    Its in the center, just behind the castle Ursino. It has a good courtyard where to relax by having a drink or conversation. Personal is very happy and very wellcome, the guy at the reception waited me to arrive the first night from the airport, with a delayed flight. He was very kind! There are many beds and not good lockers system in the room. Also, for breakfast there are not personal or machines or bar choice. Nice staying overall. Thanks

    I slept at one of the dorms during my stay. A good price for value option. The place os very clean and they have a nice inner court where you can hang out and a large kitchen. Don’t expect too much of the dorms dough, they are clean but very basic.

    I read so many reviews for this place. No bedbugs...they are's so hot, you have to keep the windows open, so therefore mosquito bites... more like welps!! Great location, clean, equipped kitchen, nice patio.I do agree with the comments about the rude cleaning people, the owner is even rude,she sits on the patio smoking&staring, 2 of the check in staff, but the only nice one was Gianni. The girl pushed me out of the way, while I was making my coffee, never said excuse me.Ignored me.

    Staff controls the AC and turns it on at night only. They came into the room in the middle of the night and turned the AC off. The entire room woke up an hour later in sweat and there was nobody at the front desk to turn it back on. (36 degrees). You have to pay to leave your luggage after checkout (€2.50) After check out, stayed for about an hour in the common room and then was rudely kicked out. Politely complied, asked to use the toilet and they said NO! Nice common area and kitchen.

    Hardest bed ever, no lock on the door, WiFi never worked, and even though they promote air conditioning, they’re too cheap and try to lie to you saying that it doesn’t work (they take the control away too) and if you do turn it on they tell you can only keep it on for maximum 1hr. I have so many mosquitos bites from having to keep the windows open. Pretty much the worst stay in a hostel ever, it was too hot too sleep and the receptionist kept walking into our room up until 1am

    Beware if you are renting this hostel anytime soon. There is a terrible middle aged man who is rude to everyone. He will cuss you out if you are making any noise in the room and he sleeps all day. Without him the hostel is average.

    Horrible. Fully of homeless guests, one of which was extremely rude when we got up at 8am to catch a bus - swearing, using misogynistic language. Unfortunately, we had to stay in the mixed dorm - big mistake. Incredibly you had to pay to rent a lock aswell. Did not feel safe at all in my stay here and the location was in a very dodgy part of Palermo. We tried to stay out the whole night to not go back.The staff were lazy and didnt bother showing us around at all. Was scared to use the bathroom.

    I booked to stay here and they were too lazy to respond to my FOUR emails requesting directions to their hostel until FOUR DAYS LATER when I informed them I would be cancelling the booking. They immediately responded by saying their email wasn't working. Pathetic excuse! They were just too lazy!! I recommend you stay at 'Eco Hostel' instead! The hostel is clean, provides a good breakfast and the staff are helpful. Hostelworld 'support' need to 'up' their game also.
