I loved everything about Gianni House! The hostel itself is very clean and the roof terasse is amazing with breathtaking views of Taormina and Etna (which was erupting while I was there). The staff gave me a warm welcome and made me feel at home, they went out of their way to help me with every question I had. The location is great too, because it's only 5 minutes away from the beach. It's also close to the nightlife, so at night you can go enjoy the roof before going out with new friends.

Lovely staff, very helpful. Some things are under renovation which caused a few hiccups which may be good to let people know in advance! No big deal though.

Gianni House is a home away from home. Perfectly located within a easy walking distance to the beautiful beaches. A very high standard of room cleanliness is maintained and the breakfast has lots of variety! Gianni

Would recommended this hostel for sure! One thing though, the (private) room could do with a fan as there is no air conditioning... Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay there.

We stayed at Gianni house for a couple of days. Our experience was nice but we point out 2 disavantages: no elevator (we need to climb the stairs with our luggage for 2 floors) and we had to wash our own dishes at breakfast.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Gianni house and was made to feel really at home by the staff who are very approachable, friendly and willing to help. It is, without doubt, the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in and Gianni has real pride in his hostel and a passion to cater to a travellers needs.The location is perfect.Close to the beach, bars and restaurants.Five minutes walk to the bus station and a bus stop right at the front door.Really good breakfast and roof terrace with stunning views.

My friend and I were extremely impressed with our stay at Gianni House! We felt safe, comfortable and all resources were closely accessible. The staff was very helpful and informative. Out of all the hostels we have stayed at this was by far the best in all categories. Highly recommended to all travelers!

It is a very good hostel. BUT, if you just want to visit Taormina, then it's not for you, cause you nees take a bus each time. I enjoy my stay, because it is super close to the beach in Giardini Naxos where is all the party. The staff is amazingly friendly. Breakfast OK, and they have air conditions on the rooms, which is very usable in summer.

Rooms and bathroom very clean. Breakfast was simple but good. Handy to have parking at rear for free. And close to all the happening sights of giardini Naxos. Just a bit of a boring atmosphere within the hostel. And great pastichieria out the front..

It was very quiet there, not a lot going on as far as meeting other travelers in the hostel. Someone from a different room was able to use their key to open my room. But the staff were amazing, very friendly, and the location was nice as it was near the beach and a main train station. You do have to take a bus to get to the actual village of Taormina.Taormina is a beautiful town, and so is the surrounding area. I recommend going on the 35 euro day trip to Gole Alcantara and Mt Etna

It is very good located. Its like just 100m by foot from the bus station where you will take off from the center or airport. Staff were really kind but a girl from uk seemd a bit pushing us when she was explaing fhe overal rules and conditions. But still kind.

Gianni House is the best hostel I have stayed in. It really does have a home away from home feel to it. The owner Gianni and his staff members, Holly and Amy were really friendly and made me feel very welcome, and had a lot of knowledge about the town and great day tours and fun things to do at night. The hostel is VERY clean! And has a really great atmosphere, quite a few different places for guests to meet and hang out together. I will definitely come back again :)

Best hostel experience I've ever had! The first night Gianni put on a delicious free pasta party which we enjoyed on the spectacular rooftop whilst watching Mt Etna erupting! Was a great way to meet people.Gianni and the staff all really friendly and go out of their way to help you.Hostel clean, safe and perfectly located in an idyllic good value area - few minutes walk to beach and right next to the bus stop to Taormina. Recommend doing Antonio's boat cruise - was awesome and great value!
