    I absolutely loved my stay at the Yard! The staff are so friendly! Salvo can make any drink you can think of, and it will be the best one you've ever tried! Beyond that the hostel is decorated beautifully, the beds are extremely comfortable, and I always felt extremely safe. The bathrooms were amazing and always clean. The hostel is located almost directly in the center of Catania and you can get anywhere on foot, or hop on a bus in the nearby station. Overall I would highly recommend the yard

    The Yard Hostel was one of the most beautiful hostels I visited. But more importantly, it was THE cleanest hostel I have ever seen. As there were still not many travellers on the road because of Covid, only a few people were in the hostel, which led to a very familiar atmosphere.The owners also contributed to the fact that I felt very comfortable at any time. THANK YOU, GUYS!

    The Yard Hostel was a gem! We could only stay over for one night but wish we could stay for a few days. The facilities surpass my expectations by miles, the bathrooms are beautiful, clean, big and light. The Dorms are very large with enough space for people to repack backpacks and reorganise themselves on trips with really big beds. The private room has good security yet easy to get into and no need to carry keys everywhere. The bed was amazing and large with a big window.

    This hostel has great location, but also it was suitable as a “base” for several day trips, for example Etna or Siracusa, as many attractions, smaller cities and sights are close-by. We ended up staying a bit longer. Additionally, we were provided with lots of insider tips. We would totally recommend staying here.

    A testament to how to run a hostel. Three young owners (a brother, sister and a friend) have exactly the right attitude: provide the best atmosphere possible and always put the guest first. Always available to answer questions and give advice and welcoming from the off. The hostel itself is well-thought out layout and facility-wise: good showers, large, spacious rooms with double-sized mattresses (a real treat). I can thoroughly recommend this hostel and will stay again without question.
