It is a very good hostel. Awesome staff and location. Great value for money
cheap! worth the price for a one night stay. good location and met some cool peeps. the mixed dorm is dirty and cramped, though. no biggie, the city was fun.
Lovely and helpful staff! and nice offers at bar and restaurant for hostel guests
Great location in the city. Dorms werereall cramped. The common area was real chill. The kitchen had just been installed so its great for cookjng your own meals woth the food you buy in th street market right outside the hostel.
Only here for one night. There are too many beds in the dorms and very very little space. Common areas are also small and were crowded. Bathrooms clean enough. Staff are great! Really friendly and helpful. Good vibe for solo travellers to meet others. The bar next door that is run by the hostel is great. Overall good.. But could be more comfortable
nice hostel and helpfull staf! great,great,great location!!!
The girls from the staff are really nice, helpful and speak good English. The location is right next to the street market and very close to the bus station and the main sights. However, the bunk beds are really small and the rooms are not spacey enough to accomodate 12 people. The kitchen is well equipped though if you´d like to cook your own meal. Also, this is a youth hostel with a lot of young people around, so don´t expect to get much comfortable sleep. The value for money is great though.
Good place all in all but if I wasn't dead knock tired, I would have struggled to sleep with all the noise from the outside. The room (we had a double private) was ok at night and got quite stuffy by the morning, can't imagine how hot it can be in summer O_o Doors and locks are very loud lol as they are old and you need to be careful not to rattle the keys too much as I didn't want to disturb anyone (imagine next door neighbours had the same pleasure of hearing the bar party).
This as my first time travelling alone and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at he hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the staff in the bar next door were also helpful. I extended my stay at the hostel for a few more days than I intended as it was in a good location and good value for money.

A éviter, un hôtel où c'est impossible de dormir la nuit car bruit de musique et discussions de personnes toute la nuit jusqu'à l'aube (et toutes les nuits de la semaine), seule possibilité : dormir le jour où prendre des somnifères.
Very nice hostel with excellent atmosphere and location.
Not so easy to find from Catania centrale, but location almost in Plaza Duomo
The greatest advantage of Agora Hostel, beyond its location, is the atmosphere. The staff was incredibly nice and natural. Moreover, cleanliness and general conditions were much better than expected. Highly recommended.
Had an awesome time, friendly people and staff! Security would stay at the front door to make sure no one random would go up.
The hostel staff was very kind and friendly. Their bar is one of the most popular in Catania. Its only a short 5 minute walk to the heart of the city. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone coming to Catania, its good value for your money. But if you're not in Catania to party and have a good time you may have trouble going to sleep early as the hostel bar closes pretty late at night, but that was no problem for me.
Located on the best place of Sicily, the bar next to the hostel is probably THE spot to be on any day of the week. The staff is extremely helpful and exceeded my expectations. Thanks for making my stay the best!
The place was disgusting, the bathroom was awful, cold water on the last day, stains everywhere, bad smells. I felt dirtier after showering. I even kept my flip flops on to get into ghe shower. The place would be bearable for one night if you have nowhere else to go, but that's it. It is hot as hell in the dorm, and the fans are not working properly. The staff was ok. I've been to many hostels and this one is the worst. It's not expensive at all, but for the same price you can get way better!
