    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.

    This hostel is absolutely brilliant! Lovely staff, great location, great facilities and we met other friendly guests too :) On the down side, we did encounter bed bugs. It’s not a problem as long as the management take it seriously and fumigate room 3 and (or) 6. I’m sure it will be sorted by the next season :) I would still recommend this place, we had such a good time!

    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!

    My stay at LOLhostel was amazing. The staff were great and informative. I enjoyed the location as restaurants in the surrounding areas were affordable and it was right next to the train and bus. The room was well kept, they could probably due for some new pillows but the sheets and blankets were clean as were the surroundings of the hostel. All in all, I was so happy with my stay and would absolutely go back.

    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.

    I got a free upgrade from an 8 to 6 person dorm which was nice. The staff is great and gives you a map with recommendations but I feel bad for them having to rewrite it every time. Might be better to just design the tips into the map? I never felt quite clean while I was there. The shower door was falling off, shower matt smelt like it hadn’t been washed in awhile and the washroom floor was a pool after the people in my room took a shower. Overall not the best or worst.
