My experience in Palermo has been amazing! It’s a gorgeous city, the best food and a very warm summer!\nFran is such a nice, kind man, super flexible with times and shifts (he would always change it if you need).\nThe work is super easy, chilled, make beds, keep it clean and tidy, check in check out, he’ll teach you everything you need to know. He can teach you italian if you wish!\nI had a very good time! I highly recommend it!\n:)

About the host

We are a small, cozy and friendly hostel in the center of Palermo. A great city full of culture, architecture, good food and night life. Sorrounding us, you will find plenty of Amazing Scicilian cities to visit, temples, beaches, smooth weather almost all year long and interesting people. We love to share our culture and way of life, and thats why everyone that comes to Sunshine Hostel feels like at home. We hope to see you here.
