    The place is wonderfully located, both Ortigia and the archeological site can be reached by 15 minutes walk. The staff are kind and always at you disposal, they even put up with our changes in the booking and kept us all together through variation of our group numbers. Very clean, good breakfast and lockers/linen included. I couldn't suggest any better, and for very reasonable price.

    I greatly appreciated the cleanliness, lockers, air conditioning, and space to leave luggage after check-out. Location is close to the train station, between Ortigia and the archaeological site, both easily reachable on foot. Receptionist was very kind. Only thing that could be problematic for certain people would be air conditioning noise, but it's a hostel so bring earplugs and a sleep mask :) Excellent place for young travelers, great value for money, I would definitely come back!

    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.

    Convenient location, good kitchen and spaces inside and out. My bed was on a mezzanine level so above the air conditioning - very hot at night, but I didn't ask to move as only staying 2 nights. I'd advise requesting another bed if staying longer. Staff were very friendly and helpful but the place lacked a bit of atmosphere. There wasn't really anything to bring the guests together.

    Great hostel but a bit of a walk from the main tourist areas. The hostel itself is very nice and the facilities are great. There's a lot of space to chill and meet with other people. The kitchen is also very well stocked and very clean. Overall would definitely recommend this place.

    Ortigia island is amazing, and the hostel is close enough and easy to get to and from so its great. the wifi only worked in the common room that at times was too crowded by a group (and the air conditioner didn't always work) so that was very annoying. The staff was helpful, and breakfast wasn't good.

    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.

    The hostel has a good location for public transport and the facilities are promising, with huge common areas. But half of us in my room had to swap beds because the system they use doesn’t really work, which is a pain when you come back at midnight to find someone else has taken your bed, and you have to get new linen and make a new bed up in the dark... Also the air conditioning is not good. Even if you’re lucky and it is working, you barely feel the difference.
