The hostel is in really good location, has lockers, clean bathrooms etc. The only thing that annoyed me was the radio blaring for hours on end.. I love music as much as anyone but a blurring radio station on top volume throughout the hostel is just annoying when you are tired or jetlagged.. Also the staff were shouting at 10pm to each other outside our room. A little more awareness that people like one girl in our room are trying to sleep would be good..


The hostel is good, but there is no air conditionating in the rooms and the city is really warm. One of the grils in my room turned off the ventilator and it was impossible to sleed. The roons are noisy if you want to sleed but the location is really good and the bathrooms are clean and individuals. There is no breakfast.


The hostel is very small, but the rooms are good and they have a nice balcony. It is clean and silent, has a good location. The problem was when they did a mistake with my reservation - on my second night there I arrive at night and they simply tell me I have no bed anymore, the hostel was full. It would have been comprehensible although very upsetting, if they had admitted their error, but they just denied it and were very rude. They even denied calling another hostel in town for me at first!

great staff, nice hostel , 2 minutes away from the main street/amphitheater. Clean and great conditions/facilities


Very nice hostel in Taormina. Staff were very helpful with recommendations on things to do and places to eat. Location was great.


Nice hostel with lovely outdoor terrace to relax. Rooms were a bit hot at night time and could do with air con or extra fans. Wi-fi didn't really on the terrace but only minor issue really as it worked well inside.


The hostel is the only one available in central Taormina so slim pickings. It's pretty small and pokey and though the outdoor terrace is nice, there isn't really a good common area and the atmosphere isn't great. We had a mum and her young son staying in one of the beds of our all female dorm room which I though was abit inappropriate and compared to the other hostels I've stayed at in Sicily the staff weren't as helpful, welcoming or friendly as other places.


Very clean and location is great,I recomended..


Excellent staff!

like this place because of its very close atmosphere, roof terrace, nice people,


Great hostel, and definitely the only one like it in town. Anything in the city is a bit of a walk from the bus or train, but the hostel is in a good location for seeing the old city. Great kitchen, working WiFi, facilities, extremely friendly and helpful staff, etc. The atmosphere is a bit hectic though, with cramped hallways and a lot of activity. Definitely a good stay regardless.


This was a great place and a friendly atmosphere. Very much like a community or like visiting a friend. The bathrooms and showers are cleaned twice daily. Everything is very clean. Lots of fun decor and encouraging things strategically placed around the hostel - items to write home with, a book share, lots of guides on the surrounding area, etc. They have a quiet policy from 11 pm to 7 am which is nice. Would definitely recommend this to any traveler coming through beautiful Taormina

Great location, helpful staff, nice terrace with a beautiful view. The private room was very clean and comfortable, but had no windows.


Hostel Taormina is amazing! Staff was very helpful and the hostel was in a great location.


Good,location, good views on the outdoor terrace. Minimum security between rooms. Not much selection for hostels in Taormina was this was one of the only options.


Wonderful hostel in a beautiful town. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the hostel itself was just a few minutes walk to the centre of town. It has lovely dorms and a sunny terrace too. Great experience.


Terrible place to stay. Staff, or perhaps manager/owner, was very profit oriented. Everything she did was about making money. No one takes a person's passport in advance just to make sure that he returns to check in again later. It's ridiculous. The hostel was very messy, poorly organised, cramped up, and the living areas were dirty. The beds did not have individual electrical plugs which was a hassle. You do not sell peoples' forgotten belongings, nor do you take a person's passport for no caus


Decent hostel, in a great location for exploring the city. The staff were friendly. Lacking a common room though.
