There is no such thing as Eurail. Eurail is not a train operator anywhere in Europe; it is purely a ticketing agency which sells (imo) over-priced passes.

The Italian railway operator is Trenitalia. Other European countries have their own railway operators.

I know of no hostels personally, but whilst you are waiting for personal recommendations I suggest you look at www.hostelworld.com and www.hostelbookers.com Both sites have reliable reviews and mapping.

An alternative is www.venere.com Although primarily for hotels (listing almost all of those in Italy) it also lists some hostels and b&bs. Venere is a reliable site with honest guest reviews and good mapping.

I find the Trip Advisor web site useful as it lists many accommodations by price as well as location. You can use the map and see which place is most convenient. There are over 100 B&Bs listed for Palermo

Of course not knowing your budget..... but I looked at one place that has good reviews - Novecento :
http://www.bed-breakfast-palermo.com/index-eng.html

but there are plenty of others on Trip Advisor and you can search for the web site of the establishment directly.

Re: hostel close to eurail station

The advantage of venere over tripadvisor is that reviews can only be posted after a guest has completed a stay booked through the site. Same applies to hostelworld and hostelbookers and booking.com

There is no such requirement for tripadvisor, so it is always best to ignore the best and worst reviews on that site and go with the majority view.

"There is no such requirement for tripadvisor, so it is always best to ignore the best and worst reviews on that site and go with the majority view."

You are quite correct. On Trip Advisor you do need to look twice and sometimes 3 times at the reviews. I did not look closely at the reviews for B&B NOVECENTO as mentioned above on Trip Advisor. I just looked at the web site for the establishment and it looks central and well managed.
However looking again at the Trip Advisor 'reviews' I can see that there have been 15 in all so far. With 14 giving an EXCELLENT mark and one giving a nearly excellent one ! All except one review is from someone who has not made any other contributions to Trip Advisor especially no other reviews. To my mind having 14 EXCELLENT from contributors whose only review is this establishment is not helpful.

And I cannot find the place on Venere.

So it is best to ignore my previous comment about B&B NOVECENTO.

Venere lists almost all Italian hotels but only a few hostels and b&bs, so it's not surprising you can't find it there.

Travel Tips for Palermo

Eccola qua! 8)

by kedi+

I'm climbing on the top of Duomo di Monreale.. There's a breathtaking view on the top. But it was early in the morning when we were there so it was a bit foggy and fog was preventing our sight... Anyway the panaroma was suberb..

Delizioso !

by Paisleypaul about Le delizie di Cagliostro

We were impressed by this trattoria one evening and came back another day for lunch - it wasn't just so good for lunch, so I recommend 'cena' (doesn't mean it was a let down, just as I say, not just as special) Nice bruscetta, 'fantasia di bruchetta' is an anitpasti with tomato based bruschetta, a fishy pasted one, and a peppery black olive pate. The proprietary 'house' antispasti Cagliostro and pasta Cagliostro were both a delight

Quattro Canti (the Four Corners) The City Center

by hquittner

This is nearly the center of tourist Palermo., and your walking tours can be centered here (as 2 of our Palermo Travelogs do). This is the intersection of the 2 main traffic streets. The edges of the 4 corners were flattened into facades in the 1610 period and named Piazza Vigliena for the Spanish Viceroy. The baroque fountains have statues of the seasons and various personages of symbolic and political significance (then). The traffic makes it dangerous to get vistas from here (as once were possible) This shot was taken from the N. doorway of the church S. Giuseppe dei Teatini which is next to one of the corner facades

Catacombs dei Cappuccini

by souk-dragon

"Surreal yet fascinating"

The Catacombs are located in Piazza Cappucini, not Via Cappucini as menioned in guide books, and they are easily walkable from Piazza Indipendanza. Entrance is 1.5 euros.
The bodies are arranged mainly in continuous rows and grouped according to profession and gender. I very quickly lost the reality of looking at corpses and, instead, found myself thinking how alike they looked in their best clothing and how well preserved they looked. Some even still had hair and eyelashes
I found the visit very surreal and a little unsettling - not because I was looking at "dead people" but because I was surrounded by tour groups. I was trying to remain respectful but people were shouting and laughing around me. There was even a souvenir stand outside! It seemed a bit of a circus compared to the peace and dignity of the adjacent cemetery where local people were quietly paying respects to relatives. Thankfully, photography is no longer allowed.
Although I felt uncomfortable, I have to admit I found the visit fascinating
