We loved our stay in the apartment as it has a great balcony and room with a view: You wake up with a lovely sea view. All utilities were working although its quite small apartment. The bed however was not complety pleasant for us. This is always a very personal judgement but we recommend to get a more proper bed...

Hostel Taormina is a very convenient and nice place to stay. First of all, because of the wounderful, friendly and helpful staff and the best location. The most amazing top sightseeing places of Taormina are very near: main street Corso Umberto, Greek Theatre, Madonna della Rocca, etc. Secondly, exciting panoramic view from the terrace, overlooking town and the sea.

It is by far the brst hostel i visited in sicily and probably from Italy too! The staff is really kind and knows a lot about the city. If i had the chance I would stay there again. If u go ask for the ice tea made by the staff!

Taormina is a small paradise. Loads to see; castelmola, mazzaro beach, the beautifull garden and piazza with views on the Etna. stayed 5 nights and liked to stay longer. It's a bit more expensive then staying in Catania but worth it

I went there for two days and finally I spent there one week. Excellent view from the terrace and great staff. The girl at the reception was so helpful and gave me many suggestions about Taormina and the surrounding area. The three bathrooms were clean. Price includes a locker next to the bed. I'll be back next year!!

I stayed at the hostel mid of March and I love the location of it!! The views are amazing! The facilities are rather basic, two bathrooms and a small kitchen. The rooms are great, with lockers and directly connected to the big balcony! I did not get to spend too much time with the owners but they seemed like really...

Francesco S, Direttore at Hostel Taormina, responded to this review

we are very sorry for these three stars, because we do not deserve and make us risk the first position that we maintain for a long time. This is simply because of the price assessment can not be assessed a whole structure and in addition to this point, we can say with absolute certainty that we are the cheapest in...

I'm going to start with the facility: - The place is clean and the decoration is cool. - Great WiFi signal. - The kitchen has everything you might need. - Amazing views from the big balcony. - Comfy dorms, with blankets and a pretty safe locker - Everyone speaks good english, and that's not something you'll find everywhere in Sicily....

I really enjoyed my stay at Hostel Taormina. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The new dorms that should be ready this summer look like they will be wonderful. Fantastic view from the balcony over the whole of Taormina.

I booked the private room on the ground floor. It was tastefully decorated and well furnished. The staff at the reception were super friendly and helpful. I loved Taormina. The property is a short walk away from the start of the main shopping street (once you walk up to it from the bus stop).

Our beautiful city, the Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, that is rich in culture and natural beauty, awaits you with its beaches, mountains, monuments and history. We are here to welcome you and to help you discover our city and its district. Taormina is wonderful in summer and, because of its mild weather, it is wonderful in winter too. Furthermore, behind the town there is Mt. Etna that, in winter, has a mantle of snow, perfect for those who love to ski or to slide slowly down its slope. Taormina is the starting point for excursions to the whole of Sicily, where you can admire the Sicilian Baroque buildings and the classical and architectural beauty of places like Noto, Modica, Ragusa, Syracuse, Agrigento, Palermo, Acireale, and Catania, where there is “nightlife” all the year round. Our hostel has cosy shared bedrooms. The use of sheets, pillowcases and blankets is included in the price. Hostel Taormina has large, bright, cosy bedrooms, that are furnished with personal wardrobes with padlocks and have large shared bathrooms, where cleanness and comfort are always guaranteed. The hostel offers discounts with bars, restaurants, pubs, beaches, rentals (of cars, scooters or bicycles) laundries,for excursions and a shared area for relaxing, chatting, playing or reading and a solarium with a large terrace and a breathtaking view of the Greek Theatre, the sea and Mt. Etna. We are always at your service and ready to help, giving you suggestions for your holiday here.We are here to plan your holidays in the best way possible and, above all, to meet you.
