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!
Very nice stay. The bar closed to the hostel is pefect for the evening (nice music !)
