the hostel , and host are brilliuant, so much to see in Taormina;


The place is very good to discover both Giardini Naxos and Taormina; what is more important, the owner is most helpful and caring! I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for accommodation in the area!


Best place at travelling ever!!


First of all... The bloke who owns and manages this, Gianni, is an absolute legend. I was the only one there asides another girl because it is winter time and sicily is quiet. But gianni treated us like kings. Took us for a tour of the town in his car and showed us his farm. Great location with bus stop right at the front that can get you to all of the local tourist attractions. I will return in peak season just to see this place when it is fully flying with backpackers.


Very kind staff and nice breakfast as well as the kitchen! Thank you so much!


Everything was perfect expect the bath water, very hot and very cold and very hot and very cold. Location is perfect, bus from airport directly stop almost in front of the hotel (name of the stop is 'Renault' , and from Renault stop you are very easy to connect to other places in Sicily. Surprise was that Renault has no so much tourists like Taormina; Room is very cute and clean, staff is really helpful. Will go again.


I highly recommend everybody to stay in Gianni House, you definitely gonna love it and want to come back soon! The rooms are impeccably cleans, with own bathrooms,lockers,confy beds and one side have an amazing view to the ionian see!The hostel has a very friendly environment and when I was there I met people from all over the word!As they have a good kitchen fully equipped, most of the travelers stay there cooking and chatting. The beach is just 5 min. walking and is the best spot in Giardini!

Thank you for a great stay! This was my second time staying at Gianni's house. Located a 15 minutes bus drive to Taormina but close to the Recanati bus station. Beach and restaurants a few minutes walk away. Warm welcome and useful information and tips by the staff. Clean and very comfortable rooms. Highly recommended.


The hostel alone was good. Beds were the comfiest I've had so far. unfortunately the location was a let down. There is not much close to the hostel and it is a little quiet for a solo traveller.
