I'm so so happy with the hostel! We got clean towels, AC remote, homey kitchen and living room and the breakfast was lovely, must try the Nutella Croissant and Granitas!

This was a clean hostel and the rooms looked lovely from what I can see on the Outside. However, I stayed in a dorm where the room was never locked and people coming in and out all the time, unsure of if they worked there or were staying. Manager was having an argument with someone including physical contact in my room while I was there. Did not make me feel safe at all. Breakfast was despicable, 1 euro to spend in a vending machine.

Private bathroom should be in the room, not in the corridor.

I truly recommend this nice, cozy hostel. The breakfast is in a café near the hostel,it's the italian breakfast,so coffee and croissant,brioche (enough energy to start your day). Around the castel there are great bars and restaurants ( e.g: Gammazita, Trattoria da Antonio). The location is perfect! Enjoy Sicilia!

Average hostel with average staff. I met some great fellow backpackers though which is always great. I won't stay there again as I have no reason to.

bad directions! i would say: get to Piazza Duomo, @one of the corners of this piazza theres road called Via Giuseppi Garibaldi - follow this away staying on the left of the road. turn left into Via Castello Ursino &follow until you see the castle in front. turn left when you see the castle to keep the castle on your right &walk uphill. stay on this road - the hostel is just after the castle on the right, pizza place underneath. v clean, good kitchen, avg wifi, air con in rooms, laundry available

It's very well located, a few minutes away from the centre. The sir who received us was polite, although not very welcoming - the staff was, let's say, confusing. We booked a room, but we actually got kind of a garret, with a ceiling measuring no more than 1,50. So, a very small room for two. Everything was clean and the bathrooms were fine. The breakfast was great, fresh croissants and an employee helping us with the coffee machine. Good for staying one night - and no more than that.
