    What an amazing hostel! A beautiful vibe with beautiful and helpful people working there. Best bed I ever had in a hostel. Hidden but close to a very busy street. Have already recommended to other travelers who want to see the beautiful city of Catania!

    After traveling in Europe for 1 months, I found this hostel and I’ll never forget it. I met awesome travelers whom I traveled in Catania while staying here. The staff and owners are so cool and friendly. I’ll never forget the last night here they invited me to have dinner with them and their families. I was also able to rest bc they have big beds and was able to focus on writing and drawing since they have a chill place on the second floor. The kitchen and free breakfast was awesome.

    Definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Beautifully restored building, large rooms (spacious in general), high ceilings, wide beds. These huge beds all come with a large locker, reading light and individual sockets. Due to the location in a courtyard, you don't really notice street noise or the general bustle of the city. Large common areas for chilling out, having a drink, or eating takeaway pizza (I highly recommend asking the staff for recommendations!). I would stay here again!

    I love this hostel, the patio area is like being in your own backyard in the heart of the city surrounded by trees and rocks, it's quiet and charming. The bathroom and shower are so clean, and the bed is a full-size bed in a spacious room. The staffs are genuine and great people! I will definitely stay there again.

    I really enjoyed staying at this hostel. The location is perfect. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was yummy. I like the bathroom setup with several bathroom stalls and shower stalls. The beds also have curtains for privacy which is a huge plus.

    It is an amazing place run by great group of people (Alessia, Carlos you guys do a great job). The place is new, centrally located and has a great ambience. What i liked the most is the relaxed environment at the hostel and their true warm Sicilian nature (hospitality). I was lucky to share a nice pasta alla norma (made by Alessia's dad) on my first day for lunch. Grazie a tutti!! If you are travelling to Catania and plan to stay at any hostel, this is the place to be. ;)

    Favorite hostel in Sicily. The layout is great, facilities are super clean, and the atmosphere is super chill. It's also neatly tucked away in an alleyway, so there's no outside noise keeping you up at night.
