    Great vibe, friendly people. But quite cold in winter. No power sockets near bed.

    I was there for a total of two nights. While the place overall is quite nice, it’s pretty far from a lot of attractions so you have to catch a bus or a taxi across town. And also the free breakfast does not exists at all. Overall it was good but probably wouldn’t stay there for more than 2 nights.

    Not sure why this hostel isn't rated higher. It's centrally located in Palermo Soho near tons of food, drink, parks, the metro...the list goes on. Helpful staff and plenty of common areas to hang in including a nice roof terrace. It's also by far the cheapest place I could find in this location. The hostel is a little on the older side but I liked the charm that that added. My private room was clean and in good shape and a good size too. Can't comment on dorms really.

    Staff are friendly. We only got there at 1am and checked out the next day so maybe we missed something but pretty sure the free breakfast as stated on here does not exist. Beds are comfy, bathrooms clean, kitchen grungy but fine. Overall very good value but might not be your favourite place for a long term stay.

    The kitchen was useful if you chose to save some money and cook yourselves. Outdoor area is nice when just chilling at the hostel. Room was below average due to continued flooding in the bathroom due to shower not draining. Lots of mould due to little to none ventilation. In the room one half was always wet for some reason, couldn’t figure out why. Paddles under the bed. Beds where comfy for what you pay. Wifi was fine. Also no free breakfast as stated just coffee and tea!

    We stayed here for 1 night in a private twin room with shared bathroom. The bedroom was fine although the mattresses were uncomfortable. The bathrooms, however, were disgusting. The toilet on our floor was blocked, the floor was filthy and the bathroom had obviously not been cleaned for some time. The toilet on the floor below was also blocked. It was cheaper than some other hostels in the area but I would not stay here again.

    If you looking for a hostel with good facilities, friendly staff and nice atmosphere, go look somewhere ELSE! won't get it here! It's cheap and at an ok location that's about it, I found another one in the same area for about the same price. The building has potential but needs major renovations, the staff are not friendly, helped when asked but nothing more than that, there are people living there so it kills the atmosphere, the kitchen is dirty and over used, not even a glass to drink water.
