Extremely nice and friendly staff! Especially Jeff and Masihur they went out of their way to ensure I had an enjoyable stay. Will definitely recommend. This is not a loud party hostel, nevertheless they had free Sangria nights which was great.

Good wifi and great location. Staff were helpful and gave a map which helped us use what little time we set for a day in Rome. Good shower and quite clean. A little hard to find though as it is in a building without a sign of some sort. Served us well for one night.


this hostel is really good value for money if your only staying for a short period of time, The workers are really welcoming and upgraded us to a private room on our last night. The hostels clean the only downside is theres no kitchen however, you do get free cups of tea, so what more do you need. Hostels not in the main centre but is close to a metro.


Staff were great and friendly


I booked this hostel based on its location and raiting of 83%. It was my last stop on a monthlong trip across Europe, so I had some expectations on what a hostel rated 83% on Hostelworld should be like. Unfortunately Skywalk did not meet my expectations, except for location. The 8 bunk room was far more cramped than any other I had previously stayed in, the showers were the least clean I had experienced, and there was no community area or kitchen for people to congregate in.


This hostel was in a great location for getting around as it was just a minute from the emanuelle metro stop and was located near to the coliseum and the st. Maria cathedral (beautiful church worth a look). The staff was excellent, very kind and helpful finding whatever you are interested in. If you are planning on spending your days and nights exploring the city this is a good place to stay.


Every thing is great at this hostel. And every thing fits in the hostel's description. Staffs are perfect esp. Masud.


When we arrived at 9:00pm we found out that reception closes at 6:00pm. They said this was specified on the website however it did not say this anywhere on the app! So they moved us to another hostel that was owned by the same man. That hostel was over crowed, overbooked and we had to pay more to stay there. the next day we moved back to the original hostel which was a lot better. the owner didn't have anything to say when we mentioned that the check in restraint wasn't mentioned on the site


Not what I was expecting, definitely needs improvement


the staff are extremely nice and generous!

Quiet hostel located in a historical apartment building. Not far away from Termini railway station. Shops are just round the corner and open till late.

While the outside looks sketchy, the inside is lovely and the staff are super friendly. A good place to stay if money is an issue.


The hostel is 2 min walk to Vitorrio subway (takes about 10 min to Vatican City) and 10/12min walk to Colosseum. But the surrounding zone does not inspire a lot of safety, so be aware at night. There is breakfast included (in a nearby cafe) and also the staff regularly gives water/juice/snacks/fruit. Even thought the staff were very friendly, there is a lack of organization. We had to change rooms twice, when we first arrived there was a lot of confusion on which room we were gonna stay at..
