    Was travelling for a month and this is the best hostel I stayed in! The staff was very friendly and the place was great to meet other travellers. The rooms were very big and clean, comfortable beds, big lockers, one bathroom for each dorm. Hot water is sometimes a little slow to come, but don’t let that stop you from booking; go ahead, it’s worth it! Wifi connexion is excellent, breakfast buffet amazing, huge common area...perfect! Very close to train station and all major sights. Very safe.

    The staff we're wonderful and very helpful. Give me wonderful tips and recommendations of where the locals go. Only a ten-minute walk to downtown / 2 minute walks from train station making it a great location. Thanks for great and good facilities. Highly recommend for anyone staying in Syracuse.

    Excellent location next to the train station and 5 mins walk from the bus stop. Very clean and modern with comfy bed. Very good breakfast. The only downside is that the wifi didn't work in the covered outdoor area or outside. We had to sit inside which, altho very clean and spacious, is very dark. Apart from that, we had an excellent stay and would return. Grazie mille!

    Great in terms of facilities (wifi, lockers, kitchen), & knowledge sharing from staff. Not on Ortigia Island but so close to the train/ bus station it’s so easy to day trip and get in/out. There’s good cheap eats nearby. They could organise some events; ie walking tours, cooking nights as the bar wasn’t really used & you can’t bring alcohol. They also had a group of students come for dinner one night which was awkward and not communicated to guests. In future this could be better handled.

    This hostel is of walking distance from ortigia. The place is very nice, staff very friendly. But the rooms are too packed with people, too many beds per dormitories and therefore it can be very hot inside the room.

    Staff friendly and helpful, but didn’t show where to find the kitchen, bar etc. at check-in. Dorm large and clean. Bathrooms similar, though one of the doors to the two within the room was broken - wasn’t an issue as dorm was less than half full, but not ideal. Atmosphere wasn’t great, but again hostel was quiet being the off-season. Located next to station, an easy walk to Ortigia (old town) and Parco Archeologico. Reasonably priced considering it’s the only hostel in town. Decent.
