If you're looking for somewhere reasonably priced with helpful staff and easy access to the sites and beaches of Taormina and Giardini Naxos, stop looking. Gianni House is the place. A 5 minute walk from two fun, nice beaches in Giardini Naxos and a 10 minute bus ride from the center of Taormina, the hostel is in the perfect location.... More

I initially booked for three nights, and then continued to extend my stay, again and again! The staff are fantastic and they were the reason that I stayed for a month! I felt very at home and made some friends for life. The hostel is big, clean and has a roof terrace which has a fantastic view of Etna and... More

Stayed a few days here and thought the atmosphere was one of the friendliest hostels I've stayed at - staff were really friendly and helpful, always sociable - rooms are a little warm at night but the dorms have a/c - great kitchen for cooking, but lots of nice restaurants nearby if you're feeling lazy. 7 minute walk to a...

Dear Gwenii72 Always a pleasure to read such positive feedback and we hope you enjoy the rest of your travels around Italy. It's a shame you left before enjoying one of our Pasta Parties - but I guess the sangria was a good substitute! Happy travels Best wishes Gianni House Team More

There are many reasons why you should choose Gianni House​ for your stay on the East coast of Sicily. First because it is a perfect base (at reasonable prices) to visit the wonderful city of Taormina​, explore the unique volcanic landscapes of Mt Etna or just chill on one of the many Ionian sea beaches. BUT what made me stay... More

Lovely hostel run by lovely, welcoming people! After spending 10 days here, I didn't want to leave. The room are more than what you would expect, the bathroom exceeds expectations and the breakfast is a perfect way to start the day. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone and would definitely visit again! :)

This hostel is in a great location just outside of Taormina. It is only a ten minute drive to Taormina and a ten minute walk from three great beaches. It is actually nicer being outside of Taormina, in Giardini-Naxos, because this town is more local, less expensive and has the best beaches. I recommend the beach Lido di Naxos. Gianni,... More

Nothing bad to say about this hostel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and you get a good breakfast for fair prices. But the highlight is the family that owns the hostel, they are so friendly that you feel immediately like beeing at home.

This hostel has clean rooms to offer and good amenities - The number of people to bathroom ratio is very good, which I consider very important.

Gianni House shaped my whole experience in Sicily. This hostel is run by a Sicilian family and they make everyone feel welcome. On arrival, the staff provide you with maps of the area and a nice introduction. The hostel is placed in the lovely area of Giardini Naxos, but is only a bus ride away from Taormina. This way you...
