The room and bathroom were nice and clean, and the owners were super friendly! Location is very good but area is still quiet (you are really able to sleep) because it is not on the Main Street. Breakfast was also very good - especially the coffee! Definitely worth of the money!

It was a lovely vacation, one of the best. The owners of the hostel are very friendly and we had a great time being around. The city is marvelous, there are interesting places to see and the hostel is near the main street of the city. The room we had is clean and nice. We enjoyed the whole time there... More

The prices are good and it is 5 minutes walk to the main street but the hostel was dissapointing. There is only one toilet and one shower as far as we could see between 4 rooms, some of them dorms. The room was cold and the sheets were damp. So much so that we had to leave and find another... More

We went there in March as a 2nd location of our Sicily tour. Very nice location, friendly family run hostel, affordable price. A charming little guesthouse, with a very clean and comfortable room. We had a bit of trouble with the overflowing bath (as mentioned already elsewhere) but no big drama here. The breakfast was excellent, fresh food sourced locally.... More

The rooms are spacious and clean - and have hot showers next to them. I would highly recommend Taormina Odyssey. It's a fantastic B&B right on Taormina center so is perfect for people who like to exploring little historic towns in Italy. They have an amazing Breakfast.

We visited this hostel as we wanted somewhere to stay in Taormina that was reasonably priced. We had the private room with shared bathroom. It was all very clean and the bathroom was thoroughly cleaned daily. The included breakfast was amazing and was a great start to the day. We did the trip to etna that they ran which was... More

I came back here 3 separate times during my trip because I missed it each time I left. Best to make a reservation for a private room although the bunk bed room was fine. Staff became like family. Bella is a super cute puppy, or was. The only problem was the Vespa noise at 3 am. But well worth it.... More

如果你想體驗南義大利人的生活 來住這裡就對了 一晚16歐不含早餐但很值得 (跟老闆說是台灣的JESSIE介紹的喔) 這裡的房間很乾淨, 離郵局超市(可以買東西回來煮紅酒也很便宜)購物街走路步到三分鐘, 鬧中取靜, 你還可以散步到ISOLA BELLA 不用花錢坐電纜車, 往公車總站方向走,過了HERTZ租車後三叉路口右邊有樓梯一直走可以下去到海邊十五分鐘就到, 周末下午兩點半,還可以在足球場看義大利人踢足球(過HERTZ租車三叉路口樓梯旁邊有足球場 ) I feel like home here in Taormina Odyssey. It is the best B&B/Hostel in Taormina. The room is super clean, friendly people, walking distance to the post office,supermarket&toursit attraction. You can also walk down to Isola bella from Hertz car rentals without paying $ for the cable... More

I am so over some hostel in Europe as they are catering more for American teenagers who are here during their year, enabling them to drink alcohol silly. And so, I was petrified when I booked myself into this hostel because I don't know what to expect. During winter period, most of hotels at Toarmina are closed anyway as it's... More

Me and my boyfriend were very late arriving as we were travelling from Naples, are train was delayed, and we got to Taormina very late. At past midnight with all our luggage and feeling very tired we got lost and the trek up the hill was not very nice. But the hostel owners had offered to give us a lift... More
