The Youth Hostel Baia del Corallo in Palermo is part of the Hostelling International association of Hostels in Italy.
Palermo, the light-coloured houses, the illuminated trees like swarms of fireflies: this was Goethe's impression, trying to decribe a city that fills travellers eyes.
When the look can wander from a wonderful gulf to the mountains, from superb palaces to rare monuments, when the spectacle of nature merges with architecture, travellers eyes stop judging, just observe. A city that just for its colours, climate and scents was loved indistinctly by Phoenicians, Normans, Romans and Arabs.
Going out of the hostel, there are many possible itineraries, almost infinite. You can walk to 'Piazza Vigliena', also named 'The Sun Theatre', reaching in a short time to 'Cassaro', as the Arabs called the most ancient fortification of the city. Few further steps and you can find the Norman Palace and Cathedral, real architectural jewels.
The reception is open for check in from 8.00 to 10.a.m. and from 15.00 to 23.00 Please if you think to arrive after 22.00 o'clock tell us previously

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
However it was good hostel, except location. When i go by bus 628 to this hotel, bus drivers didn't know, where it is, and even finaly, when i reach that last stop, i really didn't know where to go. There wasn't numbers on the houses and really didn't find the reference to this hotel.
However hostel is on the bank of the sea
