It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

The Yellow was voted the #1 hostel in Rome at the 2011 Hoscars and it's not hard to see why. The hostel is set near Termini station and has a popular bar downstairs which one Hostelworld traveller described as the 'cheapest in town'. Our visitors say the staff know the best spots to party and the must-go sites and 'will make you feel at home and help in every way possible and join in the festivities at night'. The hostel has a youthful party atmosphere which our guests say is 'very comfortable, fun and safe'.

Property Description

Yellow Hostel has redefined the meaning of what a hostel is, YellowSquare is no longer a place where you just lay your head to rest in a bunk bed. It's now where you're entertained by local live bands, go on shopping tours with locals, and start your day off with some rooftop yoga, learn to cook gourmet meals, change your look in the ContestaRockHair salon and much more.

You're going to love it here if you like to get your party on; you love socializing from dusk til dawn; you're looking for an international entourage; you think loud is the new black; you just want to kick back and enjoy yourself!

    10/10. Location, atmosphere, staff, and facilities all really great. Free dinner offered at night - super basic, but free. Great place to go as a solo traveller. Right next to the metro, train station, and a grocery store. Beds and rooms were really comfy too! Highly recommend.

    I stayed in the 4 bedroom mixed room. It was nice, had our own bathroom, plugs, and comfy beds. There are lockers for your luggage under the beds but when someone comes in at 2am and opens them it jostels the bed and is very loud. I would not recommend this place for someone who likes their sleep. Majority of the people stay out late and come in drunk. There is not much space in between the top and bottom bunk and as a 5’4” person I cannot sit up on my bed.

    Staying at The Yellow was one of the best decisions I made in Rome. The concierge was incredibly helpful and the facilities were clean! I would definitely stay at The Yellow if I'm ever in Rome again and I have already recommended it to all of my friends!

    The hostel is amazing, I have been in many hostels and this one is definitely one of the best places I have stayed. Besides the room with everything in order, what makes it special is the bar and the activities. It makes it very easy to meet other people staying in the hostel. I only did not give a 10 because the wifi was very bad in my room and it was hard to find a place with a good signal for wifi.

    This hostel was brilliant. It's the first youth hostel I booked on my own, and it couldn't have gone better. There was free pasta at 7 pm every day and awesome activities going on all the time in the yellow bar. I met a lot of fun people who I spent my entire stay with. I loved the entire international artsy vibe , the breakfast was AMAZING ( tiramisu PANCAKES GUYS) and there's a -20% discount on drinks at the bar. Very convenient location and friendly staff. Would stay again !

    The yellow is a great hostel. You make a lot of friends. Is close to public transport and all the partying is hard to hear from the rooms. My only problem was the wifi didn’t reach the kitchen and in the bar was extremely slow. I went onto data quite a few times. However it is a fun party hostel that offers a lot of experiences. Would recommend

    The hostel was very nice, the staff were amazing and accommodating and I LOVED the fresh and free pasta every night! With your stay, you also get a lot of discounts which is very helpful. The only thing that wasnt great was the Wi-Fi, which did not reach my room and/or didn't connect when my phone did see it (and this was the experience of others in my dorm too!)

    The receptionist wasted 40 minutes for getting me the right room key and made me climb stairs multiple times.

The Yellow says

I think what makes us different from the rest is that the heart and soul of The Yellow is the Yellow Bar. The atmosphere and the prices are so legendary that they attract guest from surrounding hostels and hotels.
You'll find that the majority of our guests range in age from 18 to 26, and they all come to enjoy the great atmosphere we create. With different DJs coming in to spin party music, a â'¬3 buffet, our nine-hour-long happy hour and beer pong tournaments, I think a lot of people find it hard to leave.
We've also got a pretty quiet area in our restaurant if challenging someone to beer pong isn't your cup of tea. And while you're sipping on your cocktail or choosing something to eat off of our menu, you can take advantage of our free iPad rentals and Wi-Fi.
Once you're ready to experience Roman nightlife, the staff at The Yellow are the most knowledgeable when it comes to knowing what's going on in the city every night. So just ask us :)
