We stayed with our 4-month old baby in Catania and were received very warmly. Many thanks. Andreas


Really nice place to stay, we only stayed for a short night to sleep and catch an early flight but our room was clean, had really cute sheets, a sky window(!!!), a nice air con and we were provided two(!!!) fluffy towels. We had a private bedroom with shared bathroom but I never had to wait for a bathroom. There is also a lovely courtyard and terrace to chill out in and the wi-fi was strong. Highly recommended! Also the staff were very friendly and informative.


Had some problems to get there by bus but in fact it's located near the center. The staff was friendly and facilities always clean. Definitely a good choice.


We were only here for 1 night but I would definatly return!


Considering the amount of theft in Catania, they should have better security! People come in and come out really easy. The windows in the room were close to the ground level and anyone could jump in. Have this in mind when staying here! Very clean! Poor wifi. A bit hard to find. Staff not very insightful... maybe due to the overly fun vibe :)


lovely hostel, bright and colourful, a few minutes walk from centre square. breakfast was just croissant & drink from the place across the road - that could have been better. its pretty clean and nice place to hangout and use of kitchen. few different bathrooms to choose from to use. helpful staff as well.


Place was clean and close to everything. Staff left a little to be desired, they never went out of their way to show us the places to see but that's really my only complaint. Other than that, great stay!


Amazing hostel, highly recommended.


Good wifi, staff didn't help us very much with getting around or tips about the city. Also, the guy who checked us in didn't even give us a key to our room until the day we were leaving. No AC which is a bummer in Catania since there are so many mosquitoes in Catania.


Great location, friendly and helpful staff, very clean, large terrace and kitchen also.


We only stayed one night here mainly due to the fact that the city was very congested. This accommodation was great, funky kinda place air conditioning was fantastic however our room was really clean but the ceiling was quiet low depending on where you were standing in the room. It would be difficult to stay for a week without banging your head off the ceiling.

The was and friendly, room was a but small also ththe shower area but everything as new, clean n well maintained.


Nice hostel with a homely taste and good atmosphere! the owner is really helpful and the kitchen is well equipped.


The communication before arrival through emails was really poor and we were a bit upset about that as we did not know what to expect. But when we arrived it all went great and we were welcomed by a very friendly guy (unfortunately I don't remember his name). We booked a quadruple room what was beyond our expectation. Very clean and well furnished. I would definitely suggest this place and if we'll ever go back to Catania we'll stay in City-in Hostel for sure!Keep up the great job you are doing!

The shower was really nice! The staff spoke English, which is not very customers in Sicilia, so that was a real treat for us. Everyone was very helpful and our room vas very comfortable. Thank you


Lovely hostel in a great location! Beds were comfy and clean and there were large lockers for each person in the dorm. There was also a free breakfast at a nearby cafe every morning which was very nice. The wifi often did not work in the dorm room, but everything other than that was great!


When i did my reservation, I paid for a price 'all charges included'. however, i still had to pay extra money on site for the 'city tax' . This is an extra cost that should have been mentionned when i paid for the booking!


Very friendly and helpfull staff. Great kitchen facilities. Room a little bit too small and hardly no space to stand upright,. but very clean and towels were changed every day.
