I am quite old for these kind of places but I have to admit it had everything I really needed: shower, and bed. I slept with earplugs really well and the people who work there were very kind and helpful. there is a small breakfast for if you early enough which is just enough toget you going.

This review is only of the restaurant and live band, which were both fabulous. If we'd wandered where the heart of the city was in the evenings they were here. It was a massive ghetto street party. Haven't seen one of those in a while. The vegetarian food was superb, and despite the massive crowd the waiters would appear out... More

We only went to the bar here because we had rented an apartment nearby. Great place for a beer. Nice music and atmosphere. Wad surprised by the belly dance routine but it was entertaining. Service good. Avoid the mojito though, very poor which is strange given that the fresh limes are so good in the area.

We booked a double room that was lovely and clean, although they didn't give us any towels. The hostel has a restaurant. The service was more than bad. The girl at the door was so rude and even spied on us when we did eventually get a table. The cous cous was the worst I've tried and all their vegan... More

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
