Rooms are small with tiny beds and not warm enough blankets. Noisy at night due to a neighbouring bar open till late in the night-early in the morninig. Bathrooms not very clean. No wifi in the rooms. Except for the pizza, not worthwile staying there.

Cool Hostel with Great Location. Agora Hostel is the place to stay in Catania. It is centrally located to the train/bus station, the sites of the city, and the nightlife. It has its own bar and restaurant right next door where a ton of locals and foreigners alike go in the evening. The Hostel is pretty good: there is a... More

Great facilities. The staff are really friendly and happy to help. The bar and restaurant are very good and well priced. I have travelled a lot and this is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Highly recommended.

I have been there a few times over the last four years. There is almost always a cool band playing and is a great place to meet interesting people. The best night to go is on a Monday when most other restaurants are closed. The food used to be good, but on my last visit it was pretty disappointing. We... More

I stayed here with a large group during a tour and we were given a room with a key for all of us. It was nice to have our own room. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hostel was of average cleanliness. I recommend brining flip flops for in the shower and walking on the floors. Also bring a... More

Many of the review comments listed are commenting the noise in the area being an issue; the noise of the bar below is the best reason to stay here. Such a fun place and full of locals. If you don't know the city and looking for a low cost to stay then this place is ideal as the restaurant below... More

We only stayed one night in a triple room with its own bathroom. It was clean, good shower, located very closely to the fish and fruit market. Buzzing restaurant and bar just on the corner. Parking spaces right in front of the hostel but not dedicated to the hostel. If you are lucky you have a spot to park. Driving... More
