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.


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..
