The girls that work there are amazing. Amy, Holly and Sam were extremely friendly and helpful. Little disappointed that there were no pasta nights as I had read about them, however there were none whilst I stayed there. The location is actually very nice, close to the beach and close to restaurants. The girls at the hostel are also very... More

Great hostel with a great host! Clean, choice of privates & dorms, nice breakfast that you can take up on to the roof .. View of Mt. Etna from there...A 5 minute walk to the beach. Do a boat trip of the bay with Antonio too when there!

I had a very pleasant experience in Gianni's house. It is close to the beach, close to public transport and very clean. The room was very nice and enough space and the breakfast abundant with a nice terrace where you can enjoy the view just when you get up. I would definitely go back if I had the occasion and... More

After a month of youth hostels in big cities in Spain and Eastern Europe, Gianni House was a fantastic change. I stayed for 7 nights of peaceful bliss. I spent many an afternoon up on the terrace and had to show all of my friends the view via Skype. The staff and other guests were very friendly and helpful and... More

First of all, the staff and especially Gianni is overwhelming friendly! You're feeling so welcome right from the beginning and it won't stop! Gianni is explaining everything, so you can't miss anything ;) The rooms are clean and safe with private bathroom. Breakfast is really good with fresh fruits, juices, bread rolls and cereals. One highlight is the rooftop. Try... More

This was a great place to stay just outside of Taormina. Gianna and his staff were very friendly and the view of Mt Etna from the rooftop were great. It was nice to have a private bathroom in a private room. For my full review, you can go to http://www.thiswaytoparadise.com/gianni-house-hostel-good-budget-place-stay-giardini-naxos/.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Gianni house in a private double room. It was very clean and had a wonderful view of the ocean. Sunset was absolutely gorgeous. We also enjoyed our private bathroom and were very impressed by the shower's size and water pressure. After a wonderful night in a great room, we woke up to a... More

nothing is exaggerated, Gianni House can truly rival a 3-star hotel for a mere fraction of the price. i've traveled the world over, stayed at dozens of hostels, Gianni House is truly top-notch, extremely clean, very modern, no cheap construction materials. In a lovely, quaint neighborhood, near the beaches. Great location away from the hustle & bustle of the main... More

This hostel is a must go in Taormina. Even if it is a little far away from the main city Taormina, it has an owner who will make you wanna stay there forever. Kind and lovely, Gianni can spend hours and hours talking about all you have in Sicily, where you can get good thinks and landscapes. He will give... More
