This place is called a hostel, but I have never experienced a hostel looking like this! They have however several ensuite rooms (which we booked) which puts the standard up to a hotel. As we were there during low season and almost no other guests, the owner very nicely upgraded us to a superior room. The building is an historic... More

We stayed one night in Hostel Rooms Catania. Booking online on the same morning was easy enough. The hotel (calling it "hostel" seems rather inappropriate) is located in the city centre, parking lots were nearby and not too expensive. The service staff was friendly and helpful and told us about the story of this beautiful (at least from the inside)... More

This Palazzo calling Hostel is an understatement, you will see. My room was the bedroom of a baroness and a little bit of that feeling came over me tonight . The reception gave me a lot of really interesting informations for example to choose the best Etna- tour. This location is the best strategic place for discovering the touristic highlights... More

It was among the cheapest options in Catania and I can guarantee you, I was happy with everything. Absolutely nothing negative to say. The owner is a very nice person, who will kindly give you many tips and documents if you need any. The room is simple but the bed is very comfortable and the A/C works perfectly ! The... More

Stayed here 4 nights. It's quite central to most places, abt 1km walk to main bus station. Room is basic but huge and only downside is the private bathrooms may be a slight walk away from ur room.... So dont forget ur stuff. Has good eateries like Trattoria Cavaliere & Streetfood nearby. Owner Carlo was very helpful and gave us... More

Easy to find, really beautiful historical building/palazzo, large, romantic room with old-style furniture and curtains. The bed was fine, the bathroom was very large, super-clean, bright and nice-looking, only that the door has a translucid glass (so you can hear your roommate taking a shower). Do check the beautiful small hall next to the reception, with antique furniture, mirrors, and... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hostel Rooms about a week ago. After being on the road for a long time this place was an amazing find! Firstly the name hostel shouldn't be in the title of the place since it is leagues above any hostel we've stayed in. The rooms are spacious, very clean, warm, and with hot water.... More

I stayed at Hostel Rooms with a friend in December 2012. We drove to Catania from Palermo, and, aside from getting a parking ticket within 20 minutes of parking across the street from the hostel entrance (which is not on the main street), we had no problems finding parking on subsequent days of our visit. The room was large (four... More

We stayed one night only, as we were passing through but we were very impressed at the hostel. It's in an old palazzo and rather beautiful, if plain, inside. the room was very spartan, but impeccably clean and the bed was comfortable. we both slept well. Our room had its own bathroom in the hall outside. It was very clean.... More

Me and my husband spent 2 wonderful nights at this beautiful hostel. The rooms are amazing, very comfortable and clean. The shower is new and we really enjoyed it. It is private but it is outside the room which was no trouble at all. The location is the best- it is right at the center of Catanya and you can... More
