This was supposed to be a B&B. I'm still waiting for the Breakfast part. Until the owner gives you the key, you'll have to call him on his cell, wait for him to show up to get the door. The place is OK if you stay just one night, but not much more. There was some bad (sewage) smell coming out of the bathroom.
The location is perfect, next to the bus stop to the airport and Palermo. We were received nicely by the manager, who was very nice. It is more a place for spending the night though, there is no common room to share with other guests. Cleaners in the morning are very persisting to clean your room around 9:30-10:00. I would recommend it anyway, because of how we were received, the location and the price.
The location of the place is the only plus. Mostly if you arrived late or want to leave earlier in the ferry next door. Besides that, is a bunch of rooms in a flat near the port for (trying to) rest. In the end, you get that typical feeling that "staff main purpose is to make money. The rest... who cares?"
