Gianni House is located 3km from Taormina, 20 mt from the bus stop that will take you for excursions throughout all of Sicily, and walking distance to the beach. This is a hostel where you will feel like you are in a hotel, and still enjoy the low price of a hostel. Everything is possible in Gianni House, as it is our goal to be listed as the best hostel in all of Italy! Gianni House is the Best choice for your stay in the Taormina - Naxos area (The first Greek colony in Sicily).
Here is why we are the best:
1. Our location is optimum, and 'close to the action in Taormina'!
Location is of extreme importance when selecting a hostel because the cost and stress of commuting into town often becomes a major expense. The major bus stop for the area is directly in front of the hostel, and we're just 3 km from Taormina. We are a very short walk to the beach (you can view the sea and mount Etna from our terrace), we are also a short walk to the city centre of Naxos. Because we are centrally located, you can easily visit two towns for the price of one!
2. We are the cleanest and most comfortable hostel in the area.
If you have stayed in hostels before, prepare to be amazed by the cleanliness and efficiency of Gianni House. All rooms have ensuite upgraded bathrooms and new beds. We are travellers as well and understand how important it is to have a new clean bed and mattress to sleep on.
3. Our activities and fun factor is unsurpassable.
We know what it takes when it comes to bringing people together for a fun time! Pasta parties are a weekly event where travelers can taste authentic Sicilian cuisine, and wine.
4. Safety is of extreme importance at Gianni House.
We are located in a safe neighborhood and have a locking system ensuring that only guests are allowed access to the property. Your personal items will be
safe here as well since lockers are available for your luggage. We also offer Free Parking directly behind the hostel where you can keep your car.
5. Information and assistance is always available at Gianni House!
We are experts of the Taormina - Naxos area and we want to make sure that you are informed of the area is well. That is why you will receive a map and detailed explanation of the area at check-in. If you have any
further questions, we will take the time out to answer and explain anything further to ensure that your trip is memorable. Travel guides and books are available for you to read at no cost as well.
6. Our view is by far the best!
