Great hostel. Very youthful atmosphere and nice restaurant/bar downstairs.


Great hotel near termini station, great location, the place it's really nice, it has complementary tea and coffee, I really liked it!


Couldn't be more impressed! Staff, location, atmosphere. This one is a winner all round. Do yourself a favour and stay at the yellos


Good place to stay. Nice bar and clean bathrooms.


Great location and bar!


Very nice Hostel, very comfortable also well located to bars and close enough to the landmarks of Rome. Also the attached bar/cafe does excellent food at good prices especially for breakfast.


Had a blast everynight at the yellow! Activities didn't always happen but no complaints as you just make your own fun!


Nice staff. Great location. Just 5 minutes' walk from the Termini.

Ohhh The Yellow.... This place is amazing! The staff were super dooper friendly, Facilities and rooms were clean and comfortable. Bar was awesome, always something on and great way to meet people. Was supposed to stay 2 night, ended up staying the week. Close to station and to a metro stop and staff tell you everything you need to see in Rome. Dont look past this place, it is well worth the money and I will be coming back. Thank you for the Amazeballs times guys.


Such a great hostel, really sociable with a cute lounge and kitchen area and a bar next door. We met so many great people and the bar has a really fun atmosphere, especially during happy hour! Rooms were decent and bathrooms always clean, easy walking distance of most sights and right near the bus and metro too. Made our visit to Rome better than we could have imagined! Would definitely recommend!

Around 5mins walk to Termini. One of the few well rated hostels WITHOUT a lockout period. Yay! Fun and great place to meet ppl of all nationalities in the Lounge area and bar downstairs. Problem is, that's where everyone stays, no one ventures into the city. There rn't any free walking tours either (all min 20€). Rooms were clean, kitchen was only a microwave (the kettle disappeared), showers and toilets r unisex, which no one mentioned... But wifi was awesome throughout the whole building


I loved my stay at The Yellow! I felt at home right away. It had everything - nice rooms, hot water in the showers, the bar and club downstairs, and the wonderful living room/kitchen. The Yellow was the perfect place to get to know people and spend time in Rome, I never wanted to leave!!


The hostel was average and the lounge is isolated from the rooms. Also, if you want to get your food after a certain time you need to go downstairs and be supervised...kind of weird. My pillow also had weird stains on it.


It is like an entire Yellow Empire there- several bars/ hostel locations/ restaurants and CROWDS of nice young people! If you come alone for a weekend in Rome it might be enough just to stay at Yellow and you will never be bored, because here, in one place, you can find whatever you need for a great vacation!


Excellent bar. Very professional place. Useful staff. The average point was wifi not working very well in my floor and not breakfast.


The Yellow is an excellent place to stay or even just visit as an attraction in Rome! The parties at night were excellent, we went there even before we stayed there. Great atmosphere and you'll meet some excellent people. Food and drinks are well priced, the rooms are big and have everything you need.

This hostel has a pub, so it's very easy to make friends and spent a good time in rome having a little of party. 4 persons room is not to spacious, and bathroom is small, but party compensate it


The hostel has a good location near Termini (the train station). You'll be able to reach almost everything in Rome from this point. The hostel isn't very nice looking but it's perfect if you're just looking for a place to sleep. My only negative feedback is about the hostel bar' security guard. He pushed me (physically) outside of the establishment cause I was waiting for a friend in the bar's hallway with a drink in my hands. He wouldn't let me back inside (even after politely asking him).


The hostel was clean and safe, a bit far from the major attractions but there were real good night and day bus lines. Of course it's obvious that this is a partying hostel, we had a lot of fun, we still were able though to get some sleep, the security guys were very clear about what was allowed or not. My only "complain" was that the staff wasn't really informed about the sights. But hey, u can always check online :-)


Great location, right next to where the airport buses drop you off. Adequate rooms, nothing special but certainly nothing to complain about. The best thing about the hostel is the bar with the little outside seating area. We were there for the England vs Italy rugby game and there was a great atmosphere, nothing intimidating - just fun. Its probably also one of the cheapest bars in Rome
