Great place to stay if you're looking to meet people and have a few decent nights at the bar downstairs. Excellent location walking distance from the train station and amongst excellent restaurants. Staff also added a great vibe. Wouldn't consider anywhere else when returning.

The ONLY thing is the kitchen is just a microwave and a toaster. BUT! The restaurant/bar downstairs is delicious and fairly priced. The Yellow has been my favorite hostel. As a solo traveller, I met a ton of AWESOME people. The staff was awesome (shoutout to Kelly and Kevin)! Even people from other hostels were hanging out at the Yellow. STAY HERE! You won't regret it!

This hostel is awesome! For the price, I don't think you will find a better hostel in Rome that has so much to offer. From the bar downstairs (with the cheapest prices around) to the tours they offer, it's hard to beat. (I didn't even mention the party bus) I had read previous reviews and was kinda worried if I was actually going to sleep at all while here. Though it is a party kinda hostel, its a party where it counts and a place to rest where it matters.

Great atmosphere, great staff! I was in the 4bed female ensuite and it was a little small I have to say. But overall, if you're looking for a short stay and party (they do this partybus that is really fun), then it's the place to be. Also, very close to the train station and you can walk to the coliseum in 30mns!

First and best hostel I stayed at on my trip through Italy. Staff were hilarious and welcoming. Atmosphere was great especially if you are traveling alone. The bar downstairs had cheap drinks and themes nights. I met people from Rome that came to this bar as it's known for being so fun. Stayed in a four bed form, had own plugs and cage under bed for belongings (bring your own lock). Room was quiet even though the bar was nearby. For sure will stay here again!

Really good hostel! I spend 3 nigths there in a 6 bed dorm. It was only girls in my room and in the entire floor, which make me feel safer. There are hairdryers on the haal.

Would recommend this hostel to anyone, great bar across the road, but rooms still quiet! Great location right by Termini station and you can walk to all the main sights of Rome easily. Great stay :)

The door between the room and the bathroom creak which interferes with sleep, if someone needs to use the bathroom at night. Also visible is the light of the bathroom. Everything outside of these details is in order. Thank you for your kindness.

The Yellow was amazing! Easy to find from the directions provided. Super great food on the block and within a short walk. Great location to hop on a train and on ya 30min walk to the Forum area. The bar/restaurant downstairs provided a great meeting place for excursions in the morning and a fun atmosphere for after a long day. The info boards at reception were great as well.

Excellent Hostel! Great Atmosphere with the Bar and Club downstairs. I am travelling along was a great way to meet and party with people. The staff were very helpful with showing you how to get around the city. Great location with short walk to main train station, lots of restaurants is close proximity aswell as the main sites in waking distance. Stay here you will enjoy it!

Having a bar open long hours makes it great to meet lots of people. The location although not central to the main attractions is great for the train station and it's very easy to either walk or catch public transport into the main area. Lots of restaurants

Good hostel bar and easy walk from the train station. Wifi does not work in the rooms but not a deal breaker because the people you meet at the bar reduces the necessity of the internet.
