    The hostel was great. Central located, clean, nice roof top terrace and adequate breakfast for a hostel. Some of the staff are volunteers and so the hostel has something very cozy and homely!

    I really liked the hostel! The room I stayed in was huge and had a beautiful fresco on the ceiling. Only thing that “disturbed” me a little was that there was a lot of noise during the night coming from the counter (watching videos, loud music from the phone or computer). Personally I prefer when the hostel is quiet during the night. For the rest, all was very good.

    Wir kamen total erschöpft im Hostel an und wurden sofort herzlich empfangen. Die Lage ist perfekt, mitten im Zentrum, besser geht’s nicht! Es ist sehr sauber und es gibt ein gutes Frühstücksangebot. Balkone mit Blick auf die Hauptfußgängerzone und den Piazza Duomo, der voller Leben ist. Die Mitarbeiter im Hostel sind überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir wurden super mit Informationen über Catania versorgt. Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert wir würden jeder Zeit nochmal kommen!

    This is definitely the best place to stay in Catania because of the beautiful ceilings and the location at the heart of Catania at the Piazza Università and very close to the epicenter of nightlife.

    A very nice hostel, with clean and simple rooms. The roof terrace is amazing and the hostel is super central. Only minus is, that it’s very noisy, so to it being central, so pack your earplugs ;) Also the reception is open 24/7 (so it seems) and the stuff one of the friendliest I have met in Catania! Thanks for having me :)

    I stayed three nights. The Hostel is in den old city centre, the location is fantastic. Stuff is friendly and helpful; the rooftop bar is great. They have free breakfast but only until 09:30 am, though I never tried it because I was asleep. No espresso machine, but they have a coffee machine in the common area. The rooms are big, the beds good and they clean the hostel every day. If you need a advice where to go ask the stuff, maybe they will join you. I had a great time and would recommend it!

    The kitchen is great and dining area is spacious. And even if its quite a big place the staff is really amazing and helpful and makes you feel like you belong to the family. The location is amazing, its like in the middle of everything, right on the „elephant“ square (Duomo). The roof top bar is also really great, people from outside come here too. The only thing I found difficult is the plastic wrapped, worn out matraces. You can feel and hear that plastic underneath you. I didnt sleep too well
