I tend to travel to travel on a low budget, I generally only couchsurf, though on this trip I experimented with both airbnb.com and staying at hostels. The Yellow in Rome ended up being the best place I stayed at out of my whole trip. It was 25 euros plus 2 euros for come city tax for a bed in... More

Lovely and helpful staff. We stayed there 3 nights in a private room and we enjoyed the Yellow by night as well as being able to have some rest when we were partied out!! The Yellow is near by the Termini station and you can visit the city by walking. The yellow bar is great and cheap compared to the... More

The Yellow was definately the best hostel of the trip, loved my time there. Did a 5 week trip around Europe in January and this hostel was great. Awesome staff, fun people, great bar and good location. Everybody was really helpful and had no worry getting around.

This seemed like a party hostel but I was only there for one night and didn't get to see it. The staff were nice, the rooms were big and clean, there was free wi-fi, you could rent an ipad for free and leave your baggage there for free during the day. Negatives were the rooms were stuffy, the bathrooms weren't... More

This hostel is just five minutes walk from Rome Termini Station, ideal location, close to subway. Rooms are very basic, beds are quite comfy with very secure lockers under the beds. Shower rooms are shared between a floor, they were extremely dirty, full of hair and grime when i used them on every occassion. Dorms were hot and stuffy, with... More

The hostel is advertised as a party hostel, which led to a bit of disappointment with their small bar, 10 am check out time, and lack of facilities. There is no kitchen. However, the hostel is minutes from pizza, laundry, grocery store, and the train/metro station. They also have iPads and a computer available for usage! The staff is great!

The Yellow is a really good hostel, one of the best I have stayed in (and I have stayed in many before). The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and decent sized. The 9-bedroom ensuite was amazing, with a kitchen as well which was really useful! The drinks are really cheap, the bar and downstairs area are... More

We had an amazing stay at The Yellow. It was clean, had friendly, helpful staff and a great atmosphere. Location is good too - only a 10 minute walk from Termini station. The bar downstairs is cheap and provides a fun nightlife! We would definitely stay again.

Location wise this is nice place. Termini railway station and a metro station very close to the hostel. Nightlife at the hostel is good but absence of kitchen does not give you the complete feel of a hostel. a pizzaria around the corner is the best bet for budget meals. Staff cheerful and ready to help. plus points, free ipad... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
