For my first experience of an italian hostel experience this was definitely a good one!! Been wanting to go to rome since I was a kid and this was certainly a good way of combining culture and nightlife. Friendly at check in - nice atmosphere. Private room check in hours (and check out) are very flexible (not to say dorms... More

My friend and I booked this hostel a month in advance and upon arrival only one of our names was on the booking. Subsequently we were split up on the first night with my friend having to sleep in a 6-bedroom with mostly males. The showers resembled the "chokey" in the film Matilda with what appeared to be rust and... More

We originally booked a mixed dorm but when we got there, we got upgraded to a private room which had our own private bathroom and AC and our own balcony! Rome was the last leg of our trip and the upgrade was a nice way to end the trip. The people at the reception were great and was able to... More

Holy crap this place is amazing. If you are looking for the cheapest drinks in Rome and a couple hundred of people looking to have a good time, you have found the right place. Happy hour from 12-9 everyday. DJ every night until 3am or later. Theme parties. Burlesque. Karaoke. The best bartenders ever. American style restaurant in the middle... More

It's really near to the train station so it is convenient to go anywhere especially if you bought a roma pass. There is a supermarket & many restaurants & food courts at the train station. Right beside the hostel & across the road from it, there are some nice pizza restaurants and other restaurants you can smell the coffee from... More

Although i only stayed one night here i enjoyed myself as a single traveler. invited by other guests to join their party meant the night was a great one. wasn't sure with my booking after reading reviews but was a nice place for one or two nights - just don't plan on much sleep.

What a disgrace of a hostel. The management/staff should be embarrassed of this place. An absolute embarrassment if you ask me. We had booked months in advance asking for a 6-bed room. Upon arrival, we were told that our group of 5 had to be split up. The chick at the front desk said she would "try" to get things... More

I thought, ok, I am 24...not too many years have passed since college, I can handle this young vibe. Umm...no. The Yellow is a decent price, and is in a mediocre location, however the noise was absolutely insane. I am not a light sleeper by any means, and the noise in the middle of the night by the many drunken... More

To be honest, I didn't have a pleasant experience here. Not the hostel's fault, just really inconsiderate roommates from Argentina. The rooms/floors were small so it was hard to meet other hostel guests. The staff were polite. The location is great however. Bathrooms were clean. Pub crawls are indeed banned in Rome (it's not hard to verify this). Overall, a... More
