“A very clean hostel, good location. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

On the way hostel is one of the cleanest hostel I have ever visited. I guess it is because the hostel has just opened recently. And the staff is very diligent in maintaining the cleaniness of the hostel.

The location of the hostel is also pretty good. It takes around 5~10minutes walking distance from Palermo Centrale Station. But the lift of the building doesn't really work, so my friend and I needed to carry two luggages by stairs. Very exhausting.

There are three bathrooms in the hostel and I like the design of them. Also, there are some balconies in the hostel with tables and chairs. It is a great place to enjoy breakfast and the street view from those little balconies.

Breakfast is also included in the hostel fee. I quite like the breakfast. It tastes good:)

One recommendation is to visit the Mounir Pizzerria. It is just around the corner. There you can find the best pizza in the world.

This is a quaint and very new hostel. The staff/owners are very warm and hospitable. All the main furniture is made by the very nice young lady, as well as the food for breakfast (Which is included). The bunks are well spaced, and their matrices and bedding are new, comfortable and warm. The rooms stay dark well into the morning when the shutters are closed. The showers are nice and hot, with consistent pressure. The wifi is strong in all rooms, and even present in the cafe/pizzeria on the corner of the street (directly below). The recreation room is quite nice, customized as well. There is a tv, DVD player, and plenty of books in different languages. Complimentary tea and coffee is available at all times. They offer a laundry service (which is a take out service) for approximately €3 per kilo, and is washed, dried and ironed.
The walk to the hostel from the train station is pretty straight forward (5minutes). It would be nice if there were a couple of additional power points in the dorm rooms and the recreation room. They do offer small personal reading lights for a €10 deposit, which you get back upon return. And rent out an iPad.
I feel that they really need to get some decent sized lockers. The lockers that they have are really only large enough for a small backpack and maybe a few very important items. They do tell you that you can leave important things with them (€5 deposit for the safe), and the hostel it's self is very secure and no one can just walk in off the street. But you can never feel too secure when it comes to your suitcase/backpack.
Because of how new this hostel is, they were still working out a few things and getting supplies and items for the hostel, but I am sure that soon enough any little problems or things lacking will be sorted out. This being one of the first reviews will give them the very few pointers to help make this place fantastically awesome. I highly recommend it to any one wanting a great location, value for money, and after a really friendly (almost family) vibe!!!
