

An ok hostel. Their bar is really nice. A good place to hang out. Dorm rooms r ok, I've seen better. It's not overpriced. I recommend, just for the bar :).

Awesome Hostel! Bar makes meeting people so easy. The "pub crawl" is also great to meet people and just have some fun. Highly Recommend.

The hostel is overall very good. It offers a good value for money, with great facilities and staff; the cleanliness could be a bit better though. You should also offer a breakfast option for your guests. The pub is OK but sometimes you want something a bit cheaper than a conventional cafe (and that's why you have chosen to stay in a hostel :)).

Upon arrival everything looks just too fantastic. Great crew, great atmosphere and everything looks more than satisfying. Once you checked-in you will be guided to your room. A dirty room that is, with thin walls where you can enjoy the bar music and happy drinking ppl all night. There are 2 extra doors in that room one contains a tiny space with the shower without hooks or anything... VERY inconvenient. The other door contains a even smaller space with the toilet and sink. Qualitysafes in room.

I really enjoyed my stay here. I am Picky in terms of where i stay, i stayed in the female dorms, the place was cleaned everyday, was secure with elevator and away from any noise. It also had mirror and hairdryer outside where all the girls could get ready. The only prob was two toilets wasnt enough for so many of us. But no complaints i met amazing new friends and I will def come back here next time i visit rome.

Great hostel with a really fun bar and a great drinking bus tour. Rooms were good and clean and it was close to everywhere important. Main criticism would be that the kitchen is really just a kettle and a couple of microwaves. Would definitely stay here again!

AMAZING hostel. upon arriving, we were upgraded to a private 3-person room. It felt like a 5-star hotel to me. I loved it. If you want to be near Termini, this is the perfect location. Its about a 15 minute walk from the heart of the city, but if you have an early or late flight, being near the train station is a plus. The employees are all SO friendly and helpful. I loved my stay here!

I had a great stay at the yellow and was very impressed by the whole experience. Met some fun travelers and had a great time. Is very close to termini station and convenient for most things either walking or metro. The only disappointment was the kitchen was really just two microwaves. Apart from that the bar was really cool as well.

The hostel is at very nice location so very convenient to visit historical cites of Rome. The room, bed and bathroom was clean. Perfect place to stay in Rome.

Bar is cool and conducive to meeting travelers and locals. Big cages under beds that will fit a backpacking bag and more. Bring your own lock or buy one from the hostel (€2-3?). Small safes in rooms for valuables. Hairdryers provided, and a reasonably large area with mirrors and chairs, in the female dorms at least. Very small rooms, if everyone doesn't put their bags in the cages there's not enough room to walk.

Best value for money in Rome. Great location, helpful staff. Everything good.

It's an infamous party hostel, so somewhat unsurprisingly the toilet facilities are ... meagre. There's 3 toilets and 4 showers for a whole floor, which means some waiting in the morning, and the showers are pretty small. It's all decently clean, however. The staff are great, and the bar is excellent. The location can't be beat, as it's a very short walk to the nearest metro station, and a somewhat longer walk to Termini, the main bus/train station and busiest metro stop.

Best showers ever!

Good party hostel, the bar is really good with afordable prices and a good atmosphere. Not a good place for meeting people though, there's no hostel life besides the bar at night so as a solo traveller your only chance will be to meet people in your room. My room had 2 sockets for 8 people, so good luck charging your phone at night. The halls outside the dorms have big doors so it's considerably noisy, earplugs are a must. Showers had no hooks which was very unconfortable.
