Lovely owners- very welcoming and friendly. They offer you loads of info on the area and deals- they can arrange beach days/transportation etc. Room for 3 had a little balcony and a terrace adjacent- handy for a bit of outside space and hanging laundry. This was communal for all guests. The bathrooms were cleaned frequently and the place was well-kept....

Taormina's Odyssey redefined the hostel experience for me. It is family-owned and the atmosphere was that of a peaceful and comfortable home. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated (I stayed in a shared room, two friends I met were staying in a private room). I appreciated the fact that bathrooms were cleaned daily. I appreciated the breakfast, which was...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Taormina's Odyssey. The family was extremely welcoming and the helper, Juliette, was at the complete disposal of all of the guests. Everything was kept extremely clean and breakfast was included in the low price for all rooms. The Odyssey is in the heart of Taormina, making it easy to travel around the city and...

Place was very cosy. Nice clean and colourful rooms. Really nice roof top terrace for your own evening drinks. Supermarket close by so can do own cooking. They do close reception in the middle of the day, so if your checking in early you'd better confirm. Its also about 20 mins walk up hill from the bus station and through...

This is my last of 8 days here at the Taormina's Odyssey. This family fun guest house is more like living in their family home. The affordable and accessible position of the guest house made it very attractive for me, but becoming a part of the family, was the icing on my cake! I've made several recommendations already to friends...

More a family guesthouse than a hostel. I chose the dormitary that was cheapest but cold and plenty of humidity (unfortunatly weather was bad at that time). I would suggest to ask for the rooms on first floor that looked clear and confortable. Very well located, 5 minutes from the center. Good value for money for Taormina where prices are...

We stayed here for 2 nights, and I wish we could have stayed longer! We arrived very late at night after an overnight ferry from Tunis and a 6 hour train trip from Palermo. The Guest House was a little hard to find - if you stay here, make sure you get directions from the establishment as they have moved...

I stayed at Taormina's Odyssey at the beginning of October. This is a very charming guest house/hostel. The building is well designed and the interior decor is traditionally Sicilian.
