    The perfect stay for Palermo! An 8 minute walk to the train station and no more than 10 to the city center. Breakfast was enough to get your day going as well (muffins were awesome!)

    Really nice Hostel. Super close to Palermo Centrale. Everything worked as it should. My only complaints would be that the lockers were very small and that the top bunk beds had no fence on one side so you could just fall down in your sleep. Very nice and friendly staff❤️ Except that the martian man Christopher was watching us at all times, even in our sleep😬

    Only a 5min walk from the train station, this hostel has super friendly staff, a big kitchen area, comfy beds, and even hot water in the showers! Had a great time here, and one night a volunteer had a birthday party so the place was buzzing and got to meet lots of people. However, it is a pricey (€15/night) with extra charges for late-check in (€5), luggage storage later than 3pm after check-out (€5), and brekkie (€3). S/O to Naomy for lots of coffee, aperol spritzes and fun convos))

    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.

    Great location and lovely people. Too noisy at night as it's on the busiest streets of the city. They had no towels to give me .

    Unfortunately the hostel was closed by the time I was there (even though the front billboard with the opening time was saying it should have been open). I called the owners, they just blamed me and apologized for letting me sleep on the ground that night. My first night as an homeless in town...I would not recommend this hostel.
