“Best hostel of my trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012

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.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2012

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 clean, it was quite noisy and there were no maps available in reception. The location was good, only 5 min walk from Termini. It seemed like a good place to make friends though and I would probably stay here again.

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 just one small fan to cool the whole 7 bed room. Was very hard to sleep at night as it was so sweaty. Internet access is available for free for a limited time per person. You may have to wait a long time to get to use it though. The bar downstairs is a great place to meet people and if you pick up a map from reception on arrival, theres lots of discount vouchers and coupons for use across the city. Would stay here again at a push, maybe try somewhere different first.

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!

Room Tip: The first floor dorms still get a bar or two of wifi.

Brilliant Stay, made so many friends and really helpful staff! The bar is fab, games always on the go. Breakfast is a yummy start to the day. Felt safe and secure, really well located too! Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Although the big mixed rooms are they cheapest, if its a good night sleep you want go for a smaller...

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 great for meeting people, free use of ipads is really useful, and you also get a free drink on arrival (I advise getting the drink called 'Beverly hills iced tea'- try it and you'll see why)

The hostel is also really close to the main Termini train station, and nowhere is that far to walk in Rome!

Room Tip: The 9 bedroom ensuite is one of the better ones (has own shower/toilet and a kitchen as well)

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.
