Decent hostel run by very friendly and helpful staff. Fairly clean in general, although slightly cramped, perhaps because of too many guests. There are great views from the terrace, although one has to walk through a dorm room to access it, which is rather strange and slightly annoying to those occupying the room.
Directions could still be a bit better. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location but a significant walk from bus stop. Good patio and meeting area. Dorms on par with price. Kitchen facilities good. On the night we were there staff told guests to vacate terrace and go to common room so people could sleep.
This is the only hostel in Taormina - therefore, it was a little expensive. The people in the hostel were looking for party, and it became really noisy during the night. The staff had many signs on the walls, asking people to be silent, but many did not respect it, and I did not see the staff acting. I had a bad night of sleep...
Staff is very friendly and the location is perfect, close to the main atractions in Taormina.

Excellent advise and a map from the personal! It was a cozy hostel. Only thing we didn't like were the mosquitos. And couple more toilets could be usefull. It was more expensive than other places we stayed in Sicily, but it can be because of Taormina is such a tourist destination. However it was good value for money.
Staff were incredibly helpful, gave loads of info about places to see, prices, transport etc. Small therefore easy to meet fellow travellers. Locationcould not be better, beautiful terrace.
We spent two nights in Hostel Taormina, and it was a very nice stay! The staff were really friendly and told us everything we needed to see in Taormina, where we could eat, get a drink, dance ... The terrace is very pleasant in the evening, but should be better arranged to be more welcoming. Negative points : we have to pass through the rooms to get to the terrace, and although the bathrooms were cleaned twice a day, the ground was wet most of the time.

+The hostel is ideally situted, have a huge open air space with an amazing view and is very chip for Taormina. - You have to pay 1,5€ for towels, breakfast is not included, after the check out if you want to use the facilities it's 5€, the staff isn't really aware about touristic activities, No air conditionning.
The staff was absolutely wonderful! Very helpful.
It was a wonderful stay at Hostel Taormina. Especially the staff was wonderful! They were very kind and they gave some great tips of what you could do at Taormina. They also helped planning a visit to the Etna. One of my favoriete places so far!

This hostel was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great, right near the main street of Taormina. The terrace is really nice and a great way to meet people. I loved it so much I stayed an extra night! Francesco and his staff do a great job, I'd definitely recommend staying here.
This was a fantastic hostel in a great little town. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and big, clean facilities and the terrace was a great place to socialise. Great location just a minute walk from the main street Corso Umberto. I stayed an extra night I loved it so much, I definitely recommend this place.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, wifi worked great, and the rooms were clean. The atmosphere wasn't the best for meeting new people because there isn't really a common room, but other than that, it was a fine place to stay.
I can't speak highly enough of this hoste. All the staff were incredibly helpful and giving with suggestions for restaurants, bars, gelaterias and sites to see. They also created a very fun and positive atmosphere in the hostel and no one was left out. If I'm ever in Taormina I will definitely stay here again!
This hostel was clean, comfortable, well run and well located. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It's terrace overlooked the town and sea- very beautiful.
Definitely among my best hostel-staying experiences! From the moment I arrived, Francesco, Clelia, Natalie and the gang made me feel at home! The balcony has a stunning view of Taormina (a huge plus) and the facilities were much nicer than they looked on the website. I had been wavering between this hostel and Odyssey hostel before I booked, but I for anyone else having the same issue, Hostel Taormina is the way to go! I had a great stay in Taormina and will definitely be back!
Great friendly staff. Amazing location. Nice rooms and well maintained bathrooms and kitchen. Balcony overlooking the town, with the sea in the distance, not bad at all.
Wonderful hostel in a great little town with beautiful beaches. The front two dorm rooms are used for access to the balcony but the hostel has lockers to secure packs. Balcony to be vacated by 11pm; a policy adhered to by guests when I stayed (2 nights). Nice place to sit in the early evening. Short walk to the bus station, short bus ride then to the train station. Staff were very knowledgeable re bus and train times for onward journey.
The staff were the best part! Clelia at the front desk basically took the time to plan out my trip in Sicily! Francesco also was super friendly. Bathrooms always clean. It's a pulley ride away from the beach (or a nice long 20 minute walk) so it's not exactly central, but i think it was a really friendly place! I ended up extending my stay. There's a kitchen, so you can save some money and cook (even though the food in Taormina is amazing!) and sit on the patio and drink wine and socialize.
