As soon as I arrived in Palermo, I heard someone call out my name as I was getting off the train, which is odd, considering I'd never been there in my life! It turned out to be the Your Hostel's owner, Giuseppe, which was a kindness I could never had expected. It turns out, I'd written a small note in my reservation telling them I'd be in late, close to midnight. Giuseppe took the liberty of picking me up at the station to make sure I'd be able to walk safely and find the hostel. This really set the tone of my stay in Palermo and made it an unforgettable one. I only had that one night and the next morning to see Palermo, and after we'd checked my bags into the room, he invited me and a fellow hostel stayer to dinner and drinks. I had no idea Palermo had such a night life, and I had no idea that I would have been given the gift of a personal touch on Palermo when I booked with Your Hostel. The next morning, I wanted to look around the city before my flight back home, and Giuseppe's kindness came through again. He lent me his bicycle to explore the city which gave me the chance to see way more than I had ever would have thought since my ankles were reeling from the two weeks I had already spent in Europe. I know he is a man of great character and he's probably equally friendly to all of his customers, but I really feel I made a friend that day, and I look forwarding to visiting him again in the future. The accommodations are top notch, with comfortable beds, clean sheets, super clean showers/bathrooms, and several welcoming common rooms. Feel confident booking here; you won't regret it!
