    Excellent...Palermo is a grand walking city and this hostel was close to everything. John kept the hostel spotless..the white sheets were crisp and clean and the floors were always clean. The kitchen was a cook's delight with all appliances available. There is a deck for smokers and the hotel is full of musical instruments. The staff is most helpful. My night walk was on the boulevrd of fashion a few blocks away. It is safe, clean and affordable. 5 stars

    Ho scelto A Casa di Amici perche' e' in un locale centrale nel centro, ma sono stata sorpresata per scoprire tutto quello che offrono! L'hostel e' molto carino, il staff e' sapevole ed accogliente (ho avuto alcuni problemi arrivando in Italia e loro me hanno aiutato molto), c'e' un posto per le valige e colazione gratis! Ho passato due notti belli al hostel e sono triste che non avevo il tempo goderlo di piu'. Torno il primo possibile! Please visit when you go to Palermo, you will love it!

    I loved this hostel. The staff is amazing, everything is perfectly clean, the breakfast is great... but most of all the vibe is just really really positive. Hard to put into words. Highly recommend

    This place is so unique. Receptionist was so nice, she helped me with a lot of info and I could get into the room before the check-in time. I will stay here again when visit Palermo.

    It's clean and has a decent common area. I also like the staff, they are cheerful and I felt like they actually wanted to get to know me. What really sets it apart is their huge collection of instruments. I can imagine that epic jams are happening on a regular basis, unfortunately I was only there for one night in the low season so I didn't get to be part of that.

    The staff were lovely, welcoming and very helpful. The atmosphere of the hostel was great - unfortunately I only stayed for a night but the people there were all so friendly and the hostel is set up in a very sociable way that it would have been lovely to stay longer and make the most of the friendly environment. The only negative was that the room was very noisy as it was right next to a very busy street, so if you stay here make sure you bring some decent earplugs!

    The front desk staff was very helpful with ideas for where to go in the city. The location was good, walkable to everything. Not the cleanest/newest building, but it worked for the one night we stayed.

    The staff were so friendly and welcoming. It was close to the centre but quite far away from the train station (25 mins). There were lockers but they didn’t feel very secure. For breakfast you could have toast and a coffee for 2€ which I thought was good value. I’d definitely stay here again!
