Location is of extreme importance when selecting a property because the cost and stress of commuting into town often becomes a major expense. The major bus stop for the area is directly in front of the property, and we're just 3 km from Taormina. We are a very short walk to the beach (you can view the sea and mount Etna from our terrace), we are also a short walk to the city centre of Naxos. Because we are centrally located, you can easily visit two towns for the price of one!

If you have stayed in properties before, prepare to be amazed by the cleanliness and efficiency of Gianni House Backpackers Hostel. All rooms have ensuite upgraded bathrooms and new beds. We are travellers as well and understand how important it is to have a new clean bed and mattress to sleep on.

3. Our activities and fun factor are unsurpassed.
We know what it takes when it comes to bringing people together for a fun time! Pasta parties are a weekly event where travelers can taste authentic Sicilian cuisine, and wine.

We are located in a safe neighborhood and have a locking system ensuring that only guests are allowed access to the property. Your personal items will be safe here as well since lockers are available for your luggage. We also offer Free Parking directly behind the property where you can keep your car.

We are experts of the Taormina - Naxos area and we want to make sure that you are informed of the area is well. That is why you will receive a map and detailed explanation of the area at check-in. If you have any
further questions, we will take the time out to answer and explain anything further to ensure that your trip is memorable. Travel guides and books are available for you to read at no cost as well.

6. Our view is by far the best!

I had the most amazing time at Gianni House! The property was in an ideal location with plenty of great shops and super close to public transport. The activities they offer at reception were great value and made my time there so special.
