    Love this location. Beautiful view from the little balcony. Loved the beach. Beds alright. Pretty quiet at night. Bathroom good, though shared with at least 6 people, from what I could tell. We did some washing here and it dried so quickly. I would come here again.

    Fabulous

    12 Jul 2019
    One of the best views of Taormina! The hostel is small but good, located close to the beach (so keep in mind you will have to go up to the city when needed - huge stairs or public transportation... not a major problem). Rooms were ok, a little bit small but comfortable and with air-con. To the downside, there is only one bathroom for everybody. This wasn’t a huge problem for us, but worth mentioning. Overall super recommend it, Taormina is lovely!

    Fabulous

    My stay at the Cohen hostel was overall very enjoyable and I would go back if I ever have the chance. The only two downsides are that there isn’t really a place for luggage, except for under the bed (if it fits), so there’s security in that aspect. Another thing I didn’t like was that there was only one bathroom split between about 10 people. The location was amazing though, with the beach right across the street and the view was beautiful. The host was also extremely nice!

    Very Good

    04 Oct 2019
    The hostel itself was nice with a great location by the beach in isola bella the 2 person female room was clean. The downsides are that there are no storage lockers at all in the hostel, room or other. When I called previously I was told they had lockers But not the rooms, but when I arrived I ended up having to leave my back locked to the bed the piano at the main entrance. The staff are adamant that people won’t steal from the bags but you never know. Second check in hours are not 24h (10-20)

    To find the hostel is very difficult, there is only a little sing at the door cover by the `plants. We were given a diferent room from the one booked and we were not allowed to use the commom areas as the terrace and the kitchen during our whole stay because they were reserved by a group. the bed sheets were very old, the bathroom was tiny and the decoration shabby. On the positive side the lady in charge made us a disscount for the overbooking and the location is very good.
