This has been the best hostel I've stayed in. It is a very community-based atmosphere and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I was traveling alone and as a woman I felt very safe staying here in the 8-bed woman's dorm. Rooms/beds are clean with large lockers. Woman's community bathroom clean, towels provided, free tea and coffee anytime, free breakfast (later in the morning if you don't want an early start to your day). If you have a chance, take the Etna Excursion Tour- it is great!!

The hostel is very clean, the staff is really friendly, the atmosphere is amazing, indeed I really enjoyed my stay there.
The hostel is clean, the atmosphere is nice and the breakfast is great. The volunteers working there are super cool, friendly and fun, thank you! The only negative is the beds, they are way too soft and makes a terrible noise every time you turn around or move at all.
Hostel off the main road with key card access and huge lockers. Located within 5 minutes walk of most sites. Staff is a mixture of owners and volunteers, and all are fantastically helpful: The woman (very friendly) actually sat down with me and my map to plan my visit. All rooms, reception, kitchen and common area in close quarters so everyone is closely involved for good atmosphere. Cleaned every day, with full kitchen and shower facilities. Can't fault it. Very difficult to leave in fact.
Hostel is small and quiet to relax in. Full kitchen and free breakfast, friendly staff. Not enough power points in the rooms though; only one socket in an 8 bed room. Good place to chill out in Catania, especially close to the train station and port.
Very helpfull and friendly staff. Location is perfect to explore the East coast of Sicily.
Overall nice place. However, it felt like some of the staff were not very happy...which could make you feel a bit uncomfortable.
Gianni house, what a time! I highly suggest staying here, it's worth every penny. The staff, aside from just being helpful and nice were some of the funniest, coolest (Becky I'm looking at you) people ever. The hostel is clean, with all the amenities you could need. Perfect location and lots of good advice on what to do in and around Catania!
Good location, great kitchen, lovely view. Generally I had a good stay however the two young girls they have living and working there gave the place an unfriendly atmosphere. Any communication was punctuated by sighs and eye rolling and the only times they attempted to be pleasant was when the manager was there to watch. I wouldn't employ either of them. Young English guy was lovely and helpful though.
A decent hostel which is actually rather close to the bus/train stations. However, the lack of proper road signage in Catania makes whatever directions stated on the website virtually useless - I ended up taking over 1 hour to get to the hostel despite it being less than 500m from the bus station. Nevertheless, clean shower facilities, rooms with individual lockers, and generous breakfast spread.
Marvellous all round. Very friendly welcome from accommodating and friendly staff. Invited to join in dinner and drinks with guests.. a real warm welcome to Catania. Hostel facilities were excellent too. Highly recommended. Thank you C.C.Ly staff

Very good location nearby train and central bus station. Nice kitchen and sufficient facitities.
I just had a spledid time! Amazing staff, a tasty wine party and tons of useful information. Warmly recommended!
Only had a brief stay but the staff were lovely and so helpful, enthusiastically providing us with a map and highlighting the best spots around town.
There are too many great things to say and not enough characters. This place has a warm family feel which is provided by the amazingly hardworking multilingual staff. The views mt Etna are phenomenal, the facilities are modern and colourful with a kitchen full of gizmos to use. It's within walking distance to all main sites, shopping streets and the station and finally the atmosphere is fantastic with great common areas to sit and meet fellow travellers. Would definitely return just to stay.
It was nice to stay C.C.Ly! close to station and main street, frienly staff,and clean bed. But there are lot of dust in the room that is onlything i dont like
This was one of the best hostels I have stayed in in my whole time of traveling! The hostel was so clean and the staff was amazing. Thank you for a great stay! -Natalie
Hands down my favourite hostel in five months of travel. Awesome staff, good atmosphere, really clean, great breakfast and it just feels so homely. I wish I could have stayed for longer!
great hostel, very colourful-each room is coloured in a different colour scheme. great idea. we liked it so much, atmosphere was great. Hostel not far from the center 10 minute walk and around 25 minutes walk from the harbour. Hostel people speak english. keep it up guys from us you get a 100% so full marks :)
