    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!

    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 :)

    Nice hostel in a fantastic location right in the city centre. The hostel staff was very friendly and helpful. I can't really say a lot about the atmosphere because i spent most of my time outside of the hostel, but the amazing rooftop that turns into a bar in the evening surely promises a nice place to meet new people!

    Mitarbeiter waren megafreundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Zimmer sind groß und das 1. Mal dass ich das Gefühl hatte, etwas mehr Privatsphäre zu haben, durch Vorhänge an den Betten. Das Frühstück ist vielfältig, morgens wurde noch frisch gebacken. Zentrale Lage.Zu Fuß ist man flott an der zentralen Busstation,an der Warschauer Straße von Catania :D & an der großen Einkaufsstraße,in der sich in der Nähe ein schicker Park befindet. Und neben dem Hostel, die große Gelateria. Richtig gut und preislich ok

    Beautiful old building with impressive frescos. Very spacious room. Location right in the middle of the city center. Good breakfast included. Nice common area. The beds had curtains, but unfortunately the upper beds don’t have a roof or something, so when the lights are on the curtains don’t help. Each bed comes with a shelf and a light. The dormitory was next to the living room so it was clairaudiant, especially when one group started partying after midnight. Obviously no quiet time at night.

    Perfect location. Nice staff. Nice rooftop bar. Bathrooms should be cleaner. A bit over priced considering it is a bed in a dorm.
