Lol is the estimate hostel I've stayed in. The kitchen is well equipt, the location is good, and the staff were excellent. It could be improved only by making the wifi signal stronger in the dorms and out on the patio. The air conditioning was greatly appreciated!

LOL Hostel surpassed my expectations! There has evidently been a lot of thought that has gone on behind the scenes as to how make a travellers stay as easy / enjoyable as possible. Every travellers issue / problem had been planned / accommodated for e.g laundry services, bus/train services information, internet access, kitchen appliances. The hostel was designed in such a way to maximise sociability by having an open plan kitchen and nice outdoor eating area. The staff were a wealth of knowledge

Next to the train station hostel. is near by. rooms but special. Breakfast was alright. I would not expect more for the price. The food thing was that you could drink as much coffee as you wanted So on the whole a nice hostel

The staff was nice and gave great recommendations on what to do on the city and region. Location is also good, on walking distance from the main spots. There is a really nice lounge, kitchen and open area, and the rooms were also well equipped (good beds, air conditioning, etc).

Super great spot, right in the middle of everything. It's a 10min walk to Ortigia and the Archeological park. The hostel was great, super clean with really friendly staff. Wifi was a little iffy in the bedrooms, but other than that we had a great stay! Would definitely come back here!

Very nice hostel. Clean and organized. Walking distance to old town and all the tour sites. Very quiet at night. Staff seem reserved and left us wonder maybe we were welcomed for some reason...

Everything is perfect. It's really easy to go everywhere for example Modica,Noto and Siracusa. Also thanks a lot for having a breakfast before 8:00 a.m..

close to the bus and train station, new hostel, kitchen to cook your own food, spacious, good securety -> Always staff present, breakfast, good, good value for money, only minus the bathroom/shower is a bit small for the ammount of bunkbeds in the dormatory, otherwise it's the most spacious and newest hostel i have been to in Sicila, maybe even for Italy, I planned to stay 2 nights but I stayed longer, 4 nights

Couldn't be more happier with own stay in Siracusa. The staff were fantastic and so friendly. The kitchen was well equiped and was always clean. Our room was really nice, good pressure in the shower, clean, good lockers. Only down side which I can think of, and I'm being very picky, is that the floor in the bathroom got very wet after a few people showered so it was a bit slippery and would smell a bit after a few hours. Was always cleaned though everyday so wasn't really a problem :)

The hostel locates near the train station but in a zone quiet enough. When I arrived, they gave me a bed which had not yet been ready, so I had to take off the sheets, however, it was not a big problem for me, as I definitely need to arrange my own bed whatever. While I stayed the hostel and the room are not noisy. The breakfast is basic and the service time is a bit late, from 8am.

The atmosphere at LOLHostel Siracusa was really cool! Very bright and friendly and I was surprised that there was also a (small) breakfast. And I liked that I could get there any information I needed about Siracusa and Sicily.

PROS: Superb staff, so helpful with tips in own and full of fun! Free breakfast, typical Italian style (which means not much to offer but still for free); Nice terrace for brakie. CONS: A bit out from the old town; Shower from my dorm doesn't drain very well, water everywhere after a shower. TIP: Don't go to the Roman historical sites, it's terribly organized and got very little to offer. Spend your €10 in a nice trattoria instead.

Very impressed with the facilities, the cleanliness and the interior. Beautifully designed inside. Ideal location for buses, trains, Ortygia and archaelogical park. Also good restaurant recommendations from staff. Would stay here again.

Pros - good kitchen facilities, and a nice backyard for dining (and breakfast) - really close to the bus station - a cheap supermarket nearby - clean - quite quiet if other guests did not make a lot of noise Cons - somewhat boring place to stay; not very distinctive although nice overall - a bit long walking distance to the old town - air at the room was quite humid (airing helped if the door to the balcony was left open all the time) Overall: ok place to stay, does it's job well.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, thanx for ur comment. Atmosphere depends on people, we can't do much when they prefer their smartphones to interacting, but luckily it is usually nicer; We are just 10 mins walking from the old town but also 10 mns from the archaeological area, halfway between the two: being closer to the former would mean being farther from the latter; Weather was humid during your stay, but rooms have strong aircon with deumidifier: closing the balcony and putting it on would have been better
