    Timbuktu Hostel is the best hostel I have stayed in Europe! Close to beaches and mountains, it is perfect for people who love the outdoors. And it is also close to the center of town. The place is super clean and with a great laid back vibe. The staff is helpful and very friendly! But the best aspect of this place is the atmosphere. Undoubtedly, a great place to meet and befriend other travelers. Honestly, I don’t know what else you need in a hostel!

    I don't usually give 10/10 reviews, but oh my god. Best hostel ever. First of all, the facilities and the physical hostel are amazing - rooftop terrace, cute garden, rock climbing wall, greatly stocked kitchen, nice rooms with balconies, a cool bar and patio with couches and tables, a lounge with a TV, couch, and working area, and more. But more importantly, the people are amazing. We stayed there for 4 days and already felt like part of the Timbuktu family. Miss everyone already!

    I rarely give a 10 but honestly there is nothing to criticise about the hostel. They got it all right, it's all very well organised. Comfortable place and clean. There are simple and clear house rules for everyone. The staff were very helpful. 👍

    Probably the best hostel in Sicily, maybe Italy. Expect to extend your stay within the first day. Warning: you might stay forever.

    Legends. Definitely one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at. Extremely welcoming vibe caused me to extend my stay by two nights immediately upon arrival. Possibly the best hostel kitchen I’ve seen. Staff is top notch. Extremely clean facilities. Would stay again 100%.

    Lovely homely hostel, where I met a load of really nice travellers. Location is OK (a ten minute walk to the centre/beach) but the house as a result is quite spacious. Dorms were decent, with quiet (non-squeaky) beds, and kept very clean. Best hostel you'll find in San Vito Lo Capo!
