“Great location and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here mid March 2013 and delighted with our stay. Very clean, nice kitchen and common rooms, plus lovely roof terrece. Family run hostel. Owner is best bit. Real helpful and caring. Basic accommodatio but well worth it for price. Good mattresses. Pillows could be better.

A great value for money. The rooms are spacious and clean, equipt with AC and balconies. There is an elevator and a big rooftop terrace. Location is perfect, very central and just a few minutes walk from Vucciria, the center of night life. It's easy to meet people in the hostel to go with. The staff is very nice and helpful and will happily answer all your questions.

Arrived in Palermo from Tunis absolutely exhausted from a horrible ferry crossing. Giuseppe was expecting me, and did everything he could to make my time in Palermo awesome.

Personal touches like dinners groups out to local restaurants and communal cheap dinners on the rooftop, detailed instructions on how to get places and a smile every time you ask yet another silly question that they've heard 1000 times makes this hostel amazing.

The bathroom situation isn't the best ever but it certainly made no impact on my stay. Will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Sicily, can't recommend it enough! Thank you!

My friends and I (4 people total) have spent 3 days in Palermo this summer, and we stayed at Your Hostel. Incredible position (so close to the city center) and wonderful atmosphere.
Giuseppe and Walter made us feel at home: one night they cooked for all the guest (for 1€ !!) on the lovely terrace, and the other night they brought us to a bizzare restaurant just in front of the sea: this was definetely a place you could not find if you are not a local.
We slept in a 6 beds room and it was pretty clean, with AC.
Common areas are small but well organized. The only cons regards the toilets: they are clean but there's just 1 of them on each floor (but they said they'll add some new ones, soon).
Definitely worth a visit: low price, nice spot, wonderful atmosphere!

Nice staff and location, but only 1 toilet per floor, which also encloses the shower is not nearly sufficient. Could be designed better! Had to wait several times to use the toilet, and there were no other toilets available in the whole building. Quite a noisy street outside.

The hostel was initially hard to find due to poor signage. But in great location. The host was very helpful and spoke english. They did our laundry for us-wash n dry for E5- great value. The rooms are clean. They may need to fix the shower problem as people didn't know how to shower with the curtains in the bath and resulted in a very wet bathroom every time!! But all in all, nice hostel to stay at.

Your Hostel was a last stop on our tour of Sicily and out of all the hostels we stayed in definitely exceeded and pleased our expectations. Central, fresh, clean, quiet and well equiped (lift, kitchen, Wi-fi, cards accepted) which makes it a good point to explore Palermo. Friendly and helpful staff with good tips on sites, traffic and food. Unbeatable prices. Definitely recommended! Grazie da Bogota ;)
