    Fabulous relatively new hostel with large rooms and extra size beds and large lockers. Extremely clean and fresh, and Salvatore is a great host. Breakfast is provided, with cooked option available for 3 euros. Very close to the bus terminus, a bit further to the trains. They also run Mt Etna tours from the hostel

    The best hostel stay in Sicily! I stayed at The Yard Hostel when I first arrived in Catania and Urban Pop at the end of my trip. Urban Pop was 200x more enjoyable. If you're in Catania, you won't regret staying here! The location is so close to the city center and to the bus station. Staff was VERY helpful and Salvo went out of his way to make sure guests had everything they needed! Spacious, clean rooms with very comfortable beds. Reception space is open and inviting. Wonderful experience!!

    Guys the place s close to the port and close to the City center. Literally 5 minutes from the center. The atmosphere is amazing. The stuff is very nice and friendly. They welcome you with a tour of the house and coffee and a good talk on the city. The place is situated at the 4th floor of a very new building. The hostel is impossibly clean, very well furnished, it has a very large living room and a pretty big kitchen too. Great experience. I’ll definitely book it again, when I go back.

    UrbanPop is an amazing hostel. Salvo who runs it does a great job. He is an extrem honest, friendly and helpful guy. The facilities and the cleanliness are the best I have seen in a Hostel. I liked the atmosphere. It was quiet but at breakfast and around/after dinner one would meet each other on the big table and chat. Not a party hostel at all but that could also be because of low season. Small disadvantage: Train station is not too close and the road is a bit noisy. Thanks Salvo and crew!

    Salgo is the best host! He was very helpful with our travel plans and even tried to help with my missing luggage. The hostel is still very new, so it’s clean and has an artsy vibe. The location is great, just a few blocks from the market and the main plaza, as well as a bus stop. Highly recommend!!
