Good enough
The hostel is in a very convenient location, right by Arcos, an outlet shopping mall. It’s not the nicest hostel, it’s not the worst hostel. Somewhere in the middle. Everything is rather outdated, but it serves its purpose.

Stayed in other hostels that had bed bugs and creepy clientele. This one was very nice, friendly. Nice public areas and clean rooms. Nice bathrooms. Excellent deal.

So I left a detailed review earlier and liked my experience and would stay here again. Just make sure the shower works well a s I would ask them to not disturb you to clean the room. They come by in the afternoon about 2pm, I kinda used it as my alarm because I was sleeping most of the morning.

So I picked this place because I was able to get a single double bed with a private bathroom, near Palermo ( it's in Palermo but about 18 minute walk from where the action is), for 7 days in November for 200usd. I stayed in 2 different rooms. The first was room 14. At the top of the 2nd floor with a window facing the court yard. It was noisy but this is a hostel, so bring some ear plugs. It was small just big enough for a double bed. The bed was comfortable. The shower was broken and had terrible water pressure. Not what I was hoping for after 12 hour flight. The 2nd room I had was number 9. It is much larger, has slot of room to move around and a little terrace. The bad part is that it's right off the main 2nd floor sitting area and it sounds like people are talking in your bed room. You will need ear plugs especially if you decide to sleep in. Over all I'm fairly happy and would stay here again.
