    Polina was awesome from the very 1st moment. The friendliest welcome, all the insider tips about the area and city in general, ever so helpful and genuinely very very smiley and happy :D It was a very short stay, but I felt very comfortable and will definitely be back at the earliest opportunity. Loved the city, it's people, the food... Only met Massimo as I was getting ready to leave but the brief conversation also caused an excellent impression on me. Thanx for making my stay so memorable :D

    Great location, very close to train station to airport and other day trip destinations. Staff was friendly and facilities were nice especially for price. Only piece of advice is make sure staff turns the air conditioning unit on in the room you’re staying in a few hours before you intend to sleep or it will be boiling if you’re traveling during summer. Other than that no issues and a pleasant stay.

    The mixed-gender dorm facing the main street was very hot (with the AC broken), noisy, and mosquito-plagued since we had to keep the patio doors open and the street, one floor below, is very busy with traffic at all hours. I was there 3 nights and those staying from earlier had the same complaint. So either fix the AC or put in fans if costs are an issue. As the 4th hostel stay in Sicily, and likely 200th overall, though the staff were friendly, the layout wasn't conducive to a good vibe.
