    I've been to a lot of hostels around Europe and I swear this one tops all! The staff was super friendly and helpful at all times while creating a very relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. I really felt at home and welcomed. The location is superb as the hostel is in the old historic center of Palermo, surrounded by sights, and very close to the sea!

    4 nights was not enough in Palermo, Italy at the Sunshine Hostel. The location, I later learned through exploring, is PRIME! There is so much to do in Palermo and it's all near the hostel! Agustina, Carolina and Ricardo made my visit memorable with recommendations that helped me explore the city and they made sure I was included whenever there was a group event.. 5 STARS to the staff, cleanliness, comfort, kitchen, and location! This hostel will always be my first choice when visiting Palermo!!

    I had the best experience in Palermo because of this hostel! Friendly staff and friendly owner. I would highly recommend the value for money is good and it is right in the centre of everything, and if there is somewhere you like to go the bus pulls up literally outside the hostel or the train station is a five minute walk. Good place to meet people! There is a roof top terrace which is amazing for the sunset especially if you are into photography, though it does need deck chairs and a table.

    Dorm room was small and can get squeezy with everyone's luggage and backpacks on the floor. Only two bathrooms/toilets for entire hostel. Breakfast was basic. Overall an okay stay. They charge you if you need to keep your backpack after check out.

    This hostel is very basic- only two bathrooms for the whole hostel, the common space is small and cramped. The bunks are very simple, limited lockers and the room felt very hot with just a fan. Although I paid for the room I didn’t end up staying as there were just too many things that weren’t right especially in today’s Covid environment. I went back and re read the reviews maybe in more social times there is a vibe- but for me hostels have moved on from this real basic type.

    In truth I couldn't even stay at this place because of an alleged booking error. (On whose part? The computer's?) But I can review the other place I was sent to. No atmosphere. Asocial staff that wanted little or nothing to do with guests. Barely any facility to speak of (one burner for an entire hostel to share, three single bathrooms; one with a busted lock). Breakfast hardly worth waking up for. No lockers; mere drawers. Best of all: not enough keys for guests. People remained stuck outside.

    Dirty facilities, bad standard, dirty clogged showers, no shower head holder, no lockers, no lock on doors, so anyone can walk in, ok location, bad management. Ok staff, but even they were complaining about the hostel and their boss.
