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'.

    Stayed here for two nights as it was fully booked we could not get our full 3 nights. Loved it, super fun, lots of friendly people. Felt safe as two 22 and 23 year old females travelling. Met great people in the common room and got dinner, drinks then did the salsa lesson and karaoke. They had lots of shower stalls, shampoo provided. Rooms were spacious, staff was great. Just be tearfully going up the top bunk as you can only hold one side and don't hit your head on the safe. Good place to lock up your bags below the bed. Bring your own lock. Would highly recommend if you like to go out or to their bar. Can be loud as the bar is downstairs.

    I absolutely loved my stay at Yellow Square. for the price this is a steal. I was very satisfied with all the facilities and the especially very happy with our room. At other hostels, the space is too small and there's no room to walk around. Here we had SO MUCH SPACE in our room even with 8 people. I enjoyed getting my hair washed at the salon. There was an extra full size mirror and a study table. I was surprised to find body wash, shampoo and hand wash. I will definitely board here again.

    Very social hostel with the discounted bar right outside. Decent size rooms, although smaller lockers than other places we’ve stayed. Clean and safe, very friendly staff - would recommend

    Great Hostel for solo travellers looking to meet people. Great facilities and has a cool bar downstairs that turns into a nightclub just for people staying in the hostel! 30 minutes walk from most things in Rome and 10 minutes from the metro.

    Was a very cool place! Very secure entrance, friendly staff, good atmosphere. Underbed lockers were extremely noisy so was worried to wake up my flatmates. Not sure it was worth the extra money, in the sense it did occasional free activities but we would be out most days, missing them. Other cheaper hostels had common rooms similar. Didn't feel like it stood out as much as I thought it was - just another hostel with bar and some free activities. You had to pay for the other additions to hostel.

    Okay hostel. It's a bit old and the walls are thin, quite noisy at night. The bar across the street is great though.

    Yellow square is a big hostel and has a good kitchen and common area with a bar just across the road. Having a bar right next to the hostel was really nice and a good night out, however it’s quite expensive. Rooms were clean but small, especially for the price, and location is about 20 minutes walk from the city centre. Altogether a nice hostel but it’s not cheap and lacks the communal, friendly atmosphere that other hostels have

    Be careful. Under the mattresses there are holes that you can fit a hand through to reach into the bags locked underneath. I was in a private room and had money stolen this way.

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 :)
