Really comfortable place, clean and the view was amazing. The only problem is the breakfast, they say it's include but the put milk and a few cakes in the kitchen every day, but for the price it's ok, you can have breakfast outside which is cheap anyway because is Italy. Everything is a walking distance and they have AC, which I love it .......specially for the summer in Sicily. The shower needs more potency, but I managed any way..

Towels hadn't been changed during our six-day stay. Paying by credit card is impossible. Breakfast was every day same - one croissant and packed juice.

Great location good value for money the only criticism I have is they should more cutlery and a kettle to boil water No one should complain about breakfast or the lack there off What do you expect for such a reasonable tariff Ron Ontario Canada

The staff is really friendly and the location is perfect. The rooms are big and clean, but there is just one bathroom for the entire floor. The breakfast is poor.

Location is truly awful. It's located in an area crawling with dark alleys, street gangs and prostitutes. It is at best a 30 minute walk to the train station through some unsavoury areas. The owner didn't have our booking reference. We stayed for 3 nights and the shower head was broken with no hot water and no toilet roll. B and B without the breakfast. If you are female don't stay here and also male for that matter. It's horrendous. Won't be back.

Very friendly landlord who provided 2 more single beds to accommodate our 2y old baby. Don't expect a traditional breakfast, is offered a very limited one. Big terrace accessible at the top of the building with a nice view over Catania. Spacious room. Private bathroom cleaned daily. Bad WiFi reception. Location connected to the beach and to the rail station by public transport that unfortunately doesn't work so well... likely the bus drivers compensate with their kindness towards the tourists!!

Very kind staff, beautiful place, nice room. The only drawback was the non-existant breakfast, which consists of coffee you have to make yourself (which is ok), but then there were no promissed croissants. Anyway, it`s a beautiful flat I recommend to everyone.

It was really great experience to stay in this B&B. I liked its central location and also the owners are so kind and helpful! :) They gave us free map and they explain the main sights to us :) They are so helpful, maybe the unique problem could be that they don't speak english.

Sveva hostel was a great experience in catania! Excellent location, when walk to the Duomo you are able to find food markets and restaurants. Our room had a beautiful balcony and roof top terrace. The staff was amazing and have us great pointers to anything that we were interested in! I would go back specifically for the staff!

It was a little confusing the reception being all the way at the top of the building. However, the hostel was clean and tidy and our room was lovely.

- At first hard to find! We almost walked by the litte green sign. - You're very independent: you get a key for the frontdoor so you can get in amy time. - Nice and very kind people, but they speak almost no English - Good location and nice view over the castle - There is wifi in the hall, but not in the rooms - very small breakfast (to a Dutch person)

the rooms were tidy and comfortable, but only one bathroom for the whole appartment made it quite difficult. Furthermore, the breakfast was disappointend and the owner didn't speak english.
