An extremely good hostel. I particularly liked the privacy and the quietness. A great view from the roof top and from the room. I suggest that breakfast could be improved by adding fruit and muesli (rolled oats).


The place is one of the best, which I have stayed. Definitely recommended. The staff wait for me, the check in was for 3 minutes very nice, the owner gave me keys and everything was very ok. Clean and very comfortable temperature, the room was spacious with big and nice balcony, The only thing which I didn't like is the bed. The quilt was ok, but the bed is old and not good. If they change the beds, or just put the quilt at the floor maybe better.


Conveniently located next to several restaurants and a short walk to the centre, with a balcony toward the castello. The breakfast was particularly basic and unpresented. Kitchen facilities are inadequate if you have plans to prepare your meals.


Grazie mille


Very kind and helpful staff, beautiful room with en-suite bathroom.


A great, clean, very well located place to stay with a beautiful view of Castello Ursino from the balcony of each room, plus an amazing terrace with a better view than many of the city vantage points you have to pay for to experience. One annoying bit is that Wi-Fi coverage does not extend to the rooms, so you have to drag a chair into the kitchen or outside of the flat and search around a bit. If you don't mind that, you'll have a lovely, affordable stay.


the B&B is just a few steps from the castle! we parked our car under our balcony. and the roof balcony! it is great! we stayed only 1night, but in this room we could stay longer and just enjoy and soak up the sicily itself :) you really get the taste of sicili - nightlife, restaurants, the wonderfull views from the rooftop (you can have your breakfast or cofe here and it is great)! the sir who took care of us was very friendly, nice and very helpfull!


Dat air conditioning. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm If you like cool air, this is the place for you.


Very good conditions and very nice staff.

Really good location. Friendly host. Nice room and balcony with a nice view of the castle. The only remark we have is that the WiFi does not work well in the room. In the hallway, it works well :-) All of the other facilities were present and worked well (like air conditioning etc.) Highly recommendable!!!


very bad atmosphere very bad staff, no speaking English , no good communication no hospitalty


Nice non-turistic neighborhood. Nice terrace on top with a great view, nice cats and nice owners!


The owner was friendly, and the rooms clean. There was a problem with the watter for the toilet- it just stopped and the toilet could not be flushed. We only stayed 1 night and this problem was never fixed while we were there. On the other hand the location is great, there is a great restaurand next to the b&b and the BIG PLUS is that this place had wi-fi ( in Italy there is a big problem with wi-fi availability).

no wifi in room a shame!


Well located, spacious rooms with great views. I was leaving early in the morning (around 8), which they assure me was not a problem. But they did not bring me my breakfast. Also, the hotel does not feel convivial at all. Most of the resident are families.
