    Yellow Hostel


    It claims to be 9 times winner of the "Hostelworld Best Hostels" as voted by Hostelworld customers! Well, that made me curious. So I stayed 7 nights. I was not very satisfied with the hostel compared to international and national standards, but I did like the staff and the people I met. It's like a big family.

    You can book online at

    Unique Quality: PROS: young, nice, English speaking staff; free internet; free DVD; kitchen with fridge; lockers; 24 hours access; you can leave your luggage there after check-out (before 10 am); PAM-supermarket around the corner

    CONS: the price; the bath rooms are a nightmare; the beds horrible; the free t-shirt when staying 5 nights was only available in S and M; you should not use the lift (I was living at the 5th floor, so of course I did)

    Directions: near Termini Station

    Mellow Yellow


    Yellow Hostel is conveniently located a few blocks from Roma Termini. The International staff is very friendly and helpful, especially when showing you how to get around the city. They also organize pub crawls and special dinners through the hostel.

    As for the actual accommodations, that depends. We ended up in a 10-person dorm where the guests liked to get up at about 7:30 a.m. My bed was an undulating mattress topped by a matted pillow. Our window was permanently stuck open, letting both light and cold winter air in.

    Back in 2003, we were paying 16 Euro a night. I remember it as a great experience, but also remember that the place was slightly dirty. I also remember lockers, which provide a sense of security while you're away from your belongings.

    Unique Quality: Exceptionally outgoing employees. Also, 24-hour FREE internet access, a full kitchen, a 24-hour bar, and English-language television.

    Directions: Exit train station on Via Marsala. Walk down about 4 blocks, taking a left on Via Palestro. The hostel is down 1 1/2 blocks on the left.

    A laid-back Roman hostel


    Though a little expensive, most of Rome is, so get over it! 20 euros is the cost for a bed in a 10-person co-ed dorm room, some free internet, a kitchen (saves a heck of a lot of money ), and a entertainment room. The location was not too far from Termini station, and is in a quiet part of Rome not far from the action. Book ahead if at all possible, Rome is busy.

taxi for 5 people

by bakes5

are the taxis large enough for 5 people with luggage?

Re: taxi for 5 people

I've never used one, but the ones I've seen in Rome & environs have been ordinary saloon-type taxis, which wouldn't hold 5 + luggage.

Re: taxi for 5 people

Not even without luggage! The normal yellow Rome taxis take 3 in the back and 1 in the front, max, so you will need 2 taxis unless you use a limousine (meaning chauffeur-driven car) company that offers "people carriers", e.g.

You might want to check with Stefano at or with to get a vehicle that will be big enough for your group. If you take two cabs it will cost 45 euros each cab. You can probably get a better rate through one of these two companies. Both rate very highly on this and other boards.
