If your ad will appear on the doors of the hostel at the beginning of the school year – the chances of selling the piano is quite high.
Note
If your piano is in poor condition, and find a buyer you don't succeed, try selling it "for parts" (they always need the Adjusters and repairer of musical instruments).
