Location is very far from the main city center, however the water is literally the backyard of the hostel. It is absolutely gorgeous! The bus stop is also right outside the hostel! I love that they sell bus tickets at the front desk, so convenient. Wifi is only in the common room but it's better than nothing.


Great location with access to the sea to go swimming. It's a little far from central Palermo but it is possible to get a bus into the city. I found the staff to be a bit unfriendly, but the location and the facilities are excellent. Highly recommended for some time to chill on the coast.


The location for me was perfect. 30 second walk to the beach which looks over Monte Gallo which is stunning. Palermo city is about 30-40 minutes by bus (628 right outside the hostel) and then the 101 into the city. The buses run regularly. I only wanted to spend one day in the city because the location of the hostel was so lovely. Mondello was far too busy for me. I met the locals and travellers who were really helpful as were the staff. Could be cleaned more regularly but I didn't mind. Great.

Our flight got delayed so we didn't arrive at the hostel until 1 o'clock at the night. When we got there we didn't find the staff. Then we ran in to some other guests that told us that the staff had left... So we didn't get any keys to a room, and it all ended with a night in the car. Not the best!

I'm very sorry for it but when you booked you read that reception closes at 11pm but if you had called us before that time sombody would have waited for you. I hope you could come another time


Good spot if you are looking for a quite place to relax.
