The rooms and bathrooms were extremely dirty, including bed bugs in the beds, blood in the sheets and an awful smell from the moment you walk into the place. In the triple room, the private bathroom was so small it had the shower over the toilet. After the first night, we woke up covered in bed bug bites. We changed rooms and had to request for clean sheets, since they had blood and actual dirt on them.
The staff tried to charge us more than what we had agreed, allegedly because there was a 10% charge on the use of credit/debit cards, which wasn’t specified anywhere on Booking or the confirmation notification we’d received via email. They were also extremely rude. A member of the staff yelled at us to clean up after ourselves after breakfast. There was a tiny sign we hadn’t seen that read that people should wash even the mugs after breakfast. We complained to them about everything that was going on and we didn’t even get an apology.

We booked for 3 nights in advanced and leaved without even staying one night. The room is dirty, has bad smell, no window, no facilities, the toilet is inside the shower.
When we asked to leave the boss avoided-refused seeing or taking with us. Got no refund no nothing.

The Palermo Soho Hostel was not what we expected. On booking.com the rooms and bathrooms seemed spacious and clean, but in reality they are quite the opposite. We found old cigarette ashes in the drawers, chewed up floor boards (see pictures below) and even saw a cockroach scuttling past our feet! We paid 67 US$ per night for a room for the 4 of us which is faaaar too much. That room is worth max 45 US $. I'm sure one can find a better place way cheaper. On the bright side though, the staff were friendly, and most of them could speak english. The location is also good; in the middle of an arty suburb with a metro station an easy walk away. The breakfast is ok but I wouldn't recommend this place for a lengthy stay, only a 1 or 2 night stay.

As all below, staff were crap. (Except one guy who helped us put our luggage away safely on our departure day so we could go out & come back later) They were rude & unhelpful. Rooms are tiny & cramped. Bathroom disgusting & used by too many people. Kitchen was useless, oven was broken. It's location is great. Palermo is beautiful, but I wouldn't stay here again or recommend it. General atmosphere wasn't like normal "backpacking" hostels, felt like we were intruding in someones house.

We stayed at the hostel for two nights and the prices are reasonable. Rooms are very small and ugly, but do have air conditioning (controlled by staff). The staff however was quite rude and did not seem happy to answer any of the questions we had. No help with small questions like restaurants. Rooms are very noisy. Choose another hostel!
