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 can enhance your work in our coworking spaces, be entertained by local live bands, go on shopping tours with locals, learn to cook gourmet meals, change your look in the ContestaRockHair salon and much more.

Our Concierge Bar is the perfect spot for you to chill, play, meet other guests and drink in a great environment. Ask for our amazing plates at the YellowBar and enjoy different activities we do throughout the week. Also, our coworking hall will allow you to book a safe and quiet space to work on a dedicated desktop, print and get your career or business going while discovering Rome.
Even though governmental restrictions might constantly change, at YellowSquare you are able to enjoy a safe hostel experience with all the safety measurements suggested during the COVID19 period by the government.

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

Great Staff and the hotel is located at the downtown near to all facilities & restaurants… The roommates were very respectful and the room was clean. I would like to think the girl in the reception with a curly hair she was very friendly & helpful.

Best hostel I’ve ever been to! They have a large set-up with tons of third-spaces (bar, lounging rooms, gardens, kitchen, restaurant) and the staff are so friendly and excited to help you. Pretty clean considering the large number of people coming in and out. Surprisingly quiet in rooms at night even with bar across the street.

Fantastic and fun place to stay. Its a little pricy but they have lots of fun activities and amenities that make it worth it in my opinion. If I find myself in Rome again I will be staying here again.

YellowSquare Rome says

Creo que lo que nos hace diferentes del resto es que el corazón y el alma de The Yellow es el Yellow Bar. El ambiente y los precios son tan legendarios que incluso atraen a los huéspedes de los hostales y hoteles de alrededor. La mayoría de nuestros clientes tienen una media de edad entre 18 y 26 años y todos vienen a disfrutar del gran ambiente que creamos. Con diferentes DJs que vienen de gira, un buffet por sólo 3 euros, nuestra 'happy hour' de nueve horas y nuestros torneos de 'beer-pong', creo que a mucha gente le resulta difícil salir del albergue! También tenemos una zona bastante tranquila en nuestro restaurante por si alguien prefiere una taza de té al excitante beer-pong. Y mientras que te bebes un cóctel o eliges algo para comer de nuestro menú, también puedes aprovechar para alquilar un iPad gratis y conectarte a la wifi. Una vez que estés listo para experimentar la noche de Roma, el personal de The Yellow son los que más saben sobre qué hay en la ciudad de noche. Así que no dudes en preguntarnos :)
