Found this a great and economical place to stay for two nights in Palermo, paid 60 euro per night. Easy to find - just ask the driver of the bus from the airport (£3) to stop at Piazza Politeama and it is a quick 5 min walk up Via Dante. Massive room, shared bathroom with 3 other rooms but very clean in all respects. Run by a lady called Lorenzo who was great, very friendly and gave us a lovely basic breakfast every morning. Great location - taxi stand 5min, Teatro Massimo 10min walk, and easy bus ride (no 182) to Piazza Independencia for buses to catacombs and Monreale, and for buses to central station (about 1 30min walk). Close walk to a few reasonable looking restauarants but ended up shopping in local markets and eating back at room both nights - try the boiled artichoke hearts !! In terms of value for money easily the best place I have stayed in Italy. Clean and friendly and fairly central.
