    My partner and I stayed at On the Way hostel for one night in a private room. The hostel was clean, in a good location and inviting. The only issues we could see were that our room didn’t have air conditioning, the bed was hard and the room was quite noisy. Otherwise a good hostel for back packing. Thanks for our stay On the Way.

    Literally the ONLY problem is that you have to be the first one to shower, otherwise you have to wait for hot water or take a very cold shower. But it was amazingly clean and organized, staff was helpful and it’s very well located. There’s ok WiFi and the breakfast was simple but nice too. Overall a very good hostel.

    The hostel is in a great location and next to the Supermarket, which is helpful due to the fact that it is located to the main street. So the room is really noise! The breakfast ist awesome with fresh brewed coffee, fruits, diverse cereals.. The rooms were missing opportunities to hang out stuff.. We had a great time!

    We had high hopes for this place- seemed very cute, great location. However a day before we arrived, we found out that our room had been cancelled so we had to find another hostel. Although they offered to transfer us elsewhere, we had to quickly book new arrangements to ensure a place to stay. We never got our deposit back. We even went to the hostel to see staff about the confusion and no one showed up to the front desk for 10-15 min so we just left. Wish it was a better experience.

    The hostel seems to be rather new. The interior equipment and decoration is very modest. Half of the rooms are quite noisy due to the major traffic street "via di Rome". The location of the hostel in Palermo is good.

    Do not stay here if you need quiet to sleep - this hostel is right above a main road and windows need to be kept open because they don't have air conditioning. Also, the staff didn't exactly seem like they cared about your experience. Great location though, only 5 minutes from the train station and airport bus pick up / drop off location.

    Only go there if you have no other option. It’s bearable for one night but go else where of you can: Check in was chaotic, first they even didn’t know we were coming. The staff at the reception on our arrival didn’t speak English. We were charged the city-tax again even thought hostleworld had stated that the tax is already be included in the total price of our stay. There was no toilet paper available. In the shower there was almost no hot water 🥶. Disappointing breakfast.

    Do not stay here! The staff are unwelcoming and made me feel very unwanted. When you have a shower it floods the hallway. When I was there, this happened and I couldn’t get past because there was so much water. The toilets are EXTREMELY unhygienic. There is a sign saying ‘no toilet paper in the toilet’ meaning once you’ve done your business you must put the used toilet paper in a bag next to the toilet. Yes it did smell. Very noisy at night but only good thing was the bed was comfy enough.
