    Very convenient location for the train and bus station, useful if you are getting in late or carrying heavy bags. Hostel facilities are good, and the staff were all helpful and fun. Sadly the Via Roma is one of the noisiest streets in Palermo, so it can be difficult to relax sometimes (although, obviously, this is no fault of the hostel). It is a great base for exploring the historical centre and all the markets, and an easy walk to the nightlife scene around the Quattro Canti area.

    The Wi-Fi and the air conditioner didn’t work in the dorms. But other than that the place was great and the people were very nice.

    Great hostel honestly, the vibe there was very good and the staff was friendly. The kitchen area is large and it's easy to cook there. We met some people at the hostel and had a blast! Would recommend to anyone...

    The facilities could definitely use some refurbishment and in particular the mattresses and pillows need replacing. Still, I had a good time here and I would come back again. The common area/kitchen is a nice place to hang out and I met a lot of cool people there.

    Kind of a random hostel, not a lot of effort put into decoration, atmosphere, ... there is not even a simple proper couch in the common area... wifi doesn't work, A/C only in the dorms, and it didn't work when i arrived then i got fixed, there is no hot water in the showers... i mean it's not a bad hostel but you just don't feel any vibe whatsoever that's a shame. Location is perfect though.

    I had a poor experience at the Hostel, unfortunately. We didn't have water for half a day there and most of the staff didn't even bother to explain to the gests (only after I asked if it was normal to be without water). One of the people working there was pretty friendly but the rest not so much. Also, the air conditioner for the room wasn't working properly because the walls of the room don't reach the ceiling (so it has to cool down a huge area).

    I was expecting more from the hostel. The Internet did not work in the room and we even run out of water one day. I have bought food, named the package, and even though someone took it without asking.

    The place was filthy. They make sure to clean the common areas but the rooms were so gross - there were cigarette buds on the floor, clots of dust and dirt, and we even had a rotten banana on the lockers during the whole time I stayed there. At first I was put in a mixed room full of men over 50 that were drinking all day. Plus, there are no locks on the room doors. Easy to say that I didn't feel safe there.
