Hostel is very cheap, but I'm sure, there is no sense in saving this few euro... Hostel is very "specific". The landlady is very nice, but the hostel is located in old, humid and stinky building. Our room was dark and it had no window (while outside is 35 degree!!!). Maybe only our room was so "unacctaptable", but they shouldn't offer THIS ROOM to the people.


Very friendly lady. But the room was small with five beds, no air conditioning, just fans and it was boiling in august. The Bathroom was basic, dinning area very cramped.

The landlady is a friendly women but sometimes a bit chaotic or stressed. For example, our breakfast just wasn´t there sometimes, which I find rather strange when having paid for a `bed and breakfast´. When there was breakfast it was not that much but it was satisfying and she made a different breakfast for us the night before we left, because we had to leave really early in the morning which was really kind. A couple of times there was no toiletpaper, so we had to go look for her to ask for new

"great" window view


There were one room without windows. At the begining we were loceted in room with windows, it was so-so, but acceptable. Then we were moved to other room, no windows, no air to breath, unpleasant smell in room. Staff was not reachable when necessary. If you chose this, definately ask romm with windows, because airconditioning also is not available.

In a narrow alley smelling of urine. Very humid, worst bed I ever tried. The breakfast is very poor if you are not Italian. Also extremly nationalist owner. She lied to us about public transportation trying to forcesell private transportation.


Excellent location near grocery store and beach. Be sure to arrive at the time you indicate in your reservation. Place is old but clean. Free wifi, just ask for the password. When arriving, call the number on the Hostelworld website, not the one posted at the door. Be sure to have detailed directions to the location. In a safe area. Manager was very friendly and spoke English fairly well. Kitchen facilities and breakfast (coffee and pastry) included.


Perfectly located between the beach, centro storico, port and bus terminal. A great value for the money... and Graziella is absolutely wonderful! The room was clean, quiet and private. Tucked away in a small alley way, you're sure to feel at home in the midst of all the locals. My favorite part about Trapani is that everyone is in a complete mode of relaxation!


A very nice place to stay, close to the beach, grocery store, and port. The layout of the place was weird and trying to find it and figure out how to check in was nearly impossible but good value for the money. Breakfast was nice and having a kitchen was also nice, even though the microwave didnt work. We stayed 5 nights and had a room with no windows which was pretty weird, but after we switched it was great.


Very nice hostel with polite and charming Administration, located in the historical center of the town.
