The Yellow - Hostel, Rome
Lot of things to offer. Dated couple room.
We stayed in a couple room. It was dated. Water was just Luke warm not hot. Sheets were clean. Elevator 1 star. Does not work half the time. Bar has a few good things to eat. I mean generic but good portions gets your day going in the Morning. Beer and drinks not particularly cheap. Worth staying if you get the place for 60 bucks usd. In year 2018. Scooter rental was expensive 50 EUR for the day. 10 extra for helmet. Works out fine when you don't have the time to shop around. Customer service at reception was proactive, courteous (the lady with the piercings especially and Nepal person) . They have weighing scale for packing bags. The hostels in the main building are probably renovated. 3+ people.

Awesome place to stay! Easy to make friends
I enjoyed my short visit at the Yellow greatly! I will be staying here next time I am in Rome! The staff are super friendly and helpful, the bunk beds were comfortable, you're provided with a nice clean towel, the showers are hot, you have a place to secure your bag (bring your own lock) a small lock box is provided, and they serve free pasta! There are many good places to eat nearby, and it is easy to get a cab to take you to the main attractions nearby! (about 10 euro to get to the Colosseum) location is close by the main train station as well. If you are a light sleeper bring headphones or ear plugs.

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 It was very old, outdated and smelt like something died in there.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.
