I stayed in the all-girl dorms which were clean and very nice. There were hairdryers provided and loads of mirror space for everyone to get ready in, however only 2 bathrooms (with showers) for the entire floor to share (like 24 people) so there was always a queue. The main site has a great bar with delicious food and a... More

Clean, fun and lots of young people. By far the best hostel to stay in rome if you're looking for a good price, fun times and a very clean place. Don't worry about the noise, inside the hostel everything is pretty quiet and calm. The bar is awesome, 1 euro shots! and you get to meet really amazing people. Don't... More

For the price I paid, I was very satisfied with this hostel. It was clean, with enough safety measures: safe deposit boxes in the room, padlock enabled luggage area, multiple points of access card entry... etc. The staff spoke perfect English and that itself is a big plus. It's only a 5min walk from Termini and very convenient to walk... More

The staff and the food are nice. The location is good, just about 5 minutes walk from the Termini. However, the room is small. I stayed in a 4-bed room with 2 bunk beds. I don't recommend you to choose to sleep on the lower one as you will never be able to sit on the bed. The space between... More

I stayed at the Yellow for 3 nights in a 6 bed shared dorm with "private" bathroom. I'll start with the positives because I don't want to make it sound like I had a bad time, because it was really fun! I had an awesome time here!! The place is really alive, lots of things happening, lots of great people,... More

The Yellow's certainly one of the more popular hostels in Rome - a simple Google search would say so, and it certainly deserves its reputation. A decidedly party hostel, most of the people who stay there are, well, young and friendly backpackers, which makes Yellow a good option for the people who travel alone and look forward to meeting new...

Was traveling alone, really easy place to meet people. Cool bar with cheap food and drink. Offered good tours at an affordable price. Sheets were clean, everything up to snuff. It is a bit of a rowdy hostel at times, if you're looking for quiet, solid night sleeps it might not be the best place for you.

Again I'm not big on hostels but I wanted to check this one out because it had a big party reputation and I felt like a party at the time. What's good: + Nice bar/pub downstairs which serves food too. Food is pretty good. Staff are decent. Ambiance is a little bit retro but nice enough. Outdoor seating available. +... More

This hostel was in a great location in room, namely because it seemed to be the spot where all the student-aged travelers seemed to be staying, or came just to hang out at the bar! It was super clean and safe, with great staff helping at the front desk, and an awesome mix of people who passed through every night.... More

The Bar and Arcade is a great place to meet new fellow travellers. I could not fault the staff to either at the bar or the reception. The only thing I would of liked though if they had put me in the main building itself rather than the other building that they have just a few yards down the street.... More
