It is camping right on the beach. That is excelent. We are family: 2 adults and 2children. Therefore we took a 4 bed "dormitorium". Ir is quite small and humidity keeps. But if use it just for sleeping, it is o.k. (evenings could be spent on terrace).


I enjoyed my time at Villagio Europeo. The facilities were very rustic yet clean, and the staff was helpful. The pros of this facility include its location (a private beach only a few minutes by bus from downtown Catania with access to buses, trains, airport, etc.) and price. We were even able to call them and cancel one night f our stay, for which we were not penalized. The cons include having to pay for internet access and an unreliable bus system. Overall, though, a rustic yet pleasant stay.


Considering this is primarily a campsite, the hostel part was different to what you might expect in a regular hostel. But it's literally right on the beach which makes it completely worthwhile! And I stayed just before the peak summer season so the value for money was fantastic. Although the facilities are a little old and wearing down (as expected by a beach at a campsite), they were clean and worked (mostly) well. If you want a place to relax by the beach this place is perfect


For 8 euro it's hard to complain, but throughout my stay there were bugs throughout the room and in the bathroom. You could not shower without the whole bathroom flooding and the beds were so uncomfortable and small that you could not sit on them without hitting your head. The nice part was the beach, but getting there is a mess and the directions horribly vague and unhelpful. It's also located far from the city center with not a lot around it with infrequent buses.


It was a great experience enhanced by the charming and well accommodating staff. Location is just perfect, great value for money.
