My friend and I stayed in July and had the complete opposite experience as these snobby Ottawa Canucks. We had come from Ibiza where our hostel had no AC, very few electrical outlets, and 1 bathroom for 4 rooms on the floor. For a lesser price at Yellow, my friend and I had our own clean room with private bathroom,... More

This place was an absolute disaster. It was marketed towards party goers, but was so much worse. The hostel took every opportunity to price gouge. Beer pong? 15€. Pub crawls? No, they're "illegal" (but openly offered elsewhere). Walking tour? 20€, Get a free one elsewhere. Sure, once you go to the basement after dark it becomes a club with free... More

This hostel is brutal. 5 of us booked 2 months in advanced for a 6 bed room. Upon check in, they did not honour our booking and split our group up for the duration of our stay without an explanation, apology, or reimbursement. They then have the audacity to charge us an arm and a leg for tours and night... More

It is less than five minutes from Roma termini (main) station & the atmosphere is great! All staff are nice, bar is open till 3am, & rooms are good. The light, outlet/charger, & storage area is right next to the bed. It is a few metro stops away from most sights, but well worth the travel. Yellow shots for €1... More

This place was by far our favourite hostel out of all of the ones we stayed in on our 6 week trip. The dorms were clean and pleasant. The staff were awesome! The price is reasonable. The location is great, its five mins walk from the metro and train station, you can get to all the sites super easily. The... More
