    The staff and guests were very friendly and helpful and I had a great time getting to know everyone. As someone traveling alone in Palermo, this hostel was the ideal place to stay as it has a fun and youthful atmosphere and was run by a lovely staff who were always eager to help. The breakfast in the morning was pretty decent and the location of the hostel is ideal as it’s only five minutes away from the train/bus station as well as the historical city center. One of my best hostel experiences.

    This was such a fun place to stay! The beds were nice, there were plenty of plugs, the staff were so kind and fun. I had mild heat exhaustion while I was here, and the staff helped me get everything I needed. The kitchen is well stocked, and the free breakfast is wonderful. The showers were a little weird, but other than that everything was lovely. I would 100% stay here again.

    Nice. Good central location and also not far from the station. Staff were pleasant and very understanding. Toilets and showers were a bit old and dirty but nothing major. Overall, a good place to stay while in Palermo. Liked the free breakfast too 💕😊

    the hostel is really center, just next to the main busy road in town. THe facilities are old and chaotic. The showers are not locked and do not work well, bit dirty, old. There is not a good toilet/shower to use in the whole hostel. Staff are really helpful, welcoming and really nice indeed. Kitchen could be cleaner. Overall and ok experience but awkward toilet and shower services.

    Handy to railway but very noisy street location. Nice staff but it’s such an old building. Not as cheery as the photos . Just old and tired and hard to clean . Bathrooms and toilets pretty creepy.

    I will try and be fair. The place was one of the worst hostels I’ve stayed in. The floor in my dorm was dirty. The blankets stunk. The toilet was broken. The shower was broken. The staff didn’t want to be there. The kitchen was horrible with no microwave. There was zero atmosphere. It was noisy at night. It was cold at night. No hot water in the sinks. The only positive was the location. Arguably not worth the cost of a nights stay.
