    Excellent hostel. Good social area and facilities. Staff were great. Only thing I could say was that the bunk rooms were very busy so not the ideal sleep but hey it’s a hostel

    Great hostel with very friendly staff in the middel of Palermo. The station and city center are both near. The hostel is on a busy road which produces a lot or noise, however you can only hear it in the common room.

    The hostel was in a great location, right next to the train station and super close to the historic center. The staff was also super helpful and nice, great atmosphere for meeting people. It felt super safe, but just FYI there isn't a lock on the female dorm room, however there are lockers. I had an amazing stay.

    Overall, a good hostel. Its very close to the train station (good for airport transfers) but its on a very major road, so can get very loud at night. The staff are lovely. Always down for a good chat and happy to help out when needed. The breakfast is simple, but a good atart to the day. Overall, a nice base from which to explore Palermo, but its certainly not a high end hostel. Good value for money.

    Very good value for money, every thing you need in a hostel. Could do with some more lighting in the showers. Few issues with the power dropping out and the air con and WiFi turning off. Possible to socialize but lacking a bit of atmosphere.

    Overall experience at Balarm Hostel wasn't bad but also not great. The staff girls were great. As a solo traveller I was disappointed to find that there weren't any parties or meetings for people to socialize. There is not much atmosphere. They only turn on the AC at night. There is no AC in the showers and washrooms which get really humid. Good location, easily accessible, close to main attractions and central station.

    Difficult to make friends w the hostel setup. Least welcoming reception I've ever seen at a hostel. Nice kitchen and balcony area. Good location so close to the train station.

    It is an ok hostel but it was too hot for me - not running the ac in the day time except at the front desk of the hostel seemed wrong, i cant deal with waking up to a wet pillow.
