Super friendly staff and amazing high security room which made me feel welcome and safe!
There were always performances at the yellow bar across the road that were great to enjoy while having a beer with the other travelers and locals in Rome!

Super close to the train station which made it really easy to go to tourist attractions and travel anywhere throughout Rome!

I would/will recommend this hostel to anyone looking for somewhere to stay while in Rome!

I've been here twice and I've enjoyed them a lot. Located in the heart of Rome, "The Yellow" is just a 10 minute walk from train station. Incredibly, it has its own affordable night club and that gives an amazing atmosphere to meet new people. However and frankly, during my second stayed hostel's furniture were shoddy and uncomfortable. On the other hand, warm staff and excellent customer service.

Thanks a lot for your review, we're happy you chose the YellowSquare for the second time!
We're going through a refurbishment but some of the rooms (the basic ones) still have to be renewed and that's why they're cheaper than the standard and the ensuite ones.
Once again, thanks for choosing us. We hope to see you again in the future!

I was made to wait for 2 hrs just to check in. The check in time was at 3pm and I arrived at 5pm. Literally they made me to wait until 7pm. Most inefficient hosts ever. Most people just roam around and talk to backpackers are having good time. Not doing their actual work.

We apologize If your check-in process took longer than you expected. Sometimes It can happen as many clients come at the same time, but we are looking into this issue and hope to resolve it promptly. With regards to your comment, we checked your check-in time on our software and it shows that you were checked in at 5.25PM. Meanwhile, you were welcomed and accommodated in our waiting area.
Regarding the staff, probably you did not know and we would like to explain,that we have senior and junior reception staff members and they have different roles within the hostel: junior members give information and welcome guests and the seniors check them in.
Once again we apologize If you did not have the best experience at Yellowsquare but we hope you will give us a second chance in the future. All the best!

Nothing was bad. I felt secure, hygienic, and provided for. Having the partnership with the bar across the street provided for discounted drinks and the opportunity to more meaningfully connect with people one meets in a hostel. The staffing at the front desk could be higher, but it was an overall more-than-satisfactory stay.
