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

Really nice accommodations. We stayed in the main building in a private 2 twin bed room with an ensuite for an extremely reasonable price! The Yellow bar is right across the street with great drink deals and even better people, at midnight they move everyone inside so you can't hear the party from your room. 10/10 stay!

Me and my boyfriend recently stayed 7 nights in a private suite in The Yellow and it was a lot better than we had expected. Some of the pictures online don't really live up to the quality of the room. Our room was only on the first floor so no long tiring trips upstairs; the room had air conditioning, a... More

I recently stayed in a private twin room with a friend in the Yellow. The hostel reception is across from the hostel itself, this didn't serve to be a problem for us as we only used the reception to check in and out. The hostel has a bar which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is a lot to choose... More

My friend and I booked quite in advance a private 4 bed female dorm with ensuite for 3 nights in July. Upon booking the hostel we read on their website about the aircon, kitchen facilities, free wifi etc etc so thought we had a good deal. However different story upon arriving. PROS: good location, right near termini train station and... More

This was our first stop in Europe and my first experience at a hostel and all things considered for what a hostel is supposed to be it was a very enjoyable experience. The place had a lot of character and super helpful/pleasant staff. We got a private room with AC which is CRUTIAL for July. Totally worth the extra money... More
