We stayed at Almaran hostel for 1 night (4 people group). The owner was really nice and helpful. There are a lot of mixed reviews about this hostel, but i can only say good words. The air conditioning was working fine, the rooms are tidy and the location was perfect for us.

Oooohhh....finally the truth comes out ! Thanks for your kind review, hope to see you again ; ) Antonio


A bit expesive for what they offer. The air does not work, and we don't like the bathroom, very tiny and outside of the room. They don't have breackfast but we suposse to pay for that.

Dear guest, when you booked you could see breakfast was not included in rates, that's why we are not so expensive as others ! About AC you could know how many guests sleep with lower regulation and the morning after I find heavy covers.... on bed becouse it was too cold ! Usually we have free AC till 2,00 AM and then after 8,00 AM...... it free in the time !


Clean place but could not access internet. A/C kept shutting off (manager said it was blown fuse, too much power) which led to hot and uncomfortable restless night. Both of these contributed to my stay being vastly overpriced & false advertising.

Oh dear guest,If you did not get my last email it was one day before your arrival at Almaran's ! Air conditioning stopped after 2,00 AM and restarted at 8,00 AM , now you say you didn't. WiFi connection was perfect for all guests but not for you...you mobile functions were wrong, let some tecnycian give a look ! You only payed € 31,50 for one only night on midle August to me...was it too much ? Other people could not book it at all ! Have nice and calm holidays around ; ))


Excellent location - only 5-10 minute walk from the bus and train station. 2 minute walk from a supermarket, bank, bakers, gelato store and pizzerias. On the other side of the road you have the ticket office and port where the boats leave for the island trips. Perfect location for us. The host is lovely and had excellent English and advice for your stay. Good guy. Comfy bed and good bathroom. Will definitely stay here again! :) 10/06/2014

What to say ? Thank you sooo much for your excellent review and hoping to see you again at Almaran BB asap ; - ))


We stayed only one night. The staff was very helpful. The Almaran BB Trapani Port has comfortable bedrooms and clean bathrooms.

Thanks for your kind review.....it's so nice to get a good review from one only night staying guests !


Arrived late to Hostel for different reasons. Also, was charged an extra '10 eur for being late'. Thats not how treat your customers on arrival. Otherwise, nothing special here, At the same time, what do you expect for 25eur a night?

Would it be better to write I tried to wrote you 3 times but no answer then you get here 3 hour later your first arrival advice in the middle of night and I have to pay for extra as usual everywhere. About more you wrote .... no answer at all..... people can understand why..... ; ))


Though the welcome was everything else than friendly, the room was quite o. k., but extremely noisy. Bathroom was on the corridor, a bit annoying, but still it was a private bathroom.

Nice hostel! The location was perfect for us and the owner was kind and gave us great tips about the city. Everything was very clean and the room was comfortable. Only one thing bothered me: we didn't have internet access in our room, only in the reception, which was in another building. We didn't have the keys for this other building, so we had to stay on the street to use it (the kitchen was also in this other building). And we also didn't have the hairdryer.

Thanks for your booking but you forget you were welcome any way !


Very close to Airport bus stop, 10 min walking from main Bus station, and very close to city centre. Room and bathroom were very clean. I never used the kitchen/living room areas, but I am sure Antonio would not have minded me using them. Surrounding area was quiet and safe. Internet worked properly, which is a plus. I would go back to this B&B.
