Agora Hostel is in the heart of Catania, directly in front of ancient Roman ruins in the area of the 'Pescheria' (the historical and folkloristic fish market) and a few steps from Piazza Duomo (the cathedral of Saint Agatha) and the central Via Etnea...and one of the oldest rivers in Catania passes right underneath the hostel in a cave formed 300 years ago by an eruption of Mount Etna, our nearby volcano!!!
The hostel bar is famous and fills up every night with locals and tourists. Ask at the reception for the 'Happy Hour' drink card: 2 drinks for 1 from 5pm-10pm everyday. With the 'Happy Food' offer, choose 1 of several dishes and a drink for just 6 euro.
The hostel is close to the main bus stops for Siracusa, Noto, Ragusa, Agrigento, Piazza Armerina, Palermo, the airport and La Playa (the beach). A short 15 minute walk takes you to the central train & bus station for transport to Mount Etna and Taormina and long distance trains to Rome, Naples and Milan.
And don't forget our international phone: pay on average 10 cents a minute to call home!
