some("I had a great time at On the Way Hostel! Alexandra is the best host ever! She’s so full of energy! If you like to party she will not let you down! The work itself is very light and you have most of the day free to do whatever you want. Palermo is lovely and there’s a Lidl right across the street from the hostel! You might not like it at first sight but give it a few days to fall in love! Thank you Alexandra!!! ")
