I cannot recommend this hostel enough. Easily my favourite in Sicily (perhaps in Europe), conveniently situated in what became my favourite city in Sicily. The staff are terrific, the breakfast great, the size just perfect to meeting people. With a great location literally next door to the train and bus station, and only a short walk from all the places you could want to visit in Siracusa, just book this place. It's relaxed, clean, atmospheric and aesthetically groovy. You'll want to go back.

Very nice hostel! The staff was very kind and helpful. The interior is a bit modern, and it looks good, clean and well organized. The lockers in the rooms feel trustworthy. There is a nice outside terrace at the back of the hostel. Some more couches to encourage more conversation would be nice there, but it was nice nonetheless. The location is great: near the bus station and pretty much near places you'd want to go to. There is a supermarket just around the corner.

This might be the most overrated hostel ever. Let's start with the cleanliness; the bathroom are flooding for every person taking a shower. In one bedroom with 20 people or more, they have 2 showers. One of them you can not lock. The showers and the bathroom are so dirty you want to cry! The staff is ok, but they don't care about the dirt. The location are nearby the train station, but a walk to everything else! And there is tons of mosquitoes inside all the hostel! What's up with that?!

Grea3 nights in the 20bed dorm and surprisingly very quiet! It's split over two floors, so that really helps. The hostel had great atmosphere, facilities, massive common area, kitchen and lounge - open plan. Good outdoor space too. My only "issue" if that's what you want to call it, was that the bathrooms/shower rooms were always wet! Drainage is a big issue in the large dorm shower and the other shower is a wet room (open shower and toilet) so obviously water gets everywhere. Not a big deal...

I was very disappointed with the cleanliness - especially in the toilets and the kitchen. The sponges to do the dishes with and the kitchen towels seemed very dirty. The bathroom that was connected to my room had mould in the ceiling, and we we're often missing toilet paper. The hostel staff was very friendly and the

The place in general is good value for money. The only cons I found was one of the doors in the sowers did not work, so anyone could open it and the drain had a blockage.

The hostel is incredible, near to the station, clean and comfortable. The staff helps you and shows which places have to visit in the city. I'll repeat

This hostel is a great base for exploring Syracuse. I enjoyed staying here. Lovely outdoor terrace, it was a shame the bar wasn't up and running in the evenings to promote socialisation. Unfortunately, the experience was tainted somewhat by a large French school group who dominated common areas and used all the already unreliable wifi. Wifi was very poor in dorms and only marginally better in the common areas. Cancellation policy is too strict.

Shaky metal beds, room felt cramped, spotty wifi upstairs in the rooms. Other than that, an overall good experience. Location can't be beat.

Bathroom could have been cleaner but in average a nice and clean place to stay. There were two aircons in the room which made our stay a chilled one. If you wish to use the kitchen after your check out this hostel charges you a fee.

LolHostel is a one of the best youth hostel we stayed in. It is close to the train station and the location is easy to find. The hostel is clean and secure. The staff is friendly and there is a perfect outside area where you can meet, discuss and drink with other travellers. I highly recommend to book this hostel if you want to visit or stay a few days in Siracusa.

Great hostel! I would really like to come back. Everything was clean and there is a large kitchen and terrace. It was very easy to meet other travellers and the atmosphere was wonderful. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. They also sell drinks for very reasonable prices. The hostel is very close to the bus and train station, which was very practical.

Hostel was okay, but did not meet our (high) expectations, based on reviews, photos and awards we found on the internet. Possibly due to the few other guests (so atmosphere was lacking), but also due to the disappointing breakfast and very small shower.

Owner Comment (Hide)
there were 50 people in the house in the 7 days you were here, and some of them have left enthusiastic comments about the atmosphere. Sure with 300 sq meters of common areas you will not have all people concentrated in a small room. Shower is 70x70cm, which is obviously not a jacuzzi but it is larger than the average shower box in Italy, comfortable unless you are Shwarzenegger. Breakfast, apart all the typical hostel things, includes fresh croissants which you will usually not find in hostels

We absolutely recommend this hostel. It is less than 200 m far away from the train station, which was actually a perfect location for us. The twin room was very nice and clean. Staff was very helpful and breakfast was actually more than Ok.
