From as soon as our taxi arrived at the door the staff made us feel welcome. The main hostel but is actually across the road from reception but they had someone walk us over and show us exactly where we where going. The yellow bars next door and we had lunch there which was lovely, then at night time we... More

The hostel takes up most of the street, including reception, the rooms and the bar and restaurant. The staff are friendly and the bar has a great atmosphere, perfect for meeting other travellers. I was in a female dorm which was great, nice and clean and had a makeup area with hair dryers! The hostel is right near the main... More

It was big enough for the 2 sets of bunk beds, table and 2 chairs and for all 4 of us to move around. Breakfast was good for a comtinential breakkie unlike other... More

It is hard to understand all the 5 star reviews, we were very disappointed. We were two girls who booked 2 beds in the mixed gender 6 bed dorm. When we arrived the room was not clean, smelt terrible, floors not clean, beds looking questionable. However the shared bathrooms were the main problem - simply not clean & hygienic. The... More

We loved our stay at The Yellow! Very nice and helpful staff and the building felt super modern. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quite large. They have safes for your valuables and big wire drawers under the beds you can lock. The bar downstairs gets pretty wild which is fun if you're looking for that. The breakfast... More

GREAT location,good wifi and clean rooms that is basically all I need. Their bar is always packed and has a great vibe to it, it's a perfect party hostel. Other than that, we stayed in a double private room which was very basic for its price and most of the staff seemed just annoyed to be working. These 2 things... More

So maybe we just had bad luck but I really don't understand all the 5 star reviews on here. The two of us arrived at the hostel at about 2.30 and from the entrance it looked like a really fun place with a great atmosphere so we had high hopes. We were only in Rome for one night before going... More

Great staff. Nice building, with elevator, an amazing and huuuge kitchen, play area, clean rooms with nice matresses, wifi that works really well, and a bar/club just across the street. Breakfast is not included but besides that everything's great. Near Termini station and near Cavour metro station. Has lots of restaurants and gelaterias near by too!

If you want to stay at the hostel and party without ever leaving, this is the hostel for you. Friendly staff, upstairs bar, dance floor downstairs. The downstairs area opens at midnight ish and always has a funky smell. Really easy to socialize and meet people. Not great if you want peace and quiet as parties go on until morning... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
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.
