The hostel was fairly clean and basic. I was dissapointed that breakfast was not included. The bungalows need to be cleabed on the outside, the broken and rusty chairs and equipment need replacing. The bed sheets were torn and the communal area also need to be kept clean. The hostel generally needs to be improved by renovations.

The view across the bay, from our balcony, was breathtaking. Only about 1 minute to swim in the beautiful clear sea! Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Nearby Sferracavallo is a very pleasant small town, a short walk away, with excellent restaurants and bars
