    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.

    This is a great hostel. Possibly the best ever, depending on what you look for. It's very very clean. Beds are so comfy. The hosts are great people who love what they do. The property is protected from street noise and wonderfully decorated. Everything you want or need is within 5 minutes walk. The bus to the train or airport is right outside. Don't hesitate to stay at the yard.

    This was a beautiful hostel and the staff were very welcoming and friendly from the moment I walked in the door. They have all the facilities you could want including a well stocked bar, hairdryer and free shampoo and body wash. The whole place was extremely clean and there are several sociable areas, making it very easy to meet people and hang out in the hostel. A great experience!

    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.
