That's an amazing place. It's really beautiful, well designed, the staff is amazing! I enjoyed everything about my stay. The beds are huge, they clean all of the spaces every day, they would give you information about the city, they are always there to help. The hostel is just few steps from Via Etnea, and great bars and restaurants at Via S. Filomena, also close to the central station. There is a bar where you can buy some drinks and enjoy your evening with other people from the hostel. Amazing stay!

This is one of my favorite hostels ever! It is very beautiful and clean and chill and full of friendly people. The hostel staff were the most helpful staff I've ever met and they let me play music and perform concerts at the hostel which was cool and they even tipped me each time I played!!!! WOW! The beds were also the most comfortable beds I've had a hostel! Their really cool family hangs out there too which gives it a very Italian vibe! I highly recommend! Great location too!

The place is just something extraordinary, from comfortable beds to the place itself and excellent customer service! The location is super central and safe, 10 min walking distance from bars and restaurants. The place itself is incredible, a hidden jewelry in the center with incredible terrace, comfy beds in specious rooms! Very clean! Amazing and helpful staff that provides “homie” feeling. Felt very welcomed and like at home, had incredible time and definitely will come back for another week or even longer.

As a lone traveller I stayed for four days over New Year to walk on Etna. The dorms were beautiful and the beds spacious and comfortable. The kitchen perfect for cooking fresh fish and pasta from the markets. Walking to the beach or around Catania or picking up a trekking tour on Etna was simple. Every part of the hostel was spotless. But most of all the young owners and management could not have been more welcoming helpful or friendly. Such a great place I’ll definitely be returning to continue my explorations in Sicily. Thank you everyone for the most memorable New Years Party ever!

This hostel was fantastic- clean, secure, good location. The bed was amazing it was full sized single (possibly bigger even) and it had a light, two USB ports and another power point, curtains round the bunk and was very comfy- ask for a bottom bunk if possible as people said it was hard to get up- they also had a laundry service for 4.5€ per load, but they didn’t have a dryer, only Aires Only negative would be that it is incredibly hard to find as the sign is small and it is an internal drive and that there could be more social activities- however I did go in off season so wasn’t very busy- there was also construction but didn’t bother me as they didnt start till a reasonable time - one thing that did bother me however, was a builder smoking next to an open door outside me room meaning I was laying in bed breathing in cigarette smoke, as a non- smoker this wasn’t great.

This is the cleanest hostel I’ve ever had the pleasure to stay in, even the communal bathroom was funky, fresh and super clean. The owner takes a lot of pride in his hostel and it shows. All staff were super friendly and accommodating, brekkie left nothing wanting and there was plenty of room in my locker for all the shopping I did in Catania. I even left my luggage at the hostel on checkout until late in the afternoon after my Etna tour finished. This hostel is super safe, super clean and super cool.

This place was all that it could be. Clean, respectful, socially great, and awesome staff. 100% would return and this is where id stay again. Wifi is great, brekky is great, staff know all the places to go to visit and eat. And its tucked away So you feel so relaxed there.
