Great hostel to meet people and have a good time!
Great location, very close to Termini station (short 5 min walk). Stayed in a 4 female dorm. The room was clean and the bathroom spacious. The bar downstairs was great, but not cheap though, don't expect any discounts, same prices like any other bar in town. Breakfast is not included but there is a nice kitchen available. Wifi was excellent.

Wasn't my favourite place. I didn't like that they didn't have any social events planned, besides going to the bar, so I found it hard to meet people. The bar is SO loud so if you are in room facing the street, you can't get to sleep until like 5 in the morning. You can't even shut the windows to dim the noise a bit. Always found like I was annoying the staff at the front desk if I had questions. I watched housekeeping clean my room one day and they don't change the blanket between guests which I find kind of gross. I knew this was a 'party' hostel going it to it so my exceptions weren't high, but they definitely failed to meet them.

Excellent experience 👍👍
This hostel has to be one of the nicest I’ve stayed in this year. Customer service was excellent, rooms were spacious (4 Bed room) close to Termini train station and everything else..

It was a better stay!
I stayed here the night before, and due to separate reservation, I had to checkout and check in again, but the staff were great. Baggage was kept for free until the next check in. My 6 bed dorm was very comfortable. Unlike the 4 bed dorm I was in, the bedroom was very clean and the shower had the proper door and the floor did not get flooded after the shower. The bed did shake, but was better, with a light and a electric outlet by each bed.

Didn't get a comfortable sleep.
The location was about 7 min from the train station. Not too crowded, but I felt safe walking around. The staff were nice and friendly. It was super busy when I checked in, but the staff kept a smile their faces and did what they had to do. The room was not so great. I stayed at 4 bed female dorm and it was small and dirty. The shower was good, but the floor get flooded after someone takes shower. The bed movesand shakes everytime someone moves during night and I woke up at least once every hour at night. Overall, it was an uncomfortable stay in 4 bed dorm.

Good facilities and location
Yellow hostel has great facilities on offer for guests. Everything is accessible and convenient to the hostel. I personally didn’t enjoy the room, it smelt awful and wasn’t ready on check in time so we had to wait which was fine but when we got into the room it really wasn’t a reflection of the pictures advertised. It was very old, outdated and smelt like something died in there. I would think this hostel would be great for tour groups, young people wanting to party but it wasn’t for us. I really like what they have developed in the street with the bar, restaurant, laundromat etc. though. It makes it easy for solo travellers.

After 10 years, much better!
We stayed at The Yellow 10 years ago on our first trip to Rome and decided to visit again! The place is much bigger and with a great atmosphere for young people: bar, garden, scape room etc.

Book at your own risk
Good service, good location, and spacious room. However, the elevator broke down a couple times, and my room was on the 5th level. The beds were very creaky and noisy. It required a lot of effort to pull out the locker underneath the bed. The shower water could be warmer during my winter stay. The guests were very inconsiderate and the noisiest ever, and I've stayed at some famously noisy places in the world.

Ok for a short stay
Nice hostel, close to via Marsala where you can take the bus either to Ciampino or Fiumicino airport. Shower is tinny though.

혼자지내기에 좋습니다.
서비스는 직원들이 친절했고 한국인들이 많이와서 잘 응대해줍니다. 청결도는 침구류는 깨끗한 편이었고 화장실도 개별로 되어있어서 (여성4인도미토리 기준) 좋았습니다. 하지만 매일 방청소를 하지않고 체크아웃이 다 되었을 때 한번 청소를 하는 것 같습니다. 그래도 전반적으로 깔끔하고 그가격으로 깨끗한 편이었습니다. 3박하면서 저는 편안하게 지냈었고 방상태도 좋았습니다. 그리고 위치도 기차역 근처라 짐들고 다음 도시로 이동할때 좋았습니다. 집 근처가 펍이나 가게들이 많아서 12시가 넘어서 혼자 돌아다녀도 전혀 위험하지 않았고 치안이 좋았습니다. 그리고 근처에 호스텔이 운영하는 펍이 있는데 한번쯤 가서 친구들 만나고 술마시면 좋을 것 같습니다. 저렴한 가격치고는 상태나 청결도 위치가 매우 만족합니다^^ (3박 10만원)
