100% recommended! INCREDIBLE staff, so helpful! Everything about Agora is great (save for the paltry breakfast). I previously stayed in Ostello Degli Elefanti in Catania (which is a 2 minute walk across the Piazza Duomo to Agora), and I have to say that Agora takes the win. The space heater in the room was a game-changer. Very cozy! The hostel feels busy/loud because of its restaurant/bar, but I slept really well. There's also an underground wine bar in a CAVE, which, uh, how cool is that?!?!?!!

Even though they are the cheapest, I gladly pay those 2 extra euro's for not sleeping above a bar with really poor facilities and staff who seem to be too busy with working on other stuff rather than taking care of the hostel and guest. Except for the nice happy hour discount at that same bar they claim you can get very cheap food but €7 for a Pizza magharita and a coke isn't actually cheap... just sayin...

I should say that I was in the bedroom upper the restaurant and actually it is very very noisy the night. That's a bad point if you can't sleep with noise.

Worst place I've ever slept. Noise, hot, dirty... Location is the only good thing.

It was a terrible experience to stay there. The staff were ok and answered our questions patiently but that couldn't make up for the fact that the bar next door plays music all night until at least two am! It's impossible to sleep before the crowd and music faded away. And I think their facilities are poorly maintained and unclean. Disappointed! Worst hostel in Italy!
