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'.

    I am solo traveler, and the staff was welcoming and helpful. I haven’t been to many hostels before, but the rooms were pretty nice in my opinion. The hostel has a lot of events and tours and ways to get to know other travelers. Overall, it was a great experience.

    This is so far the BEST place to stay in Rome. I absolutely love the organization, the cleanliness, and the overall environment; indeed I extended my stay at least 3 times because you just feel at home.

    Really nice hostel, very clean and great location for the station and getting into the centre of Rome. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and it was easy to meet fellow travellers in the common areas. Only down side was the beds in the dorms were quite loud when you moved - but that's something to be expected in a hostel. Would definitely stay again if I come back to Rome.

    Have been to Rome many times - This is a great location! Comfortable, modern bunks that don’t squeak. Power outlet and little light included. A small suggestion - please install shelves/racks in the shower cubicles. A lot of EU travellers take their clear plastic bag of toiletries directly from their hand luggage to the showers and it would be great to have somewhere to put them while showering instead of on the floor in a puddle of the tepid remains of the previous person’s shower water.

    The hostel has a no alcohol in the room policy but don't implement it. A young couple in my dormitory were having wine and doing all sorts of things at 2 am which really made me feel uncomfortable and ruined my sleep on my last night there. Ignoring this incident, the hostel is nice with good facilities. 5 min walk from the station in a safe location.

    Very Good

    22 Nov 2021
    El lugar está muy bien, creo fue el hostal con mayor comodidad en el que he estado. La habitación aunque de ambientación sencilla o simple, tenía baño propio y terraza (no la mejor vista claro). Pero en general una muy muy buena opción, recomendado! La ubicación no es su fuerte, pero it’s work. Algo a mejorar sería la actitud del personal, no se sintió tan amable o cordial después de todo, aunque resuelven los inconvenientes. Es el único punto a mejorar desde mi punto de vista.

    Was super excited by the hostel, but ended up pretty disappointed. This hostel has a very strange, industrial, no-fun vibe. The facilities are all clean and nice and such, but it just seems like a rip-off, kind of nickle and diming you all the time. Can't bring your own drinks, wants to be a party hostel with wristband and such but isn't a fun place to party like a party hostel usually is. Ended up leaving and finding a nicer stay down the street. No character to it.

YellowSquare Rome 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 :)
