Wonderful experience. First time staying at a hostel. It was clean, friendly, and safe. I was worried about lockers, but they are huge and right next to your bunk. The first staff member who I talked to was clueless and kinda rude (Elisia?) but then later that night the guy at reception was the best ever. Found me a Mt. Etna tour last minute, was super friendly, and offered lots of great information! Location is prime and the restaurant is awesome. Highly recommend staying here.

It was a very nice time in the hostel. The staff is very helpful. You can ask them about program, bus or train timetable etc. The location is very central, the market is on the corner :)

A good deal for a short stay in Catania. It would be much better if the breakfast is plenty of choice and more utensils are available for cooking, such as kettle, microwave etc

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...
